Atari to release LGBT Mobile game!

atari.pridefest.game

Well here’s a thing I never even knew was in the works. Gaming giant Atari is getting ready to launch a specific LGBT themed mobile game! It’s called PRIDEFEST, a city-building game much like that of Roller Coaster Tycoon, but with LGBT peoples.

The Engadget article I found this fantastic news in, puts a lot of stress on the buying power of the LGBT community ($830 billion in the US) and strongly pushes the idea PRIDEFEST is just pandering to the community.

Vikings Special Teams Coach suspended, report still nowhere to be found.

Vikings Special Teams Coach Mike PrieferWe have a small update since the last time we spoke of Kluwe and the Vikings. Vikings Special Teams Coach Mike Priefer, (the one who spoke of putting all gay people on an island and “nuking it until it glows.”) has been suspended for three games, and made to donate $100,000 to LGBT organizations by the Vikings organization.

Priefer also released a statement apologizing for what he said:

I owe an apology to many people – the Wilf family, the Minnesota Vikings organization and fans, my family, the LGBT community, Chris Kluwe and anyone else that I offended with my insensitive remark. I regret what has occurred and what I said. I am extremely sorry but I will learn from this situation and will work on educating others to create more tolerance and respect.

Tuesday Beer Review: Alphadelic IPA from Hop Valley Brewing Co.

hop.valley.smal.2

This his a hip-hoppy sunofab*tch beer that does not hold back. Mike and I were hiking Mt. Shasta (yes the actual mountain) and on the drive back pulled into a little grocery store to use the restroom while still in Northern California. Of course we did the right thing and patronized the store, buying this uber delicious 6 pack of Alphadelic IPA from Hop Valley.

This is not a beer to be trifled with. This is my first time having a brew hailing from the great Pacific Northwest city of Eugene, Oregon, and if this is what most of their craft brews are like, it is imperative I plan an excursion to drink and be merry!
