Age of Ascent (AoA) is a great looking new space-based sandbox MMO, that is so big, that they’re planning on breaking EVE Online’s world record (4070 concurrent pilots fighting) by staging the largest PvP battle ever seen.
As if that wasn’t enough, they’re planning on beating EVE Online’s record with the battle taking place in a single, continuous unsharded battlezone, all in real time (EVE uses time dilation).  If Age of Ascent manages to pull it off, this will be the MMO equivalent of beating an opponent blindfolded, with your arms tied behind your back, while balancing a tea-cup on your head.

You realize a lot of people just don't want to play as a female right? Growing up we're basically shown most leads in action/fantasy films to be male it's natural that people want to play as that. If there is a problem it goes far beyond videogames. I find it pretty insulting that I would be considered misogynistic just because I want to play as the character I can relate to more.

patrickklepek:

The irony here is hard to measure. No one would blame you for wanting to play as a character you can relate to. Having empathy is realizing the vast majority of media—games, movies, etc.—are created to satisfy and monetize your desire for self-realization at the expense of many, many other groups. 

Let me try to rephrase your comment for you.

"You realize a lot of people just don’t want to play as a male right? Growing up we’re basically shown most leads in action/fantasy films to be male but it’s natural that people want to play as a character like themselves. If there is a problem it goes far beyond videogames. I find it pretty insulting that I would be told I’m calling for censorship just because I want to play as the character I can relate to more."

In the audio commentaries for the series DVD collection, it is mentioned that there is a subplot for Inara which was not developed in the series or the film. The producers mention foreshadowing events that hinted at this plot. During a panel at 2008’s DragonCon, Morena Baccarin confirmed that Inara was indeed dying of a terminal illness.

I know everyone loved the Lance battle because of Venomoth, but can we talk about how well we navigated this hallway?

Hello, I am tef. I am available for hire.

If anyone is looking for a no-good, terrible programmer, I will be available for work soon. I like working on algorithms and data structures, so i’m better at writing code for machines to speak to each other, than user-facing code.

I’ve come to the end of my time at Code Club, as I managed to solve more problems than I caused. We’re hiring someone to take on the web development role, and soon we’ll be hiring people write more projects too.

You’ll note by my spartan CV that I’m not the best fit for front end heavy work, so I’ve opted to take a step back from Code Club to let someone else lead the way forward. It’s been awfully fun at Code Club, and I will miss it.

I am excited to find out what’s next for me, and for Code Club too. I still deeply care about education, but it’s not the only thing I want to change.

Hey at least that site is cross-browser consistent and fully responsive ;)
