Had to look her up, but...

"If you had a card designed after you, what would it do?

Hafu — An 8 Mana 1/1 with Battlecry: Pick any card in your opponent's deck and play it. >: )"

That's so evil! Love it >:D

(Of course it would never be made because it would give you the advantage of being able to view your opponents entire deck, but still, I love copying/stealing cards :D )

Edit: And she has an army of penguins! That's so cute 0_0

Have Blizzard come out with a statement on this yet? I get that it's an independent organization, but it would be nice for them to speak out about this kind of shit.

I don't think they have, but I guess they will release a statement soon now that the news is kinda going viral.

And like Dice, I don't understand why this needs to be so complicated. It's a cardgame. You can reach a high level of play as long as you got a decent brain, atleast one working eye and one hand with a functional finger to click things with. What does gender have to do with that? Japanese cartoons about children's cardgames are more progressive than this...

Is there anything preventing them from just... you know... not do what they say?
I mean, what can they do?

Worst case a woman wins the Finnish tournament, but isn't allowed to go on to the international matches Which could be kinda bad for the Finnish organisation since money is involved, but on the other hand, wouldn't a good reputation be worth more?

(BTW I competed in a women's Tetris competition once at an animecon. Felt really bad about it afterwards, because it wasn't so much as a competition for women as it was a one for 'girlfriends of gamers who kinda know how to hold a controller and want to play a game, too, but not one of those violent ones, maybe some nice puzzle game or something'. I absolutely crushed the other players. Finals were over in less than a minute. So, if I were a professional Hearthstone player, I'd want to compete with the best, no matter what their gender is. If I weren't competing against men and remained in a special little league (that doesn't even exist!), I doubt I would be taken very seriously as a professional gamer.)

Finnish Hearthstone Tournament Prohibits Women From Competing

"IeSF is a global organization based in South Korea with the aim to promote e-sports as a "true sport." By doing so, it divides tournaments into male and female competitions."

That's just sad, both the Sputh-Korean organisation behind that world championship and organisation in Finland playing along like there is nothing they can do about it.

Yeah, some of those are in bad taste :/

The Netherlands is looking good, though. Cool robot/cyborg girl and a robot lion? Awesome!

But eh, what are those things under its tail? Looks like balls... o_o

Now that you mention it, football (eh, the type were talking about here) teams tend to have names that are either awesome or just plain boring and unimaginative. For instance, one of the (really shitty) local clubs is named after Pax, the minor Roman goddess of peace. A good name for a club that's just in it for the fun. On the other hand there are countless (paid!) clubs that are named something like FC *insert name of city here*. Blah.

My final purchases are The Night of the Rabbit and I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream. The first one had been on my wishlist for some time and it was 66% off this sale. No daily, but I feel the price I paid is more than fair. The second had been on my list since both a friend and Extra Credits recommended it. 50% off isn't spectacular, but the game was only 6 to begin with, so what the heck...

In the end I got 8 games for slightly less than 33. I'm happy with my haul. Should be enough to keep me occupied until the winter sales :D

I heard some old folks daydreaming aloud about the final match being between the Netherlands and Germany. I guess they're still sour about 1974 XD
38  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Steam Sale - Crits Wallet for 4.99 Damage on: June 28, 2014, 02:41:06 AM
And 50% off was such a good discount too for a game that less than 6 months old... :(

Maybe the people who wanted it already got it and the rest are waiting for 75% off?

Apparently a bunch of kids keyed my uncle's van and covered it in profanity. Detail: my uncle is in wheelchair (paralysed from the waist down (he's also bald, so instant Professor X cosplay all year round :D)) and that van was modified so he could drive it himself. It's very important to him, because much of his mobility depends on it.

And if rumours are correct, their neighbour's classic yellow Fiat 500 also fell victim to the same scratchers. Who would key a cute little car like that? D: And who would vandalise a disabled person's van for that matter... Seriously. Was it something like: Hey, those cars stand out! Let's ruin them, that'll teach the owners for being different!

Faith in humanity... not looking all that great today.

I'm so sorry to hear that Clueless and I agree with Dice: vent all you want/need, we'll listen! Well, read, actually, but you know what I mean :)

May I ask if you heard about treatment yet? For both you mum and the pooch?

It'll be released on September the 26th... I'll consider it Koei's birthday present to me :D

And I highly doubt that. That would be the easy way out and it wouldn't be anything special. It'd be something like the Ys installments with multiple playable characters. Nintendo isn't exactly the type of company that's a fan of the easy way.

(Not that there wouldn't be an easy way of designing two dungeon variations. All you'd have to do is confine puzzles to one room and only make a second version of the bigger puzzle rooms. Bosses could be given more health and stronger attacks.)
43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Zelda for the Wii U on: June 25, 2014, 03:46:23 AM
I little co-op may not be a bad thing. I really liked Four Swords so if they can take a bit of that and add it to the new game, I probably wouldn't mind. It'd be  very difficult to design a game that is fun for both one or two gamers, though. I wouldn't want to be a player two that can't do anything but assist during battles. I'd want to help with the puzzle solving, too, you know? But to make a game with puzzles suitable for co-op, you need to design those puzzles for co-op. It could mean having two sets of dungeons: one for singleplayer, one of co-op.

That was a nice Game Dev Tycoon run. In the end my company became most famous for its RPGs, especially the Time and Stories of... series. Time's End sold nearly 20 million copies. We took some risks here and there and it was mostly the crazy ones that paid off: the press loved Revenge, a dark superhero action adventure. Zombieville, our first attempt at developing for phones and tablets, was an utter failure. Apparently users just weren't ready for our casual zombie-filled simulation game (you build a fortresslike town to survive the zombie apocalypse - that's cool, right?). On the other hand, the post-apocalyptic Goddess Incarnate RPG series was pretty much a culthit. Final Incarnation especially was very well recieved despite being made on a fairly small budget and not having much marketing behind it.

I don't really get or care about the card system either, but I guess I can understand some people like to collect them.

As for me, I stayed under €10 so far during this sale, so I'm pretty happy. Just bought Game Dev Tycoon and played it for a while. Nearly went bankrupt in the fourth year, but my epic sci-fi RPG Sea of Stars got excellent reviews (8-9) and its sequel Sea of Star II is considered a classic in my little universe. It got two 10s! :D
