Monaco and Feminism, or, Give Me A Female Cleaner and A Smashburger and You Can Have All the Redheads You Want

April 19, 2013

ETA: Hi, random dude out looking for a feminist to say mean things to, who has discovered this almost two-year-old (as I write this) blog post!  If you read the comments, you will note that the guy who made the game wrote back to me.  If anyone gets to tell me to fuck off, it’s that guy, but he was really, really nice and gracious and we had a good conversation like reasonable people and that was awesome.

I think there is a chance that you, personally, are not terrible, but your hobby is shitty and I suggest taking the rest of the evening off and playing video games.  Video games are really fun!  Have you played Monaco yet?

I have eaten the plums that — wait, fuck, no

This is just to say that the name of this blog is one of those phrases you can sing to the tune of Camptown Ladies, and it took me over four years to notice that.

Carry on with your bad selves.  I am going to sleep now.

doo-dah, doo-dah

Spring Thing ’13 — Mostly Useless’s Witch’s Girl!

April 3, 2013

Okay, Polodna.  I don’t think you managed to play half of last year’s IF Comp games.  You still haven’t played Hoosegow.  You think you can put on your big boy pants and play three whole Spring Thing games, or do you need Mommy and Daddy to take care of the monsters driving motorcycles in your closet?

…I’m a big boy.
