Tired of the Video Game IndustryWith the PS4 on the way, the gaming industry is alive once again reminding us how dull and boring and... wrong... it is. Here's a quick summary of some of the things I'm sick to death of hearing about when it comes to video games.Tired of the Video Game Industry1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Polygones = Emotion
I'm sure you've all seen the jokes, but this one stems from David Cage, who gushed over the tech demo of an old man's face for the PS4, remarking about how the only way to get "true" emotion is by bridging the uncanny valley with high resolution models, hi-def textures, and realistic shaders. "True emotion" of course can't be found in books, TV, or cartoons because none of those things can depict the exquisite details of a wrinkled face in true HD glory. I'm sorry to say this, David Cage, but if I can get an emotional response out of 16-bit pixel sprites from Chrono Trigger, or a pictureless book... your logic is faulty.
I'm really getting tired of everything wanting to connect to everything else. I know

News Media out to demonize AspergersI was just called by my Mother to inform me she was livid, and what pissed off my usually good natured Mother?

I have only a mild case of it allowing me to remain a high functioning person, but it's accute enough at first three Doctors misdiagnosed me with ADD back when they still had trouble deciphering the condition (which ticked my parents off as those three misdiagnosis could have saved me trouble in school early on if they could accurately figure out my problems). In anycase I myself am now livid they're now attacking an Autistic syndrome disorder as another of many "ifs and causes" for ratings and media sensationalism.

hmm switching focus.While the major focus seems to of switched to video games, there are still people out there who insist that music is evil. From a website dedicated to breaking down songs and music videos and insisting they are about the occult ( here is their article about Rihanna's 'Umbrella' it's kind of funny what with her being covered in Satan's silver jizz and all http://vigilantcitizen.com/musicbusiness/occult-and-prophetic-messages-in-rihannas-umbrella/ ) To people who comment on videos due to slightly mishearing words so it -has- to be evil.hmm switching focus.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For example. I decided to look up my favorite song off of Metallica's 'Black' album "Wherever I May Roam" I always called this song the "Modern Gypsy" song. Sure enough someone found a reason to call it Satanic. I will just post their comment. Warning, it has bad grammer and ALL CAPS!

The Beauty of the WorldI'm finding it harder to hold back my opinions. Why are human beings as a whole so hateful? How many years of growing and evolving have we had? Why do we come down to the same basic hates, intolerance and failure to understand.The Beauty of the World2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A nature guard for the Aokigahara Forest said it best that we have to co-exist and take care of one another. I like to think that he means humans as a whole, not just one race, or one family. I respect that man for his work and for the lives he saves, but he is right, we have to co-exist.
This world is one we share, I am aware you will live your life and not make contact with the millions of people around the world but we do have one factor that keeps us together. This is our world. Despite the separate countries, we all have this world tieing us together. Also how many things in your home were made in another country?
I'm applaud daily at the hate and the intolerance of others in my country and others. And this goes far beyond race. I'm talking gender, religion
This will be better done here than on Facebook.I am gonna go into a serious debate about the Zero suit. I know that I am liable to get "it is just for fan service!" lines.

That being said.
I have no problem with the zero suit. None. Not one iota. Not even a smidgen. It even makes me like pink, but I love pink when combined with the right color and blue is a right color.
Sure it is skin tight.
Sure it is sexy.
Sure it is treated as combat gear.
Hold on, hold on. When Samus was in the zero suit in Zero Mission, it was not by her choice and she was very vulnerable. When you play as Samus at the end of Other M, she is also very vulnerable. ANY time that Samus is seen in the zero suit, she is in some way, vulnerable.

And Miley Cyrus pissed on the line, crossed it:twice, then took a rocket launcher and obliterated it. And I am not just talking about her VMA performance, or her wrecking ball video.
But that is beyond the point. Since the start started going the way of it seems all female pop stars, she has even been recorded as saying she did it simply because pop stars before her have, everyone has been blaming Liam Hemsworth.

Teaching blame while not degrading my child.So while I was doing laundry, my Daughter pulled over broke our expensive flat screen TV. I'm not even sure it is in warranty. And yes I was mad when I first heard the crash, that instantly turned to fear when I saw my daughter was UNDER IT in tears. I got her out, her head had been bumped and it had landed right on her nose. Her nose was bleeding and she was shaking in fear.Teaching blame while not degrading my child.3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Our TV is shot to shit, there is cracks all in it and I panicked, if it fell that hard on my daughter, she had to be hurt! So I made sure she was okay and that she did not have any damage that I needed to call a hospital over. Then I called my husband in a total mess. I know he is upset, and likely at me, but he knows it was an accident. God I don't know if I could of prevented it. I had a basket of laundry I was carrying from the laundry room to be folded. This litterally happened in the three minute walk from the laundry room to the master bedroom. Anyway, none of this matters.
What matters is how I tried to han
Here is an idea!My friend says "lets stop making games with cutscenes! It seriously destroys immersion to suddenly have the camera ripped out of your character's eyes!

