Reliable Source: Sex, Drugs and PETA

Marion Cox talks about his casual love affair in Dragon Age.

Oh, man. That last part about PETA made me laugh my ass off.

"Sorry, PS3 owners; if you want to be lectured by sophistic game designers, you will have to turn on Metal Gear Solid 4 instead."

Or just watch yet another overblown ODST commercial.

Molyneux's development cycles are a perfect metaphor for courtship. You get promised the moon and stars, you're all hyped up that you've found the only game you'll ever need, and once you buy it, you find that the promised features were all smoke and mirrors, the developer secretly hates you, and you'll be miserable until you trade in the game and go back to weekend rentals of new products.

Great read sir. My favorite part was easily the PETA article great job look forward to next week

While I enjoyed pages 1 and 3 (not so much 4...), I can't help but feel that something is missing from page 2. Maybe I'm just off-the-mark today, but it seemed like it lacked an introduction and direction. It might just be me, though.

I feel your pain. In my RP I just realized the female character I was role playing. An uncharacteristically old but sexy MILF who just had twins with another character in the RP. I just realized we are two grown men role playing a fantasy marriage and relationship. Which because a big Double-u tee eff.

Ha! That PETA part made me laugh so effin much! nice read.

That gave me a good laugh. Thanks! And I'm an Alistair fan too. ;)

I guess PETA hasn't played Overlord 2 where you club the baby seals

I know what you mean, Alistar made me question my sexuality a bit, he is just so sweet and funny. Though I ended up with Leliana, it's the voice and unintentional ranting.
Dam you I just finished the game the night before last, thus winning back my life, and you are making me want to play it again. *sobs* Guess those game addiction centers could actually come in handy..
Edit: I would be over the moon if my Grandma bought me space invaders socks.

No, I got that too; which 8-bit merchandise retailer would this be again? It's like the whole introductory paragraph was omitted or something.

I loved the last article though. What was it about again? Meh, who cares.

Bunnybunnybunnybunnybunnybunnybunnybunny...

Reaffirming his sexuality through playing lots of Call of Duty and questioning other player's sexuality?

I almost wet my pants reading that.

Actually, that PETA game idea could be a fun idea if spun a bit differently.

What if we humans were being hunted, but by animals? We don't have to make them like furries, but maybe maybe tweak designs enough so that cute bunnies could hold uzis, deers could wield machetes, and baby seals could club YOU. It could have stealth and action aspects as we hide from our hunters and fight back as we manage to gain and/or improvise our own weaponry.

Or what if we were the cute innocent animals, but in order to fight back against the evil humans hunting us, we go a bit evil ourselves? Like playing a bunny that can go for a grown man's throat, ala Monty Python and the Holy Grail's Killer Rabbit.

I WANT Bunny Genocide... Someone has to make a freeware game...

It's possible with Oghren, and Sten. From what I heard. /run-off

Anytime is a good time to pick on PETA. That bit made me laugh pretty hard. Also loved the bit with Peter, because he knows alot about making promises and not delivering...

And my name was on page one too.. Yay Me!

So I went back to quote that part about how the developer secretly hates you, and low and behold that paragraph disappeared. WTF? I just wanted to thank you for saying something that needed to be said, and a satire column was the perfect place for it.

"reaffirming my masculinity in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 through the creative use of pejoratives and questioning of the sexual orientation of particularly terrible players."

I know it was for a laugh, but way to be a stereotypical d-bag on multiple levels.

PETA making a game to make us shoot animals and feel guilty?

I doubt it; if an animal has to die in a game so be it. Like in real life; if I want a hamburger then cows are gonna die. And painfully, if that thing about fear marinating meat is true.

But I like those commercials...

Wow.

Someone's been burnt before.

Wouldn't mind playing as a grizzly bear hunting rednecks with rifles.

I want bunny genocide to be a real game soooo much!

Solid gold, all of it. I'm crying manly tears of laughter. x'D
