#gamergate

pop-culture-mulcher:

A group of disgruntled gamers who have finally, after collectively combining their brain cells, managed to come up with a unified theory of gamer discrimination that includes Anita Sarkeesian’s videos about sexism in games, Zoe Quinn, every game media outlet ever, the immensely powerful indie game mob, and girls on Tumblr.

Thus far the hive mind has come up with “stop calling me a virgin” and “I didn’t like Gone Home so it was bad and stop talking about it and making everything gay.”

#gamergate is the death rattles for the gamer identity as we knew it. Games are (slowly) diversifying in both content and representation. The media is talking about things like Gone Home and gender in gaming instead of exclusively focusing on hardware specs and how many women’s asses you get to slap in Duke Nukem. Women and people of color are showing up in gaming spaces more and more. “Gamer” no longer means anything except a person who plays games, and some capital-G Gamers are unwilling to let the identity become a descriptor.

Upon second viewing, I have definitely concluded that Guardians of the Galaxy is even better when you imagine it as a tabletop campaign with an increasingly frustrated DM who’s sick of being interrupted.

GM: “Roll 2d10.”

does sims 4 even exist? are they just going to keep deconfirming everything until the game just doesnt even exist anymore?

A present for a friend, who likes the game Don’t Starve and who is going through a weird patch right now.
Referenced shamelessly from here and here.
Time: about an hour (if I’d spent more time I could have gotten the style a bit more consistent with the actual style, buuuuut)

delcat I didn’t know how you’d dress in-game so I gave you a big ole lumpy argyle sweater and basically the rest of the go-to “what a librarian dude looks like” uniform.

Our friend drew my brother and it’s amazing (Toast this is amazing)
Also Del has literally worn that outfit to work, albeit for Halloween when he went as Aziraphale.