Good way to force every fucking game, despite the kind, into a similar format that would eventually stagnant and become boring, also, am I missing something? When are games called "interactive movies"? I get it for games like Heavy Rain, but really?
Gamers wonder why we are called childish and impossible to please.

When Nostalgia Becomes The Bad GuyMany of us get that feeling right? The feeling of joy when we play something we loved as a kid, yes almost all of us get that. There are cartoons and video games and what not that we grew up with and loved. Some of us may forget about them for years, only to rediscover them later, perhaps even seeing them in a whole new light. As you get older, some things you didn't understand before suddenly make sense now, and you can appreciate that old media more completely now.When Nostalgia Becomes The Bad Guy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The nostalgic feeling can either be painful or joyful, depending on the situation. For instance, if you loved arcade places, passing by an empty building filled with arcades may make you fill up with sorrow. It could be sad for you not to see the many people that used to line up in arcades, pockets lined with quarters, ready to play. Other times, though, it could be a rediscovery. Like, you could find an old game you haven't played for so long, and you sit down and play it and remember all the times as a kid when you loved
Life LessonOkay people, just to show a little kindness towards a child can be very helpful and go a long way. Jason took me and Patty out to eat, it was a nice surprise. Now as you all know, we've been potty training.

follow upI seriously think it is stupid to bitch about high heels.follow up4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Also she very clearly had heels and ankles the black and yellow parts on the boot covers them, and telling people to "go away and stop defending" at the start invalidates their "argument" to petty bitching. If you want to be taken seriously don't come out of the gate acting like a child.
Also going "not even gonna talk about the boob size/jiggle" is talking about it. Especially jarring on a pair of moderately sized breasts that unless they have seen a video can not jiggle on a 2d drawing.
The redesign is clunky and the moving heel is even more impractical than the heels. And when you have a character as Lithe and acrobatic as Samus, the last thing you want to do is weigh her dow

I used to find them funny.
They are no longer funny.
The pictures asking why skinny girls were suddenly more attractive than curvy ones. The pictures comparing women to steaks, the pictures saying a man who goes with skinny girls is less of a man because "Men like meat, only dogs like the bones."
God forgive me, I am sorry for finding these pictures funny. I've finally found myself at my wits end.

When is it going to end?
You can not scream about how your body type, your gender, your hair color, your anything is constantly picked on if you respond by tearing down your opposite. It is unfair to build up one category while you tear another apart. This was the picture that pushed the final straw onto my already breaking back.
So girls who are skinny, like either from trying to be,
Oh lord, help my gender.ountry singer Tim McGraw is in hot water for "slapping" a female fan, but let me explain why he had a right.Oh lord, help my gender.1 month ago in Personal More Like This
He walked out to the crowd, to shake hand and slap hands with memebers of the auidence. He turned to head for some others, a female fan grabbed his leg, I mean full on, grabbed, held on, did not let go, grabbed his pocket, therefore around his ass and started tugging. You can see him him struggling before turning around and swatting. He hits her in the back of the head when he swats, he did not really aim..but by the time she lets go of him, she has ripped a hole in the ass of his jeans.
People are calling him an "arrogant ass" and "completely out of line" because the fan "Paid to be there" and him being aggressively held on to and partially assaulted was "part of the gig".
So self defense and not wanting to get the ass of your jeans ripped out to preserve some dignity are no longer your rights if you are famous.

I play on role play servers, because I love me some storytelling. Anyway while playing with my character Ryckton, my friend who plays the husband of a character of mine got into a spar with this paladin. Not even a violent fight, a spar As in friendly competition where neither party were trying to hurt the other.
Next thing I know, said Paladin went into "PTSD mode" (yes he called it that) where he was "reliving his times in the war" and apparently in this mode it made him stronger, able to focus perfect, instead of you know...swinging wildly and acting on instinct. He was suddenly able to block perfect, was aware of the fact they WERE NOT on a battle field.
In other words, THIS ASSHOLE WAS USING PTSD AS A TOOL TO OVER POWER HIS CHARACTER.
NOT IN A MILLION YEARS
THAT IS NOT HOW IT WORKS!

I think not. This mother loses all credit at "Your bitchy little friend's faces"
It is one thing to dislike your child's friends, it is another to insult them like a the bitchy little girl you are calling them.
I'm all for selling the tickets due to being lied to. But spewing shit like that, pretty much telling your daughter that the reason most of her friends were born was because their parents whored around at their age.
Telling your daughter's friends that their mothers were whores is why they have no father to send a father's day card home to?
No I do not find this description funny. I do not find this a parenting win. I do agree with selling the tickets to teach the child a lesson. A simple, adult description about why they are being sold, I could agree with.
But insulting your child, your child's friends and the -MOTHERS- you likely don't know the first shit about? No, t
