Lack of Diversity in Games Like ‘Daily Racism’ for Minority Players, Says Study - http://jstationx.com/2018/02/02/lack-of-diversity-in-games-daily-racism/
The results of this study are astonishing 😮
I have an open position on my team (just me & my manager) at work (Under Armour) for a senior software engineer. Our job description is so bad, though. It doesn't accurately reflect what working here is like or what I'd say my team is looking for. I'mma figure out who to talk to about making it better.
BUT: If you live in Austin and have questions about what we do and how we do it, please feel free to hit me up on here. Boosts welcome. I promise it's welcoming, not bro-ey; collaborative, not competitive; and that work/life balance is highly valued. It's a really great place to work and I'd really, REALLY like to not have a funnel full of cishet white dudes.
I started the day like 'bloop' but it actually ended up being pretty productive after all, can I get a he'll yeah
BioWare RPG Anthem Officially Delayed to 2019 - http://jstationx.com/2018/02/01/bioware-anthem-delay-2019/
The delayed RPG promises exploration, combat with monsters, co-op gameplay, character customization, and more.
seriously y'all, save some creative talent for the rest of us 😅
Today I want to show you my last idea. It is JUNICORN.
A year ago I started sewing. First small things like a pencil case, wallet, clutch... and then simple cloths. Now I start to learn more complicated things (cloths). And that's why I wanted to put an identifier to my creations like a trademark.
@ekaitz_zarraga helped me in the design of the logo. (Thanks love).
The origin of the name is very special for me. Our lovely niece's name is June (it is a basque name). She loves unicorns, so the name is something composed with the two things. You can view it in the logo, the "J" is a letter and looks like a unicorn 🦄 . I love her, so that's why I decided to base on her.
Here the pictures.
Thanks, and good night to everyone.

"League of Legends hints that Fiora is the game's next LGBTQ character by adding some interesting voice interactions during the Swain rework update."

If you're making a game that fits that description please @ me! I cannot guarantee that your game will be featured but I would love to hear about it :)
