Newgrounds absorbs previous Tumblr users

So recently Tumblrs app got removed from the app store for adult content. This of course is pretty bad for a company as big as them as it means huge amounts of money lost. So they quickly took measures and put out a wide sweeping ban on almost all adult content. This is a pretty big brush to paint though which means they have effectively banned hundreds of thousands of users. 

This however was pretty good news for Newgrounds who all the users flocked to to keep posting there adult rated art and content. I find this good myself, Newgrounds does not censor people and are very open. Where as sites like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr are way too politically correct censoring things that they deem "adult" I'm personally against censoring of any form. Even though I keep my games generally G rated to hit a larger audience. I find people should have complete freedom of speech and expression.

Wai-Con 2010

Just got back from Wai-Con in perth and it was amazingly fun!!. So many pictures taken of all the cosplayers and such you can view here >

All the cosplayers around in anime costumes. The sexy anime schoolgirls :P the bleach and naruto. Mass pokemon. Gotta love it. We went in the super smash bros 128 player tournament, and survived the first round then got slaughtered in the second.

It's pretty cool having a crowd cheer you on playing a game, such a different experience. Was pretty funny cause I got the ultimate power up then kirby sword dived off the edge killing myself and the whole crowd did a awww...boo.... Was pretty hilarious.

THERE WAS SO MUCH POCKY STICKS OMG. I also bought mario mushroom, shurikens, kirby and yoshi plushies. My friend got an anime mousepad with boobs as the hand rest of the anime girl :D

Saw Eminence, they are the orchestra that made the music for Soul Caliber, evangelion, some WoW, Chronos cross and much more. Was pretty impressive. They did an encore of super mario at the end playing an intense version. Fairly inspiring music for game making :)

Met up with RubberNinja from NG here at his booth promoting GamerTonight. Was pretty cool seeing him in person. 

All in all, great time of being super nerdy! Next year I'm definitely gonna dress up.
