there’s nothing I don’t love about this
I have been going to anime cons for a very long time. A lot longer than my parents expected and a lot longer than I’m sure they wanted. For the first few years, I absolutely enjoyed each experience. But I think it was 2010 that I noticed my attitude had changed. For the first time, I didn’t actually enjoy a con. From there, it was a downward spiral. I found myself leaving cons with only a half-hearted experience. It was only very recently that I pinpointed the reasons and I changed how I approach conventions, and it’s helped me immensely.
I should preface this by saying that I am a cosplayer. I have been cosplaying for five years now, and the reason I’m stating this is that part of the reason I’ve faced problems with enjoying cons and and it’s also been something that’s enhanced my con experience.
The reason I’m posting this is partially to bear my soul and partially to give a message that I feel a lot of cosplayers and con-goers need to see. I have seen my friends frequently post about not enjoying cons anymore or feeling like giving up cosplay, and I don’t want to invalidate their feelings, but I also want to see if I can get them to approach con-going from a different point of view.
If you don’t want to read the whole long post, if you scroll down to the bottom, you get my tips.
WHAT’S UP INTERNET
If you’re a gamer, you probably noticed all the new stuff being announces at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles. I’m super excited, especially about all the announcements from Sony and Nintendo.
Lots of people are excited for different consoles and their respective games, LIKE THE 3DS. So here’s your chance to win one! The winner will receive a red 3DS XL system (like new, used only a few times) with its original box, charger, manuals, and AR cards. Plus, the two latest killer apps for the 3DS, Fire Emblem: Awakening and Animal Crossing: New Leaf!
- Sadly, the 3DS is region-locked, so I am only shipping to the United States (50 states).
- Reblogs count, Likes do not. Only one reblog will count per person.
- If you make a fake/empty/giveaway/side blog to reblog, you will be disqualified.
- I will need the winner’s address for shipping purposes, so you have to be comfortable with sharing this information.
The giveaway will end on Friday, June 21st and the winner will be announced on that day! Good luck!

You should have taken my class.
I thought to myself when I saw this, “no. This has to be some one being silly. This has to be something some one fabricated to make microsoft look worse and people just aren’t checking the source.”
AND IT GOT WORSE:
I want everyone to think long and hard on this information.
This means that you are not buying your games. You are paying 60+ dollars to rent the games from Microsoft, and they can take their game back whenever they feel like it.
You will not own your game. You will not own your console. Essentially, Microsoft is saying “We can disable your games and cut you off from accessing your console whenever we choose to.” Because a ban that locks your XBox Live account means that you will be locked out from all non-game functionality of the system, and by revoking your ‘licenses’ on all your games associated with your account, they can then disable each and every game you own for the system. Leaving you with a five hundred dollar cable receiver. Or, in the case of most users of the console, a five hundred dollar paperweight.
All because you accidentally walked into some online glitch and the rest of the players rage-report you for cheating.
This is unacceptable. Buy any console but an XBox One. Do not support Microsoft’s sudden belief that they own everything despite our purchase of it, and we have to prove we’re worthy of being shared with by paying exorbitant fees and jumping through constant hoops and hoping someone doesn’t report us for cheating because we made them mad in an online game.
Tell Microsoft ‘No,’ and do not give them your hard-earned money for what amounts to a video game subscription service with a $500 starting fee and $60+ dollar purchases.
