"Love does not dominate; it cultivates."
I figured that wearing this bracelet I made everywhere would be sign enough for people to infer that I’m queer, and they would stop assuming I’m straight just because I don’t have any snappy mannerisms and am not really fashion-oriented.
But apparently people can’t take the hint (even though I think it’s VERY clear), since today after my German class a girl was telling me about how her brother was hit on by a gay guy at the language school, commenting on how there are so many gays there. And I just stood there thinking “… Wat. Why are you telling me assuming I’m straight? Didn’t you get my bracelet’s message? Wait, then my crush hasn’t probably got the message either, and thinks I’m straight? What is going ooonnn”.
Sigh. I guess I’ll have to wear a clearer bracelet, somehow.

Being good to each other is so important, guys.

So you’re interested in the MOTHER/Earthbound series

revengeance:

But you’re just too lazy to find the games by yourself, right? Worry not.

I see a lot of people around here saying they’re interested in the series but they can’t find the roms and stuff. That’s why I made a .rar with all of the three games (EarthBound Zero, EarthBound and the english-translated MOTHER 3 rom) with the respective emulators and some other useful stuff like the EarthBound Zero’s easy patch (if you patch the game with this, the exp you gain after battles will be like in EB and the game will get easier, making it friendlier for any kind of gamer) for those who want to experience the original NES version of the game instead of the GBA one (which is  also included in the .rar)

You can download the whole thing here.

As a tip, I would recommend you to play the games in the right order (EarthBound Zero, EarthBound and then MOTHER 3), since well, they work as one big story, so EB and M3 are obviously sequels.

I recommend you to read this before starting the first game as well, it includes a lot of tips that will hopefully help you enjoy the game much more.

Also, please keep in mind that Nintendo recently released EarthBound for the Wii U’s virtual console. So if you own the console you might want to support the games and actually buy it instead of emulating it, but that’s up to you.

P.S.: If you’re already a fan of the series, please reblog this so more people can see it and get into these games.

I’ll never stop insisting on how everyone needs to play these games, and how you’ll never look at game narratives in the same way after them. With that said, it’s about time I begin Earthbound.

Samus’s official amiibo toy has the figure of a ballet dancer.
I wonder if it’ll be used in an upcoming Metroid x Barbie Girls’ Fun crossover.

Gymnast, actually. Samus has been modeled after a gymnast. She has been one for excellent posture.
So… stop it with the sexism call-outs where it does not belong.

I’m not so sure it doesn’t belong, to be honest. I’m not calling this out just to have a self-righteous boost, it’s something you’d be really hard-pressed to deny.

Nintendo has lately made Samus a really delicate and sexually appealing character, diverting attention away from her warrior strength towards her femininity to cater to the public. What will young women who found in Samus a strong and courageous female role model think? I used to really look up to her character too, but I’m not so sure now…
That’s the problem I have with Smash Bros. sometimes. It’s great fun with friends, and well put together, but sometimes they really damage the meaning of some characters to appeal to the consumer, as they did with the Mother series being about “child adventure”.
