The Legend of Zelda has always been Link’s story. Sure, Ganon might be raising a dark army, and Zelda may be the magical princess, but it’s a boy’s journey. Only he can wield the Master Sword, yada, yada, yada. Hyrule Warriors feels less about Link and more about, well, whoever you want.
Remember that SNL sketch from the '90s where Charlton Heston clammed up (pun intended) during the audiobook for Madonna' Sex and kept saying "vagina" instead of... you know, the actual word on the page? I imagine the mood was similar...Show More Summary
You may have been following our coverage of Sam Pepper, the YouTuber who uploaded videos of himself sexually harassing women and then tried to pass it off as a "social experiment," meant to raise awareness for violence against men. Though...Show More Summary
We seek the means to fight back the tears this brings to our eyes.
After having 99% of her screentime unceremoniously chopped from X-Men: Days of Future Past, Anna Paquin's Rogue will finally get to take part in some futureverse shenanigans when her scenes are included in a special "Rogue Cut" of the film, set to come out in 2015.
Thanks, Bad Lip Reading. Now I’m going to have “Carl Poppa (La Jiggy Jar Jar Doo)” running through my head all day long. Who knew Walkers make for such good backup singers?
Sam Pepper, the YouTuber who posts videos in which he sexually assaults women, has been under fire this week for, you know, sexually assaulting women on camera. Many women have also stepped forward to discuss their personal experiences with Pepper - and the YouTuber has subsequently been dropped from his network.
Nicole C Mendez is selling the yarn and pattern for this Bat'leth scarf on her Etsy shop. Great. Now I just need to learn how to knit things that aren't misshapen rectangles. (via Fashionably Geek)
In his Slate article "Misogyny is Not Human Nature," evolutionary anthropologist Erin Michael Johnson quotes a Reddit user's excuse for the recent nude picture leaks: "[there is] something inherent about human nature that makes this kind of thing inevitable.”
What makes Mario think it's OK to just punch his friends in the face? In fact, everything he does somehow needs to be violent, so let's revisit Smash Bros. with Dorkly and see if Nintendo's mascots can find a better way for them to have a smashing good time. (Sorry. Couldn't resist.)
Hey, want to support women in gaming while getting to play games as women? Then the latest weekly Humble Bundle is for you!

Confession: I have not watched My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. But I heard there was a convention called DerpyCon South in town, and with a name like that, I had to go. It turned out the be a brony convention, and I immediately decided that trial by fire was clearly the most logical way to introduce myself to the fandom.
There have been a few trailers out for Alien: Isolation, the new horror game that hits shelves on October 7th, and they've all been errifying. This latest in-game footage will get your heart pumping within seconds and, honestly, I don't know how I'm going to play this game other than with the brightness cranked way up on my screen at noon in my fully-lit apartment. Ack.
So you know how every once in a while Netflix likes to switch out the movies and TV shows it currently offers you on Instant Watch with different movies and TV shows? Well... the good news is we're getting Gilmore Girls! The bad news is that Rory and Lorelei's adorably fast-paced antics come at a terrible, terrible cost to humanity.
Is it wrong that I would rather watch a whole season of Tiny Detective than a single episode of Vince Vaughn in actual True Detective?
If you've made it to level 20 in Destiny, chances are you're stuck grinding for engrams in the hopes that you'll nab some sweet Legendary gear. Or you could just say screw it, and dance your way across the solar system like this one intrepid Guardian. Now that, friends, is truly legendary.
As you all know (because it's kind of a sticking point for us), Marvel has yet to make a movie within their cinematic universe that features a female hero at the helm. But back before they started making waves with Iron Man, there was serious talk of putting out a Black Widow film in 2004—and it involved the screenwriter for the first two X-Men films.
The rest of the Internet is calling "Bandolier" a parody of Sia's most recent music video, but I see it more as an homage. Seriously, the Leia cosplayer is acing every single one of those moves straight from the original, and don't even get me started on the Chewbacca-loving lyrics. This is some straight up art, is my point. Just try to look away, I dare you.
When Ray Bradbury passed away in 2012 at the age of 91, he left behind an impressive legacy--not just his beloved body of publish work, but an incredible collection of concept art and memorabilia honoring science fiction and fantasy that is now being auctioned off to the public.
