Order in the Courtship
Courtship is a pretty stupid thing to write a SA front page update about because it's hard to work in "hilarious" references to Scientology, World War II, or the NES.
I actually like the idea of a wooing process. If a girl will let you remove her unmentionables on the first date... well, where's the challenge in that? It's too easy, like playing through Contra with the Konomi Code.
Ah ha, see how I worked the NES reference in there? HOW'S THAT FOR COMEDY GOLD?!?! INTERNET HILARITY AT ITS FINEST GENTS, SLAP ON YOUR LOLLERSKATES AND HEAD FOR THE ROFLCOPTER!!!!!!!!!!
Poker's Best Boy
The goal of courtship is to ultimately "poke her" and the goal of Bill Fillmaff is to teach you how to play "poker!" Look for chapter 5 of Bill Fillmaff's Secret System sometime today (or tomorrow or yesterday or ten years ago, depending on when you read this).
I help Bill out with posting his videos and he's an... interesting guy.

OK, that's enough.
Given our society's obsession with stalking and ridiculing celebrities, it's tempting to seek a life of anonymity. But beware: not being famous has its own hidden costs.
Mass Effect: Andromeda turns its nose up at the original trilogy's rigid morality. It boasts a more nuanced and intellectually compelling shades-of-grey approach in which a heart icon pops up when it's time to tell an alien to take their clothes off.
