Girls Is Flappy Bird: Why Do We Love Pain?
The other night, while watching a few episodes of Girls, I started to become so uncomfortable and frustrated that I picked up my iPhone, the modern adult version of hiding behind the couch. Through the soup of the internet, I had heard a lot of buzz about an iPhone game called Flappy Bird, and as usual, downloaded it and immediately forgot about it. “This should provide the right amount of distraction,” I thought.
Oh how wrong I was.

Nintendo Pull Yourself Together

I’m a giant Nintendo fan here, I’ve owned basically every console they’ve released in America throughout my life (yes, even Virtual Boy) and own a Wii U and 3DS now. So this comes from the heart, unless they make huge sweeping  changes, they won’t survive through 2015.

Nintendo’s “fixes” for their $15 million loss do nothing but show just how stubborn they are. They are basically saying, we’ll get out of this hole by doubling down on exactly what we’ve been doing. Forget all the cool, but pie in the sky ideas like netflix-like subscription services or mobile games, how about easy basic changes like……

Woooo OOooo!

Disney is releasing a modern remastered version of Duck Tales for NES! This game still stands as one of the best games I’ve ever played with one damn catchy soundtrack (I still listen to the Moon level theme to this day).

Well I told myself no Diablo 3 until I finished this month’s episode of Laughing Historically. Episode live. Bribing oneself totally works. (Taken with instagram)

One of my favorite things that somehow exists, but really shouldn’t is this version of Matt & Kim’s “Daylight” from The Sims 3, sung by the band in Simlish (language that The Sims speak that is supposed to sound how English sounds to non-english speakers). I love how somehow through absolute gibberish, the feeling still shines through.

In a radio broadcast, Perkins said:

"In a new Star Wars game, the biggest threat to the empire may be homosexual activists! Hello, I’m Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. In a galaxy not so far far away, Star Wars gamers have already gone to the dark side. The new video game, Star Wars: The Old Republic, has added a special feature: gay relationships. Bioware, the company that developed the game, said it’s launching a same-sex romance component to satisfy some complaints. That surprised a lot of gamers, since Bioware had made it clear in 2009 that “gay” and “lesbian” don’t exist in the Star Wars universe. Since the announcement, homosexuals have been celebrating the news, but parents sure aren’t. On the game’s website, there are more than 300 pages of comments–a lot of them expressing anger that their kids will be exposed to this Star Warped way of thinking. You can join them by logging on and speaking up. It’s time to show companies who the Force is really with!"

from Star Wars: The Old Republic Gay Controversy: Family Group Unloads on SW:TOR

Wrong on every. single. level. So now people are so into themselves that they even want to tell other people how to live in their virtual lives? “Homosexuals are celebrating the news”? All scifi is packed with this kind of stuff. Its not just a homosexual thing, it’s a game made for nerds. Have these asses even been on the internet?

Let’s keep the hate out of what is most likely one of the greatest games ever. Bioware made it very clear from the start that same sex relationships were always going in the game (just like all their other games ever), they just needed time to get it right.

In protest, my female Jedi Knight is going to flirt with all the ladies in the galaxy she can.

Finally, if gays didn’t exist in Star Wars, how do you explain these guys?!

HOW?
