when it comes to Fallout I’m more and more convinced that the rest of the world is fine, fairly well rebuilt, and looking at the US with a mixture of horror and fascination

botanists poring over satellite imagery marvelling at how literally nothing has regrown in the entire period

anthropologists astonished by the prevalence of barbarity and violence and the utter breakdown of the rigid class and social structure that had been in place before
phonecalls going between world leaders in the 2280s like
Germany: they’ve regained flight.
France: oh god. no. we need to prepare, warn everyone.
G: it’s okay, it’s a zeppelin. maximum speed 60mph.
G: seriously?
F: yes.
G: [snorting laughter] wow. how long’s that taken them. 200 years? classic.
F: I know, right? I can’t wait to tell England.
G: Can we videoconference it? I have to see her face.

YES

Like, the reason we haven’t had a game set in China is because they’re just fine. It would be a slightly radioactive but civilized country with beautiful landscapes. Maybe some hyperintelligent mutant pandas.

Okay, I still want there to be a game there.

Also, with China’s ancestor worship thing: would ghouls face any discrimination in China? They might be honored. I can just imagine captain Zhou coming home in his submarine and finding this massive family of descendants all delighted to finally meet him.

What a punch

This is assault and illegal. He may spew nothing but bile but his right to free speech must be protected

Ain’t nobody throwing him in prison, so his freedom of speech isn’t being violated.

Also, learn what speech is exempt from it, like, for instance, fighting words. Words that by their very utterance inflict injury, and speech that incites an immediate breach of the peace, kind of like, yknow, saying you want to exterminate all of their kind of people. Basically, talk shit get hit is 100% protected.

I swear people that yell about Freeze Peach have no idea what it means. If you provoke someone and then they act on that provication, then it’s on you, not them.

yes good

Hey free speech never came with a guarantee that you won’t get punched in the face when you support some ignorant shit.

punch all nazis 2k17

Actually, the nazi dude was already assaulting people. He was screaming hate in the street and throwing stuff at people before mr Hero there punched his lights out. He was defending the community.

9) what, if anything, do you do for inspiration?

I just play with endless variations on a theme until something comes up and I go ‘ooh, interesting’. Sometimes these themes are so convoluted I doubt if anyone really wants to read it, like the weird Nate/Matrix crossover story I’m writing at the moment. Sometimes, they can work out pretty well overall. I am basically always playing with aus and aus of aus- and so on

12) your weaknesses as an author

Plot. I- don’t really have plots. They just sort of happen over time and then I have to go back and rework what I’ve done already. Sex, Love and Robotics has no set goal and I’m still woolly as to what happens from here to Civil War (where I know exactly what’s going to happen).

13) your strengths as an author

I’m a massive Cormac McCarthy fan, so the one thing I do focus on is use of language. Picking out the right word to evoke a scene using the minimum wordcount. I think I’m improving on that.

since the scum that is western media isnt saying shit about this: cuba is being fucking torn apart by hurricane irma. my people are taking shelter in caves and cold war era bomb shelters. i have zero sympathy for you filthy westerners that only like to use third world countries as a rhetorical device but are nowhere to be found when we need y'all the most.

westerners should reblog this lmfao.

if ya’ll wanna help out those in the caribbean affected by this go to oxfamamerica.org you can choose specifically where you donate to and it’s been highly researched by those at thelifeyoucansave.org and is featured as a trustworthy and effective charity!

I work in the non-profit sector and my top recs right now are Doctors Without Borders, Oxfam, Habitat for Humanity, and Shelterboxusa. (Edited for a massive typo due to lack of caffeine.) As for ratings, always check at least 3 ratings sites and even then, if you’re not reading the detail and financial reports, take ratings with a grain of salt. Charitynavigator gives the American Red Cross (this is not your local Red Cross, btw) a 4 star rating. And we’ve seen how that goes.

But: yes, Cuba, the British and US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and most of the Caribbean/West Indies, are devastated right now. Let’s not forget about them just because Western media is focused on the fact that Disney World closed.

*jumps on this like a fucking animal*
YES. YES YES YES YES YESSS. X6-88 IS MY FAVORITE OMFG.

The institute does not teach synths about sex beyond that sex is something that exists, so it’s a big mystery. Fortunately, X6 is a fast learner and finds sex to be quite interesting both physically and mentally. The action of letting your guard down enough to be intimate, the actual concept of intimacy - x6 is so curious in the beginning and Sole is willing to teach!

Other companions help (though some more reluctant to) such as Curie teaching him more in depth about anatomy, Hancock explaining kinks and the specifics (the ghoul has to be heavily convinced to do this explanation for X6), even Maccready throws a bone once in a while about blunt terminology.

X6 and Sole start off slow, Sole giving the courser sensual massages, teaching X6 how to touch himself, guiding his hands across Sole’s body. It’s all very vanilla and sweet at first, and Sole makes X6 cum so many times their first night it’s a little surprising.

X6 can find himself falling into both the submissive roll and the dominant roll, depending on the day.

On more Sub days, he follows orders like a champ. Sole Pampers and coddles him in bed by making the pleasure all about him (which he is not used to being cared for in such a fashion) - starting by making X6 lay flat while giving him a hand job, other hand caressing his head and occasionally petting his soft hair. Moving on to riding him or giving oral. Sole tears down the defensive barriers slowly to make X6 quite a mewling, moaning, twitchy mess.

Likes breath play. Likes sensory stimulation such as being blindfolded then touched all over. He is a very touch-starved man. (Please treat my boy right)

On Sub days, X6 call’s Sole “Sir/Ma'am” and, by Sole’s request, their name. Fuck does it sound good when it is moaned out of X6.

Favorite position is Cowgirl/boy, Sole riding them.

