For any one turning in late pieces: We realize that the event was started at a really bad time, and even with extensions, some people couldn't finish. (A couple mods included, we're human too! ;u; ) So! Even though the event is closed, if you turn something in for it, you'll still get your gratitude crystals.

You now have until May 14th to finish your event piece and turn it in. Usually I'd bite the bullet and make everyone rush it or take the hit, especially since I've already extended once, but since we seem to be in the middle of exam season and we still have quite a few people who aren't ready to turn in ye

The 'Givens' of Nuzlocke StorytellingAll right guys, I needed to make a new journal anyway and this is a topic I've thought about for a really long time. It's about stories and the assumptions we make in order to tell them. Get ready for a great big essay!The 'Givens' of Nuzlocke Storytelling2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I realize after rereading that this post might be taken as very accusatory... I am NOT out to discredit Nuzlocke storytelling as a whole, I'm out to explore the way we tell stories and the mechanisms we sometimes use to do that. The 'givens' I describe here are also called Acceptable Breaks from Reality. I don't think these mechanisms are at all 'wrong' just because they might have unfortunate implications attached, and besides, the unfortunate implications CAN be remedied or subverted with some critical thinking and plot prodding if the author really thinks it's necessary. I write about this so that authors can have a better awareness of possible weaknesses in their story, so they c

Tropes Vs Women: Damsel in Distress Part 3Today marks the 3rd installment of Anita Sarkeesian's "Tropes vs Women in Gaming" series about the Damsel in Distress trope. This time the topic is about approaching the flip side of the coin, games where there is a female protagonist in charge, and why they either fail or aren't enough to combat the reoccurrence of the "kidnap princess" gameplay mechanic.Tropes Vs Women: Damsel in Distress Part 31 year ago in Personal More Like This
Once again... what the hell is everyone getting so angry about? She has a very valid point, AND she goes into detail about both why ironic subversions aren't beneficial to an overall goal of equality, AND offers suggestions on how to make a damsel in distress game work where the damsel is the protagonist you play as and isn't a hyper sexualized character.
All of this is basic gameplay creation 101 stuff, things anyone just starting to make games in the industry should be learning or trying to achieve, and the fact that more people AREN'T trying to fix things is part of the reason why Anita even needs to make videos like this in
The Ultimate DaArt Styles- An Artist Horror Story.Once upon a time, on a little internet island named dA there lived a naked tribe of artists. They dressed in nakedness and painted themselves with bodypaint, revelling in their creativity and their nakedness.The Ultimate DaArt Styles- An Artist Horror Story.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
One day, the most clever of the artists, who also had the biggest head, created a magical tool called the 'airbrush' tool. And it was wonderful. With this new tool he painted portraits and artwork on his naked hiney. All the other naked tribesmen and uncensored women rounded round his round posterior to gaze and marvel at the creations.
One of the tribesmen spoke... 'I wish to do the same as our most clever, and big-headed kinsman, where can I illegaly download this airbrush tool so that I too may paint portraits of my favourite anime characters, game characters and ponies?' The most clever of the artists replied, and he shared his secrets, and soon, all of the tribe, with various levels of skill, adorned their peachy posteriors with pedantically painted portraits of people, and a

