The joke is of course a classic reference to the Attack Helicopter Copypasta Invented by 4chan and recently seen all across the web. The rather hilarious Copypasta makes fun of and parodies absurd gender, sexual and self identification posts often found on social networks like Tumblr. The full copypasta reads:

“I sexually Identify as an Attack Helicopter. Ever since I was a boy I dreamed of soaring over the oilfields dropping hot sticky loads on disgusting foreigners. People say to me that a person being a helicopter is Impossible and I’m fucking retarded but I don’t care, I’m beautiful. I’m having a plastic surgeon install rotary blades, 30 mm cannons and AMG-114 Hellfire missiles on my body. From now on I want you guys to call me “Apache” and respect my right to kill from above and kill needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding.”

But the world isn’t filled with logical people. This is especially true of the gaming industry where people often take to social media to just b*tch about anything and everything.

Case in point, “The CrapGamer” who lashed out at Phil Spencer through a series of some of the most ridiculous tweets I’ve ever seen.

Amazon’s releasing their very own game engine. Lumberyard, as they call it, is based on Crytek’s famous CryEngine, and can be used to develop games for both PC and consoles. It’s also free to download, and comes with “no seat fees, subscription fees, or requirements to share revenue.

Fees come in only, as Lumberyard’s official page notes, if the game takes advantage of the engine’s integration with Amazon Web Services for multiplayer. Besides AWS, the engine has specific features which target Twitch.

Majority of video games, both on mobile and on the other major gaming platforms, generally steer clear of controversial topics like religion, racism, feminism, and other similar touchy issues. The action adventure video game, “The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth,” designed by Edmund McMillen and developed by Nicalis however, seems to simply point in that direction and apparently features controversial religious tones and also “abuse of children”.

While the game portrayal of the controversial topics are simply included to poke fun at them and to add an overall realistic environment and background, some platforms and companies don’t seem to think so.

SpouseThere are few worse things I can imagine than your parents or spouse receiving periodic access to your web browsing history. Even if you have nothing specific to hide, your browser history can be intensely personal and has the potential for all kinds of embarrassment. It’s the closest someone could come to reading your thoughts.

Yet that is the exact purpose of the app Covenant Eyes.

Covenant Eyes was created by evangelical Christians, and is designed to minimize all the temptations the web has to offer—specifically, porn. For $10 a month, you can get an Internet Accountability report sent to your spouse, a friend, or anyone who would understand your struggles with erotic desire. This report is customizable, so you can set it to only report what times you went online, or the most “highly mature” sites you visited. (The website provides a sample report.)

unsung_story_1600.0Active development has stopped on Unsung Story, a role-playing game funded with more than $600,000 in Kickstarter donations in 2014, studio Playdek told backers on Saturday.

“During the last few months we have had some development setbacks that are affecting our timeline and progress on the game, while also affecting what we need to do in the immediate future as a company,” Playdek wrote.

Playdek says it must “focus on a few products in the near term that have the ability to get to a retail release before Unsung Story is able to,” calling that necessary for “the ongoing financial health of the company.”
