do you think this is a game for us

anonymous asked:

what do you think of instead of being siblings, angelo was in the same unit as mercy, and she was a mentor to him?

That’s nice and all but like, there’s already mentor relationships in Overwatch and the game could use a healthy familial relationship that doesn’t end in tragedy for once. Ana? Forced to abandon her family. Winston? His dad got murdered on the moon. Hanzo? Killed his brother. Widowmaker? Talon made her shoot her husband. Orisa and Bastion? Last of their kind. Zenyatta? His relative was assassinated in London. Mei? All her friends are dead. Symmetra? Taken away from her family. Mercy? Orphaned.

Blizzard. Please. Stop hurting them.

anonymous asked:

Following everything with Shadow of War, Visceral and Activision's predatory patent there has been so much corporate apologism. I don't get it. Why do these people about the profit margins of suits? Do they really think that those soulless fuckasses give two shits about video games beyond the money it can make them? Tell me why Feel, why? If the way AAA games are made stops them from being good and ethical. Maybe we should stop making games that way.

I remember a 4chan post from a long time ago.

I wrote it off as general bullshit, but now I think it might be true;

The basic gist was “Hey, I work for the PR department of a major publisher. We pay some people to shill for us, but not as many as you think. We don’t have to. If you just nudge people they’ll do it for free. I still can’t explain it.”

Letting Go - 4 Striptease

for @tpthvegebulsmutfest

He stood in her lab, eyeing the equipment and half-put together machinery. He had seen similar rooms before on Frieza’s outer stations. He did not much care for them. The room smelt unpleasant, of strange chemicals, motor oil, and burnt wires among other things. Bulma had asked him to take a seat but Vegeta remained standing, waiting for her to return from wherever it was she had ducked off to. He didn’t know why he was humoring her.

A/N: I hope you guys like how this chapter turned out. I’m really excited about where it’s going to go from here and I would love to hear feedback from you guys! 

(Part two)

Madison was surprisingly good at timing things and we made it to Steve and Bucky’s apartment right at 6. Madison talked my ear off about her and Steve’s budding relationship the entire walk over, effectively distracting me from overthinking the entire situation that was about to take place.

“Ready?” she checked and I nodded before she knocked on the door. Everything turned to a blur and the next thing I know I’m sitting on the couch next to Madison with Steve and Bucky sitting across from us.

Do you think Cat!Virge plays with toys by himself like an absolute madman until one of the others come in and he just stops whatever he’s doing and darts out of the room? Cuz my cat does that and I’d I like to think he does too.

YES. So my cat Sammy taught himself fetch by throwing nerf darts into the air and chasing them. Then he taught it to US by bringing them to us and dropping them in our laps. He also plays with this pink felted bun that was part of a silly Princess Leia hat. That game is more about keep away, though: he’ll bring it to me, and when I try to take it, he growls and we play tug-of-war. For awhile I thought he was mad I was trying to take it, but one morning I woke up with the thing in my hand, and the sound of Sam growling next to me. So I think it is a game.

(If you're still doing anti-honesty hour, here's another one, but if not, I'd like to hear your real opinion.) What do you think of the fact Lauren Montgomery recently called Shiro Keith's guiding light?

LAUREN IS WRONG. SHE DOESN’T EVEN KNOW HER OWN CHARACTERS.

lol no. honesty hour is over so have my real feels about this: ASDFGHJKLKJHGFDS. I LOVE TO CRY ALL DAY. I WANNA THANK LAUREN MONTGOMERY FOR MY FUCKING LIFE. like lbr this isn’t a surprise to any of us. we knew this. but have her outright say it like that just ahhhhhhhhhhh. i mean ‘’he latches onto shiro’’, ‘’his pillar’’, ‘’his guiding light’’……etc etc. FUCKING BLESS. honestly if they don’ t give us an actual flashback soon im gonna cry. lauren you put that shit in there now pls pls give us more. if you’ll excuse me i’ll have to go die in a corner now. 

anonymous asked:

How do you get such amazing lighting for the spicy scenes??

I think it’s a mixture of things. I use the noblu mod by lumialoversims, the lighting mod from burnt waffles, a psd action that brightens my pictures, and the burn and dodge tool in photoshop.

But I also set the lighting for my scenes in game. So for example I only had one candle set at medium brightness lit in Hazel’s room and no other lighting. I think lighting in game is really important.

anonymous asked:

Ohhh to continue on with that "where in Touhou do you feel it could be a stopping point/ending for the series", I feel like LoLK really gave us everything for a finale. I feel like a lot of the series has built up the Lunarians as a big bad villain and you finally got a chance to confront a few forces on it in the game. If it maybe focused more entirely on Lunarians instead of Junko's revenge then I think that would be a good place for it to end

The Lunarians have definitely been built up as powerful antagonists, but I definitely wouldn’t say they’re the major villain of the series. If anything, their purpose is to be an absolutely unbeatable force that puts the problems of Gensokyo into perspective. Even in LoLK, you fail to so much as put a scratch on Sagume.

