Metroid AnalysisThere are many science fiction games that lurk within the gaming world today. But there will always be one that will have a special place in our hearts. Metroid has sold millions of copies worldwide and made bestselling lists time and again. Yet as popular as these games are, there are still many mysteries and unsolved theories and questions revolving around the series. However, there has been speculation as to the symbolism and depth that lays the groundwork and very basis of the game.Metroid Analysis5 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
At the beginning of the game, we notice Samus is dropped off alone on an alien world to fend for herself. She is the only human for miles around in an area grossly inhabited by many forms of vicious foreign life. However, despite this absence of life, most prominently human, we still manage to catch glimpses of various statues and ruins of old temples that litter the godforsaken rock of a planet. Often accompanying these ruins and statues are ancient depictions of some sort of religious context on the w
What Are Furries?What are furries?What Are Furries?2 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
What does it mean to be a furry?
Why are people furry?
What does "furry" mean?
Do you remember being a kid? A young one? If you were an average kid, puppies and kittens were cute, you spoke before thinking, you liked to play around, and everything soft was amazing. Admit it, you had a teddy bear and/or a blanket that you loved. Why? Because, the comfort of softness and all things cuddly was a wonder and, well, a comfort. What if you never had to let that enchanting comfort go?
So, furries are practicers of bestiality and zoofilia, right?
Wrong. Furries are not too different from you. Let me tell you something that may surprise you: FURRY IS NOT SOLELY A SEXUAL FETISH. Wait, but what about all the porn? Yes, some people do have a furry fetish, but not all furries are like this. And even those with the fetish aren't zoofiliacs. If they were, then why do they "HUMANIZE" the animals? Something to think on.
Ok, if it isn't a se

Yesterday somebody on Facebook showed me an extremely well referenced piece of satire that conclusively demonstrated that feminism fights for gender equality on both fronts.
He was right.
For men, the rise of feminism has elevated us from second-class status. Equality and fairness have become part of our everyday lives. In the following argument, I won’t simply assume that certain things are the way they are because of feminism. I will actually demonstrate how feminism was the causal factor that influenced the situation.
Because of feminism, you will never see men who were sexually assaulted by women outright dismissed as objects of a joke in a satirical newspaper article. Long gone are those days! Everybody knows now that men get raped by women, to

"Mom, why did we leave?" I asked as I flicked my dark brown brown appendage. The blonde woman hadn't told me anything, but just drug me off. I was starting to get worried. I wasn't used to questioning her, but what else could I do? It had been a few weeks since we left home, and she said that we would already be home by now. She had lied, and I should have seen it.
"We'll head back soon, David. Right now we need some mother-son bonding time away from the rest of the family." She said without looking back. She flicked one of her darker colored ears as she looked from right to left. The neko blood in her wasn't as strong as it was in me. My mother only had ears, but didn't have a tail like I did. Like most nekos did actually.
"I'm not stupid." I objected, and rooted my feet to the sidewalk. It was dark out, and the city we were in wasn't known for it's helpful civilians.
"I know." Her voice was soft, but stern. "I never said that you were."
"You are acting like it though."
"No I'm not."

The hiss of rainfall on the streets of Fillydelphia was muffled, if insubstantially, by the walls of the crumbling structure Moxi sat in. She watched the city around her, careful not to overlook anything, alleys, doorways, any place where their enemies could hide from her eyes.
"By the night," she muttered to herself, wiping her rain spattered glasses with the end of her dangling patchwork scarf, "how did I get myself into this mess?" She turned back to face the sleeping figure behind her, Dreamcatcher's slumbering breaths came ragged and pained, and it was no surprise, with the blood soaked bandages wrapped around his body. The alicorn had been careful, his blade had bit into Dreamcatcher's flesh at exactly the right points to do the most surface damage, Catcher was only lucky to have been able to escape before any life threatening wounds could be inflicted.
Moxi felt her eyes begin to mist over with tears, and dabbed at them with her scarf as well before turning to regard
WheretheWildThingsAre AnalysisMany of you may be familiar with the tale of Where the wild Things Are. You probably read it at some point during your childhood or you most likely saw the 2009 film. To be sure, it's one of the most popular and beloved children's books to date and is still widely read in many households with young people. This popularity has led to many speculations about the book's nature. Some say there's a deeper meaning that belies the playful adventures of a young boy in a wolf suit. Others say it's nothing more than an entertaining and fanciful tale for youth. However, why would an adult write something as seemingly nonsensical as this? Very rarely is it for "entertainment's sake." Why a wolf suit? Why monsters? Why an island?WheretheWildThingsAre Analysis5 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This

The doors of the jazz club finally opened and people began filing in and out. Andrew and Rabeka looked at each other in delight as the line moved slowly but surely into the club.
Andrew could smell the sweet aroma of food, especially meat. He hadn't had any adequate nutrition earlier in the day. He desperately needed to get some meat into his system, or he'd grow too hungry to bare it.
The inside of the club was a dark smoky atmosphere, yet it still had that 'cool' factor that Andrew loved.
Rabeka was impressed, it was not at all what she thought it would be. She linked arms with Andrew as they walked through he doors, making Andrew blush.
An attractive waitress walked up to both of them. She gave Andrew a flirtatious look, but Rabeka didn't seen to care. Hi, welcome to Smoke, would you like the bar or a booth?
Bar. Booth. They both said at the same time. They took a long glance at each other, bursting into laughter.
Sonic the Hedgehog AnalysisIf there is one figure that constantly rivals the gaming world's Mario, it's Sonic.Sonic the Hedgehog Analysis5 years ago in Editorial More Like This
He's been running around for more than a few years and it's a wonder he hasn't aged at all. But surely a series as long-running as Sonic is bound to have a few dark secrets of its own, something that makes it more than a game or two where you pick up chao and run around in circles saving baby animals.
Many of you will noticed Sonic has not aged over the past 15 years. This is a representation of eternal youth and his constant running from place to place symbolizes the desire to never grow up and remain forever young. It also represents youth's irresponsibility and inability of the young to make lasting commitments. Likewise, Sonic's eternally smiling face and cocky attitude symbolize the overall cockiness of youth and the firm belief that he will never have to face the world of growing up or taking responsibility.
Sonic can also be seen to double as a metaphor for the elusiveness of the natural world.

However, did you ever think that with such an "epic" theme, the creators could possibly have had, say, deeper intentions for the game? Possibly something a beyond what lies on the surface, something beyond the seemingly overly-cliched plot of a young "chosen one" going around the world (or worlds, in this case) to "save the world" along with the blatantly too-shallow-to-be-metaphorical plotline?
Some would certainly think so.
For starters, one of the most noticeable aspects about Sora's appearance is that he consistently wields a large key. But why a key? Some wield guns, other wield swords, some even wield a

From our second floor position we had a commanding position over the street below, gripping my rifle I readied myself for the fight to come. A block away, a small squad of two dozen German troops headed by a Panther tank cautiously made their way towards our position which was at the far end of a T shaped intersection. Those fascist bastards were oblivious of the trap which has been set for them. The rumbling of the German tank was growing ever louder as they drew ever closer, less than thirty meters from the car now.

He gave Rorschach what he took to be an attempt puppy-dog eyes but it was difficult to fall for when it was coming from a sadistic clown with a scarred smile than ran almost all the way up to his ears who smelled almost as odd as he did.
Rorschach popped another cube into his mouth.
