Are VIdeo Games Sexist: What the heck is going on here?

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...   more

Are VIdeo Games Sexist: What the heck is going on here?


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 ...   more



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...   more



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 silver refl...   more



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 ...   more



Killing Death

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 ...   more



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...   more



It's all about who you're sleeping with...

original Possible spoilers for the Mass Effect trilogy ahead... proceed at your own risk! I've mentioned it before, but I seem to have the worst luck when it comes to video game romances.  I dumped Anomen the wimp in Bald...   more



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...   more



Fun Facts about Females

Meet Jane.  She owns a smartphone or tablet.  The install base on Android and iOS devices alone is larger than all the current gen consoles combined.  According to Flurry (an app analytics company) there are also about 26 m...   more



The sound of many hands fapping...

... is now silenced. Apparently the fap button has been replaced by a generic "like" button and previous fap records have all disappeared. I find I rather miss seeing the fap numbers on some of my previous blogs as the faps...   more



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...   more



I think I'm going to be defiant!

I got to level 157 or so in Defiance during the beta week... so apparently I liked the game. It releases today on my Birthday, April 2nd, and there's a pretty decent chance I'll be getting the game...because Birthday monie...   more



Just call me Farmer Elsa!

I never did play Demon Souls... even though I normally love WRPG styled games. I heard it was difficult, as in brutally difficult and when I want to have my ass kicked, I generally load up an online multiplayer FPS game like...   more



Me and my digital dick...

I've been a gamer since I was a nameless, genderless, adventurer in games like Zork and Myst.  I then moved on to the Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Icewind Dales series of games and I always had the option to play as a...   more



Damsel in Distress....

I know that Anita Sarkeesian's "Damsel in Distress" initial video of her examination of Tropes vs Women in Video games is due to drop tomorrow, so I wanted to get some of my thoughts out previous to viewing her video. I si...   more



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...   more

Gaming Porn for Women

Last year for Valentine's Day my husband got me a funny little book called "Porn for Women" and included really nice pictures of guys saying things like "God, that's SO interesting... tell me more" or "Oh look! The NFL playo...   more



Play My Game: Article Of Loathing

For about 20 years now, I've wanted to make games. Up until about a year ago, I hadn't made much more than a simple ascii game in PASCAL and a hand full of levels in a handful of level editor enabled games. For the past f...   more

Play My Game: Article Of Loathing


Did you know you can walk into any large store and find an abundance of Wii U?

I've been out shopping a lot lately and have made repeat visits to many of the same stores on different days of the week. Lots of different deals on different days at different places. But you want to know one thing that's co...   more

Did you know you can walk into any large store and find an abundance of Wii U?


Competition, video games and real life...

I'm not a competitive person. I tend to prefer multiplayer shooter games that are based on team tactics and allow for helping out team members with the ability to play medic or engineer or other non-shooty aspects to the g...   more



Surprise!

So I finally (after trying out a LOT of demos) found a Kinect game I actually like. Someone on another blog indicated that the game Rhythm Party was similar to the old Eyetoy Groove game... so I looked up the demo and gave...   more



The Halo 4 sexist banning threat has no balls.

First off, for those that don't know - I am an old, white female. My gender has occasionally been questioned, but I can describe menstrual cramps in detail, and I can also now give a crash course in early menopause... and ...   more



Safe gaming... and leg condoms!

I can't help feeling a bit maternal about those on my buddy list.. I care about you! I also can't help but notice that some of you are playing Borderlands 2 - all the time, - probably too much. I wonder if you're practic...   more



Resident Evil 6 sells a lot, ensures Resident Evil games will continue to suck

According to the American Weekly Chart over at vgchartz.com, Capcom's Resident Evil 6 has managed to move over 800,000 copies in the grand old USA in just one week on the shelves. Look closer and you'll notice that it's so...   more

Resident Evil 6 sells a lot, ensures Resident Evil games will continue to suck


I don't think I'm going to finish Resident Evil 6. It sucks.

I'm almost at a loss for words here. I'm truthfully struggling to put my feelings on the computer screen right now. I just don't know where to begin. I haven't even fully identified what went wrong. I've got my ideas but no...   more

Help, help! I'm being repressed!

Mandatory Monty Python reference! Hold on a minute... let me put down this cooking pot, untie my apron, put on some lipstick, ask my husband for permission to write this blog and vent a bit. Dammit! Why the hell didn't so...   more



I am excited and depressed. I've pre-ordered my Wii U.

Excited about finally getting to play Nintendo games in HD. Depressed about paying $350 for a tablet with no mutli-touch and Xbox 360 graphics. Excited to have the opportunity to play Zombie U. Depressed because it's only O...   more

I am excited and depressed. I've pre-ordered my Wii U.


I threw my husband off a cliff!

Yes, yes I did! I picked him up, carried him to the cliff edge... and tossed him off!! My husband and I had an argument about him wanting to buy a new car. He wants to buy a sports car that we don't need, because we alrea...   more



Examining why I don't play video games much anymore AKA Getting Deep on Your A**

As I recently mentioned (in one of my previous blog posts) I don't play video games a whole lot anymore. There are a whole host of reasons for this, including but not limited to: Having a 3rd child Getting into other thi...   more
