I noticed this video on the Northern Resistance forums.

It really reminds me of my favourite CS:S gun sounds video:

It seems to have inspired a lot of other videos:

Call of Duty 4

Battlefield 2

Paramount is creating these games to appeal to gamer girls, because statistically women prefer casual games.

I don’t understand why, though, that the games have to be so cheesy. I cringe whenever I go to EB Games and see games for girls where the main challenge is choosing a pretty outfit. Why do women need their own video games, anyway? Video game companies are implying that the current selection is only available to men, which is clearly false.

The best day of my life was the day that I beat Bowser in Super Mario. Even my 8 year old self would not be impressed with these fluff games.

Is it merely a cash grab? Do they really think that women only like games with frills, lollipops, and rainbows?

I say have the best of both worlds- I go by pretty in pink or pinkNINJA whilst I’m sniping someone right in the face.

“Thanks fer standin’ still, wanker!”

Casbros from the Italian clan n!Gage created some very cool TF2 style Magic cards. I find them extremely helpful in learning my Italian TF2 vocabulary 🙂 For example, I had no idea that the heavy was called “il grosso,” but it makes SO much sense now.
