Apparently I’m reviewing a keyboard for the next month. My job is really weird sometimes.

I was telling my mom about twitch plays pokemon and she said “So it’s like a giant Ouija board except for pokemon?” and i was like.. yes actually that’s exactly right

what you fail to realize is that video games shouldn’t cater to females in the first place. It’s largely known that it’s targeted towards the MALE demographic and has been for so many years, so why would they ask for something like that to be handed to them on a goddamn silver platter?
that’s like a guy walking into the women’s department of clothing at a sears and demanding that there be more clothing for men there. Separation of sections be damned.
that’s not how it fucking works


no not really
the game industry is more like walking into a regular department store and seeing that all the clothes are only men’s clothes
and when you ask the cashier where the women’s clothing section is, they wheel out a small rack of cheaply made tutus, g-strings, and high heels all in bright pink
and then when you go “wow really that’s it” you get called an uppity bitch and everybody assumes you want all the focus on you when in reality you’d just like to be considered a worthwhile demographic since you also like to wear clothes, it’s not like you want some ridiculous getup, you just want a solid shirt and pair of pants that fits you alright.
I mean hell you even sort of like men’s clothes and you have no problem wearing them. They suit you well. But it’s very obvious once you throw on a pair of men’s pants that they were not made for you.

Another look at the Zelda mini treasure box ⊟

Hold. The Frickin’. Boat. You’re telling me that this GAME-exclusive box that plays the treasure chime when you open it — initially reported as a preorder bonus but now part of a collector’s edition for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds in Europe — also has slots that can hold your DS and 3DS games? I am going to straight-up break every clay pot in this joint if Nintendo doesn’t bring this to the States.

PREORDER The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, upcoming games

Pretty sure I need this. Too bad I don’t live in the United Kingdom. You guys always get the best rewards. :(

I’ve been playing Rune Factory 4 on and off for a week now and I’m surprised at how much more enjoyable it is than both Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing for me.
With Animal Crossing, I get bored of the limited amount of activities you can do per day and interacting with the villagers doesn’t really fulfill anything interesting. I don’t have a desire to keep specific animals from moving away, so I typically stop playing about a month in. The festivals and fishing are what kept me playing the longest.
With Harvest Moon, there’s no combat so once again I get bored of just raising a farm and interacting with people. I feel like Rune Factory has struck a good balance here. Once I set up my farming chores, I can go fishing, or do a dungeon, or even work on my own shop Recettear style. 
I’m willing to forgive the overly anime-style of the game despite not usually liking it since the gameplay is so fulfilling. Really digging it. High-res

Since launching the podcast in 2010, we’ve always wanted to do videos of games. Well, 3 years later we’re finally ready. We realize the quality on this release isn’t the best, but that’s because we were idiots and recorded already compressed video. It’ll be improved by part 3.

It should be mentioned that Sarah is gigantic chicken and conned me into playing this, so blame her if I scream and break your ears.
