@Krita she's up for it! Want me to message you her email, or..?

@krita ooh, I'll ask her when she gets home from school. She sits right on that backslash (she's 13 next month) so she might be too shy, haha

@krita Thank you* for being here! And thank you* for giving my daughter an accessible way to grow her art!

* I demand the person in charge of this account forward my thanks to each and every contributing member to Krita :P

@caraellison Games (and anime, natch) gives a huuuuuuge pass to Japan because "cultural differences, man" but as I age it's getting as tired as I am.

At the same time I find myself sliding into the comfortable hole of Well This Is Entertainment Media And Obviously These Things Are Not Okay In Real Life(tm) but acknowledge my privilege in being able to be so lazy and spineless.

@noelle I work in the meat department, and previously, the deli. I have a neverending supply of double entendres.

Ask me about my 10lb chub.

As I was leaving for work my doorknob fell off and I didn’t have time to stop and fix it.

So I have that going for me.

@docky Hey, great thread on the birdsite about the apparent lack of Unity YouTube tutorials by women (responding here rather than there because I don't have the energy for handling mentions right now)

Depressingly expected responses though from people (men) who don't understand that representation MATTERS and that even though I don't think video is the best way to teach gamedev, YouTube is absolutely the best way to reach girls curious about.. well anything.

@kellycrow *pauses momentarily for reflection* well okay "amazing" might be A Bit Much but still. P. cool.

@kellycrow holy shit I didn't know this was possible! This is amazing!

(That was GIFed from this vid by the amazing Linsey Pollak )

Clam Blitz makes a better masturbation euphemism than an enjoyable game mode.

@caraellison Whatever you do, don't sweep back the bed sheet. I've seen this movie.

Getting a bit misty-eyed remembering how good Metal Gear Solid used to be. Never thought I'd be too bored to finish one.

So I've been saying "Man, I love the idea and world and aesthetic of Splatoon but the game itself doesn't sound very appealing" for three years but I just bought Splatoon 2 and I love it and why didn't anyone tell me the matches are so short?! It makes a world of difference in my enjoyment.

Still want to play a single player actiona adventure game in that world though, something more in-depth than what they added to Splatoon 2.