2DS and Affleck as BatmanGoodness, I go away for a little bit and the whole internet freaks out.2DS and Affleck as Batman1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, like many, I think the Nintendo 2DS is pretty stupid. But where others go on to criticize Nintendo and screaming bloody murder, I chose to just let it slide because the Nintendo 2DS isn't meant for me so I don't really care one way or the other.
See this is the problem I see with people who bitch and moan about Nintendo. They treat every single announcement like it somehow personally affects them, when usually it's an OPTIONAL thing they don't have to even deal with. Remember during the casual vs hardcore wars of the Wii era and people decrying Nintendo for adding the option to let Luigi play a level of NSMBWii if you failed too many times? Brilliant idea that ensures that players that work at it succeed and never see the option, and players that are duly frustrated after dying X number of times are allowed to still proceed but at a cost. But nope, that announcement was treated a
3DS Upgrade, Unprofessional Pros, and Wares3DS Streetpass upgrade coming soon3DS Upgrade, Unprofessional Pros, and Wares2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In Japan, the 3DS's streetpass feature seems like a no-brainer. It's a small tightly packed group of people who bring their games with them for their public commutes. But in the west... we're much more individualistic and rely less on public transport. As such, streetpass only ever really works if you attend conventions. Nintendo recognizes this as a problem and is hoping to change that.
Participating stores around the country will feature a sort of "relay streetpass cache." Anyone who visits one of these stores with a 3DS in their pocket will automatically get their streetpass info uploaded to a network. Anyone else who visits the store later in the day will download the stored up streetpasses. So you no longer need to have visited at the same time in order to benefit from the streetpass feature! Nice! Some of the locations include select McDonald's and Starbucks stores.
That really gives me more incentive to bring my 3DS with me p
Black Egglocke - Trade stream OFFLINETrade stream offline for good. Thank you very much for all the eggs! I think this'll be just enough for a good egglocke. I can't wait to see what you guys sent me!Black Egglocke - Trade stream OFFLINE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You'll see what I got when I get around to do that little comic.~
I've been wanting to do an egglocke for a long time now but for most of the time the problem has been getting enough eggs. A while ago YinDragon came up with a clever way to get eggs from people and I'm going to use the same method now.
Before I get to the trading business and how things are going to work, let's see what the rules for an egglocke are.
Basically egglocke is just like a Nuzlocke challenge, but instead of catching Pokemon, you'll be hatching one egg per area. Since you receive Pal Pad after your first badge, all Nuzlocke rules take into effect after that.
You need the Pal Pad to trade eggs from people. But why trade eggs instead of breeding your own? Why, because it's more fun when you have no idea what you'll be getting.
Cheery Optimistic Protagonists, Pourquoi?I just realized I wrote a very long rant for no reason. 8I Have fun reading, I suppose?Cheery Optimistic Protagonists, Pourquoi?6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Ah, I have noticed this a long while ago, and it did indeed bother me. :/ Why are the protagonists (in children's TV shows in particular) all so similar? Why must they all be cheery optimistic leaders who talk of kindness and such? :/ Why must they all be so damn annoying? That's why I never liked a lot of characters in those TV shows. Actually, as a kid I don't think I liked ANY cartoon character, really. :/ (except for the characters in "Futurama", and maybe a few others. XP) But then again, I don't think I should be all that surprised.
I believe these main characters tend to be ESFP's, ESFJ's, ESTJ's, and whatever other types are always those overly cheery leaders. :/ Pretty much the most common types. So I suppose a lot of people can relate to these guys. Unfortunately (actually no, fortunately XP) for me I'm an INTP, pretty much in the opposite spectrum of those guys. So I really wasn't

Katherine Ellis, also known as Sio64 is the creator of the very popular steampunk webcomic Crankrats. The other day, I was fortunate enough to have a lovely little chat with her over a cup of tea and a Skype connection; and over the course of three and a half hours, I managed to ask her a few questions about herself and her work...
Zach: Let’s start off with some origins. Can you give us a brief bio?
Sio: Well, I’m not sure how much there is to say really. I live in England, obviously. I come from Berkshire which is about an hour out of London, and I’ve basically been drawing all my life. I’d say it’s pretty much dominated my life, so if there’s anything to say about me, it’s: ‘art art art art art!’ I’ve been all over the world, and hopefully one day I’ll go to America again; sort of a bucket list, SD

I don't usually do call out threads, but today I'm feeling sassy. Besides, the subject of this journal, TomPreston, blocked me a while back. I guess for being a "troll"?
I had seen his comics on the front page nearly every day and didn't think much of them, however after he wrote A Harsh Lesson I began to critique his work. Partially because I wanted to see if he'd practice what he preached (he doesn't) but mostly because he has the ear of many young artists and is sending them many bad messages. Over time critiquing him became an exercise for myself on the nature of comic making, and I got into interesting conversations with various people in the course of posting them.
I stuck to mostly his long-form comic work, and stuck mostly to critiquing writing and occasionally the art.
It came to a point where he seeme