Don’t take this analogy too literally, but it’s somewhat like telling a story about a small kingdom neighbored by a larger empire. You can still tell an entirely self-contained story about just that kingdom, it’s succession problems and whatnot, without ever toppling the empire. In fact, it would make no sense for the kingdom to topple the empire. Even if they’re a constant threat through the story, the villain is always going to be the Evil Vizier who tried to assassinate the Princess, not the Empire. That doesn’t mean the empire is irrelevant or even unimportant to the story, they’re just not what it’s about.

Touhou is about Gensokyo, not the moon. It’s not even about Gensokyo being invaded by the moon. The moon is just one of many concerns to the people in Gensokyo. If there has to be a final story arc to the series as a whole, I would imagine it would come from WaHH, specifically the subplot about the sages and therefore the creation and future of Gensokyo. That’s much more relevant to the unifying themes of the series than the moon is.

The big bad villain is Kasen.

If I Ever Feel Better - Phoenix

Hang on to the good days
I can lean on my friends
They help me going through hard times
But I’m feeding the enemy
I’m in league with the foe
Blame me for what’s happening
I can’t try, I can’t try, I can’t try

———

Dark is the night, cold is the ground
In the circular solitude of my heart
As one who strives a hill to climb
I am sure I’ll come through I don’t know how
They say an end can be a start
Feels like I’ve been buried yet I’m still alive

Slow Down - CRX

When I see you speeding by
All I do is wave goodbye
I wish I could buy some time
Enough to get it right

Satin In A Coffin - Modest Mouse

Well you disappeared so often
Like you dissolved into coffee.
Are you here right now
Or are there probably fossils under your meat?

———

Are you dead or are you sleepin’?
Are you dead or are you sleepin’?
Are you dead or are you sleepin’?
God I sure hope you are dead.

Ocean Avenu - Yellowcard

There’s a piece of you that’s here with me
It’s everywhere I go, it’s everything I see
When I sleep I dream and it gets me by
I can make believe that you’re here tonight
That you’re here tonight

Nothing Left To Say - Imagine Dragons

Who knows how long I’ve been awake now?
The shadows on my wall don’t sleep
They keep calling me, beckoning
Who knows what’s right? The lines keep getting thinner
My age has never made me wise
But I keep pushing on and on and on and on

———

I keep falling, I keep falling down
If you could only save me
I’m drowning in the waters of my so

What she says: “I’m fine”

What she’s thinking: Honestly don’t bash cheritz for charging 300 hourglasses for V’s route (forcing you to pay for hourglasses) they try their best and do everything for their consumers like you don’t even know this type of unpaid play is legit unheard of in otome games and they offer totally plausible ways of getting hourglasses for the people who can’t pay and they gave us so many extra hourglasses with each update like I could totally get 300 without having to pay I’m just impatient and they also run ZERO ADS like they’re a miracle and a blessing, besides being one of the most revolutionary and intriguing ‘otome’ games in the history of 'dating sims’ they also are so personal with their audience and put so much work into everything they invented an entire new route just because everyone was begging for it and the voice actors put in LITERAL HOURS OF DIALOUGE and they make the entire app accessible for EVERYONE which no other otome game has ever done they ALWAYS make you pay but not mystic messenger like can you even believe it?? They put so much quality into their work but how are they even making money? The real cheap ones are us the consumers because we can’t believe we have to pay $.99 to unlock one route when most games would force you to pay upwards of $20 to experience the game. They have done so much I love them and they love us

I’ve been thinking about this PewDiePie situation and the right-wing response to it a bit, and I think it pretty well demonstrates the social rot at the heart of capitalist socialization.

Whenever somebody gets called out for using blatantly offensive and discriminatory language, the far right always thinks that the response is entirely performative. Everybody that is offended isn’t REALLY offended, we are just performing offense in order to play nice with “respectable” society. In other words, we are all just playing a game, and the end goal is getting ahead. Everything is a competition. Social justice is just another element in the game, and some people choose to take that route in their quest for power and social capital.

You can call this out as childish and selfish, because it is, but it also points to a much deeper problem in the way capitalism teaches us to think about morality. We are taught from a young age two conflicting narratives - that we should be kind and respectful to other people, but also that everything is a competition and you should do everything you can to be the absolute best. Those two ideas are incompatible with each other. You can’t simultaneously respect other people while viewing them as your competition in the game of life. So people normally end up predominantly recognizing one side or the other - we either decide to be especially kind and respectful to each other, or we decide to view everything as a competition.

For the people who choose the second option, morality becomes part of the game. Nothing anybody does is actually genuine - it’s all just a ruse to push other people out of the way. That’s why they can’t believe that there is anybody that actually doesn’t want to be offensive. That there are people who aren’t offensive when nobody is watching. The only reason you would ever be respectful in the first place is because other people are watching - because you’re trying to get ahead. It’s all a competition.

