Wow, okay, my brother is fucking awesome

He just offered to help me get the funds to buy a new, high end gaming PC (One that costs around 600-800$)
Fucking Sony

charging extra for Ark Survival evolved on the ps4 when they didn't even TRY to optimize the game for the console and gave it an incredibly shitty frame rate

What they did is an insult to Ark. I'm never buying another game for the PS4. It's so shit. I have no clue why I wanted that thing instead of an actually good PC 
You know what really pisses me off? Youtubers who shamelessly use other people's artwork in videos and thumbnails without the consent of the artist.

Seriously. Let's say you draw a really awesome piece of artwork. It took you several weeks to complete, but now it's finally done. You post it online and wait for someone else to find it and appreciate it, giving you the encouragement to continue to create art and grow as an artist.

But then you notice something. While looking around youtube, watching videos of your favorite TV show, movie, comic, or game your artwork is based on, you see a video with YOUR artwork as the thumbnail

Confused as to why you were un-aware that someone had used your artwork, you click on the video and watch it, looking for some form of credit to you since you are the one who drew the picture. Absolutely nothing. Not a single mention of you, or the source of your artwork.

You then look down in the comments. You see people praising the artwork in the thumbnail and complimenting the Youtuber for having such amazing artistic skills, even though he/she isn't the one who drew the picture.

Finally, you go back to the place where you posted your artwork. Even though the video that used your art has nearly a million views, you have received next to nothing in terms of appreciation for your hard work.

(So yeah, if any of you are youtubers or plan on becoming youtubers in the future, don't do this please. If you see something on google images that you like, please try finding the source of the picture and ask the artist if you can use it before you actually... Well... use it. If not, at least credit the artist in some way so they get the attention they deserve. This goes for really anyone producing content on the internet. I just see it on Youtube a lot nowadays)
*Trying to actually draw something but can't since Sketchbook Pro is a piece of shit and is slow as a god damn snail*
Okay wow, I really should start drawing fanart for ARK Survival Evolved because holy shit

When me and my brother play local multiplayer.... Shit goes down

I mean us wiping out entire island populations just for exp points, taming an entire pack of Dilophosaurs, frantically building spiked walls to keep Tyannosaurs out of our base

There's never a time when we end a session of ARK and say "Wow, nothing insane happened today!"
WOW, it took way too long to find a good tutorial for this

The four Rubies look to their left to see one of their teammate, Navy riding on the shoulders of a large, presumably human creature with a black mask over its face and fire proof clothing covering the rest of its body.

"Mrph! Mmhm!" The Pyro muffled in happiness as he floated around in space with Navy. In the Pyromaniac's mind, these little red girls looked and felt like they were on fire at all times, which were a lovely chance of pace from the cold and colorless void that is space.

The Pyro looked up at Navy and made a gesture with his hands. He seemingly wanted her to share some of her fire with him
