where my video games

2032. “lets playing” is a major in several reputable universities across the country. markiplier is the head of the lets playing department at Yale. a student walks into his office. “sir,” she says, “a boy in my intro to battletoads class was making antisemitic comments towards me.” 

“and you’re telling on him?” he questions in his way too charismatic voice. 

“um,” she says, “yes?” 

“well” he says. he positions a camera light onto his face and presses record on his very expensive camera. “i really just think you’re showing a lack of respect by trying to bring down this man who did nothing but–”

meanwhile, in an apartment in SoHo, the beat letsplayer movement is in full swing. cassandra, a cigarette dangling from her lips, sighs. “my mom still thinks i’m insane for leaving NYU”

“she’s insane,” says donovan, “the letsplayer major there is total corporate bullfuckery. they only care about the numbers, man, and defending each other’s near impossible to escape racist jokes (why is that so prevalent wtf), not doing new and interesting things with video games.”

“whatever,” she says, “once my series where i play fallout new vegas while suspended 30 feet in the air on a trapeze drops, then i’ll break it into the mainstream. then she’ll see.”

they make love, both secretly pretending the other is nick robinson

do you ever hear someone talk shit about a character you love and feel offended as if it was personally directed at you?

Everyone seems to think that the animal crossing games are generally nice and lighthearted. But my first and last experience with the series was when one of my villagers came up to me and said “this made me think of you so I had to buy it” and gave me a human skeleton.

Now with a counterpart featuring her sister, the we-have-no-idea-if-she’s-kidnapped-or-a-traitor-but-we-love-her-anyway Callie.

Mostly improvised since we have no idea what she looks like thanks to the wonderful world of silhouette reveals.

WHY DIDN’T YOU VOTE FOR HER GUYS?! WHY?!  TTnTT

Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where’s the streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and I turn
And I dream of what I need  (x)

FF WEEK: day two - favourite game(s)
       ↳ final fantasy tactics advance + final fantasy tactics a2: grimoire of the rift

Oxenfree Alex Speed Painting

Here’s Alex from Oxenfree by @nightschoolstudio . She’s the first in a new fan art series I’m working on where I’ll be drawing characters from my favorite video games. This game was well written, highly atmospheric, and I loved the characters. Vibe-wise, to me, it felt like a combo of Stranger Things and Coraline. ⛰📻🔦👻Have you guys played it?

Here’s some of my art that made it into the Hiveswap trailer! I just did the backgrounds, not any of the characters or animations or anything (though I did get to design Jude’s pigeons! Look how cutely they are animated!!) It feels so good to be able to finally show you some of this stuff.

PROTECT HIM

WAIT ARE YOU SHITTING ME UR SUPPOSED TO BREAK THE DOLLS!?!?? IVE ONLY BEEN KNOCKING THEM OVER IM SO MAD what happens when u break em? i’m so pissed.

Me: Listening to Let’s Plays is one of the major ways I soothe myself and get into a meditative state while working, but with so much gross stuff going on in the Youtube Let’s Player community, where can I possibly go for my fix of “nerds playing video games while making comedic commentary”?

Griffin McElroy, laying on a desk with a rose between his teeth: Well hello there.

Speaking of being a B-list Tumblr celeb... promo me imo, since I’m almost at 4000 followers

Hi! I’m tumblr user Maxie Satan. I’m a leftist trans lady and I do my best to be a positive presence in spite of being angry and bitter all the time. I make music and a podcast, Gabe Newell’s Rosy Rupeeland, where I talk about cheap video games with my friend Zach.

I don’t really know what else goes on these?? I’m otherkin I guess so if that’s a either a problem or a selling point like Either Way.

McHanzo Week - Day 3 Alternate Universe (Fantastic Beasts AU)
