TL;DR

Motwera:

Well, I do not even need to comment on this, 3WORLD! users, you people are free to make one discussion post about this, but be civil about it

Yes, this thing is huge. There was a lot of shit so it needed a lot of words.
I don’t expect most people to read it, it’s largely there to give a full picture, and most importantly to offer proof (because she’s really good at taking advantage of a lack of proof): here’s a link to the TL;DR post.

TL;DR & New Content

If you opt against the TL;DR — yes, this is written almost entirely in shitty metaphors and bitter snark. It’s a post about an ex.

Important: I am adding this excerpt from a clarification I gave to a reader on reddit, who requested I put it on the blog so that others didn’t come away with the same misunderstandings:

There was a typo up for a while that made it seem like Zoe and I were on break between March and June. This has apparently led some people to infer…

My lovely fansite blog, what it had in 2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 40,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 15 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The Perils of Kickstarter: How Erik Chevalier Failed to Make a Game with $122,874

Originally posted on Another Castle:

Since Kickstarter’s inception in 2009, many amazing projects have come to fruition through crowd funding and have left users generally happy.  Occasionally, a project may take a bit longer to produce or may miss the funding mark altogether, but for the most part it is a fantastic way to support a great item with exclusive bonuses.  Board games seem to have a huge following on the site and some have even broken the one million dollar mark (most recently Cthulhu Wars by Sandy Peterson).  With rewards come risks — and with some of those risks come great disappointment.

Take, for example, the most recent failure on Kickstarter: The Doom that Came to Atlantic City.  Publisher Erik Chevalier described “Doom” as a “macabre parody of the classic game Monopoly featuring Cthulhu” with an initial funding goal of $35,000.  Within the course of thirty days, it almost quadrupled its funding…

Vex shares his thoughts on the major comic-con announcements, and goes on a real talk rant. A few comic book movies are getting skewered in this Podcast. We want to know your thoughts on this years event.

The Bonus Point:

KJ Says: Comic-con had some nice movie announcements. I look forward to the ‘Days of Future Past’ X-men film. My hype meter is on an avengers 2 level. I’m excited to see Bishop, and hopefully Cable on the big screen. It looks like were going to get real sentinels this time, rather than the Danger room head cop-out scene in ‘The Last Stand’. Another one coming soon is the Robocop reboot. While I like that this Murphy will have more of a mental battle between his mind and the robot programming, it’s a huge disappointment that the series gets nerfed again to a PG-13 rating. Hey MGM, im pretty sure kids will still buy the toys even if its…
