Hey SJW’s, Please Stop Trying to Ruin Super Mario With Your Gender Politics Nonsense

December 22, 2016 // 1 Comment

While browsing the Internet yesterday I came across an article on Recode titled “It’s 2016, so why is Super Mario still rescuing a cake-baking princess?” The terrible article from a deluded Social Justice Warrior claimed that Princess Peach telling Mario she’ll bake a cake was “sexist.” And then followed it up with some nonsense about what women have done in the past 30 years: It has been 30 years since Mario first rescued the princess back in 1985. Since that time, more than 50 women have gone into space, more than two dozen have been elected to the U.S. [...]

October 21, 2016 // 0 Comments

Bungie has released a new trailer to showcase Destiny’s Halloween themed two week event, Festival of the Lost. The festival returns Tuesday, October 25th and will last until November 8th. Check out the trailer below: Smith’s Sentiment: This was a fun and silly event last year, and while I’m looking forward to its return (a lot of that stuff looks fantastic), I am not looking forward to aspects of it. Too much of Destiny is starting to be locked away behind a pay wall, and while I agree that silly non-light items like these masks and the ornaments is purely cosmetic and thus [...]

United Front Games Reportedly Shuts Down

October 18, 2016 // 2 Comments

Well this came out of nowhere. It seems that United Front Games, the developer behind Sleeping Dogs, Modnation Racers and LittleBigPlanet Karting, has reportedly shut down. The studio was developing the title Smash + Grab which hit Steam Early Access on September 27th. That title is no longer available to purchase. Last year the studio cancelled the planned Sleeping Dogs spinoff Triad Wars. Smith’s Sentiment: This one is rough. It’s always sad to see a developing studio shutdown, but United Front Games was a really talented studio. I thought Modnation Racers was underrated on PS3, [...]
