    It's just high school clique-ism. It's just the wealthy and attractive kids throwing abuse at the losers at the Loser Table, especially when the grounds are "women aren't attracted to you, ha ha ha".

    I genuinely can't figure out the sexual politics of that kind of progressive game writer. Even if the "anime avatar" thing wasn't a ridiculous straw man, isn't the premise inherently anti-diversity?

    I've had good experiences with Hover. It's not the cheapest, but I think the extra cost is justified by the pleasant interface, good support, and general lack of grossness.

    Kill la Kill or: how I learned to stop worrying and love anime

    With the exception of Nintendo games, I didn't grow up with overtly Japanese media. I was certainly aware of it — and growing up one of the most Chinese cities in North America helped in that regard —...

    I haven't played it, but I think of it as one of the more revered GBC games. I didn't know it was on Club Nintendo -- I might drop some coins on it and give it a shot as well.
