In defense of "the hate" Part 2: Hyperbole

Recently, there has been a lot of talk about "the hate" in the video game community. Gamers are portrayed as being hateful, mean, sadistic bullies who wish death on those who don't share their opinions. Those who make th...

Latest Tropes Vs. Cow Dumping is very reasonable

Cow dumps are not very comfortable to look at. Really, smelling them isn't either. I've always preferred to taste them. Just kidding. That's my idea of opening with humorous banter. Anyway, the newest(mooest?) cow taking a...

Words I Typed About Tomb Raider

I've never been a big Tomb Raider fan. In fact, I don't think that I've played Tomb Raider since the PS1 games, and, even then, it was never for more than a few minutes. So it should come as no surprise that I haven't really ...

SOPAking retarded
