Abby Wambach for the ESPN Body Issue.
I love these photos. I love these photos because it’s the first time I can think of when I haven’t had to see a female athlete be overly sexualized and objectified. She’s naked, yes that’s the point of the issue (and the men are just as nude), but she’s powerful. She’s athletic and strong in both of these photos.
They just make me happy, okay?
This is like, Classical Greek Olympian style. Less, “Hurrrrr, she’s nekkid” and more “HOLY SHIT LOOK AT HOW AWESOMELY BADASS HER BODY IS GODDAMN”.
I like it.
I had to have a closer look to realize the photos were of a female athlete, because of how non-sexual they are.
i wanna be her
Spacebase DF-9 released on Steam Early Access!
Welcome, intrepid explorers! Spacebase DF-9 has launched into the cosmos of Steam Early Access for everyone to play. We appreciate your support more than words can say, but we’re going to try. We’ll use this website to keep you up-to-date on the game’s continuing development, provide resources for new players and some peeks behind the scenes.
Speaking of which: we weren’t kidding in the press release, Tim actually launched us into space and we are trapped on this satellite! We’re okay for the moment; we figured out how to change out the oxygen tanks so we’ll be alive and developing the game for at least another - (checks) - 56 hours! Next I guess we’ll need to worry about food.
While the site went live just today, we’ve put up several back-dated posts that chronicle the game’s development up to this point, starting in March of 2013. You can see how far we’ve come in that time, and hopefully get an idea of where we’re headed!
We also set up a wiki with the help of the nice folks at Gamepedia where players can compile information about the game. We’d like for this to become a primary resource for new and master players but in the spirit of building a real community, we’d like to let you take the first step. It’s publicly editable and waiting for quality contributors, so if the idea of a pristine new wiki waiting to be filled with informationy goodness makes your mouth water, dive in!
Thank you again for joining us on this odyssey. Who knows where we’ll end up? Space is huge and scary but we’ve got each other! SPACE HUUGS!
This game reminds me so much of games like Dungeon Keeper and Startopia, I couldn’t get into the amnesia fortnight version (cause i couldn’t figure out what to do) but I want this so much! getting it right away!
