My Top Ten Gaming Villains List Part 1Every has a list of favorite baddies, right? Sure, why not.My Top Ten Gaming Villains List Part 14 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've seen a number of Top Ten gaming villains lists floating around the web for a while and I felt like sharing my own (keep in mind that I'm not saying this list is written law. It's simply based on personal preference and my reasons behind said preferences, so if you could refrain from "I think so-and-so should be on here" comments, that'd be awesome). Note: Most of these aren't ranked in a particular order and I'm going to have to split this into multiple parts due to sheer length.
1. SHODAN (System Shock)
While I've never had a chance to play System Shock or System Shock 2 (its spiritual successor, Bioshock, is probably the closest I'll ever get), that doesn't lessen the fact that SHODAN is probably one of the scariest and intimidating pieces of fictional artificial intelligence I've ever seen.
As the main antagonist of System Shock and System Shock 2, she serves as a dangerous all-powerful AI with removed et

Policy StatementThis is ridiculous to me, but I guess to be 100% fair to all who visit this page, I ought to post this statement up front:Policy Statement3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have made it clear from the outset that I am simply not interested in arguing with people with opposing views over the internet. To disregard that request is, in my view, trollish behavior. "Discussion" is a waste of my time. Every minute I spend "arguing" with someone (who has not arguments, but rather, beliefs) is a minute spent away from poastering, sending emails, making phone calls, trying to raise a little money, and other useful things to advance Occupy/Anon/anti-SOPA, and other progressive movements.
If someone wants to discuss on this page how to advance the goals of Occupy, Anon, anti-SOPA, pro-women, 'green,' etc., or, how to make these poasters more effective (including suggestions and requests), they will be welcomed and their comments will receive a courteous reply. If people want to exchange friendly, admiring, helpful, or even flirtatio

Sorry about the title. It was stuck in my head so I had to xDD.
note: Faving this journal might help with your exposure but it's solely up to your fellow deviants ~
It takes me a while to put these together, so if you commented on my other journal to be featured, please take a look at everyone else's work too. After all, it's only fair that way and if you don't, it's just a little selfish and your conscience will bug you . So yah, share the love, guys!
These are ordered first come first serve style; I will be showing around 50 pieces at one time (I still have a lot to go through and it adds up every time i put up a feature journal), and be featuring once a week as to not clog up your message boxes. It'll probably take ....a few months, so please be patient!

Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKSSo... that last journal was a doosie wasn't it? 500+ comments and counting! Yikes. I can always count on Anita Sarkeesian to give me tons of views, lol. All joking aside, that was a very serious batch of discussions. Anytime we talk about sexism and objectification of women in gaming or geek culture, it's sure to get a lot of responses.Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sadly since Anita is such a hot-topic around the internet, there was more than one person who were trying to claim that there actually isn't ANY issue with the game industry involving sexism at all. To them, this whole idea that women are marginalized or objectified or treated badly both in the gaming industry and in geek culture is just false. It doesn't exist. And any attempt to explain why we need to change things is inherently flawed because there's no reason to do so.
So in the interest of trying to debunk that bullshit, I made a list of sources I accumulated around the internet to prove that this is indeed a problem. I think everyone can benefit f

Shingeki no KyojinOh my God, you guys. I need to share my current addiction with you. Shingeki no Kyojin (literally, 'Advancing Giants', but translated into English as "Attack on Titan") is without a doubt the most amazing anime series I've seen all year. It's only 11 episodes in, so I can't vouch for how well it'll turn out, but so far it is spellbinding. The story is set in a world where the remnants of the human population live inside cities surrounded by enormous walls due to the sudden appearance of the Titans, gigantic humanoid creatures who devour humans seemingly without reason. The story centers around the life of Eren Jäger and his bff/stalwart protector/foster sis/possible secret admirer Mikasa Ackerman, whose lives are changed forever after the appearance of a colossal Titan brings about the destruction of their home and the death of Eren's mother.Shingeki no Kyojin2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ah man. Everything about this anime is just so BIG - the theme song, the scale of the conflict, the stakes of losing, the way cool fighting style
New Snowden Documents Show NSA Targeted GoogleSLATENew Snowden Documents Show NSA Targeted Google2 years ago in Personal More Like This
By Ryan Gallagher | Posted Monday, Sept. 9, 2013
The National Security Agency is keen to portray its surveillance efforts as primarily focused on detecting and preventing possible terror attacks. But a new trove of freshly leaked secret documents suggests that the agency also uses its powerful spying apparatus to infiltrate and monitor multinational companies.
On Sunday, Brazilian TV show Fantastico published previously undisclosed details based on documents obtained by Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The 13-minute news segment focused on the revelation that, according to the leaked files, the NSA apparently targeted Brazil's state-run Petrobras oil producer for surveillance—undermining a recent statement by the agency that it "does not engage in economic espionage in any domain." The Petrobras detail has been picked up internationally, and is likely to cause a serious stir in Brazil. (The country is

I really am very sorry if I still haven't answered your questions/comments, but I'm pretty much about to answer the questions right now. I tend to prioritize providing useful answers and get back to profusely thanking people afterward.
