>Okay, folks. Sorry for the radio silence. (I’ve been trying to check in with the comment threads since things have been pretty busy…) I got a MASSIVE video-editing project with a crazily short deadline dumped in my lap, and it’s consuming almost every waking moment of my existence. Literally.
But I was feeling guilty, so here are some things that are WTF and some things that are not so WTF.
WTF the first

WTF the second
WTF the third
Lastly, I wanted to link to an article about the upcoming Tomb Raider game. A lot of people have lauded the redesign of Lara, but perhaps there is a cause for trepidation. The feature on IGN seemed very enthusiastic about the realistic death animations and describes several ways in which Lara can die, including the gem:
All of which should keep you happy if you enjoy watching bad things happening to pretty ladies.
And this is why female gamers hate IGN. Still, I’m a bit nervous now for how the new and improved Lara will fare. Here’s hoping she doesn’t meet with the same fate as Samus in Other M.
Thankfully, I have something to get rid of the bad taste…
Awesome the first

Awesome the second
Last but not least, I’ll link to a video that a friend sent me the link to: an episode of Extra Credits by the Escapist about female video game characters. It’s long, but it’s well worth watching. Also, it makes fun of Other M and Ivy, which I support.
That’s it for this week folks. Things will return to normal next week.
