Google TVs And Sexist Geeks

Google TVs And Sexist Geeks

It’s time for the Pornening, the Porninization, the Pornifery. It’s time for Nerd Porn. This time, we’re going to be digging into some Google TVs that have games in the Cloud that you can play, and some dickwad goes on a misogynistic rant that we’ve been calling him out on. (Last one: The Pornithoptrix.)

A new app popped up today for those who own LG Smart TV owners, or at least those who have the G2 sets: OnLive’s cloud streaming gaming app, which was delivered over-the-air today. Those who have LG Smart TVs will be the first to get Google TV’s latest update, so as to probably reward your silly idea to early adopt a completely new technological advancement.

Once you’ve purchased OnLive’s controller, you’ll be able to actually play the games on your TV. A number of console and PC triple-A titles are available on the OnLive service, though you probably won’t have brand-new games on that list. LA Noire is available for play, but Red Dead Redemption is not. Assassin’s Creed up to Revelations is available, but not the latest iteration.

Still, with no console, and played completely from cloud streaming, that’s pretty impressive, provided the cloud streaming won’t have delayed responses to your controller.

And in our second story, which we’ve already mentioned earlier, comic artist Tony Harris went on a rampage against some female cosplayers he had deemed not “real” nerds. And this is a snippet of what he wrote, verbatim:

You are willing to become almost completely Naked in public, and yer either skinny( Well, some or most of you, THINK you are ) or you have Big Boobies. Notice I didnt say GREAT Boobies? You are what I refer to as “CON-HOT”.

He goes on for a couple thousand words, and I just don’t have the time. Meg discusses it a bit here.

Anyway, Tony Harris is a dickbag (a word I seem to be wanting to use a bunch today) who wants to purge the “fake nerds” from the “real nerds,” and declares that a convention is his work space while you “Cos’play’.”

Tony, Tony, Tony. The convention is not your fucking office. Your office is your office. Conventions are a product of fans’ willingness to show up. They pay to get in there. You make money, yes, but that foot traffic you’re complaining about? Fans did that. By paying to show up. And for some of those cosplayers, they’re working, too. They’re making money.

And if they’re not fans of what they’re wearing? Screw ‘em, who cares? Also, stop ReTweeting people who agree with you. It looks desperate. We are not impressed.

Question: Seriously, did all this deserve a long-winded rant? I already feel like windbag just with how much I personally wrote on this.
