Not exactly a book, but I'm reading the Lovecraft collection. Having only had a very basic idea of what his writing was about, it's eye-opening to see how much contemporary media/horror is based off his masterful pieces.

I enjoyed the article, the part pertaining to Machinima was especially vulgar. However I find it slightly disconcerting that the writer initially introduced the topic by stating "I want to communicate, not garner some hits on a graph" then closes the comment section. Upon reading the suffix, I can understand that he doesn't wish to have the comment section ladened with abusive vitirol. However I feel as if he's trying to create a Velvet Revolution wherein the sexist masses suddenly realise the error of their ways.
I feel that for any change to occur in the industry, there needs to be harsh criticism on both sides - even if that includes comment sections that resemble an emotional quagmire. Hopefully throughout the controversy, a maturing consensus will actually occur and potentially some form of change enacted. I'm not trying to be an anarchist, but by all means, create more discussion on this issue.
I live in a suburb located just outside of Melbourne, Australia. It has an almost unpronounceable name, gifted to it by Indigenous Australians and is also the home of the worlds most bizarrely complex and dangerous intersection in this history of roads.
Look at it. It's an abomination
I really enjoyed this weeks Wednesday Live Show. Eric Tay seems like a total bro and Waters isn't half bad either. I'm optimistic this may grow into something good and the cross-pollination between GS/GB will not only bring in more diverse content, but additional viewers for Giant Bomb.
I don't know about you guys, but I love North Korea propaganda. After last weeks attempt at instilling fear into the hearts of capitalistic pig dogs using high-tech CGI and Activision, Kim Jong-Un decided to up the ante with an awe-inspiring message of fear to the west.
Never change North Korea.
Edit: Zenimax got to the video first, sorry guys. Here's a link to a working vidya -
In Australia (Victoria at least), my secondary college never had anything akin to segregation. Top performers to the worst students were contained withinin a singular class. Then, given the vicious nature of the cohort system and grading syllabus, were made to compete against each other in a brutal education deathmatch.
