PostSubject: great reads for you   Wed 01 Jul 2009, 05:46

i came through to an article about the "last stand"
i know the feeling so much.... how we always try our best to survive the bunnies ^_^
how i survived against the chickens for an hour ^_^

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/issues/issue_207/6198-The-Glory-of-the-Last-Stand

next is the article i often used it's title: Girlz don't exist on teh interweb
about how girls are often annoyed by jerks who don't believe that the other sex can like their games, therefore there can not be girls on the internet... so any girl playing their game do not exist...

That's some good reading. Specially the second one. I know a few girls on the intrawebz and I know bout' the problems they're facing.

Great articles. The first one describes exactly how I want mah games to be (you'll see that in DotD once we get closer to the grande finale .p).

The second is a perfect example of the stupid, premature mass of the interwebz.

I remember the days when I played Silkroad (a MMORPG, similar to WoW, but free and less stupid). I've had two friends there and we played together A LOT. One of them was a girl, one a guy.
We got our own guild up running and recruited some (male) members.
One day we got a new promising recruit who turned out to be a girl and right away I got a whisper from my friend telling me to be careful that (s)he might be a fake and only tries to chip some items by saying that she's a girl.. well, in the end I can't recall that she ever asked for anything without paying it back and I think she was got into the Top5 of our most active members.

I can't understand all the ruckus about that.. I can't understand all the people going "PIC PLOXX" and I can't understand why it's even possible to get stuff for free just because you say you're a girl..

Those where great articles! And i'm ashamed to be one of those guys who believe girls don't exist on the intarweb >.> maybe this could change how i treat female gamers.

it's also an example of how people react with Kevweird....
i can say i got at least 10 whispers in-game asking if "it" was a girl....
every single one of them, i replied with the article's name "there is no girls on teh interwebs"
and then i try to explain to them: "what the hell will it change if it's a girl?"
a DOTD player is someone who plays DOTD and enjoys it... being a girl or a boy is totally irrevelant... and no matter how hard you try, you can't have sex on the internet....

it's also a lot like the age and location of someone.... age doesn't matter, it only matters that you are mature enough to be somehow polite to other people.... and location only matters if you lag...

therefore, when i'm asked A/S/L, i answer:
old enough/never enough/in front of my computer

Great reads. I'm rather a fan of the first article now ... Just something about making that last stand I can never get enough of. Anymore I can't help but just laugh that people still think "there is no girls on teh interwebs"

You know what "cyber sex" and " aprosexia" have in common?
They both contain the word sex, but don't have much to do with it.
Same with phone sex >.<

Unless you got a webcam running you couldn't even be sure whether it's a guy or a girl (see article for further elaboration) Very Happy

yeah i did.... tell me: can you make babies while having cybersex?
do you feel your partner's touch when you cyber?
it's nothing more than pleasuring yourself while chatting.... so would you consider browsing for porn sex?

I forgot to replay in this thread, but I now look at Kevweird different now, to treat her better than harrass her Razz Lol

Nah just kidding I treat everyone like that Kev. I am nice to everyone and I joke alot with you sexy young people.

Cybersex is gay, and by the way you can get interenet aids on it...

Being that said... Most people consider Lesbians being gay, I don't know why but people still use the word for men and women..

And I meant aids as in viruses, I was thinking about adding "aka viruses" but that wouldn't be too funny would it? PLOX!

I must play the wrong games...or with the wrong persons. I played with many girls (esp, in Guildwars and in warcraft 3 (I even got friends with some of them)) and never made that exp..

You know, zombies can be stopped with axe blows to the head, chainsaw attacks to the neck, shotgun blasts to the face, and stakes driven through their chests.
The interesting thing is that all of these methods work on normal people, so there`s no need to learn a new set of skills.

Yea, you're probably playing with all the polite and liberal scumbags out there.
Playing with brain damaged monkeys is the real deal!

Yes much to laugh about in this thred..

But in saying that.. wen u think about it.. Who actually knows if there isnt many girls in the "gameing net".. Well who is to say that there is thousand or millions of them and they are pretending to be guys?? I mean imo i dont really care whether u r Male or Female.. But i do care in playing games and having a good time in doing so.. so i say to everyone give them a go it doesnt matter about ur sex.. as long as u can play a video game.

this might sound kinda bad but honestly who gives a **** lol

You guys who say its immature to be like "THERE ARE NO GIRLS" cant take a joke and the guys who actually believe it have no Brain cells lol theres nothing wrong with saying it as long as you dont think its true hahaha cause I mean.. doesnt that apply to almost 60% of what we normally talk about in the first place.. if not more?

it's not htat they pretend that they are men... it's that they don't say that they are women...

it is assumed that everybody is male in games unless stated otherwise.... and if you don'T state that you're a women, you're not saying you're a man... people just assumed that you're a man
