Okay, Tumblr, let’s make this go viral. You all know that representation in the media is desperately needed, and this game is delivering what many of the big-name games haven’t. Pumpkin Online is made by a development team headed by an African-American woman and they’re aiming to make this game as inclusive and friendly as possible. This is a farming/romance sim mixed up with an adventure MMORPG and made incredibly diverse.

You want to play a non-binary character? You got it! You want a range of races in your NPC neighbors? Done! Clothing choices and body features not restricted by gender? It’s in there! Relationships in no way affected by gender or lack of gender? Yes, that too!

Let’s get this thing going viral and help promote the Kickstarter (link in the article) so that everyone gets the chance to play the character they want to play. Reblog buttons, do your thing!

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO YOU GUYYYYSSSSSSSSSSSS

Havest Moon-esque MMO where you can be any gender (or lack thereof) or race and the game doesn’t turn your f/f relationship into a bullshit “friendship” instead of a marriage?

THIS IS LITERALLY EVERYTHING I HAVE EVER WANTED OUT OF A VIDEO GAME

WOAH WOAH I NEED THIS

WE ALL NEED THIS

Hello and welcome to my new followers!

I’m guessing most of you came from the Dishonored reference dumps, though there might be a few Thief or anime fans in the mix too. I’m glad to have you all, though I really do suggest checking a page or two back on my blog to make sure you really want to be here. 

Stuff I post: video games I like, from visual novels to MMOs (found under my gaming tag); gifs and edits; thoughts about books and quotes (I’m a huge Discworld fan); frequent anime gifs and fanart; pictures of cute stuff and animals; funny shit other people reblogged; pretty dresses; personal text posts (I also swear a lot); pictures of my cats; blogging about my D&D group. I tag for nsfw, spoilers, and common phobias. If there’s something you specifically need blacklisted, drop me an ask. This is a secondary blog, so if I follow you back it’ll be under the username gaddings.

If there’s anything else you’d like to know, my about me page is here, and my current fandom list is here. My ask box is always open, anon is always on, and I really enjoy chatting with you guys.

Welcome, I hope you enjoy your stay. :3

ArospAce Home | The fandom community for aces and aros 

defira85:

So guess who got a little enthusiastic this evening and decided to put together an ace and aro forum? 

I’d like to welcome everyone to ArospAce (credit for the name and the current logo go to Balverine), a forum based community for people on the asexual and aromantic spectrums to come together and share resources, support and headcanons :)

All fandoms are welcome, and there’s no restrictions on where you fall on the spectrum- even if you’re simply curious and questioning your orientation, we’d like to offer you the chance to join our community and discover a little bit more about yourself.

Square Enix announce Life is Strange - Respawn Ninja

THE UP SERIES: It follows the lives of 14 children through their lives interviewing them every seven years. It’s amazing to see how they change and where they go. It shows that personality traits do not tend to be very static. Being introverted at 18 doesn’t determine how you’ll be at 32. A girl on there around 20 was totally against having a family and was very cynical about relationships and marriage. Next interview, she was happily wed with children. I link you to 7 UP, which is the first documentary in the series. 
QUEEN OF VERSAILLES:If you have any interest in the SUPER RICH of America and how absolutely delusional they can be, then this documentary will blow your mind. It’s a great window into the lives of people who literally have everything a person could need. Even when they loose everything, they’re entirely incapable of believing that they’re a normal citizen.
THE ACT OF KILLING: One review describes it as: “This is the most gut-wrenching film I’ve ever seen. It actually makes you understand the nature and true face of evil, and it’s terrifying because it’s so, so normal. After watching it you know that in some other life, you could be him.”
BABIES: It shows the different ways, different cultures raise their children. It shows how different but similar we all are at the end. They documentary follows 4 different babies, from Mongalia, to Tokyo, to Namibia and then the U.S
INSIDE NORTH KOREA: An eye-opening film that shows you the truth about a hidden country 
TOUCHING THE VOID: A documentary about two mountain climbers who have an accident on their way back. As one review described it: “Better than any fictional suspense film. Just unreal. You know throughout that the two climbers lived because you’re sitting there watching them narrate, but at times you just can’t believe it.”
THE COVE: A 2009 documentary film that analyzes and questions dolphin hunting practices in Japan. One review described it as “an impeccably crafted, suspenseful expose of the covert slaughter of dolphins in Japan.”
THIS IS WHAT WINNING LOOKS LIKE: The documentary follows U.S. Marines as they train Afghan security forces, showing their ineptitude, drug abuse, sexual misconduct, and corruption as well as the reduced role of US Marines due to the troop withdrawal.
BBC PLANET EARTH (All 11 Episodes): An HD exploration of our world. You’ll just love everything about this, trust me. 
JESUS CAMP: About a Christian summer camp, where children spend their summers being taught that they have “prophetic gifts” and can “take back America for Christ”. This documentary led to the shut down of this summer camp.

DISHONORED Marathon! Ultimate Difficulty mod, whole game + both DLCs 

yumemirai:

Okay, it’s time to finally do something I’ve wanted to do for ages.  I got no plans, no business for the rest of the weekend, mainly.  I got snacks and soda.  It’s time to play Dishonored, the whole thing, beginning to end and beyond…  This is an experience I’ve been wanting for a while.
