I like art, video games, comics, motion graphics, movies, books, and lots of other stuff. I'm pretty bad at filling in 'descriptions' though. Whoops.

I’m the boss, CEO, queen if you’re feeling dramatic. It doesn’t matter. Omega has no titled ruler and only one rule…don’t fuck with Aria.

I remember the days when games were about worlds you could explore and about being good, and not about who's got representation and gender this and sexuality that. I miss those days.

Those days miss you, too. I recently found a yellowed letter under one of the floorboards, and it was addressed to you and signed by those days with a tear-stained kiss of lipstick.

Meanwhile, in the present, those of us who work in the industry and who are—amazingly—able to consider more than one idea at the same time, will continue to create good games about worlds you can explore AND occasionally talk about inclusivity.

If you are feeling compassion fatigue, I think it might be okay to sit out those discussions, at least until you get your strength back. While it will be tough not having you available for close consultation, somehow we will soldier on.

So, I found some blatant art theft at Target yesterday. There I was, randomly browsing the alcohol aisle, when a bottle of wine caught my eye - Girl & Dragon. Something about the label looked very familiar.


Let’s take a closer look:



It took me about five seconds to recognize the fact that this artwork is a complete ripoff of one of my favorite artists, Takato Yamamoto.

Here’s his piece “Secret Traces of Night” (夜の秘蹟):


So yeah. Girl & Dragon, you kind of suck.


this is rly gay i’m sorry (based on this post)


For anyone who doesn’t know who Michael Brown is or what’s been going on in Ferguson

  • Saturday Aug. 9, 2014: Reports out of Ferguson, MO. that a 17 y/o boy was shot 10 times by police over stolen candy
  • He is identified as 18 y/o Michael Brown. The store Mike Brown allegedly stole candy from…


Most of what I used to be had vanished in the waves
The memories of the boy I’ve been were drowning and you saved them
Now I remember the joy and the meaning of the fate
The color of the truth and the sound of sunny days. (x)

My heart clenches a little when I look at this, but it’s perfect. Thank you.
