  • 02/21/17--14:26: #PieGate
  • Overview

    #PieGate refers to a controversy in which former Sutton United Football Club reserve goalkeeper Wayne Shaw ate a meat pie on live television in late February 2017. After it was discovered that he had knowledge about a bet regarding the incident, Shaw resigned as goalkeeper for breaking Football Association gambling regulations.

    Background

    On February 20th, 2017, the @SunBets[6] Twitter feed tweeted a photo of Shaw next to a meat pie captioned with 8 to 1 odds against him eating the food live on the air (shown below).



    That evening, Shaw was filmed eating a meat pie at the touchline toward the end of football game at the Gander Green Lane stadium in London, England (shown below).



    Developments

    Following the incident, Shaw admitted to reporters that he knew a betting company was offering 8-1 odds against a bet that he would eat a pie on a bench during the football game, claiming he pulled the stunt to give fans “a bit of banter.”

    “A few of the lads said to me earlier on: ‘What is going on with the 8-1 about eating a pie?’ I said: ‘I don’t know, I’ve eaten nothing all day, so I might give it a go later on.’ Sun Bets had us at 8-1 to eat a pie. I thought I would give them a bit of banter and let’s do it. All the subs were on and we were 2-0 down. I went and got it at half time from the kitchen, I had it all prepared and ready to go. It was meat and potato”

    The following day, Shaw resigned from Sutton United after being informed that his actions broke Football Association gambling regulations.

    On Twitter

    On February 21st, television host Piers Morgan tweeted a photograph of himself with Shaw, referring to his dismissal as “absurd” (shown below). Within six hours, the tweet gained over 4,300 likes and 1,700 retweets.[1]



    That day, many Twitter users tweeted about the incident along with the hashtag #PieGate[2] (shown below).

  • 02/14/17--09:52: #RelationshipGoals
  • About

    “#RelationshipGoals” is a hashtag used to share pictures on social media that the poster believes exhibits the type of romantic relationship worth striving to achieve with a partner.

    Origin

    While the moment “Relationship Goals” became a popular way to comment on images of couples on social media is unclear, one of the earliest articles to use “Relationship Goals” in that way was posted on Lifehack[1] on June 15th, 2009 in an article titled, “Relationship Goals: 8 Traveling Couples To Follow On Instagram.” This was an example of the first type of #RelationshipGoals narrative, which was often employed for couples traveling to exotic locations.



    Spread

    The phrase and its hashtag began seeing more spread over the coming years on photo-sharing sites like Instagram and Pinterest. However, it was not until the Summer of 2014 when the hashtag began to gain some more widespread attention. On July 7th, 2014, Buzzfeed[2] published an article of cute couples’ photos that featured several posts using the hashtag #RelationshipGoals. On the same day, a Reddit photo[3] of an old couple titled Relationship Goals was posted and gained over 18,000 upvotes (shown below).



    After the summer of 2014, the phrase became common vernacular, appearing in dozens of articles devoted to couples behaving particularly romantically. Often, the phrase would be used by clickbait style articles with overly sentimental images (ex: shown below).



    The prevalence of the phrase and the various images associated with it led to a mild backlash where articles used the phrase to encourage setting more realistic relationship goals.[4] In December of 2016, Bustle[5] ran an article in which they interviewed a couple’s therapist who warned that the fantasy moments portrayed in standard “relationship goals” photos were not the key to a successful relationship. #RelationshipGoals also grew into a common way to refer to celebrity relationships, which also has drawn critical thought, as psychologists warn that comparing one’s life to a celebrity relationship is detrimental.[6]

  • Reforge was a masterpiece of a band formed in Port Talbot, Wales, United Kingdom in 2015. They attempted to “reforge the metal genre”; however, due to the inclusion of a singer that couldn’t sing, a bass guitarist that couldn’t play, and a drummer who didn’t know the song, the band’s first gig failed. Ever since, the band has gained quite the local following as a meme, by the humorous nature of their bad performance, and their original songs.

  • 02/23/17--07:41: Azure Striker Gunvolt
  • W.I.P.

    About

    Azure Striker Gunvolt or Armed Blue: Gunvolt in Japan (Japanese: 蒼き雷霆 ガンヴォルト) is an 2D Side-Scrolling Action game developed and published by Inti Creates with input from Keiji Inafune for the Nintendo 3DS and Steam. It is Inti Creates’ first self-published title and multimedia franchise.

    History

    Released in August 2014 for the Nintendo. In addition to utilizing gameplay similar to Mega Man Zero, Azure Striker Gunvolt also introduced new gameplay elements such as Gunvolt’s ability to “tag” enemies and target many at once, adding an additional layer of complexity to the genre. The game also got a PC version on Steam released in August 2015, featuring full Japanese voice acting and some lines cut from the 3DS version.

    Azure Striker Gunvolt is a side-scrolling action platform game. The player controls the eponymous Gunvolt, who is able to jump, dash, and utilize a gun with special bullets that “tag” their targets, which grants a homing effect to Gunvolt’s electric fields. The player’s actions are limited by an energy bar, which depletes when using the electrical field, using additional movement abilities such as double-jumping or air dashing, or being hit by enemies.

