Part 2 of Hyrule Warriors set
Now that I think about it, they made Fi and Midna playable… I wonder if they though of Navi at some point

Its been NINE YEARS and i still dont think anyone knows exactly why teen titans was cancelled
Same reason Young Justice and Green Lantern The Animated Series were canceled: Girls liked it. Bruce Timm finally up an’ said it out loud in an interview a while back when he was asked why in the hell GL:TAS had been canceled when it was doing so well on every front; DC’s animation department has institutionally decided that feee-males don’t/can’t/shouldn’t like superheroes, so even if a show is drawing in great viewership numbers and has great toy sales, once they find out that it’s popular with women and girls, they pull the plug on it. Cartoon Network loved Teen Titans— two million viewers for new episodes will do that— and wanted a Season Six, and the production staff was already in the planning stages for it; they were going to have a big arc about Terra and why she was Living Normal, and do a lot more with the extended Titans team members.
"i don’t care of you’re straight, gay, black, white, trans, or cis, because i hate everyone!"
As a black woman I am frankly so done with people ignoring the shit I go through because they rather talk about themselves. EVERY SINGLE DISCUSSION OF RACISM is impeded by White people trying to say something about themselves. When will it ever be time to not focus on white people? When can we ever focus on discussions concerning actually oppressed minorities without White people hijacking the argument?
And how many times do I have to say that not every single white person has it better than every single black person? That the system is without a doubt slanted in your favor? Why do I have to say all my grievances and include “not ALL white people” between every word to get you too actually feel sorry enough to want to help?
My people are fucking being executed, unfairly discriminated and punished and harmed, we are fucking drowning you only care about yourselves. You act like every time a black person speaks they are saying all white people live in fucking palaces. The narcissism is suffocating. Can you please give a fuck about someone else with a different skin tone for two fucking whole seconds?

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view
A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”
I think the reason he’s acting all controversial is because the recent run of Jontrons have been pretty lackluster, compared to when he was in California. They’re not as funny as they could have been. It’s like the magic has gone. He doesn’t seem as inspired. Do if you run your mouth and get bad attention, you’re still getting attention, right?
Honestly, if you wanna watch funny Jontron style reviews, watch Caddicarus. Or older JonTrons. Or AVGN.
I actually think that since he moved to New York his videos have been much better in quality (the Food Fight episode is one of my favorite videos ever,) but it really does feel like recently he’s almost been purposely creating controversies. for no reason at all..?
The whole “retarded” scenario on Twitter really, really seemed super immature. What Jon should have done at that point was apologize or even just ignore the tweet and move on; instead, the whole thing blew up by his own design and then he tried to defend himself with some absolutely agonizing logic (“Go complain about Gaza instead of me”, as if people can’t care about more than one topic at a time.) He even went so far as to have an (incredibly biased) interview a few days after the whole ideal, in which he announced that it was “his job as a comedian to be offensive”, and tried to paint himself as a hero for “calling that guy out” and that he was not in the wrong.
The whole situation is up for debate on whether you thought it was right or wrong for him to call the PS4 retarded or whatever, but absolutely no one can deny how incredibly immature his approach to the aftermath was. And he acted as though he wasn’t expecting it to blow up in his face when he was the one who stepped over the line by calling the original Tweet creator retarded and then tried to shrug it off with “wow it’s just a joke guys calm down” and using redirection tactics instead of actually acknowledging what he did head-on. It really, really screamed like a 6th grader trying to be edgy to impress his friends.
At the time I saw this message I was unaware of the recent controversy with the gender representation in games (haven’t had internet in five days thanks to Comcast lawl) but he, once again, blew this up by his own design. He is aboslutely entitled to his own opinion and I agree that stereotypes of men in games must be addressed, but if he really actually cared about that issue he would bring it up as an entirely separate topic instead of latching on to an unrelated tweet and screaming “but men too!”. That’s not an argument, that’s you trying to put another argument down via faulty redirection tactics, and then not actually talking about the argument you brought up in the first place. How men are treated in games vs. how women are treated in games are entirely different and should be addressed as separate issues, because that’s what they are. And then to prove his argument he uses a picture of Conan the Barbarian as an example…which had women in battle bikinis in the background begging for Conan’s attention. Yeah.
Really I’m more disappointed that anything else at Jon. Unlike the way Arin has handled the recent controversies with Game Grumps, in which he directly apologizes to others and makes an effort to be a better person, Jon reacts on his first instinct and uses some incredibly awful behaviors and arguments that have been disproven literally thousands of times. Then he argues that “this is what makes my comedy good” and tries to shrug it off. I just…what? Seriously? Come on, Jon. What are you even trying to prove here?

tim schafer, founder of double fine studios, which made gems like psychonauts, grim fandango, brutal legend, the secret of monkey island and other great games posted a tweet with a link to a video talking about violence against women in video games.
jon jafari, who is following tim on twitter, decided he wasn’t happy watching a video that had comments disabled that talked about such a sensitive topic, and decided to make his opinion very well known.
and then as jon’s voracious fanboys were attacking mr. tim schafer on twitter, telling him to kill himself since he’s “outlived his welcome”, jon decides to send this tweet in:
which not only spurned his fanbase on to send hatemail towards tim, but also made tim out to be the bad guy in this conversation.
which he absolutely wasn’t.
Really the issue here is that if Jon wanted to talk about objectification and stereotypes of men in games, he can! Just do it as a separate subject instead of every other MRA that can only ever talk about that topic whenever women bring up how they are treated in games. If you think the way men are treated in games are a problem, make your own argument about it separated from the troubles that women go through in this medium, because the struggles are completely different. Latching on to something and whining, “But men too!” does not help your argument. It shows that you really don’t care unless it’s brought up by someone else, in which case you need to immediately derail it in order to prove your “point”. Men being stereotyped in games is a problem, but it’s completely different from the way that women are and should instead be taken on as a different subject entirely, because that’s exactly what it is.
Also, the fact that the comments have been disabled on that video probably has to do with the fact that she was getting constant death and rape threats from those very people who “disagreed” with her.
I swear I don’t know what’s up with Jon but he’s just been screaming “2edgy4me” behavior recently for what seems like no reason at all.
YELLS LOUDLY BC ARIN
