  • 'Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League' Character Artist Confirms Industry Bias Against Attractive Female Characters
  • Does it? Because we're still solidly on the side of the vast majority of women in games being attractive, even in the games where the examples come from.

  • 'Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League' Character Artist Confirms Industry Bias Against Attractive Female Characters
  • Nothing was confirmed other than two artists saying they've had push backs on their models. Also, just play a game. There's plenty of attractive women in games. Sorry if not literally every single woman looks like a supermodel anymore.

    Also odd that the title directly contradicts itself by saying it's specifically black women, in their experience, which would be an entirely different issue.

    Also odd that the article mentions The Last of Us Pt 2. That game has a lot of conventionally attractive women. I assume they're talking about one character in particular. And she wasn't made less attractive, she's just a butchy woman. That's pretty core to her character.

    Odd that they didn't mention the new Fable which is where I've heard the most whining. Then again I've heard whining from Stellar Blade of all games.

    Who is the Batman character they're complaining about anyways? Is it Harley? Wtf are they getting at with that pic?

    Today's was fun. I definitely thought I had it on my fourth word.

  • A surprising winner in the Supreme Court gun ruling: Hunter Biden
  • Threat of violence and in response to a risk of violence are potentially two different things.

    Also, I'm not pro guns. But buying a gun for protection is a huge reason why people support gun ownership.

  • Minecraft for PlayStation 5
  • Hopefully it will get PSVR2 support.

  • "He couldn't even remember me": Trump has "severe memory issues," says author who interviewed him
  • I have questioned Trump's cognitive abilities. He's definitely declined mentally over the last 30 years.

    But you're absolutely right on this. These people meet hundreds or thousands of people daily and do lots of interviews. It's not surprising at all.

  • 'FANTASTIC FOUR' will start shooting from August 2nd, 2024 in London, UK.
  • My problem with Ant Man 3 was everything wrong with The Marvels but much worse. Individual scenes were fine, but they felt disconnected either plot wise, thematically, or emotionally. Kang felt incompetent, regardless of the plot reasons why he was underpowered. And they could have done just about anything else with MODOK and it would have been better.

    Jonathan Majors stole every scene he was in. It felt like it was him vs the writing.

  • 'FANTASTIC FOUR' will start shooting from August 2nd, 2024 in London, UK.
  • Thor 4?

    Ant-Man 3, if you count that. I wouldn't call it a tip tier property. But they were clearly trying to use it as a launching point for the next phase.

    Today's was a fun one!

  • ‘Anti-Woke’ Water Makes a Splash at Conservative Conference
  • I hate to say it, but Dems should be trying to reclaim the word "freedom". It makes absolutely no sense for Cons to be attached to it so strongly. We need more freedom fries and liberty toast.

  • ‘Anti-Woke’ Water Makes a Splash at Conservative Conference
  • Ironic because freedom is also woke.

  • $843 million lawsuit against Valve already has its own website: "The Steam Claim" accuses the biggest store in PC gaming of "overcharging" players
  • Playstation and Xbox regularly put games on sale. And their base prices almost always go down over time. I assume Steam is more steep discounts. But you can absolutely get by without paying full price on consoles if you wait.

  • what are the new podcasts?

    %@&$Face turned into Regulation Podcast.

    FaceJam turned into 100% Eat.

    Both bought out their IPs. Any others? Supposedly ANMA will come back eventually in some form.

    Apparently there were two valid guesses on the last guess, and I picked the wrong one.

  • Americans Are Leaving Both Parties. This Colorado City Shows Why.
  • Call it defensive because it's protecting rights if you want. But one side is protecting rights.

    I'm voting for women's right to choose. I'm voting for pot legalization. I'm voting to fund Ukraine. I'm voting for gay rights. I'm voting for trans right to medical treatments. I'm voting to keep public education accurate. I'm voting to keep public libraries stocked. I'm voting for addressing climate change.

    And yes, I'm also voting against subverting democracy, corruption, erratic behavior, and domestic terrorism.

    90% of the "both sides" arguments are summed up by people who don't realize that open conservatives have been part of the party for a long time, including Joe Manchin.

    I don't know all of your views, but as a progressive, it feels like "both sides" people are keeping one foot firmly planted in the radical door.

  • DOOM: The Dark Ages | Official Trailer 1 (4K) | Coming 2025
  • I'm surprised they confirmed the PS5 in the trailer. Usually if a console is hosting the reveal trailer, they keep that ambiguous, but just won't put exclusive.

    Also, that would have been a huge deal about a year ago when everyone assumed these unrevealed games would be xbox exclusive.

