    W O W

    "Every time I see one of you slackjawed pickletits link me something like 'I’m a moderate #Gamergate’r,' or '#Gamergate in sixty seconds YOUTUBE CLIP,' or 'Here’s an anecdotal story from this one woman we found that completely negates an entire history of misogyny and abuse of woman, not just in videogaming but in the entirety of human existence so support the REAL GAMERS,' it pisses me the fuck off because you are ruining something I enjoy."

  4. I Am Bread Is The Latest Simulator Game And You Are Literally A Piece Of Bread

    No loafing around in this game.

    Bossa Studios has announced the newest creation from their latest game jam (heh), I Am Bread, where, well... you're bread. Described as "[t]he beautiful story of one slice of bread's epic and emotional journey as it embarks upon a quest to become toasted," it looks like the perfect mix of Catlateral Damage and Octodad: Dadliest Catch.

  8. Want To Make Alien: Isolation Less Mind-Numbingly Terrifying? Put The Alien In Squeaky Shoes!

    Almost as nonsensical as Catwoman in high heels!
