Wow a random person with two X chromosomes and nothing worthwhile to say likes a video game.  Let's all celebrate this.  BACK TO GRINDING!

Felicia Day is the creator of The Guild, a funny TV show about gamers.  Her talents go way beyond having a specific chromosomal arrangement.

Yeah man. Big fan of Felicia day. She's probably not the vacuous tool bag that, say, Snookie or the Kardashians play on TV.

Here's the full endorsement:

"Friendly game recc: Randomly got Tales of Maj'Eyal from Steam and really enjoying it! There are tons of rogue-like games out there now that I get bored with quickly, but this one has amazing class customization and loot. Hard, but not frustrating, in-depth and RPG elements are super fun. You unlock classes and races as you level, so even if you die a lot there's more fun to be had replaying. Kinda like Dungeons of Dredmore, if you played that?

You can download it for free, and it's open source on their website, which is cool too. But grab it off Steam or donate on the website if you can, it's nice to support the devs! BACK TO GRINDING!"

In case you didn't know: nearly half of all "gamers" are female. Felicia has (or at least had) several maxed out WOW characters, wrote The Guild, is a producer for several YouTube shows on board games and video games, has mentioned her childhood playing video games in arcades and at home on the Amiga and NES, and spends a lot of time introducing others to games and gaming in general.

I think praising TOME and roguelikes is something worth saying.

Do you have a serious objection to her trying to help the roguelike community or is it a knee-jerk reaction to someone you know nothing about?

I'm not a big fan. IMO she just overacts a generic not-unattractive geek girl role in everything.

However, on the positive side, she is very popular and her endorsement can only be good for both TOME and roguelikes.  So good for her.

I never said anything about Felicia Day being fake.

Her "praise" for roguelikes was that they're boring until they get unlocks and grinding like all those other genres that have already been ruined.  I object to that.  I'd rather roguelikes receive no exposure at all than get that kind of praise.

Gamer of some renown likes a game and publicly endorses it.

"Bitch you ain't in the cool club."

Ha!

WoW is not a game, it more like a doll simulator where you get to dress your characters. That's why girls mostly like it, because their characters look fab.

Girl gamers are more like that, they play WoW, minecraft and other non-games, then set up social media to get views, likes and advertising options. (read: money). They get money just by being beautiful girls, sort of like social media models.

Tome getting media coverage means nothing to roguelikes. It's like.. I don't even know how to describe this bullshit in words. I think women try to ruin even games from us. Well they are not going to succeed if I can do something about it and I will. My roguelikes will be ridiculously esoteric with tons of keyboard commands and ancient UI. And crappy graphics. And no sound or music. Nothing that can possibly be advertised.

The kind of girl "gamers" I'm talking about are those who just have to add that GIRL in gamer and point it out. How often do you hear us say we are boy gamers (that sounds a bit gay..).

Here's Wil Wheaton recommending Dreadmor: https://twitter.com/wilw/status/409767483084525568

I trust you guys will shower him with an equal level of disapproval?
