More importantly, the dating game show provides a special opportunity that real-life dating could never afford: the chance to be on television.There have been countless dating shows over the past 50 years, but they largely subscribe to one of three formats: speedy matchmaking along the lines of The Dating Game, voyeuristic date commentary akin to Love Connection, and dramatized dating competitions like Who Wants To Marry A Multi-Millionaire? As is the case with most television, the primary goal is always to entertain the audience at home, but as time marched on, many of these shows traded sweetness for sarcasm and grabs at romance for grabs at fame.Chuck Tingle, Phd., the (self proclaimed) Tae Kwon Do master who wrote Pokémon Go erotica, and Zoe Quinn, Gamergate's public enemy number one, are Kickstarting a video game. The Kickstarter "Kickstarted in the Butt: A Chuck Tingle Digital Adventure" is asking for ,420 USD by Wednesday, November 16th, to produce the project.
If you don't know who Zoe Quinn is, then congrats on being spared one of the ugliest eras of internet hate this side of the 2016 US election.
If you’re unfamiliar with Chuck Tingle: he’s a somewhat notorious author whose short e-books - all published on Amazon - invariably involve the protagonist being pounded in the butt by some supernatural creature, topical event, or abstract concept. Those titles bely an intelligent and self-aware writer who - let’s face it - has a pretty good thing going.
He’s also apparently a Tae Kwon Do grandmaster and doctor of holistic massage, so he’s got some fallback options.
Are Black women undesirable for relationships and marriage because so many are overweight? Actor Boris Kodjoe has an interesting perspective on it, as does Deb Cooper.
It has been said that people have only two desires, to love and to be loved. So television smiled down upon the loveless masses and gave unto them the dating game show.
For all the positive impact Quinn’s work in online security has had, it’s hard to fault her decision to change tack to a game this fucking bonkers: The two creatives’ collaboration will come as no surprise to anyone who’s played her wide range of short comedy games.
