Author's sum-up on "eight things developers can do to make games less shitty for women".
1) Avoid the Smurfette principle (don't have just one female character in an ensemble cast, let alone one whose personality is more or less "girl" or "woman")
2) "Lingerie is not armor" (Dress female characters as something other than sex objects)
3) Have female characters of various body types
4) Don't over-emphasize female characters' rear ends, not any more than you would the average male character's
5) Include more female characters of color
6) Animate female characters to move the way normal women, soldiers or athletes would move
7) Record female character voiceover so that pain sounds painful, not orgasmic
8) Include female enemies, but don't sexualize those enemies
Minutes after I walked through a metal detector--and some time before she was flocked by well-wishers at the best-attended gaming lecture I've ever been to at New York University--I recently listened to the media critic Anita Sarkeesian describe eight things she'd like to see changed in video games.

I always thought sonic was too sexualized myself! Not all hedge hogs have spike hair like that!

"These are all very manly men, I guess, so they're not going to come up and gush like little girls..."

Seriously?  Sure, this came out in early January, but the #likeagirl  campaign came out months ago.  Not to mention how tired I am of girls being the definition all things weak and sappy.
Thursday's release of the "Pitch Perfect 2" movie trailer caused plenty of buzz in the Green Bay Packers' locker room.

+Woot's current deal.  So saith their e-mail:  "What captures hearts? Diamonds! Unless you're playing Spades."

As I reside in a region with no snow, I am able to prep the ground for gardening IN JANUARY.  A nice spade would be lovely.

Skip to 1:47 for the segment I'm highlighting.  Before anyone judges the simpleton too harshly, remember that someone was negligent enough to let him hold office, in the first place.  Some number of ones, actually.  That is to say, if you aren't aware of who's running your government, congratulate yourself on this sort of bill being passed.

$27,636 pledged of $30,000 goal; 57 hours to go!

Suspension of Disbelief explores life in a town on the edge of constant and certain doom from Jane & John Q. Peasant’s point of view.

The story behind Suspension of Disbelief began when we started reminiscing about our LARPing days. Every month was filled with evil villains, horrible monsters and world-ending danger; which lead to the question: "Who the hell would want to live here?!"

#kickstarter   #webseries   #LARP  
Benjamin Boardman is raising funds for Suspension of Disbelief: A Fantasy-Comedy Webseries on Kickstarter! Four women struggle to make their way in the most dangerous place in the kingdom: the town they call home.

Caught in a snowstorm? Bundle up with our 15% off http://RiffTrax.com coupon through Wednesday!  The latest weather reports from our trusty meteorologists say that RiffTrax fans in parts of the country are at the mercy of a "potentially historic" snowstorm. Even the normally pleasant San Diego weather at RiffTrax HQ has gone from 75 and sunny to 72 and overcast!

Since the Northeast is expected to turn into Hoth, we're offering 15% off all riffs when you use the coupon code SNOWSTORM through Wednesday* to help keep you warm through the magic of laughter. It's no Tauntaun carcass, but we think it'll help.

Given the current weather conditions, we highly recommend checking out titles like our short Whatever the Weather, or our MP3 audio commentary track for The Day After Tomorrow. Want "ice" jokes without having to watch Batman and Robin? Then get Cool as Ice starring everyone's favorite rapper, Vanilla Ice! There's even a blizzard in our recent short Zlateh The Goat (not to mention one of our most favorite moments ever put to film.) 

Whatever riffs you choose, they are 15% off for a very limited time. So stock up on water, fire up those generators, and stay in with RiffTrax!

Rub some riffs together to stay warm!
* Excludes gift cards. Offer ends 11:59pm Pacific Wednesday, January 28th.
 Dark Power!
Hollywood legend Lash LaRue takes his whip to some no-good Toltec zombie chiefs in our latest B-movie riff! Be sure to get our hilarious version of THE DARK POWER -- ready to Download or Stream!

This restaurant has ruined all pizzerias for me. Unlike many others, when they say wood-fired pizza, they *mean* wood-fired - it isn't just an added flavor. Their ingredients taste fresh, and their pasta isn't just a noodley version of their pizza. If you like food with a Mediterranean flare, this is one place you don't want to miss!
