for frogman

These photos were taken by Sam Jacobs while he and his girlfriend were out playing the game Pokemon Go in August of 2016. The two were walking between Loveland Madeira Road and Lake Isabella in Loveland, Ohio, when they spotted the creature. Jacobs claims that this creature is what is known as the Loveland Frogman. He is very adamant about what he saw though many claim it to be a hoax. He estimates the animal stood at least four feet tall.

Jacobs wrote in an email about his sighting, “I realize this sounds crazy, but I swear on my grandmother’s grave this is the truth”.

I feel pretty confident in saying that if Vetra is romanceable at all, she’s gonna be a romance option for fem Ryder.

And the reason I feel comfortable saying this is because of Bioware’s track record with romances, especially in Mass effect. Let’s quickly compare all of male Shepard’s love interests with Fem Shep’s.

Everyone Femshep can do the do with (excluding minor characters like Kelly chambers and Diana Allers):

(The bottom three you can have flings with in the citadel DLC)

And all of Male Shep’s love interests (with the same exclusions):

And I feel it should be noted that Tali’s Canon appearance under her mask is this:

So.

What’s the most obvious difference between the two lineups?

(besides gender ratios of course)

The difference is that fem Shep has three bizzarre looking aliens in her romantic gallery whereas male Shep’s options are all very very human looking.  

With fem shep you can romantically pursue Garruss (s seven foot tall chicken dinosaur), Thane Krios (an, albeit sexy, frogman), and Javik (a four eyed… lizard man?).

The most alien you can get with male Shep’s options is Tali with her full body suit, but even then at the last second they revealed that underneath all that she really just looks like a slightly photoshopped human with luscious locks (which is what she is. Seriously. It’s a ‘shopped stock photo. I’m so mad). 

The reason for this difference (I think) is that there’s this belief, at least among most big-name media creators, that women care less about the physical appearance of their romantic interests then men do.
 How true this statement is is up to personal opinion I suppose, but it’s reflected in the options given to us by the game designers. They’re not going to put time and money into coding a full romance route they don’t think players are going to pursue, and they don’t think many male players are going to pursue a romance with anyone that doesn’t look at least mostly like a sexy human. 

Now let’s take a look at our lady Vetra:

She looks kickass, she looks awesome, she looks like the love of all our lives, but she very much does not look human. She’s seven feet tall, has a spiky bone plated face, and where are her bobbies??????

So here’s how Bioware is thinking about it: if we give players the chance to romance her, what demographic of players is more likely to pursue that romance? Women, obvi. 

Do I think that’s fair? No. Do I think male Ryder should be given weird alien love interests to smooch? Yes. And I really hope they do this game. 

But if they make Vetra a romance option, which i think they’re likely to do based on what they’ve been teasing, then I am certain that she is going to be an option for fem Ryder at the very least, if not both. 

Does anyone ever think about the fact that in “I slept with someone in Fall Out Boy and all I got was this stupid song written about me” Patrick sings, ‘I found the cure to growing older,’ and he looks like he either hasn’t aged a day or literally got younger???

Idk I think about this a lot…

Ballad of the Frogman

“Been around the world twice, talked to everybody once. 
Seen two whales fuck, Been to 3 world fairs, 
and I even know a man in Thailand with a wooden Cock. 
I push more peter, more sweeter, and more completer, than any other peter pusher around.. 
I’m a hard bodied hairy chested, Ruttin’ Tuttin’ Shootin’.Parachutin’ demolition double cap krimpin’ Frogman. 
There aint nothing I can’t do, No sky too high, No sea too rough, No muff too tough. 
Learned a lot of lessons in my life. 
Never shoot a large caliber man with a small caliber bullet. 
I drive all kinds of trucks, 2x, 4x, 6x, and those big motherfuckers that bend and go "CHHH CHHH” when you step on the brakes. 
Anything in life worth doing is worth overdoing, moderation is for cowards. 
I’m a lover, I’m a fighter, I’m a UDT Navy SEAL diver. 
I’ll wine dine, intertwine. Then sneak out the back when the re-fueling is done. 
So if you’re feeling froggy then you better jump. because this Frogman has been there, done that, and is going back for more.“