  • Electronic Arts announces service shutdowns for older Battlefield, FIFA, NHL, and NBA titles
  • I don't play sports games. But I'm surprised that they don't shut them down as soon as the next entry comes out.

  • Reggie Bush gets Heisman Trophy back 14 years after forfeiting

    www.espn.com Heisman Trophy returned to Bush after 14 years

    The Heisman Trust is returning the Heisman Trophy to Reggie Bush and a replica to USC after the former running back had forfeited the award in 2010.

    Heisman Trophy returned to Bush after 14 years

    Reggie Bush has his 2005 Heisman Trophy back, as the Heisman Trust announced Wednesday the formal "reinstatement" of the trophy to Bush amid what it calls "enormous changes in the college football landscape."

    The Heisman Trust's decision comes after Bush forfeited his Heisman Trophy in 2010 in the wake of significant NCAA sanctions for USC, which included Bush receiving improper benefits during a Trojans career that spanned from 2003 to 2005.

    The House on Saturday passed a $95 billion aid package that includes two long-awaited bills with $60.8 billion of Ukraine aid and $26 billion in aid to Israel.

    The Ukraine bill, which passed with 311 votes in favor, 112 votes against, and one present, will now head to the Senate alongside the Israel aid bill and two others — one with aid for Taiwan and another that forces Tiktok's parent company to sell it.

    Are y'all watching UFL?

    I'm just curious if anyone is watching. It's been entertaining.

    I keep wondering if there's a potential spring camp/minor league future for the UFL. They could start popping up in college stadiums during the off season. Imagine if a college team, let's say the Arkansas Razorbacks, had a UFL team that focused on giving former Razorbacks a place to play if they don't go to the NFL. It could even be a way to entice middling players to go to that school. Now do that with any college that wants to participate.

    Bills trade star WR Stefon Diggs to Texans for 2025 draft pick

    www.espn.com Bills trade star WR Diggs to Texans for draft pick

    The Bills traded four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Stefon Diggs to the Texans for draft pick compensation.

    Bills trade star WR Diggs to Texans for draft pick

    The Bills received a 2025 second-round pick in exchange for Diggs, a 2024 sixth-round pick, and a 2025 fifth-round pick. The Texans acquired that pick from the Vikings when they traded their 2024 first-round pick to Minnesota last month.

    The Broncos announced Monday that they have informed quarterback Russell Wilson he will be released after the 2024 league year begins March 13 at 4 p.m. ET.

    Broncos to cut Wilson, take $85M dead money hit

    Wilson's release will end a disappointing chapter for both sides. The Broncos went 11-19 in Wilson's starts over two seasons and failed to make the playoffs.

    The Broncos signed Wilson to a five-year, $242.6 million deal after his arrival and will take an $85 million hit in dead money over the next two seasons because of the release.

    "Three U.S. C-130 cargo planes dropped 66 total bundles, equating to about 38,000 pork-free meals, into the territory on Saturday morning. The bundles were split between three planes, the official said."

    "The airdrop is expected to be the first of many announced by President Joe Biden on Friday. The aid will be coordinated with Jordan, which has also conducted airdrops to deliver food to Gaza."

    NFL Title Rankings Super Bowl Round, 2023 Season

    This is an objective, unbiased ranking in the same vein as the NFL Title Belt. As such, the number 1 ranked team will always be the same as the current NFL Title Belt holder.

    This is Super Bowl Week of the NFL Title Rankings of the 2023 season. See here for last week’s rankings.

    The Chiefs beat the 49ers to keep the NFL Title Belt and first ranking. The Chiefs will now hold the NFL Title Belt until their first loss of the 2024 season.

    With the Commanders losing to the Cowboys in the last game of the season, the Commanders will remain last place until their first win of the 2024 season.

Since the Ravens are locked into the 1st Seed, it is likely that they sit some of their starters and lose to the Steelers. If the Steelers win and miss the playoffs, the belt and first will be left out of the playoffs and cannot be won again until Week 1 of next year. The last time the belt missed the playoffs was 2021.

    With the Commanders losing to the 49ers, the Commanders will remain last place. The Commanders can move up next week when they play the Cowboys. The last 8 teams can end up in last place. The highest ranked team that can end up last is the Eagles, which would require all 7 teams behind them to upset their opponents.

    This ranking assumes that there are never any fluke games and all teams are appropriately ranked. If you beat a team that is higher ranked than you, you move ahead of them and they move down one spot. However, other teams can jump in front of teams that are higher ranked than you, moving you further down the rankings.
