Doomsday....sorry, you missed it.Since the concept of the Leap Year was first implemented back in 45BC, there have been about 514 of them.Without the extra day every 4 years, we would be in 2013.As the Mayan Calendar doesn't take leap years into account; 2012 has been and gone.(Edit - no: I'm not smart enough to work that out myself. I read it!)
Turtles Production Shut DownVICTORY!http://uk.ign.com/articles/2012/06/15/ninja-turtles-shut-downParamount has shut down pre-production on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot over "script problems".Translation; Paramount realised that if they continued down the path Bay was going, fans would probably burn their studios to the ground.With luck (and a dollop of common sense) the project will be shelved altogether and the IP left fallow until competent directors/producers are brought on board.I'm going to pretend my little campaign helped with this
My Best Motivational TipWhen I become overcome with the guilt and shame and fear as a result of my constant procrastination, I have one trick to get me off my ass that works every time.Now, lots of other people and blogs and whatever are all like "look how lucky you are" and "puppies and rainbows" and "if you get it done now, you'll feel better" and lots of other positive shit. While all this stuff is true, I'm still playing Assassin's Creed II for like four hours a day. It doesn't motivate me at all. I still don't want to write a 500 word essay on the subtle differences between the book and the film adaptation of The Road that's due, like, tomorrow.So here's what I think of."Michael Bay wants me to fail."Insert your own celebrity arch nemesis if you want to, but basically choose someone so crap that it makes you angry. Preferably someone who's getting paid buckets of money to do whatever they do to piss you off.Competitive nature and the desire to prove your chosen asshole wrong should take over.
Tropes Vs Women: Damsel in Distress Part 3Today marks the 3rd installment of Anita Sarkeesian's "Tropes vs Women in Gaming" series about the Damsel in Distress trope. This time the topic is about approaching the flip side of the coin, games where there is a female protagonist in charge, and why they either fail or aren't enough to combat the reoccurrence of the "kidnap princess" gameplay mechanic.Once again... what the hell is everyone getting so angry about? She has a very valid point, AND she goes into detail about both why ironic subversions aren't beneficial to an overall goal of equality, AND offers suggestions on how to make a damsel in distress game work where the damsel is the protagonist you play as and isn't a hyper sexualized character.All of this is basic gameplay creation 101 stuff, things anyone just starting to make games in the industry should be learning or trying to achieve, and the fact that more people AREN'T trying to fix things is part of the reason why Anita even needs to make videos like this in

TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS OUT THERE....
On Graduating-Hey guys, I know for a lot of you graduation is coming up super fast, and it seems completely absurd that it's been almost a year ago since I was in that boat. I well remember the two options presented to me:1) Get a studio job. Preferably close to home.2) Move back in with my parents. Possibly get a day job or something.I just wanted to remind ...whoever is reading this... that there are about a gazillion alternatives. In fact, any possible train of actions you can conceive of is an option. It's hard to think of options not presented to you as options, but you really can go anywhere and do anything. This is the only time in our lives when we don't have any greater obligations- we don't have a wife and kids to provide for, no company that would collapse without us, our bodies can handle sleeping on a springy old couch for a while. This is EXACTLY when you should take a gigantic risk because the only thing y
