Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Retro Revolution: 'Cho 'Nuff

Posted on Saturday, March 10 @ 05:42:22 PST by KevinS

It'll get in your head, probably through the hole up top of it.

Mass Effect keeps getting pulled into the spotlight for its potential to create a gay character. Through certain choices, your character can get some lovin' from characters of either (any?) gender. Combine that with the news out of various US states legalizing same-sex marriage (and the on-going struggle of my home state of California to eliminate Prop 8 altogether) [Don't worry, it's actually unconstitutional. ~Nick_Tan] and it's time to think about games that make me a proud LGBT gamer.

The initial thought my brain went to, however, was Cho Aniki.

Awesome as it is, it's not the ideal image for the gay community: a prince and princess orbited by two muscle men, who shot stuff through a hole in the top of their heads, taking down other flying bald muscle men, some muscle guys on what look to be rolling office chairs, and lots of spandex bouncing like crazy. And this isn't just a one-off weirdo moment like many games in Japanthis is a series. There are seven games!

I've only been able to play one game in the seriesone of only two brought to Americabut the sheer amount of implied nudity and weird imagery (seriously, almost a decade before the dancing pandas and skinny jeans in Katamari Damacy) made this a license no one expected to make to the States… except by that one weird guy who loves uncomfortable stuff to show his friends. Like me! I love showing stuff to people to see them squirm in their seat and laugh painfully at the absurdity of it all.

The kicker? It's actually a fun shooter! The enemies are inventive, the controls are easy to grasp and work, and it's so offbeat, it's funny. Has anybody ever played it or heard of it? What did you think? Would you play something more homoerotic than a UFC game?
