Q:I have a full-time job and am in long-term relationship. Should I start playing DOTA2?
Oh…oh my. I mostly found the books trite and derivative and slept through the first two movies but oh. If you were trying to create a perfect image to send me you would basically get that. Like maybe replace the gun with a bow but I’ll allow it
My oh my.

Q:I assure you the Pacific Northwest is incredibly racist.
Oh, we know dogg, we know.
i find it funny that “i like big butts” has always been a well-liked song, but as soon as Nicki Minaj samples it and shows off her amazing ass in a video, suddenly OH MY GOD WHAT A SLUT PUT THAT AWAY
like, it’s okay for a guy to talk about how much he loves butts
but it’s not okay for women to love their own butts
funny how that works
Re: AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed
Twitter just isn’t long enough for me to say what I can say, so I thought I’d say it here. Please read it to the end if you have concerns or just want to know what’s going on.
tl;dr: in a game widely reviewed as possibly interesting but terribly, painfully localized, quality was job 3 but they sure felt the need to keep anti-trans slurs in throughout the game. the post includes the brilliant line, “It sounds lame, but I do know a lot of trans* individuals and they’re all great people.” so not only do we just throw some ableist shit in there but also pull the “some of my best friends are~~~”
cool cool times guys thanks
(I didn’t play it, but I did watch the Giant Bomb Quick Look, and they had the same conclusion—there’s something neat in there, but reading the dialogue is painful. And not in a “non-native English writer” way, but in a “we felt the need to be cheesy and trite as possible” way.)
