Not the foggiest idea what will go on here but it will be images I suppose what with Tumblr and all.

Oh, I know I have it better than a lot of would-be comics buyers, and that’s what worries me. I’ve had it with the self-appointed gatekeepers in comics. 

if it wasn’t really economically unviable thanks to our new age of Buy-On-Internet

i would love to create a comics/hobby shop where everybody dresses/smells/acts nice

not one where they ignore people who actually know the subject in favor of  Retail-Person-Who-Used-To-Sell-Clothes version #814, mind, but just where the awesome keen nerds also happen to be respectful/helpful

Can we talk about how Guild Wars 2 has not one, but two canonical lesbian couples who aren’t there just to be eye candy but are fully developed and interesting characters in their own right?

Can we talk about how one of those couples features an Asian woman who falls into none of the usual Asian lady stereotypes and of the couple is the more assertive and reckless one, also she’s a badass film noir detective who is basically a female Phillip Marlowe?  (Majory Delaqua

Can we talk about how Guild Wars 2 introduced six new adventurer NPCs as part of an investigative team, and of those six, only ONE was a male character? Can we also talk about how two other recent NPCs, one of whom is basically the mayor of the largest city in the world ELECTED BY PLAYER POPULAR VOTE and the other is a world destroying terror, they’re both female characters? 

CAN WE TALK

ABOUT THIS

can we talk about how this same company, in their last MMORPG, featured an entire expansion set in Fantasy North Africa where you LITERALLY COULD NOT CREATE A WHITE CHARACTER. 

can we talk about this

I would really love to hear more fans talking about these things, but I am biased because I work at ArenaNet. :-)

Newly anointed Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler said this week that it would be OK for Internet service providers to charge Netflix and other companies for a faster lane to consumers.

Wheeler’s stance is surprising given that it…

Dragon’s Crown Review

unpitchable:

Dragon’s Crown is a video game that you can play by inserting the Dragon’s Crown disc into your video game console. Once you’ve completed that important step, you can begin playing the game on your television.

Dragon’s Crown is controlled by a controller. You hold the controller in your hands while you direct your eyes toward the television. It is important to hold the controller firmly and to hover your fingers over the buttons on its surface.

Dragon’s Crown is a video game in which you press buttons. You press buttons in different sequences and at different rates depending on the context. In some situations, you will want to press one button. In other situations, you will want to press another button. Sometimes, you will even press more than one button simultaneously.

Dragon’s Crown is similar to other video games. The sequences in which you press buttons and the effects of those buttons are evocative of previous video games. But Dragon’s Crown is also different from those video games. The sequences in which you press buttons are slightly different and their effects are slightly different as well.

Dragon’s Crown contains images. Notably, the onscreen images change when you press buttons on your controller. In order to press the correct button at the appropriate time, you must watch these onscreen images diligently because the onscreen images are the medium through which you learn important contextual information.

Dragon’s Crown also contains sounds. Just as the images change with the press of a button, so do the sounds. Sometimes the sounds convey important contextual information. At other times, they are just sounds.

Dragon’s Crown functions properly when inserted into a video game console. All buttons produce the expected response upon being pressed and at no time does this functionality falter.

Dragon’s Crown is a great game.

This genuinely made me cry. Heck yes, teachers. 

Yeah, y’know what, Kiri?

It made me cry, too.

i realized lately how much a series of terrible teachers in some subjects and great teachers in others had everything to do with the skillsets i presumed i had

My generation got a cheap college education when we were young, and we’re getting good retirement benefits now that we’re old. Pretty nice. But now we’re turning around and telling today’s twentysomethings that they should pay through the nose for college, keep paying taxes for our retirements, and oh by the way, when it comes time for you to retire your benefits are going to have to be cut. So sorry.

And THEN you’re telling them that they’re the most spoiled, entitled, self-absorbed generation in history. It’s stupid and gross. Love, Rachel

(via rachelfershleiser)

the worst thing is that the benefit cuts arent even necessary

they’re happening because people don’t get how a state is different from their wallet
