Watching Free To Play. I kinda want to try DOTA2, though I'll be very bad at it. Its a very good story of pro-gamer culture, so far. Good Stuff.

Guys, I saw this and had to come back home, to try and figure things out. And this isn't to say there's actual sides to be had, or rigth stances or wrong stances... but huh?  Is gaming actually transcending an ideo...   0

So, you want to be my friend...

So... if you met me at a party would you walk up and hand me a picture of lesbian porn?  I don't really care if you're female, or if you're gay, but you might want to introduce yourself first and say "hi", before giving me ...   0

10 reasons why Elsa is always right...

1.  If you're a male, you're wrong.  One thing I've learned from gaming media in recent years is that being a woman makes me always right.  Apparently I lack "privilege" even though I'm a middle class white woman with a n...   0

The invisibility of the older woman...

I'm currently 51 and frankly, when I hit 50... shit happened.  I stopped dying my hair only to find out that I no longer had dark brown hair, but instead when the sun hits my locks, you could be blinded from the s...   0

Feminist Frequency and Relevance...

So, Anita Sarkeesian has completed her "Damsel in Distress" trilogy.  In the first video, she introduced the trope and gave some historical background to it.  She spoke of how the male rescuer was the subject and the woman ...   0

We're currently going through a family crisis.  My father-in-law is 80 and has had a brain hemorrhage.  My husband immediately flew out to be with his father and after 10 days, he's finally back home now. It's been several ...   0

How important are MOBAs to you?  For the people that make them, play them, or promote them, Multiplayer Online Battle Arena games are the biggest thing since corgis. I know they're a growing segment, and I've seen the playe...   0

No means no... but sometimes it has to be said out loud.

This started as a response to Glowbear's excellent blog recapping some recent events at E3, but it grew far too long, and I've never been concise... so I'll put my huge ramble here in my own blog, but please read her blog FIR...   0

More questions than answers...

As with many console launches in the past, this year I've come away with more questions than answers.  I'm usually a Sony fangirl, but for the next generation of game consoles, I'm still undecided between the Xbox One and t...   0

Deal with it.

Yup, the next Xbox might not be for you. The rumours of an "always on" internet connected next-generation Xbox aren't particularly new, though recent leaks and the distinct lack of any outright denial seem to further confi...   0

I think I'm going to be defiant!

Me and my digital dick...

A Father's Fight: Asura's Wrath is Awesome

BURST! The right trigger glyph flashes on the screen as Asura's blazing anger reaches yet another limit break, flames licking the chrome on the thin and understated health/rage meters. I slam my index finger against the bu...   0

Play My Game: Article Of Loathing
