Hot Stories From Around The Web All Geared Up and Raring to Go! This comic was intended to be the way that developers dress their heroines in comparison to the heroes, but I guess it could also represent the way that a lot of male gamers dress up their female characters, as well. Your choice. See Torneko in the comic? He originally appeared in Dragon Quest IV, but he was also the main character from one of my favorite video games ever: Torneko: The Last Hope. Unfortunately, my copy of the game is now unplayable and I need to get another one. This will actually be my third copy of the game when I finally get around to buying it.
Ironic Situation Let me preface this post by saying that I enjoy a clean headshot as much as the next guy. And I’m not suggesting that violent content should be removed from video games either. In fact, I’m a proponent the belief that giving people the ability to act out this sort of behavior in a fantasy environment decreases the chance of acting it out in reality.  What I’m saying is that I don’t see the logic behind an illegal behavior being considered more acceptable than one that isn’t. I understand that a lot of these laws ideas spring less from logic and more from environmental influences.

So good are these 3d street art works that this man produces, that many of them have featured on TV and in many newspapers globally. image credits The Namib Desert Indoors (12 photos) Inspired by an article he read about abandoned diamond mines in Namibia, photographer Álvaro Sánchez-Montañés wanted to learn more. In his magazine he had only stumbled across one picture of Kolmanskop, a now ghost town in southern Namibia that had once been a rich mining village. Online he found a treasure trove of interesting photos and at that moment promised himself that he would one day experience the Namib desert for himself. He would see with his very own eyes how the desert sands' had reclaimed its space. When he got there, he found "the beauty in the abandoned, of the useless, of the time passing by." Left at the mercy of the Namib desert, the winds had filled the rooms of the deserted buildings with sand.
