  1. Is Game of Thrones sexist?

    I have had this discussion in the past, and I would definitely say the show/books aren't sexist at all. If you look at them at face value, things are pretty gross, but Martin's smartest/strongest characters are the women! s
  2. SimCity: The City Simulator

    This extremely blows. Also, Toblix your profile is private. After some frustrating searching around, North America East 2 seems to be working properly.

  9. DayZ

    Great stream! I caught the last half of it. They met some random player who led them around, I don't want to spoil the ending, you can watch an archive of it.
  10. DayZ

    I made a tumblr a while back that shares some of my favorite tales from Day Z. If anyone has any great stories, I do take submissions!

  14. "Adults Should Read Adult Books" - Joel Stein

    Somebody in that NY times "debate" needed to be contrary to everyone else. I think that it is important for people to read good fiction, and I think it is a tragedy when I hear people my age (late twenties) talk about "twilight" or the "hunger games" and I just know that the last real adult book they read was assigned to them in high school. But, overall, when we are talking about books, we need to be realistic. Reading books is escapism, and a leisure activity. I am sure high powered hedge fund manager could write an article talking about "Nothing is more embarrassing than some guy reading a book on the train, when he could be trading stocks on the Asian Market" And how people shouldn't be wasting their lives doing something that isn't advancing their lives in a significant and fiduciary way. Sure it sucks, and it really irks me when people swoon over these novels, and I want to just pop in and say, Read "The Brothers Karamazov", or a Hemmingway novel. In the end, books are entertainment, something that can be very enlightening and provocative, but entertainment nonetheless. So, we can delude ourselves and feel better because we are more accomplished because we have read X number of novels from the top of our self-described elitist hierarchy of fiction, or we can just let people read what they want to read. Some people don't feel like reading difficult prose or complicated fiction, that is their bag man. Let them have their vampire love novels. That op-ed piece smelled heavily of "elitist jerk" (see the sneaky jab at video games and pixar films.) Not only does Mr. Stein do a poor job of stating his position and making an argument, but I think that he misses the point entirely.
  15. "Adults Should Read Adult Books" - Joel Stein

    I just think that the quality (twilight as an exception) of the young adult novel has increased greatly. The Harry Potter books are not only interesting in scope and fiction, but technically well written. That is what set the Potter books apart from other YA fiction. And really pushed the genre forward, heightening expectations. I think that the Hunger Games books (at least the first one) are decently well written, and on top of having some interpersonal drama, it is a rare example of Science Fiction being popular! Which is rare, very rare.
  16. Mass Effect 3

    I started playing the -effects on the Xbox, so I don't have to worry about these issues. Though, this weekend I installed ME2 and downloaded a renegade lady shepard save. Holy crap the game looks good on my PC. I kinda wish I had started on PC. At least with the 360, you don't have to worry about origin. (my ID is already tied to an EA account)
  17. Fund Tim Schafer's next game YOURSELF!

    I worked QA for a medical software company. And I made around 40k. And that job was hell on earth.
  18. Backlog Busters

    Kind of a really lite rogue-like though. More of a shooter? Action game?
  19. Prison Architect

    I installed yoot tower a while back. So much fun.
  20. New people: Read this, say hi.

    I am a new person. Apparently new people cannot make threads. I will have to post more.
  21. New Idle Thumbs Website

    Now I can only see it as "Sperm Trap" Also, I pronounce the term "ARG" in my head the way it would sound if a pirate said it. And I feel that is the most correct way to view that term.

    Winner! Get on it dudes. Make with the pods.
  23. The threat of Big Dog

    Well, I enjoyed life while it lasted.
  24. The threat of Big Dog

    Kidney Puncher 9000
  25. Saint's Row The Third

    I would definitely suggest playing the game as the lady with the Russian accent. I too played as the British dude, but the achievement to change gender made me try out the Russian chick voice. I totally made a wannabee G.I. Joe Baroness, and she kicked ass.
