tumblr you can keep your glorified nostalgia about the wild thornberries and tony hawk’s pro skater and getting to hold the flea-ridden stuffed lion during the d.a.r.e program and what have you because THIS right here.  now THIS was the essence of the 90s

YOU’LL CALL NOW

oh man it took me literally 2 seconds of this video to remember exactly how the rest of it went

I hated this commercial. Turns out I still hate it.

OH MY GOD THIS DAMN COMMERCIAL

I CAN’T FUCKING STOP LAUGHING its as awful as i remembered it

i cant quite explain this commercial and how it came back to me like

i couldnt remember the exact words by heart but. everything they said chimed in my head like a song i’d heard a long time ago. it was almost rhythmic, buried deep in my memory. it was probably the most bizarre way ive ever remembered something.

I GOT 1.5 SECONDS IN AND MY HEART SANK I FEEL LIKE CRYING

what is white culture

clapping after an airplane lands

Tofu. Has nothing really to make it stand out on its own or any real flavor and instead takes on whatever it sits in or is around for long enough.

If you played Skies at all, on Dreamcast or Gamecube, you know how good this game was and how easily the game stuck to you. You also need to go load up Steam right now and buy Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed.

I forgot how much of a blast the game is, and how much of a crazy rush the Rogue’s Landing level is. And I nearly had to pause at the transition to the second theme of the level.

Buying that game on Steam was worth it just to see Skies done right by. Just one time.

The entire. fucking. level. oozes with the character of the original game and the music brings you right back.

Listen to it. Play it if you can.

(And yes, it’s half an hour long. This is how I roll.)

I just bought my Wonder Woman comic and these were the last two pages. Wonder woman makes me extremely happy.

I think my favorite thing about this is that her nail game is so strong she can casually slice through rope with a thumbnail.

Oh look, another post for my growing “reasons I like Wonder Woman” collection.

Actually the implications of this text are fucking with me because as far as everyone thought only Tirion and Sylvanas knew about Bolvar but now Darion is just kind of casually telling everybody about it?
THIS IS MESSING WITH ME.

I think he’s making this statement in confidence as you, the hero (or one of the heroes/champions), are assumed to be one of the few who would know about it.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U: Music

http://www.smashbros.com/us/music/

Nothing makes me happier than just reading this list of names. So many composers who do such amazing work, and so many games tied to them.

Kenji Ito. Yuzo Koshiro. Yasunori Mitsuda. Motoi Sakuraba. Yoko Shimomura. So many moments tied to these composers alone.

After Brawl, I can only imagine the music work in the next Smash Bros game if they put the same attention they did last time.

(Also very surprised Yuzo Koshiro’s entry doesn’t mention what I consider to be his best and foremost work, the Ys series. Gotta look into which of those I can nab on Steam.)

Video Games, Misogyny, And Terrorism: A Guide To Assholes

http://badassdigest.com/2014/08/26/video-games-misogyny-and-terrorism-a-guide-to-assholes/?utm_content=buffera8441&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

This is my crisis right now.

I want to make games. I spend so much time thinking about it it’s starting to annoy me. Waiting at the signal to walk across the street yesterday I figured out a way to perform logic to resolve multiple buffs and debuffs that modify abilities possibly similarly to how WoW does it. This sort of thing is always going on at some level in my mind. I am a game designer.

The technology, the mechanics, the designs, the characters, the storytelling, the sheer potential of the medium give me so much hope and enjoyment.

But no matter how much I consider myself a game designer, I do not consider myself a gamer. I can’t. I hate what they do to people. They’re exclusionist xenophobes as a whole. Whining petulant masses who cannot bear to share an infinite landscape with a finite population, fighting against inevitability as a medium takes its rightful place as a form of expression instead of a form of escapism.

These people disgust me, and seeing what they do to people scares me. Youtubers who spend their time creating thought-out content to enrich the experiences of others are slowly whittled down by an endless torrent of complaints because they dared like or dislike something differently. Developers and even modders subjected to the constant strain and demands, even when they avoid tackling any serious topics, are burnt out and have to escape the entire field.

I don’t want to waste my time. I don’t want to waste my energy making something for ingrates. And as much as I love games, my distaste for the faces of gaming at this time drive me to despair, that the thing I want most will kill me.

But that’s becoming my main reason to do it. To be another one who is different, to make games to help make them better. To push them beyond, and to do so beyond mere technological advancement. Polygon counts and graphics shaders won’t make video games art. Good stories won’t make video games art. Execution and creativity alone will not make video games art.

The freedom to express any idea in any form and by any creator will be what makes video games art. And changing the majority and scrubbing out these voices, drowning them out with something better, something more positive, will be what makes that happen.

But I’ll be damned if these people don’t scare me.