    Gameplay

    Gameplay focuses heavily on the player’s technique and skill in moving through levels. While finishing a level is relatively easy, the game provides a ranking system as well as several optional challenges. The game introduces a “chain” system in which the player’s score is constantly increased so long as the player avoids being hit by enemies, with special actions such as defeating an enemy in the air or defeating multiple enemies at one time providing an additional bonus. The game uses an item-forging and equipping system, the former of which is instrumental in achieving the game’s true ending.

    Plot

    Azure Striker Gunvolt is set during an unspecified date in the near future, in which several people called “adepts” have developed “septimal powers”.These powers enable superhuman feats including flight, the use of powerful energy weapons, and manipulation of the elements like fire, water, and electricity. The world is at peace thanks to the efforts of a world-spanning corporation known as the Sumeragi Group. However, the Sumeragi Group is, in reality, controlling and experimenting on adepts. Gunvolt, one of the most powerful adepts, has the ability to create electrical fields and works for an organization known as QUILL, which is seeking to reveal and put a stop to Sumeragi’s ulterior motives.

    Reception

    Azure Striker Gunvolt received critical acclaim and sold over 90,000 units six months after its release, being praised for its art and gameplay, although it has experienced some criticism of its similarities in plot to the Mega Man series. Inti Creates later announced that Azure Striker Gunvolt had sold 100,000 units by March 2015. In March 2016, Inti Creates announced that Azure Striker Gunvolt had sold over 150,000 units worldwide and aired a presentation regarding its sequel on April 26, 2016. In May 2016, Inti Creates announced that it had sold 160,000 units worldwide.

    Impact

    Spin-off

    Mighty Gunvolt (マイティガンヴォルト Maiti Ganvoruto in japan) is a platform video game developed by Inti Creates originally for the Nintendo 3DS platform. The game is a spin-of of Inti Creates’ Azure Striker Gunvolt, additionally featuring characters from Gal*Gun and Mighty No. 9.
    Mighty Gunvolt is an 8-bit style platform game in the style of Mega Man, in which players shoot their way through five main stages (as well as additional stages available as downloadable content). Players can play as one of three characters; Gunvolt from Azure Striker Gunvolt, Beck from Mighty No. 9, and Ekoro from Gal*Gun, each with their own unique abilities. Gunvolt can perform a double jump and use a chargeable lightning attack, Ekoro can float in mid-air and convert certain enemies to her side, and Beck can use slides and tackles to access certain areas and charge through opponents.

    The game was released on the Nintendo eShop on August 20, 2014 in Japan and April 2, 2015 in Europe. A port for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, titled Gal Gunvolt (ぎゃるガンヴォルト Gyaru Ganvoruto in japan), was released in Japan on August 6 2015. A version of the original Mighty Gunvolt has also been announced for Microsoft Windows, and will be available for free to purchasers of Azure Striker Gunvolt within the first month of its release on PC.

    On the Inti-Creates’ blog, a MS-DOS text-based port of the game was made to celebrate the release of the PC version of the game.

    Sequel

    The game was teased in February 2015, when Inti Creates posted a tweet with the logo for the game. No further info was revealed until over a year later, when a Nintendo Direct on March 3, 2016, showed footage for the game. An official trailer was published the same day, revealing a vague release date of “Summer 2016”.
    A physical release containing the game and its predecessor, titled Azure Striker Gunvolt Striker Pack, was released alongside the digital release in Japan and North America.

    The gameplay is directly based on the one in the original game. The main character, Gunvolt, controls nearly identically as in Azure Striker Gunvolt, using a gun to lock onto enemies and then using his electric field in order to attack them. The game, however, now adds the option to play as Copen, a character that played a major role in the previous game. He has an entirely different control scheme, now focusing on his dash attack, which is used to lock onto enemies, then using a gun to attack them. He can also use powers from defeated bosses, similar to the Mega Man franchise.

    As a result of the collaboration with Yacht Club Games, players can unlock a special boss battle against the titular protagonist of Shovel Knight through use of the Shovel Knight amiibo. In December 2016, Japan released a DLC pack that contains score attacks, a song track and a speed run mode.

    OVA

    An original video anime adaptation was announced by Inti Creates at the Anime Expo 2016 convention in Los Angeles, California on July 3, 2016. The series will be directed and produced by Yoshinori Odaka, with animation by LandQ Studios, scripts written by Shigeru Murakoshi, and character designs by Masakazu Sunagawa. It was planned for a 2016 release, but it was delayed to 2017, eventually being released worldwide on the Nintendo eShop on February 9, 2017, along with an English dubbed version.

    Novel

    Azure Striker Gunvolt: Fleeting Memories (陽炎のメモリア, Kagerou no Memoria) is a side story written by Toshiaki Tai, first appearing in INTI CREATES’ YouTube program Interactive Wave. An English translation by Matt Papa is found on their website.
