“Comic book pros are not happy with how corporate Hollywood creates multi-billion dollar movie franchises, but doesn’t share the wealth with THEM. This is a decades old problem in the industry. But Hollywood is spreading around “shut up money” to some pros to keep the peace and avoid any PR nightmares. So why work for Marvel or DC when you can make and OWN your own stuff?”

“Netflix didn’t have a terribly good earnings call. They missed their revenue goals and the media says they’re “bleeding” subscribers. Netflix stock has taken a hit and investors aren’t happy. So what do they do to counter the financial damage? Hire a new team of “diversity and inclusion” officers to oversee all live-action and animated productions, so they can make more content by committee. Smart…”

“A UK library brought in a “Rainbow Dildo Butt Monkey” to entertain CHILDREN during their summer reading program. No, it did not go well. No, they will NEVER do that again. Hilarity did NOT ensue. The library issued a formal apology on Twitter.”

LOL!

Probably the most open minded, free expression those kids have ever seen.

Uh Oh!…the mind prison has been challenged.

“Welcome to Nintendo Voice Chat! This week Casey DeFreitas is joined by Brian Altano, Tom Marks, and Mitchell Saltzman to talk about Valve’s new handheld gaming system, the Steam Deck, and how it compares to the Nintendo Switch. And, Tom got to go hands-on with the new Nintendo Switch OLED model, and he shares his thoughts on the new and improved screen. Plus, Skyward Sword HD launches this week, and the panel talks about impressions of Nintendo’s latest HD remaster.”


Steam Deck – The future of Linux gaming has never looked brighter

I’m kind of in the same boat…I’d love to have one, but I don’t even pick up my old hand held units often.

That’s a lot of money to be spending…on something I’m not sure I’ll get a lot of use out of…Yet, having a genuine tiny PC and being able to fiddle around with my Steam account and games is attractive…

Though, the one game I’m deep, deep, deep into [Fire Pro Wrestling World] is notorious for having it’s save file corrupted in the cloud…which, given the way the game functions, is essentially a death sentence for my own FPW projects…should I ever open the door to allowing cloud saves, and one gets corrupted.


Valve Announces Their Own Switch Pro

“Today Valve announced a new system called the Steam Deck. This device is a hybrid model similar to the Switch that will also have a dock for connecting to a TV. The Steam Deck is much more powerful than the Switch leading to comparisons of not just the Switch but also the long rumored Switch Pro.”


We NEED To Talk About Valve’s New STEAM DECK…

“Another week, another console. While one whelmed, this foray by Valve has me pumped! It answers the bell to many things we have wanted in handheld gaming, but for me it’s a lot of the aspects outside of the SteamOS that have me excited. Retro games, xCloud streaming, and SKYRIM MODS IN BED! Think of the possibilities!”

“An article is making the rounds about how Disney Parks are for EVERYONE and if you think it’s “woke” then it’s not for YOU. Actually, it’s not for anyone making under six figures a year at this point. It doesn’t matter how “diverse and inclusive” Disney makes the parks… most people can’t afford it anymore. Did we mention that the author seems to be a full-time Disney spokesperson on a bunch of different blogs? Yeah, that’s not surprising…”

“Virtue Signalers are prone to being narcissists, psychopaths and manipulators (aka the “Dark Triad”) according to a recent academic study. Executive job site The Ladders sent out an email about it this morning, and seemed to be indicating that you shouldn’t hire these people. Red Bull must’ve gotten the memo, as they fired their entire “woke” marketing team according to the Wall Street Journal.”

“TSR Games has a new PR manager, its Twitter account has gone missing, and the company has released a statement addressing recent Twitter drama surrounding Ernie Gygax Jr., son of Dungeons & Dragons creator Gary Gygax. Gygax was accused of making vaguely “anti-trans” comments on a livestream interview, and Twitter rando dogpiled him almost immediately. Apparently, TSR Games has also parted ways with Giantlands as well, per the official Giantlands Twitter account. So WHERE exactly does this leave the would be heir apparent to the legendary TTRPG developer…?”

“My Little Pony: A New Generation on Netflix will be about how Equestria has become racist and segregated. No, we are not kidding. Equestria has gone to crap after Friendship is Magic, and it’s up to an activist pony to make sure everypony is on the right side of history. I WISH I was making this up…”

Twitter needs to cease existing…period.
