Article Lovable Me: A Minion Love Story

By Andrew Bridgman / March 5, 2014

I'll never forget when we first met - at the nightly mandatory screening of Despicable Me. It was love at first sight. I wasted no time in telling you I loved you.

I got down on one knee, about the height of your average Minion, and asked you if you would be the Female Minion to my Male Minion.

The 6 Most Twisted Romances in Videogame History 

Love and videogames have had a checkered history, at best. Players are either forced through a cheesy story with the dramatic chops of a high school play, or they're asked to pick a series of branches on a dialogue tree in a game of Choose Your Own Relationship. Turns out game developers aren't as good at approximating the complex emotions of human beings as they are at making grisly blood spatter from a chainsaw gun.

 

But every once in a while, in between the shy schoolgirls and alien love triangles, you can find some pretty messed up hook ups. We've compiled a list of these outliers, the most ludicrous liasons in gaming. Whatever you do, don't fall in love.

 

 

 

6. You and your spouse in Skyrim

 

The 6 Most Twisted Romances in Videogame History

 

In Skyrim, getting hitched is as simple as wearing a special amulet and chatting up the townsfolk. It doesn't take much for a citizen to become your lifelong partner, but who can blame them? You're famous, you've got great job security as the Dovahkiin and you can carry like 18 cheese wheels at once -- they gotta lock that down. But once you're married, the game's simple romance mechanics show their seedier side.

 

After you've sworn to carry each other's burdens, your spouse just stays at home and waits for you to return, earning you 100 gold per day while watching over your growing hoard of dragon bones. If you choose to sleep in bed with your S.O. instead of in a cave filled with Nordic zombie corpses, you get a small XP bonus for your swift and inevitable exit to the outside world. Worse yet, if you marry someone who can also be a follower, they're forced into the thankless life that is the Dovahkiin's packmule and meatshield. Accidentally shooting them with an arrow to the back of the head could be considered a mercy killing.

 

Then again, mariticide actually serves a function in Skyrim -- it's the only way to divorce your spouse. If you do decide to brutally murder the person you vowed to honor and protect, you're officially back on the market. You're welcome to remarry and rekill as often as your heart desires, at least until you run out of mates and remember that you never finished the main quest.

Article Pwn Up: Romance of the Three Geekdoms

By Jake Young / February 10, 2014

This week on Pwn Up, we asked to hear about the nerdy, geeky, and otherwise socially-awkward romances you've had or are currently in. If you have a moment so nerdy that you need to tell the Internet about it, we want you to send your submissions to dorklypwnup at gmail 

 

 
Pwn Up: Romance of the Three Geekdoms
 
When my boyfriend and I first met, he introduced me to League of Legends, one of his favorite games.  I sucked hard (of course) but he stuck with me until we were taking on ranked games together.  Every day we would come home from work and play a game (or 7) until we went to bed.  We called this "spending time together" (SPOILER ALERT: it wasn't) and he would give me advice on how to improve my game.  One day, it happened - I mastered a position that he didn't play often, so when he played it I would give HIM advice... and the fights started.  My boyfriend finally uninstalled the game because he feared for our relationship.  And that's how I unintentionally made my boyfriend quit a game he had played for years and spent hundreds of dollars on.  True love right there!
