BioWare adopted a (sadly) very special and very principled stance in designing one of their recent games, Dragon Age 2. Their stance was simple: relationships are for everybody, whether gay, straight, or anything else in between. You can also have have more than one romance at a time with the game’s characters. In this game, everybody is equal. Too equal, it seems, for one particular straight male gamer who was upset to be on the receiving end of a little flirting from another male character in the game.
Bizarre sexual fetishes are a staple of the human psyche--most everyone has them, and with the arrival of Internet porn, all the walls came crumbling down. Suddenly, everyone everywhere could share their sick, nasty fantasies with the entire world, safe under a veil of anonymity. But the Internet by no means invented these things. As it turns out, they've been around way longer than that stain in your Honda. Tentacle Rape - Late 18th Century
October 4, 2010 The Super Nintendo You never forget your first time. Back then, you didn't care how "edgy" or "cool" a girl was, you just wanted to have fun.
1. Inspector Gadget This guy loves all the bits and pieces associated with gaming. He actually bought the Nintendo Power Glove and the Virtual Boy.
You may or may not know that I am red-green colorblind. Money looks grey to me, pink looks white, brown looks green. No big thing. Since I was born colorblind, I have no frame of reference for how the world is "supposed" to look and, therefore, I'm not constantly in a state of misery and woe over the fact that I can't differentiate maroon from purple. If anything, colorblindness works as a great ice breaker at parties. But what of how it relates to my favorite pastime, videogames?

You may or may not remember a blip on the national radar named Jennifer Keeton . Keeton is a student at Augusta State University, who decided it was possible to pursue a career as a school counselor without ever having to deal with LGBT students. Turns out you kind of have to, Keeton didn't want to, and she was told to straighten up and fly right or pursue her courses at another college. So she did what any fine upstanding Republican would do, she filed a frivolous lawsuit defending her right to live in a world of her own imagining.
Often times, racism can come in under the guise of cartoonish good times. Such was the case with inept multiplatform air racing game Freaky Flyers , released in 2003 by doomed Midway. Players could take control of a motley crew of horrible stereotypes, including Sheik Abdul, a Middle Eastern Ay-rab with a turban and a talking camel; Sammy Wasabi, a horrible Tojo caricature with buck teeth and broken English; Pauli Atchi, a completely legitimate Italian businessman; and Cactus Rose, a "fiery bandita" from Mexico. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

I don't think I ever saw an ending with just the helmet gone. Here's a funny story from my youth. I used to replay Tourian a bunch, enjoying that area of the game a great deal.
These old Disney movies are a little bit like your aging Uncle Frank. Honestly, he means well when he points out that Will Smith is "well-spoken." It's just that he, like the assemblage of clips below, dates from a time when people were unfairly characterized by their ethnic background (the acceptable methods are, of course, religion, geography, sexual preference and income).
After the Nintendo came out with the new Mario Kart for Wii me and my buddies logged quite a few hours getting reaquainted with its cast of characters. One of my friends was having some woman troubles at the time, so somewhere along the line the conversation arrived upon the female sex, and their various gender specific attributes. The combination of Mario, and some healthy drunken gender bashing led me to a complilation of the varying types of woman and her corresponding character from the classic video game. The Princess Peach This is the girl of your dreams. She is beautiful, funny, sexual but not a skank, and generally your view of perfection.