Some prominent parenting strategies exacerbate the problem. “You can’t do that because I say so.” If no reason is ever given, why are people doing anything? Because it’s a game. Just like school, just like work.

And the truth is, we all play that side from time to time. Everybody lies on their job application. Everybody acts way too happy to be at work. Everybody pretends to like their boss more than they do. Everybody plays nice to the horrible customers that you would otherwise strangle. Even people who choose to be genuinely kind are forced to play the game on occasion as well. And the people who chose the competitive view of the world recognize that.

So we can certainly mock and laugh at the people who can’t figure out that there are actually good people in the world who do good things out of genuine compassion. It is a laughable position. But it’s also baked into all of us from a young age in capitalist society. And that’s the real tragedy.

Pokémon CEO on The New Pokémon Game for Switch and the Future of the Franchise:

  • “With the Switch, we see it as a chance to create Pokémon that goes deeper and with a higher level of expression. As a result, that makes it an extremely important platform.”
  • “Right now we’re using 7 to 8 inch screens, but on a high-definition TV you can express a whole different world with graphics and sound.”
  • “Until now, games were made as one for one person, but now you can go home and play with everyone – so how do we tackle these themes, and how do we make sure it’s not complicated?”
  • “I can’t say that we’ll release accessories, but I’d like to think of that possibility.”
  • “Unlike smartphones, the Switch is not a game device that assumes that there’s constant network connectivity. So from our perspective, it’s really not that different from DS or 3DS in terms of connectivity.”

Ishihara also spoke at length about augmented reality, a technology that superimposes virtual characters and scenes onto real-world images. He said that this fits well with the Pokémon company’s vision of blending fantasy with reality, as Pokémon Go did as a location-based game.

  • “With current AR, even if you say Pikachu is there, no one really thinks that. But that reality is just one step away. For example, you’ll be able to find Pikachu, and it can sense this table and jump on it, and you can see its shadow on the table, and then it faces you and starts talking to you. We will see the birth of this reality that is another step up from the current Pokémon Go. And I’ve only mentioned the visual aspect, but you can add haptic and rumble technology to that.”
  • “Voice-activated assistants are increasing. Whether it is Google Home or Amazon or Apple Homepod, there are many of them and we could see these dialogue-based devices give birth of a new form of entertainment.”
  • “Switch is just one of the possible platforms. I think we will open up more possibilities from all these platforms. Playing in a more realistic way should be possible.”

meunicorn  asked:

if you could become a ghost and haunt ANY place, what place would you haunt?

R: Probably an arclight cinema. First, they have the best popcorn in the game. Their butter is fantastic (it’s real butter folks!). Second, if I’m going to spend an eternity trapped between two realms, I can’t think of a better way to spend it than by watching films 24/7. I’m a cinephile and kernelhead, it’s a dream come true. Also, by watching movies, I’d stay in tune with the culture and could offer contemporary references in my EVPs for investigators. Also, not a sponsored post for arclight, but damn, does that place do a picture show right!

S: Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, Illinois. Used to have a Mars 2112, which is a restaurant that looked like outer space. Maybe the ghost of the restaurant is there too, meaning Ghost Me could eat Ghost Alien French Fries.

When your schizophrenic friend talks about delusions or hallucinations

Don’t:

  • Tell us it’s real.
  • Add more information or details to our delusions.
  • Try to take control of or change our delusions.
  • Give us examples of what it could be besides a delusion or a hallucination as in “what if these shadow people you see are ACTUALLY ghosts.”
  • Tell us that we’re stupid or crazy or dumb or sick for believing what we see and think is real.
  • Tell us not to talk about it.
  • Confront us with the fact that it isn’t real and that we’re sick unless you’ve talked to us first about whether that helps and gotten our permission. You’re not our therapist and we might not need or want you to confront our illness, we might just want you to be supportive and listen.
  • Dismiss or invalidate our thoughts and experiences. They’re very real to us.

Do:

  • Ask us what we need from you - do your friend need and want you to confront them with the fact that they’re sick and it isn’t real or would you doing that make everything worse?
  • Listen and be empathetic. Example: “wow, that must be scary, I totally get that you’re upset - can I do anything to make you feel better?”
  • Tell us that what we see and hear can’t hurt us and that we’re safe even though we’re experiencing these upsetting things.
  • Try to distract us - ask if we want to do something active with you like playing a board game or going for a run or going to the mall to get our minds off things and connect us to reality.
  • Understand that what we think and experience is real to us.
  • Help us feel safe and let us be weird in the attempt to feel safe. Let us pour salt on the floor if it keeps the demons away, give us water from and unopened bottle if there’s something wrong with the water in the taps, taste our food to check if it’s poisonous and help us cover the cameras so they can’t watch us.
  • Let us talk about it. We have the same need to share and talk about our thoughts and experiences as everyone else and sometimes we just need someone to listen without judging or invalidating us.
