If you are big in the gaming scene you’ve probably heard as of late they were the ones developing the game Dragonball FighterZ and the like.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 70: Another Series Overview? Mega Man, Addressing Male Disposability and Dehumanization 30 Years and Counting!

Alright, this time around I’m going back to this particular article series’ roots again by jumping on top of something very topical for this past week. I’m going straight back into video game lore. On December 4th on the official Twitch channel for Capcom, CapcomUnity, they did a livestream announcing the future of the Mega Man series with Mega Man 11 – the first new title in the series in 7 years (game collections and cameos don’t count).…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 69: Fucked if We Do, Fucked if We Don’t? Did We Ever Really Have Net Neutrality?

This one may be a little controversial but in the current climate is very very important when looking into the future of the Men’s Rights Movement, Independent Content Creation, and human interaction overall. What I am doing this time around is I’m going to look back on the past two decades of easily accessed consumer level internet and see whether or not this decision of Ajit Pai’s is really getting rid of Net Neutrality or is he simply clearing away a fascimilie of Net Neutrality that was put in place by corporations that wanted a leg up on other corporations so they could more easily shit on us plebs.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 66: Not Everything is connected to the Alt Right!

This time around I’m actually having difficulty pinning down a specific point of content. There were so many crazy things from this past week to talk about. However I did notice an overlying theme – the dreaded “Alt-Right”.  Whether we are talking about NBC’s delusions about #GamerGate and Discord which Alison has talked about here and I’ve figured out the reasons for their fantasies here.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 65: Hello Uncyclopedia! Encyclopedia Dramatica’s Retarded Cousin!

Like I had stated last week I got a request to debunk Uncyclopedia’s article on paganism. I for a bit considered not touching it because it is supposed to be a parody wikia but then I thought for a moment that the best comedy needs a basis in reality.…

Breaking the Narrative Episode 64: Returning to the Basics! A Review of Metroid: Samus Returns!
