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.

Remember, don’t use donotlink, it’s not effective at preventing clicks or ad revenue.
Use archive.this (or hell, even the Wayback machine), and when it’s necessary to actually visit the site, use adblock.

Commented on A conversation with Ars Technica

I guess that’s another one added to the blacklist.
There aren’t going to be any Internet tech/gaming sites left by the time this is all done.

It kinda depresses me that this will never be an actual game.
I really miss the first two Paper Mario games ;_;

I think it’s more a matter of ignorance on the major news sites’ side.
They simply don’t understand what’s actually going on because none of these people know how to research bullshit on the Internet.

Just look at the dumbasses at CNN, they thought 4chan was a fucking person. That’s how little research these people do, they don’t even try to fact check.

It means Disciple of Faust is gonna go fucking ballistic.

Commented on Godwin's Law enacted.

“does not welcome female members”
lol-fucking-what. The gender ratio for video gamers is actually around 55% men, 45% women.
PAX East this year was said to have a ratio of 65% men to 35% women.

How can these people possibly claim that gamers don’t welcome females when girls are already nearly half our number?

Commented on The Fappening / Celebgate

Also, Jennifer Lawrence is a huge deal because (as far as I know), she has never released nudes of herself before. Not in her movies, nor anywhere else. So this is never-before-seen content.

I’m gonna have a lot of fun at PAX this year. Things should be pretty hectic.
My Five Guys t-shirt hasn’t arrived in the mail yet, unfortunately, but guess who my friend is dressing up as?

I hope to see some of you folks there! If you encounter this fellow, come talk to us!

There are over seven billion people on this earth, and not a single one of them is more badass than this.

I’m wearing a Five Guys t-shirt to PAX this weekend.
It’s the best I could do on such short notice.

This, more than a lot of their bullshit, is a serious fucking problem.
I’m going to PAX, and while I was hoping to spend at least a little of my time helping out the protests, now I’m going to walk in fear of over-zealous, misinformed Enforcers kicking us out of the exhibition because they think we’re there to hand out porn.

Thankfully, SJWs aren’t the only ones with connections.
I’ll see what I can do about making sure the Enforcers are properly informed on the nature of the protests.

Commented on Game Illuminati

Hmmm, now I want somebody to hack into it and divulge whatever juicy, controversial discussions have probably taken place in there.

Or, find somebody supportive of our cause who has an account to… leave the door open for us.

Commented on What gamers want

I want good games, and more of them.
Why do game journalists have to make it so complicated?
