    I don't think you actually can make quite the same joke about Far Cry 4, mostly because the protagonist isn't white.

    RIP Monty Oum 1981-2015

    Definitely not any kind of victory, though looking back on my post, I see how it came off that way. I came off a little..."gloat-y", and I want to apologize for that. And yeah, it is strange. I honestly have no idea what the logic is in keeping the specifics private until now, but I can't...

    RIP Monty Oum 1981-2015

    Well, I hope you're hungry for sock then, because they just updated their site with more information. Because he passed away yesterday. From their most recent update: "Ten days ago Monty suffered a severe allergic reaction during a simple medical procedure that left him in a coma. Although...

    RIP Monty Oum 1981-2015

    Saying stuff like this only contributes to the spreading of completely baseless rumors. We have no idea what happened to him, and just because the family wants privacy, that is NOT a reason to assume shitty things about Monty with no real evidence. And I'm going to keep repeating the same...

    RIP Monty Oum 1981-2015

    I have to disagree. They never promised anything in return for the donations. They gave a general description of the situation, which is understandably being kept mostly private: The money is going to Monty and his family, and that's all you get to know. If you're uncomfortable with giving them...

    RIP Monty Oum 1981-2015

    Yeah, someone's been hospitalized and apparently might die at a very young age. Something is definitely "not right" about that. No, stop right there. You don't. You really don't. That is not the kind of relationship that an artist has with a fan. If his family wants the specifics of the...

    Escape to the Movies: Everly - Salma Hayek Kicks All Of The Ass

    I look forward to getting extremely drunk and watching this on Netflix someday. Also...I'm for more variety in our protagonists as much as the next guy(Seriously, it's absurd how many blonde white dudes named Chris are starring in our blockbusters these days), but...didn't "person of color"...

    The Big Picture: Dinosaur Exodus

    Exactly what I came here to point out. If the dinosaurs look like they've been redesigned to be more marketable to large audiences at the expense of accuracy, it's because they HAVE BEEN. They're SUPPOSED to look like that. It's actually a really smart way of getting Bob's "traditional"...

    Are the controls meant to be awful in The Last of Us?

    For one thing, even if you get discovered, you usually don't have to fight enemies to get past them. I spent quite a lot of time in game just desperately running from enemies. Anyway, my only problem with the controls was reloading with a shoulder button. I never had a problem shooting.

    I need some comics.

    First off, nice avatar. Secondly, read "Y: The Last Man". No, seriously. Do it now. You can read it in literally one day if you really try. It's only ten paperbacks long, and it's fucking fantastic. Do it. DO IT. Don't even bother reading the rest of this post, GO READ "Y: THE LAST MAN"...

    Legend of Korra, Season 4 Episode 1 Discussion

    I think this might help explain what's going on inside her head. Basically, I think she's retiring from being the Avatar...Or trying to. After seeing this image, I figured Korra's arc in this season would involve her deciding that the world didn't need the Avatar, but I'm surprised it's...

    Good Intentions & The Road To Hell: Fables "Camelot" Review

    You know, I was just thinking... The entire conflict they've set up is about Snow and Red arguing over whether or not a deplorable bastard, who may be a serious danger to those around him, is worth giving a second chance, right? Well...Wouldn't it better if they were arguing over Gepetto...

    Alan Moore's New Novel Might Be Too Massive To Lift

    Look, I love me some Watchmen and V for Vendetta, but...Man, that sounds really pretentious. That thing about blatantly ignoring editors raises a pretty hefty red flag. Even people who make really good stuff go crazy when they get total creative freedom. Peter Jackson, Stephen King, Steven...

    Mojang Joins Microsoft; Founders Notch, Carl, Jakob Leaving

    Was Snow Crash not grim and unfriendly enough already? Anyway, I'm just glad they're still making it for other platforms, me and my brother play it on PS3. And I'm not TOO worried about Microsoft. They've published plenty of good, varied games. They're hardly EA or Activision.
