    I have finally a bit of time before my last exam in august, so I give myself some me time.

    My projects are changing my bicycle rack, updating the PHP version on my father's website and going to a hair dresser. I also ordered a few things, to start working on my Raspberry Pie Zero, but I have to wait until friday for the last things to arrive.

    We live in a capitalistic society. It is only natural that every popular movement somehow gets overtaken through commercialisation. Pride is only one of them.

    The only thing we can do is be aware of things like this as consumers and act accordingly. For example, look for authentic suppliers and don't buy the mass produced "rainbow"-merch.

    I agree with you there.

    Everybody uses their own interpretation to decide what they define as, which inevitable leads to overlap between those terms.

    I personally distinct pan and bi, simply by the level of attraction. While the pan-person is attracted to people regardless of gender, the bi person has certain preferences, which usually fluctuate depending on the mood (sometimes known as "the bicycle").

    No other horror game made me, throughout most of the story, quiver with adrenalin like this one.

    And as CALICO says, the Alien drone from the original is very well captured, with a great movement behaviour.

    I rarely take medication, what works for me is lying in bed (if possible sleeping) and taking a hot (or cold, depending on what feels better at the moment) shower the next morning, which helps getting rid of headaches. Sometimes I also use a hot-water bottle.

    Don't forget to drink a lot!

    Portal is first person and you shoot portals to solve puzzles, but to me its much more than that (I don't play a lot of puzzle games myself). The puzzles, in my experience, are only a way to entertain the player, while you are exploring the laboratories for a way to escape. For me, the main point of the game is to dive into the story, with very enjoyable dialogue.(On a side note, the skyrim puzzles are not really good).
    If you don't really like that genre thats fine, I can only encourage you to give it a try.

    In moon hunters, it always starts the same: you take part at the moon festival, the moon does not appear and you start your quest to bring back the moon. For that you have 5 (?) days to achieve it. Each day you choose which path you take on a map, to solve the mystery. On your journey you can do certain action, which can give you traits, to develope your character further and give you access to more actions (for example: being patient gives you the ability to interact with a specific tree).
    On your journey you learn about other ways to solve the game, which you most likely need a new playtrough to try it (because certain stats are needed). Also the people you can meet remember your old characters and compare your current character to past ones.
    Grinding only makes the last battle easier, but depending on your character it is not always required.

    Another game i forgot is "Am2R" (Another metroid 2 remake),s a community made remake of metroid 2 and free to download. It is a a fun side-scrolling platformer (which requires a bit of skill).

    Getting up in the morning is something I still struggle with, since I can sleep through the loudest alarms.

    The tactic that works best for me is planning to stand up at a certain time. The last thing I do before falling asleep is planning the next morning and specifically think that I will wake up at a certain time and imagine myself doing my morning routine. This somehow makes my body set up its own alarm and often enough I wake up before my physical alarm clock rings.

    I would recommend you Mass Effect 1, but sadly there is no official controller support.

    Portal 2 on the other hand has controller support and the system requirements shouldn't be a problem.
    You can take your time exploring the aperture science laboratories and whilst enjoying the beautiful backstory (which is one of my favourite). You don't need to have played portal 1 before this one.
    If you want to save some money, portal 2 is often on sale (steam), also if you decide to buy it, don't forget to get the free mod "Portal Stories: Mel". This community-made mod takes place between Portal 1 and 2 and explains a bit what happened between them.

    Another game I would recommend is "Star Wars: Knights of the old republic II" (I haven't played the first one yet). This game allows you to decide, how good/bad you want to be and lets you build your character. As a side note, the battle is actually turn based and doesnt need much input (only choosing targets and type of attack)

    Last but not Least "Moon Hunters". You can play it solo, or up to 4 local players. This game is made to be played several times (One playthrough takes around 1h). It also has extremely relaxing music.

    • Sudoku - The clean One:
      • great layout
      • one ad after finishing a sudoku
      • 5 difficulties
      • helper functions, like counting how many numbers are left on the field or highlighting the ones on the field.
        *You can buy ad-free for 3€, but it only shows when you click on a small button in the main menu.
    • Flow free:
      • ad after several levels
      • a lot of free content (I played hours and I'm barely finished around half of the levels)
      • some levels unlock after completing previous packages

    Character creators are a big plus in games.
    I love to costumise characters to my liking, even if it is only changing the hair color, choose between faces, etc.

    The fun for me is to add backstories and experience being someone else. For example in Mass effect my main character grew up in the slums and only survive, by doing what was necessary (using violence and force is what kept her alive), but when you earned her trust she tries to keep you save as long as possible.

    The one thing that is consistent in the characters is that they are almost all female and if available nonhuman .
    Females often have prettier clothes and better hairstyles and I wish to be born as one for different reasons. Games give me the opportunity to live that missed chance.

    To sum it up it gives in my opinion the games much more depth. You get more attached to the character, because you created them.
    Also games are a great way to get away from your normal life and slip for some time in the shoes of someone else. Think like them, act like them without consequences outside of the game (one of my Skyrim characters loves to annihilate everyone it her path, even whole villages)

    In the future, I intend to only upload one at a time, but lets get some new content.
    Critic in general is appreciated, if someone notices certain flaws that become clear through multiple pictures (Lighting and shadows is for example something I struggle with). If it is just in one picture I probably noticed it already.
    Most of ideas came through /r/SketchDaily.
    If you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Also I would like to know about your drawing habits. How often do you draw? Maybe some tips, on how you handle to motivate yourself to create more frequently (thats what I usually struggle the most with).

    Maybe you saw it another post already (Edit: What is your favorite series?, by User sevenus), but Firefly is a must watch for every Sci-fi fan.
    It is a Sci-fi western, which is about the adventures of the crew on board of a spaceship.
    Sadly it was discontinued after a few (Edit: one) seasons.

    I just wasted 45min typing and researching examples only to accidently click the page back button and ruining my whole work and taking my PC's virginity (yes Gustav never searched for porn before).

    Because I'm now very frustrated I only sum up my previous statements (I'm focusing on sexual-NSFW, because that seems to be taking the most of heat):

    • NSFW discussions should be allowed
    • IMO everything that is intended for sexual satisfication should be banned (not only videos, but also stories, pictures and others.
    • Everything else should be allowed (Put sth like "all content with the purpose of sexual gratification is banned" as a rule and give ~ the chance to decide if it is targeted at that each case)
    • Above all else: Don't ban nudity as a from of art.

    As an end note: It is hard to differentiate of nudity as a natural thing and as a sexual thing and they often cross. This is why I think it is important, to decide case by case and focus on the quality of content.
