Are They Or Aren't They?: Zangief

RED CYCLONE!
Look at this big guy!   Just look at him!  For those that don’t know, this is Zangief.  His interests are Mother Russia, Mohawks, and Wrestling Bears.  Speaking of “bears,” he seems to match that profile, does he not?  Zangief has been a Street Fighter mainstay since the classic Street Fighter II.  Being such a strong character, Zangief never backs down from a fight.  Even going all out against female characters such as Chun Li or Cammy.  Does that make him a misogynist?  Or could he possibly be hiding something else?

Are all gay guys healers?

That’s a common stereotype among gamers in MMORPG’s. In MMORPG’s there are usually 5 basic archetypes:

  1. The Warrior is up front, dealing damage and soaking up hits. These “tanks” need to keep “aggro” on them to distract incoming mobs of enemies from attacking the weaker people in the party.
  2. The Thief/Assasin hits fast and often but mostly evades any big damage. These characters often pile on damage and increase loot.
  3. The Mage casts spells from far away and hits for a lot of damage. These characters stay at the back and are usually the most damaging classes. They are physically frail though.
  4. The Ranger/Archer hits from afar with arrows. These characters tend to hit fast but not as fast as Assasins/Thieves but they can soak up more hits. Sometimes, they can also switch to the frontlines as necessary.
  5. The Priest heals whenever it’s needed, buffs everyone and resurrects any fallen comrades. They can vacillate between being frail to very hardy depending on the game.

Forum Buzz Highlight: Fansubs/scans or legit?

fansub (short for fan-subtitled) is a version of a foreign film or foreign television program which has been translated by fans and subtitled into a language other than that of the original.
Because distribution of fan-subtitled content is a violation of copyright laws in most countries, the ethical implications of producing, distributing, or watching fansubs are topics of much controversy

Nerd Music: 80s & 90s Cartoon Covers

I would SO watch this show.
Remember when cartoons were AWESOME? Me too.

It’s fair to say most mainstream nerds grew up as kids in the late Eighties or early Nineties. You can see examples of this just by walking into a Hot Topic and counting the number of Care Bears and He-Man shirts for sale. It becomes especially apparent if you listen to a couple of B-sides from your favorite artists. In this special edition of Nerd Music, we’ll be highlighting some of the best old-school cartoon covers around.
