  1. Conservative Institute Releases Video Telling Feminists to Stop Criticizing Video Games

    Don't you know games are for boys? So it's okay that they have boy stuff—like misogyny.

    You know what the Internet doesn't have enough of? People trying to tell feminists that they're overreacting. Good thing the American Enterprise Institute's Christina Hoff Sommers was on hand to delve into the world of hardcore gaming, and come up with the conclusion that its critics must just be "hipsters with degrees in cultural studies." Which she, of course, says with a mocking tone, because what do people with degrees in cultural studies know about culture?

  2. Welp, What A Surprise: New Oculus Rift Boob-Grabbing Game Endorses Non-Consensual Touching

    Social Justice Warriors, let our powers combine!

    According to Rocket News 24, one "resourceful" Internet user has taken it upon himself to MacGyver a boob-grabbing game using an Oculus Rift, a novelty mouse pad, and a lady apparently animated to appear nonconsenting. Sigh. Boobs trump "women are hard to animate," I guess.

  4. Dancing Mad: How a Video Game Character Came to be the Standard by Which I Measure All Villains

    "You licentious howler!"

    When I was in high school, my younger brother showed me a video game he had just gotten into. It was called Final Fantasy 6 (or 3, depending on whether you go by the Japanese or American release number). There were so many things to like about it, from interesting characters to fabulous soundtracks and interactive storylines… but the thing that did it for me, the reason I stayed and watched as my brother played FF VI, was the villain.

  5. Underneath Princess Peach’s Ballgown Is a Black Void Of Nothingness, Plus Legs

    I have no underwear and I must scream.

    Good news for those of us who get annoyed by weird out-of-place sexualization of characters in video games—when Princess Peach is flipped over in Super Smash Bros for the 3DS, you don't see her butt the same way you used to in previous games like Brawl. The bad news? If you stare long enough, you might see the fabric of reality unwinding on itself instead. Maybe I'll take a butt instead, thanks.

    Reports were creeping around the Internet last week that Microsoft was looking to buy Minecraft developer Mojang, along with the game itself, for $2 billion. The sale is now officially happening with an even ridiculously higher price tag of $2.5 billion, and we're one step closer to every tech company just buying every other tech company until there's a giant tech mega-corporation that rules the world... and builds everything out of poorly-textured cubes.

    So THAT'S the deal with Shifty Looking Cow.

    Here's a fun fact not mentioned in this video: I have been playing ME3 multiplayer off and on for two and a half years, and I have yet to unlock a single Asari character. I don't even care what class it is at this point. I just know that multiplayer mode has it out for me.
