About

Wow, it’s been a really long time since I updated my wall.

Overall I’d say I’m a pretty average netizen. I watch the occasional anime when I have time, my traditional favorites being Trigun, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Starblazers (Uchuu Senkan Yamato). Also, as you can tell by my avatar, I’m a fan of MLP (though I try my best to not be obnoxious about it), and western cartoons/animation in general.

As far as gaming goes, I see myself gravitate primarily towards the indie and retro circles, though of course I love the occasional triple AAA release. I like strategy games such as Dwarf Fortress and the Civilization series, most games that Valve makes, and really anything that looks fun. These days I mostly do my gaming through Steam, and if you want to friend me here’s my profile:

I’ve always been really interested in internet culture, I think it’s really fascinating to observe how things spread and mutate over time. That’s why I’ve loved KYM so much.

Within the MLP fandom, I enjoy all the fantastic fan content our artists create. I don’t watch as many videos or listen to as much music as I used to, but I still dabble in those. Primarily these days I’m into the art and fanfiction.

Speaking of fanfiction, my only real claim to fame in this fandom would be my story, I Wasn’t Prepared For This. It received a far better reaction than I ever could have hoped for. Still, things IRL have held me back from continuing it for a long time, though I hope to bring it out of hiatus very soon.

Commented on Meme Run

I don’t know what’s more disgusting, that Meme Run exists or that somebody actually has the trollface copywritten.

Commented on Undisclosed financial ties of Ben Kuchera with a game he supported.

Agreed. It’d only be something significant if he was actually profiting in some way, or was even friends with, the devs.

Though perhaps I’m being biased because I really liked Sportsfriends (and have met the devs at PAX before). I’d hate for the team to get flak because of something outside their control.

“I guess that’s social justice nowadays, but we used to have another word for it: discrimination.”

Zing!
Great video, worth a watch and a fav.

Commented on Now they've started to make things up

TWO PEOPLE DIED SERIOUSLY GUYS
“Oh really? Who? What happened?”
"I"M NOT TELLING OUT OF RESPECT FOR FAMILIES!"
“Why’d you tweet about it then?”
“S-SHUT UP, GOOBERGRAPE.”

Monty Oum did more as a self-taught indie animator than Wu ever managed with 200,000 dollars of her parents money to create an animation studio.

Why must the good die young?

Damn that’s actually a pretty nice slogan.
I’d vote for that.

Commented on THE HORROR!

But GG has made some games already.
I remember back around Christmas time, some anon showed us a Vivian platformer written in flash he’d been working on. Simple, but fun.

There’s also of course the TFYC game.

Not to mention, what do these people expect? GG’s only been around for six months, and everyone in it is busy doing GG stuff. It takes a long time and a lot of effort to make a game, and that’d just be a waste compared to what we can be doing instead.
