Just in case you thought hardware hackers aren’t completely insane, here’s a video of some Australians who hacked an ATM to play Doom.

Got a copy of The Wonderful 101 today. It’s a very charming game that makes it easy to overlook it’s flaws. And it has many flaws, though I’ve only played a few missions so far, maybe I’ll get used to some of the annoying things?

I WASN’T EVEN PAYING ATTENTION AND WHEN I WATCHED THE REPLAY I HAD TO.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT

You stared death in the face and didn’t even notice.

That is stone cold.

Everyone whines about people spending 50 dollars on a kickstarter because “that money could have gone to CHARITY you know” but I’m watching a TV show about expensive houses and some dude spent 50,000 bucks on a 1500 pound bathtub that pours in from the ceiling and I don’t hear anybody bitching about that shit

I’m repeatedly flabbergasted at how many people will see an opinion article on Polygon that says things like “Hey maybe we shouldn’t rely on poorly-portrayed mental illness so much” or “y’know it’s okay to not like how violent games are” and respond to them with “FUCK YOU OHHHH TYPICAL POLYGON HERE COMES THE PC POLICE WHATS WRONG WITH JUST PLAYING GAMES” like

Nobody is gonna come and take your games away because we think more critically about what we make and what we consume.

Just because you think of them as “just games” doesn’t mean that we can’t look at them and examine how we can improve them and do more interesting and amazing things with them.

You don’t care about this stuff, fine. But don’t come in and shit on this like everyone agrees with you. You’re not some vanguard for video game purity. You’re not making some amazing, argument-breaking point when you act like everyone should just “calm down” and “play some games”. You’re just an asshole.
