Reminder that Hideo Kojima requested Nintendo to add Solid Snake to Super Smash Bros. Brawl because his little son was a fan of the SSB series and asked his dad if it was possible to get Snake as a playable character in the next game.

Not only he got the character into the next game but he also personally designed a Metal Gear Solid-themed stage for it and made sure they added remixes from the MG series to it as well,

for his son.

Season 2, Ep. 16 - Graphics vs. Aesthetics

This week, we discuss the important difference between the often-confused “graphics” and “aesthetics.”

Oh look, that thing that drives me crazy.

This.

YESSSSSS. This is just important for any sort of multimedia design in general! Not just games.

Omg you need to WATCH THIS TED TALK RIGHT NOW

It’s (almost entierly non-problematic) feminist: yes

It talks about social ques given to children through kid’s movies and the whole Magical Quest trope: yes

It talks about raising boys to respect women in a way that’s not just chilvarly: yes

It’s written by a man: yes

Watch, listen and learn, because this guy knows what he’s talking about. It’s important to teach the right lessons to both girls and boys.

This is fantastic, funny, and extremely true. Both girls and boys need to learn together that they’re equal, not just “girls can be powerful” and “boys can be powerful”. take a sec to watch this, dashboard!

“…the story where the boy is a hero, who defeats the villain through violence, and collects his reward, which is a woman with no friends and who doesn’t speak.”

WHAT A GOOD LINE THOUGH

I’ve always loved this talk.

“Women are more likely to be attracted to personality and men are more likely to be attracted to physical appearance.”

Woah maybe that’s because we teach women to see men as people and we teach men to see women as objects.

Ding ding ding ding ding.

people with extroverted traits can have depression? people with extroverted traits can be writers? people with extroverted traits can enjoy reading? people with extroverted traits do not exist solely for you to slam with your classist (and usually misogynist, and often racist) stereotypes of shrieking california beach bunnies and jock hunks? in fact, people with extroverted traits can have introverted traits, and the distinction is not as clear as you think it is? you are literally recreating the dichotomy of GOTHS VS PREPS that you acted out on neopets when you were eleven years old because you can’t let go of your US VS THEM mentality? stop it?
