Sorry Mario BrosSorry Mario BrosSorry Mario Bros2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Say what you will about Anita Sarkeesian, you gotta admit that people do take note of what she says for good or ill. In this piece of news, it's for the good.
As you might already know, in her latest video she outlined a simple "damsel frees herself" video game. Nothing too spectacular but it showcased how one can subvert the typical trope and make a strong female character out of it. While many were quick to criticize her for not making the game herself (given her kickstarter success), others took a more direct approach and actually made a game in 2 weeks.
The game is called "Sorry Mario Bros," and the plot is that Princess Peach decides to rescues herself by leaving Bowser's castle in world 8-4. You progress right to left through familiar, but slightly altered, original Mario Bros. worlds working your way backwards towards world 1-1. Along the way you can take detours and use Peach's float ability to reach hidden areas and collect "princess coins."
ZUKO IN KORRAThis information is from the 'Welcome to Republic City' game on Nick.ZUKO IN KORRA3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Guy's it's official. ZUKO IS ALIVE
And Zuko has a daughter who is now Fire Lord.
Some more information further it says:
three years ago, Zuko turned over the reins of the Fire Nation to his daughter. Officially, he's retired, but unofficially, he still travels the world as an ambassador for world balance.
This statue of Zuko stands in the center of the busy Central City Station, and is a reminder of the many accomplishments that Fire Lord Zuko made while helping build Republic City.
Don't Get CockyBoycotts never work, but crying foul and making a stink on the internet? That seems to be becoming the standard method of enacting change in the recent days. From Microsoft pulling a 180 on it's DRM policies to Nintendo localizing the "Operation Rainfall" games, yelling and screaming like a whiny brat seems to be the best way to get our voices heard.Don't Get Cocky2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Nerd Girls: Nothing to Prove

This one is way worse... Also the ACTA will restrict internet. NZ already has the system in place. I talked about it a while ago. The three strike system basically means your internet provider is monitoring what you do and will cut off your internet if they think you are downloading illegal materials.
By the way SOPA and PIPA aren't dead yet, PIPA is being voted on the 24th and SOPA has been delayed as far as I know.

Why You Should Still Be Experimenting As we began our trek into the world of art most of us spent a decent amount of time experimenting to find our niche.Why You Should Still Be Experimenting1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
But for many artists, once they find their place and style they often stop listening for any other callings.
What Exactly do You Mean by "Experiment".
Trying new things - of course we should experiment and text our tools, that's one of the first steps to becoming an artist in learning what you're working with and how to use your resources and tools to produce the best outcome for your art. What this article is about however is going outside your style and technique.
Why Should You Experiment?
Experimenting is a crucial part of learning. It's also a giant piece of expanding, improving and adding to what you already have. Imagine if the first thing you created was all you ever did. I'd be taking photo after photo of the sunrise: two problems with that are I'm not a mining person

PETA kills animals!You thought PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) was bad enough in targeting Nintendo's most-loved video games?PETA kills animals!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Peta has made a new game attacking Nintendo: Pokemon Black and Blue.
It takes place in a world where humans and Pokemon hate each other, and humans are cruel to Pokemon. All the Pokemon in the flash game are bloodied and beaten up. Your mission? Fight against the humans and free the Pokemon! Pikachu is even holding a sign that says "I support Team Plasma."
Clearly, the game's creators haven't finished B/W yet...
Cheren is a drunk, Professor Juniper is a crazed scientist, Ghetsis wears a Pokemon pelt, and Ash... guess what... HATES PIKACHU.
If you thought THAT was messed up, they have other games- "Mario Kills Tanooki", and "Cooking Mama Kills Animals".
It gets worse! Did you know that PETA, although they claim to support animal rights, actually KILL animals themselves?
Did you know that PETA killed 95.9
