I have many titles. Lazy. Gamer. Dude. Brother. Wannabe Artist. Mostly Apathetic Person. Rad Dude. Take your pick.

My last two io moths emerged last week. The top was the only male of the batch I had emerge. He was really pretty and friendly, decided to try to fly before I got out the door to release him and just flew onto my shirt. The bottom was the last one, she came out over the weekend sometime and managed to wriggle out of the container I was keeping the caterpillars/pupae in. I didn’t find her until last night when she started flying around my room in the dark. I’m happy that they’re all done since I was starting to wonder if the pupa weren’t alive. I started with 3rd instar caterpillars and got them to the moth stage.

I was watching some gameplay of Metal Gear Solid V and whenever the camera was towards Quiet, she would give a reassuring thumbs up and I thought that was just really cool.

It got me thinking about how much I’d love to see more banter and interaction between characters games. Especially in a more open world game where you have a group of people. Xenoblade kind of did that with the victory quotes and having them differ a bit when certain characters were in your battle team. Dragon’s Dogma also did something like that with the Pawn’s chatter, except that was mostly the pawns telling you things about whatever you were in the middle of.

I just think it would be the coolest thing if you were just walking around with your team and if things were pretty uneventful, one of them would just strike up a conversation and just have a bunch of genuine interaction between characters. I realize it’s a pretty big thing, considering how many lines you’d need to record for it to not be constantly repeating, but it would be probably my favorite thing ever.

the gaming industry annoys me a lot because it has the potential to be the most creative and diverse outlet we have but like. nah. we got cod. and fifa. 0 female leading characters. the exact same slightly rough looking, dark haired, middle aged white dude.. 3/10

But at least you can image

0 female leading characters.

More is better, but there are definitely plenty of good female characters. I don’t know why everyone pretends that there aren’t any out there.

A lot of people bring up issues of sexism in Skullgirls, due to many of the characters’ fanservice-y fashion choices. It’s a valid reason to be concerned about, for sure, but there’s nothing inherently sexist with making characters attractive, and this goes for all genders. Now, if the characters were intentionally designed provocatively simply to serve as eye-candy or as a sexual object in the game, then we would have an issue. Fortunately, this is not the case in Skullgirls: each character is fully capable of fighting for themselves, and they aren’t trying to use their bodies to get what they want.

I just closed the drawing without saving…

…DAMMIT.

I guess there won’t be a color version of that any time soon.

Lightning strikes every once and a while and I manage to not cause a black hole of suck when I touch a drawing tablet. I present my 50th inconsistent portrait of Felix, the man with a million faces. I’m mostly happy with how this turned out. I’m not sure if I’m actually done with it yet, I started coloring him in with some surprisingly pleasing results, so that’s a possibility.

Once I get my Smash Bros in the mail, we should totes play against each other!

That would be quite rad.

I also play Bravely Default so you can get all those friend bonuses for that, too.
