Now Playing Tracks

okay so just a little explanation tumblr. I know that this is one of those things you FLIP OUT about like… everyday, but hear me out. I get the reason for thinking that certain things might be bad because of “sexual” reasons. No I do, hell I was one of you before I saw it in a different light. aka before art school this sort thing is just… well, it’s just there and you don’t care.

Anyways, here’s an example of people getting mad about “over sexualisation” for little reason other that “it’s disrespectful to what every gender is involved! OMG!” however, This game theorist, Mat Pat, explains the reasons why the characters’ original designs and abilities is tried and true to the original goddesses. Now they change were due to fact that people thought that there where “over sexualized”. … how the hell did you come to that conclusion? just watch the video, it gives to a reason why kali has “under boobs” and why she bites down on you. what you want me to explain it? HELL NO this is a good video so watch it! no point in spoiling it!

I know this is sound very tumblr preachy, something I hate. but understand were I’m coming from here, grown tired of this “It’s over sexualised” bs. why? well It mostly comes from the fact that after my time on this planet I’ve grown to ask 2 questions…

1. What makes something “over sexualized”?

2. why is over sexualisation instantly bad?

okay preachy tumblr rant over. return to your cat gifs… which I’m going to do because it’s funner than the rants on here :3

Someone just tried to get me to go to a link to a website hidden on the TOR network. The TOR network is a system designed to give complete anonymity to users and websites and hide both completely.

Because of this, and of how the internet works, TOR Network links have a 98% chance of taking you to either domestic terrorism websites, highly volatile viruses, or child pornography.

I know better than to fall for that, but if any of you are ever given an address that ends in “.onion.to” NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER CLICK IT!

good to know O_O

Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Video Game Tropes vs Women, I wanted to pitch a Zelda game where Zelda herself was the hero, rescuing a Prince Link. 

Clockwork Empire is set 2,000 years after Twilight Princess, and is not a reboot, but simply another iteration in the Zelda franchise. It just so happens that in this case, Zelda is the protagonist. I’m a very big Zelda fan, and worked hard to draw from key elements in the continuity and mythos.

This concept work is meant to show that Zelda as a game protagonist can be both compelling and true to the franchise, while bringing new and dynamic game elements that go farther than being a simple gender swap.

Hope you like it!

This is definitely a great idea, and I’d love to see it executed someday :3

I’ll never understand why it was always called The Legend of Zelda and yet Princess Zelda was never the lead.

I used to call link Zelda until I heard about the Zelda timeline and then soon after play my first Zelda game :P

I just phoned up EB Games asking about their refund policy on 3DS Games. The guy on the phone asked me “What’s the situation with the game?”

I said “It sucks.”

He said “Yeah sure, as long as you’re honest. If you have the receipt, we can exchange it for you.”

FOR THOSE ASKING, THIS IS WHY LIKE THEM MORE THAN *Insert Digital Distribution System Here*

huh this means one of 2 things…

1. jerry have either the best eb games on the planet

2. only one person have ever tried to exchange a game at gamestop before, and that guy got denied

this kind of debunks angry joe’s rant at the end of sonic free rider huh?

No, he's worse than that. He spent like 5 videos on his MGS2 LP to try and find out how to eat the rations. He gets PAID to play videogames. It took him 107 episodes to beat dark-souls, 2 of those episodes he was trying to find the magical "eat rations" R2 button, which was bound to kick on that game

Youtube is personality driven, not quality driven. He isn’t paid to play video game, he’s paid to get people to watch him.

And people like seeing other people fuck up. And if your only issue is that he’s bad at games, you need to re-examine your priorities.

And if your issue is that he’s being paid by Youtube for the ad revenue… the gaming community (and the internet at large) really needs to get over this knee jerk reaction to people making money off the content they produce. People have bills to pay. If they can make money doing something they love and it costs you nothing to see that content, there is no issue here. At fucking all.

It is misplaced anger. It’s getting angry at the person making the content when you should be getting angry at yourself by feeding into his revenue by dragging other people into the mix. I didn’t click that link you gave me because that would do nothing but drag another person into his revenue stream.

A little while back someone was trying to convince me that PewDiePie was this awful person who is ruining gaming by making shouty Let’s Plays. So he handed me a bunch of the guy’s videos to prove he was right.

Now I’m subscribed to him because I love his energy in his presentation.

There’s room for everything, okay? There’s room for good game presenters to help people make informed purchases, for people to analyze gamer culture and the culture of the industry, and for just people making some Let’s Plays to entertain.

In short: We can have TotalBiscut, Moviebob, and all the crappy Let’s Players. And there’s even room for paranoid morons like Instig8ive Journalism. And if you don’t like what they make, you can just change the channel. That’s the wonderful thing about Youtube. You don’t have to watch content you don’t like.

Don’t pretend that someone making money off crappy Youtube videos is some horrible thing that needs to be fought against. You are wrong, and you are wasting your time.

how felt about making money on you tube in a nutshell. now please… let them get back to making money so they can live in shelter and not from a soup can.
