Ok but ‘666’, paired with the snippet of script that apparently has ‘satan’ in it suggests that the Saints are GOING TO HELL. 

Aaaaaand, Dane Vogel and Dex’s VA have both posted on Twitter that they’ve worked on new voice work for SR. Given that Vogel was killed, and Dex is (probably) blown up, we might be seeing a return of dead characters.

But most imporantly this means we might see LIN, AISHA, CARLOS AND OLEG back

EGM #110

This is a huge feature on women in gaming and the games industry that Electronic Gaming Monthly ran. It contains interviews, editorial remarks, and general cultural information from the time period. It carries a lot of “90’s opinions” (in all the resonances that phrase could have) about women, but I think it is a huge historical resource and I would encourage people to share it around. Publications writing about women in games is not new, and this is something to point to in order to make that case. 

Dead diary, it is day number three. I still occasionally cry about Blackwell and curse everyone that didn’t play it yet.

In case anyone wanted some new games writers to follow, someone was kind enough to make this handy-dandy guide!

Do any of them have Tumblrs?

Jeff Gerstmann, Brad Shoemaker, Patrick Klepek, and Alex Navarro do. Dunno about the rest. You should probably follow Zoe Quinn too, considering how this all started.

Cara Ellison is definitely worth following. Her Embed With series focuses on travelling across the world and sleeping on couches of developers that would have her, including Harvey Smith (Dishonored), Karla Zimonja (Gone Home), Nina Freeman (How do the do it) and many other fantastic game makers.

It’s a deeply personal series and Cara Ellison talks honestly about her life, sex, immigration detention facilities and journalistic integrity when sleeping with Alice O’Connor in the same bed and how it feels to be the smaller spoon and being forced to eat vegan food. 

So great to see Jim Sterling on here. It really highlights how divorced from the real world these MRA dropkicks are. Is Mr. “I Like Boobies and Beer” on here as well? (I can’t remember if that was Ben Kuchera or someone else who manages to be a dudebro without being absolutely feral.) 

I remember that Ben Kuchera was involved in messy business and putting his foot up his mouth, but I don’t know the details myself.

Hiromu Arakawa (荒川 弘 Arakawa Hiromu?, born May 8, 1973) is a Japanese manga artist from Hokkaidō. She is best known for the manga Fullmetal Alchemist, which became a hit both domestically and internationally, and was later adapted into two anime television series.

She often portrays herself as a bespectacled cow. Her given name is Hiromi (弘美?), the first character being written identically to her male pen name, Hiromu.

Arakawa states that Suihō Tagawa, the author of Norakuro, is the "root of [her] style as an artist". She also learned composition and drawing during her time as Hiroyuki Etō’s assistant. She also cites Rumiko TakahashiShigeru Mizuki andKinnikuman by Yudetamago as influences and is a fan of Mike Mignola's work.

 Arakawa was born and raised on a dairy farm with three elder sisters and a younger brother. Arakawa thought about being a manga artist ”since [she] was little” and during her school years, she would often draw on textbooks. After graduating high school, she took oil painting classes once a month for seven years while working on her family’s farm. During this time, she also created dōjinshi manga with her friends and drew yonkoma for a magazine.

Arakawa moved to Tokyo in the summer of 1999, and started her career in the manga industry as an assistant to Hiroyuki Etō, author of Mahōjin Guru Guru. Her own career began with the publication of Stray Dog in Square Enix's Monthly Shōnen Gangan in 1999. Stray Dog won the ninth 21st Century “Shōnen Gangan” Award. She published one chapter of Shanghai Yōmakikai in Monthly Shōnen Gangan in 2000. In July 2001, Arakawa published the first chapter of Fullmetal Alchemist in Monthly Shōnen Gangan. The series spanned 108 chapters, with the last one published in July 2010, and the series was collected in twenty-seven volumes.  When the studio Bones adapted it into an anime series, Arakawa aided them in developing it. However, she later let them work alone in the making of the script so that both manga and anime would have different endings, and to develop the manga further. The series won the 49th Shogakukan Manga Award in the shōnen category in 2004. When the second anime adaptation was reaching its ending, Arakawa showed director Yasuhiro Irie her plans for the manga’s ending, making both end in near dates.

She is currently living in Tokyo and has published three more works, Raiden 18Sōten no Kōmori, and Hero Tales. Arakawa has collaborated with the creation of Hero Tales with Studio Flag under the name of Huang Jin Zhou. In the anime adaptation of the series, Arakawa was responsible for the character designs. She has also drawn the cover from the Japanese edition of the novel The Demon’s Lexicon authored by Sarah Rees Brennan.

In April 2011, Arakawa began a new series called Silver Spoon, serialized in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shōnen Sunday. Rather than writing another fantasy series like Fullmetal Alchemist, Arakawa wanted to challenge herself by trying a more realistic story with Silver Spoon. It quickly rose among Shogakukan’s best-selling titles and an anime series by A-1 Pictures began airing in July 2013. She began writing a manga adaptation of Yoshiki Tanaka's The Heroic Legend of Arslanseries of novels in July 2013, serialized in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine.

From the back:
This is an unconventional story of beautiful Ivy Galvin and her strange emotional involvement with two men — and a woman. Lila Douglas — tall, statuesque and amoral — who could love a man or a woman according to her whims, but refused to give up Ivy… Henry Harper — A writer, but otherwise normal — who was repelled by Ivy’s abnormal relationship with Lila, but decided he wanted Ivy at any price… Chick Neal — who tried to take by force what Ivy yielded willingly to Lila and Henry.

Tagged by hightechzombie again

Rule 1: Always post the rules.
Rule 2: Answer the questions the person who tagged you asked, then write 6 new ones.
Rule 3: Tag 6 people and link them to the post.
Rule 4: Tell them you tagged them.

1) What is your worst prison?

A situation where things look bad, are bad, not getting any better, and I don’t have any power to change it, not by doing something, not by talking to someone who can change it, and somehow, amazingly, I am still forced to function and be held responsible for failures.


2) Is there a person you wish you could be with together? (not necessarily romantically)

I’m a loner, but hell, I would donate three quarters of my liver to meet any of my online friends.


3) Would you prefer losing sight or hearing?

Hard one! I think I’d pick losing hearing. I very much enjoy music, people’s voices, but I rely on my visual memory way too much to give up on it.


4) Your favourite animal? Why do you like them so much?

Eh, cats? I live alone now, I’d go insane in months if I hadn’t had a company of Lynx.


5) Are vampire pricks or what.

Vampire pricks? Like, fangs? I don’t follow?


6) Is there a trope you really love even though it’s silly and/or not healthy?

Hahahaha ow wow. I’m a sucker for stories “got a severe mental trauma, now making a slow way to recovery”. Or healthy relationships. Goddamnit when did I become such a pansy.

You know what really stresses me in this very cool flashmob? Coming up with new questions. I won’t do it this time.

Pricks is a more polite version of saying someone is an asshole. ^^

Sure! Was almost too much trouble for me to haha

unslaadtuz said: headcanon: Veronica and Christine actually did meet up again after Christine found her way back to the Mojave. They ditched the Brotherhood and settled down far away from its reach, doing the occasional armed escort for the FoA but otherwise keeping quiet.

Remember Me is the game that goes one step into the right direction, then a second one, and you are thinking “Hey, maybe this game gets it after all!”. But nope, as next Remember Me sprints into the opposite direction and the dance repeats itself.

The music is great. Reminds me why I love Olivier Deriviere so much. The white/orange overlay works fantastically with the environment and integrates the mechanics perfectly.

But the ableism… ugh, rant under cut.
