FIGHT LIKE A PRINCESS!So this was inspired by the tough princess’s in popular culture, it was originally suppose to be an entry into a welovefine contest.. but they accepted it and then a month later told me they couldn’t accept it anymore…  I get why they couldn’t put it up for rating with all the copyrighted characters, which i totally spaced out on when drawing. Yeah!

What if the fade being ripped open in da:i has nothing to do with templars and mages but everything to do with those weird side quests in da:o like activating the places of power and watch guard of the reaching and summoning sciences

I mean the warden did a bunch of weird shit in da:o without fully understanding what any of it does

I know! That always pissed me off

Message: “Go here and smear blood in a pentagon why? No reason”

Warden: “good enough for me!”

inquisitor: and how much did you do this for?
warden: one whole sovereign
inquisitor: *quietly fuming*
warden: there was also that one time i dug up the scrolls of banaster for some blood mages i never met
inquisitor: you did what
warden: that was for a whole five sovereigns

asexual vulcans though

asexual vulcans not going through pon farr

asexual vulcans being revered/super respected by other vulcans because they’ve somehow been born with the ability to transcend sexual attraction and activity

asexual vulcans sharing their inner nonsexuality with allosexual vulcans going through kohlinar

asexual vulcans being celebrated, in calm, logical, vulcan fashion

THE SIMS 4 LET’S PLAY SUMMARYLIVESTREAM #3 - LIVE MODE
Live mode Let’s Play hosted by Shannon Copur and Matt Yang. 
In a nut shell, The Sims 4 fails to deliver on all of its promises.  The Sims don’t act appropriately, they’re not smarter, the routing isn’t better and the Sims interactions with each other are flawed. 
There are some positives but they are few and far between all the shoddy gameplay.
REPLAY AVAILABLE HERE
If you’re short on time go ahead and skip forward to 43 minutes in to The Goth family and just watch the last 20 minutes of the broadcast play out.
NOTABLE
The clear plumbobs indicate the Sims are all in the social group.
Sims can sit on the ottoman from all sides.
Museum Venue:  There is absolutely nothing unique or interesting to do or see.
Sims doing push ups in the middle of the bar. Grant told us Sims would act appropriately in venues but that’s obviously not the case.  
Sims change clothes where they’re standing — it’s instant with no attempt at simulation.
Plan A Social Event has goals and medals to be earned. 
No new or unique gameplay to be found.  If it wasn’t for the Main Goal menu with a list of quest objectives reminiscent of an MMO you wouldn’t even know it was a party.
Some of the goals were having Sims listen to music and have drinks together at the same time.  Which are ridiculous goals but, unfortunately, make sense given that the Sims are everywhere reading, playing chess and on the computer — if you want your event to look anything like a party you’ll be working for it.
Even with a Call to Meal option — which was the main goal of the dinner party — Sims did not eat together.  Some ate at the bar, some at the table and some didn’t eat at all.
SHODDYThe game. The Sims 4 fails to deliver on it’s promises and that becomes apparent once the gurus settled into the Goth house for a small amount of time. 
Insane clipping like we’ve come to expect — there’s no point in pointing it out anymore.
Sims are constantly moving and repositioning themselves.  There are so many examples of this I don’t even know where to start.  Whether it’s reading, eating, or having a conversation they do not stay put.
The book jumps out of Mortimer’s hand and just disappears.  And he instantly spins into a new position. [44:00]
Interactions randomly drop out of the queue or Sims just don’t do them.  Watch the romantic interactions snuggle, kiss hands, offer rose etc. [45:00]
The toilet fiasco running through out that ends with Mortimor peeing on the couch because he kept refusing to use a toilet.  They even bought a brand new toilet (remember, there’s no NPC to call) trying to resolve the issue.
Bella finds out she’s pregnant and just stands there lifelessly — no emotions to be found unless you consider moodlets to be emotions.
Sims walk away in the middle of conversations and the Sim carries on talking to themselves.
Sexy Pose.  She poses behind him while he’s on the couch and he reacts.  Sims seem to have no positional awareness at all.  [58:40]
Eating.  Two Sims sit down to eat and one of them gets up from the table in the middle of eating and moves to a random chair (not at the table) to finish eating.  [1:01]
Mortimer continues to refuse to do interactions — like taking a bath — after he peed himself because he, again, wouldn’t use the toilet. Any toilet. [1:03]
And the gurus run down the hour going into build mode since the game was glitching so badly.   This is why there’s no review copies of the game being made available — the game looks to be a mess and not fit for purpose.

Just your daily reminders:

  • Racists are a problem
  • White people are not
  • Homophobes are a problem
  • Straight people are not
  • Transphobes are a problem
  • Cis people are not
  • Sexists are a problem
  • Men are not

And most importantly,

  • Hating an innocent person solely because of their race, sexuality, or gender makes you a fucking asshole

Just some actual daily reminders:

  • All white people do racist things without being aware they are
  • All straight people do homophobic things without being aware that they are.
  • All Cis people do transphobic things without being aware that they are.
  • All men do sexist things without being aware that they are.
  • Saying things like ‘some men’, ‘some cis people’ absolves the blame of individuals and only seeks to comfort those with privilege and power.
  • When a post says ‘some X’, the X will always assume that they are not because THEY ARE NOT AWARE.

And most importantly,

  • It’s called metonymy, when anyone who is oppressed makes an exasperated statement like ‘i hate straight people’, they are substituting straight people for the concept of a system and a culture that teaches, incentives, and legitimizes homophobic acts and normalizes homophobic acts so that straight people constantly do honophobic things without realizing it and that’s really fucking annoying.

And just as important,

  • The concept of sjws dehumanizes marginalized people and categorizes them as an ‘angry and emotional’ stereotype and only adds to the oppression of marginalized people under the guise of being ‘fair’, while the only thing you are doing is cushioning privileged people from their own ignorance and privilege.

plaidandredlipstick:

the reason male comic book fans work themselves into a frenzied rage over “fake geek girls" is because they think they can’t get a girlfriend because of their love for comic books (a.k.a nerdiness). if they accept that geek girls genuinely love comic books, then they’re left with the cold harsh reality that it’s not their nerdiness that makes them unattractive to women, but the fact that they are misogynistic condescending dickbags who need to be avoided AT ALL COSTS
