This Garrus Vakarian Body Pillow May Be the Cruelest April Fools Prank of All

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: We love Garrus Vakarian. I’m still very upset that while Mass Effect 3 went and included male same-sex relationship options for its last go around, everybody’s favorite Turian calibrator was not one of those options. There’s just something about that voice and his cool, collected demeanor that can’t be denied. I don’t even care if he doesn’t have the kind of anatomy I’m used to, as so much fan-porn would erroneously suggest.

Which is why when the BioWare store offered up this Garrus Vakarian body pillow I immediately reached for my….wallet. Of course had I bothered to check a calendar I would have known better than to get my hopes up; it is April Fools Day.

And now I go cry.

Maybe if we’re all really nice to BioWare (and stop complaining about the way ME3 ended) they’ll thrown us this bone…er, cloaca?

The style blogs are still buzzing with tidbits of Fashion Week news. Awards and recognition go out to pop starlets like Rihanna decked out in “Chanel, Lanvin, Christian Dior, Comme des Garçons, Jean Paul Gaultier, Givenchy and Stella McCartney.” And yet, what is the last word on Spring style for gamers?

Stash away your graphic tees! Stow away your Adventure Time hoodies! Your Tokidoki tattoos need not apply. Spring 2014 belongs to Swarovksi Elements Crystals. All the runway models in Paris and Milan must bow to the triumphant UK homecoming of Jotaro Kujo of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle.

The trailer for Ultimate Gay Fighter was built to court gamer ire from its premiere onward.

The upcoming mobile 2D fighter from Handsome Woman Productions (under a publishing partnership with Bearded Man Studios) turned heads and busted keyboards with its roster of gay cliches and rough alpha appearance. GayGamer’s own Christian took a look at the roster and rated the cast from good to bad to WTF. As the months went on, the bile for this hopeful satire has only risen. We recently had a chance to send a few questions to Michael Patrick, project lead on UGF, on what drove him to raise such an overt middle finger to the status quo of the  fighting game community.

Dear Diary,

Finally a quiet week with no major drama. Oh, I mean, that’s not to say that nobody tried moving or anything. Because they always do. I also got another weird letter from my mom that read: “Dear Chris, I’ve been focusing on my posture and trying to look more elegant. But your dad makes silly faces, and I get the giggles. Eat healthy snacks! – Mom” And she included an orange, which is quite healthy. But I don’t know what eating healthy has to do with elegant posture. Or my dad thwarting mom’s efforts to be elegant.

But it was a nice and sedate week with no big events so I was finally able to clean up the town a bit. I’ve been neglecting my mayoral duties for too long, now. Read on and I’ll explain.
