"This doesn’t mean that we’re walking away from our fans who only play on Playstation or on PC."

Bullshit. That is EXACTLY what it means. It means taking Microsoft’s money, and using it to screw Playstation gamers, just as other studios have taken Sony’s money and used it to screw Xbox gamers. And Microsoft and Sony are both using their money to screw PC gamers. (Exactly how stupid it is that Microsoft pays for games to NOT be published for Microsoft Windows is left as an exercise to the reader.)

So how many development resources can thirty pieces of silver buy?

Marvel seems to be in no hurry to make a solo movie for any women, content with Robert Downey Jr. and blonde guys named Chris. With Zack Snyder running the DC movie universe now, we hope for Wonder Woman, but expect Sucker Punch 2. Video game developers are actively discouraged from female and/or “ethnic” leads, leading to row after row of Grizzled White Males with Downcast Eyes on the shelves of your local GameStop.

Meanwhile, Missing Worlds Media just posted this picture of Anthem, one of the signature heroes of the City of Titans universe and their equivalent to Captain America, Wonder Woman, and Statesman.

Being a “virtual studio” that collaborates over the internet without a publisher looming over their shoulders gives them the freedom to dare put a black female superhero with a badass, practical, sexy-without-being-cheesecake costume out there as the face of their game.

Building an MMO in a hundred garages around the world is a batshit crazy idea, and one I pledged Kickstarter funds to help support. Never mind the money, though. Seeing this makes me want to see them pull off the impossible even more.

Can we talk about how Orwellian this is?

Seniors with respiratory problems will obviously benefit from cleaner air. Not even the United Mine Workers of America would dispute that. But couch it in terms of EPA regulations, and suddenly the UMWA opposes it?

Not really. What they really oppose is the potential loss of pension funds for retired UMWA members, because the big energy companies would rather strip union pensions to the bone than lose one thin dime of profit. You know it, I know it, and the union bosses know it.

Instead of fighting back against management, though, they’ve decided to try and be the first people in human history to make something right by compounding the wrongness. Instead of protecting their narrow interest in their own pensioners, they’re actively fighting against the common good, harming all seniors’ health to protect the finances of a privileged few.

And thus we have a future nth-generation coal miner, riding on the shoulders of his (n-1)th-generation miner father (we presume), holding a sign in plain doublespeak stating that clean air is bad for the elderly.

"Ski house at Prickly Mountain in Vermont, a village created by a group of young avant-garde architects… The design was a collaboration between architects David Sellars and Tom Lucky and grew out of experiments for a thesis project for the Yale School of Architecture. The warmth of the furry carpeting everywhere gives inhabitants a feeling of shelter and security while looking at the snowy landscape through many glass-walled areas."

Skurka, Norma, and Oberto Gili. Underground Interiors: Decorating For Alternate Lifestyles. New York: Quadrangle Books, 1972.

This is my absolute nightmare. I hate/am grossed out by carpet. Especially carpet that has been lived-on by other people.

Minus the carpet, this is what Kramer’s apartment was going to look like.

LEVELS, Jerry.

The single color messes with your perception. It’s like somebody carpeted an MC Escher illustration.

21 Shockingly Lazy Special Effects in Big-Budget Movies

Is that lazy, or sensible? I vote sensible.

The question isn’t “How will players handle Michael Sam in their locker room?”

The question is “How will Michael Sam’s teammates handle homophobes in their locker room?”

I guess I have to amend this: How will Michael Sam’s teammates handle homophobic players and coaches in the locker room?
