Some context: entering this season, no woman had completed a televised course in either Japanese or American Ninja Warriors. I’d also argue that ANW’s qualifying courses are harder than any Stage 1 course on either.
This woman is a fucking badass. First woman ever to advance!
I’m not crying you’re crying
If you don’t think this is awesome you need to get out of my face
I lovelovelove the commentators on this too, not a single word about how hot she looks doing this shit, just complete and utter delight at how well she is doing here.
she made it look so EASY. does she even break a sweat?
God damn, and she looked so chill the entire time.
This is incredible! <3
My work friend told me today how she had been playing Bioshock Infinite while her infant son was napping. Usually when he wakes up from his nap, he’s fairly mellow and can be left to play on his own while she finds a save point. But one day he was pretty fussy and would not be ignored and so she unlocked a Gamer Mom Achievement: gaming while nursing. I’ve never been so proud of this girl.
Thanks for the submit! Not sure why I couldn’t post it. =)
You are totally right, I do appreciate it. Super cute. Nursing while gaming. <3<3<3 Power Moms!
About Us What is Summer of Doom? Trust us - it’s nicer than it sounds.
So some friends of mine are doing this thing. It’s for a really good cause and you can learn some more stuff about it on the link but basically Child’s Play is a charity that gives toys and things to kids who are constantly in hospitals to make their lives a little better and my friends are going to stream a gameathon for the DOOM games so you should all donate and come watch because it’s gonna be really cool.
Please donate. Or just signal boost.
Last time, guys, I promise. He Who Runs This Stuff has informed me that I did not do a good enough job explaining this. Apparently I am to inform you that I am personally involved in this Endeavor, and copy the About Us section here. So I will start by saying that I will be a chat mod during the stream, so if you watch it, you can talk to me. Sometimes. I do need sleep occasionally.
Now for the About Us section:
Summer of Doom is an upcoming charity gaming marathon in support of the Child’s Play charity, which works to improve the lives of children in hospitals with toys and games. To help them raise money, our team will be playing through all three of the Doom games for as long as viewers like you keep donating. It’ll be a fun and entertaining show for those who love Doom or love videogames, and hopefully it will be a great event to help children in need!
Why not? Doom has always been one of our favorites (and an absolute obsession for Isaac, the guy behind all this). It’s also one of the most important videogames in history, popularizing first person shooters and pioneering 3D graphics, networked multiplayer, and community modifications. And with that upcoming sequel…reboot…thing, this seems as good a time to celebrate these classics as any.
This time it’s different, though. It’s not one lone marine fighting to save humanity. It’s all of us - the team, and you beautiful viewers who pledge your support.
About the Team:
Our crack squadron of UAC Marines is formed of lifelong gamers and students who were looking for ways to earn community service hours for high school. We thought this would be a fun way to combine our love for videogames (and the Doom series in particular) with helping a worthy cause.
I would also like to point out that if you donate $10, you can request stuff. We will do silly things for your amusement. I am personally willing to do silly things for your amusement if I’m ever playing.
Special Team Request
For ten dollars, someone on our team will do something silly at your request, similar to the Desert Bus for Hope marathon. We’ll sing songs! Do dances! Tell stories! Your request must be something within reason and we reserve the right to refuse any request made that is unreasonable.
Special Game Request
For fifteen dollars, you won’t just be controlling the team, you’ll be controlling the game. Force us to play with a silly constraint, like playing through a level using only the chainsaw. These requests are the most expensive because they’re often the most fun and because they have the greatest tendency to slow down the marathon.
So that’s a thing, if it makes it better. Now I’m gonna stop because I think this is getting a bit long.
Gaming Charity is always a win!! <3<3<3
GAMER GIRL MEME
In reality we are all a bit of each of the examples, but overall this is my favorite of the gamer girl memees. <3
Things I love more than RDJ, Benny C and Hiddles:
Pokémon, I have been obsessed ever since I was a wee nipper (and I’m 22 now) I still collect the cards like crazy and have an amazing collection… Not to mention figures board games and so much more… This ties in with my love for video games especially COD… My nan (yup my nan) is a gamer and introduced me to the SNES when I was small!! :)
Dragonball Z is a big part of my life too, much like Pokémon. I couldn’t afford Sky TV as a kid so too keep up with everyone else watching the cartoon at school I read the manga books. Which now I realise are so much better than the cartoon that was aired (mainly because it was the dubbed version) also this started my love for drawing and introduced me to the whole world of manga.
Then there’s cosplay! That just goes without saying!!
And reading, not just manga… I love Shakespeare (yes before Tom in Coriolanus haha) from when I first saw Kenneth Branagh’s Much Ado About nothing as a teenager!
Then there’s the sci-fi… Love original and next gen Star Trek!! Plus cult TV like A-Team!!
Ahh I have so much love for things I was introduced too in my childhood!! It’s ridiculous and I think this small part of my games, books and cosplay collection does a good job of summing everything up!! :’)
My spidey sense tells me the nerd is strong with this one.