On more Dominant days it is quite the experience. It’s a little shocking how he slips into it so seamlessly. One moment they could be fighting, the next they are fucking against the wall, Sole’s arms bound.

Likes being called “Master”, but also gets a funny pleasure calling Sole “Sir/Ma'am” even if he is being the dominant one. It makes Sole very flustered when X6’s composure is unrocked as he called them “Sir/Ma'am” while fucking them into the mattress. Really loves teasing.

Knows what his voice can do and boy does he abuse that beautiful voice privilege on Sole.

Likes bondage a lot - likes using rope to tie up Sole with intricate robe designs that highlight and bind their most beautiful physical features. He finds out about it from an off-handed comment by Cait (happened to overhear her just mention tying someone up, probably in a metaphor). X6 learned rope-tying on his own and learned it very quickly.

Is a little rougher, just from having a lot of stamina and not used to being gentle in any situation. Has to actually be told a lot that he is going way to hard, or that his grip is too tight a lot when first starting out. X6 then gets really confused when Sole would ask them to go harder - thankfully Sole is patient but it’s hard to be patient when there is a cock deep inside you.

When receiving oral for the first time he was shocked by how good it felt. He really loves oral a lot. He quite likes giving oral as well, since it allows him to really see Sole’s anatomy up close. He is getting better at it.

Favorite position is Doggy style - likes to smack Sole’s ass as he pounds into them. Any position where he goes in from behind he likes. Also likes “The Pretzel” (the camel ride, the pretzel dip. I have no idea if that is what it is actually called. It’s when the bottom is laying down sideways and the top is slotted between their legs)

Really loves to fill Sole up. Watching them become overstimulated makes X6 feel like he has accomplished his goal. He is not too good at cuddling or after care though. He is learning, he is really trying his best.

Has a rule that they never do anything inside the Institute. Sole is willing to comly with this rule - though they would love to have sex on a real bed with a real shower afterwards.

here’s to fucking hoping m8

Uh guy? This is a company pulling a youtube video because they didn’t like what it said. Yes, the dude is a colossal arse, but do you like let’s play videos? Review videos? Let-Bash-the-Shitty-Game videos? Because this has just shown asshole developers they can get away with pulling content if they don’t like what’s being done with it.

What youtube should have done is take the video down themselves for violating terms of use. Instead, they’ve set a dangerous precedent.

Apparently, back in 1946 when bolshing around Europe, Ho Chi Minh (Vietnamese Lenin) met Ben-Gurion (Israeli George Washington) and asked if he wanted to set up a Jewish state in Vietnam. Ben-Gurion said no thank you, he was still holding out for Palestine.

But imagine….

What if he’d said yes?

Fuck Nazis and Confederates, there’s an alternate history I’d like to see. 

It even makes a kinda bit of sense. If Ben-Gurion had thought there was no chance of outsing British in Palestine, maybe taking on the French (who’d had the stuffing kicked out of them in WW2) might have been more realistic. Maybe the Jews of Europe (most of whom were still sitting in what had been old concentration camps, waiting for something to happen) might have decided going to a country; where the local population thought antisemitism was a kind of nasty cold, sounded rather tempting.

But then what?

Would there have been like, some wild Viet-Jew united army against the French? Would the Jewish population have been okay with Vietnam being redder than the planet Mars? What the hell would China have thought? Would America have invaded? Would antisemitism be more common in the west, due to its association with communism?

Trailer

Okami HD will be available on December 12, 2017 in both digital and physical formats for

$19.99 / £15.99 / €19.99

.

The original game, released to critical and consumer acclaim in 2006, was hailed as one of the most beautiful games ever created, and this latest release with its renowned Sumi-e ink art style is now even more breath-taking as the graphics have been updated to take advantage of modern high resolutions. Okami HD will be compatible with Xbox One X and PS4 Pro whilst featuring stunning 4K graphics on Xbox One X, PS4 Pro and supported PC hardware.

In Okami HD players take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess who inhabits the form of a legendary white wolf Shiranui on a quest to defeat Orochi, an eight-headed demon and tyrannical monster responsible for turning the world into a ruined wasteland. Players must use Amaterasu’s magical abilities and arsenal of items, attacks and Celestial Brush techniques to restore the land of Nippon to its previous glory full of life and colour. Along the way, Amaterasu will be called upon to help a cast of quirky and intriguing characters and defeat a bevy of brutal enemies to rid the land of Orochi’s curse.

Players will be able to choose between playing in a modern widescreen format or the original 2007 release’s 4:3 ratio. Interactive loading game screens from the original game are also included, allowing players to earn bonus demon fangs which can be traded for in-game items.

Oh damn. Maybe this will be easier to play on PC? I literally gave up on playing this on the Wii because I couldn’t get past a particular boss. Hated the controller mechanic.

Just responded to a shooting beneath my window. The victim was in agonal respirations when I pulled him from the vehicle. Myself and a medical student who lives in my building rendered first aid with no equipment. Police when they arrived on scene did not offer medical assistance and claimed none of them had medical kits when I was screaming for supplies. While myself and my neighbor were performing chest compressions one of the officers took my concealed carry piece and pulled me away to take down my information while my neighbor continued chest compressions alone. I got into an argument with more than one of the officers about their failure to use their individual medical kits. One ejected me from the crime scene while the victim remained without definitive medical care and another informed me that medical kits were “only for situations involving an active shooter”. He said this while responding to a shooting.

I guess I probably don’t even have to say it considering the police apathy towards the victim, but the victim was a black man.

So now I’m enraged, covered in blood, and sick to my stomach. Police are not protectors.

Medical supplies are replaceable. People are not.

Don’t trust cops. Black lives matter.
