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 b...   more



How Persona 3 made me tear up a little.

I finally got around to finishing Persona 3 Fes[t]. Outside of the members of SEES, the characters were a bit more shallow than those in 4, but at the same time, less overtly optimistic. Some cha...   more

Virtue's Last Reward: What did you predict?

I finally finished Virtue's Last reward. First of all, it was great. Second of all, it wasn't as good as 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors. Third, there are spoilers galore after the big bold warning bel...   more

Virtue's Last Reward: Playing an Idiot Savant

I don't think too highly of my intelligence. It's probably above average, but I would likely be spending more time developing new technologies or something equally productive and impressive if...   more

Virtue's Last Reward: Playing an Idiot Savant


There is no time limit on spoilers.

Recently, I finally finished reading through my first visual novel, 999: 9 hours 9 persons 9 doors, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The puzzle sections were just long enough and satisfyi...   more

It's raining, it's nearly midnight: let's talk about Persona 4.

It's been raining for a few days, non-stop, in my little corner of Colorado. The flooding is so bad that I had to build a dam. The fog has already begun to set in, and it's supposedly going to co...   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 ...   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 bac...   more



Tom Nook is not a loan shark

Earlier this week, I purchased my first ever Shim Megami Tensei game. Concurrent with that purchase, and my previous purchase of the latest Fire Emblem, was a $30 credit in the Nintendo eShop. Ea...   more

Tom Nook is not a loan shark


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

This started as a response to 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 plea...   more



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

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 Baldur's Gate 2. In Dragon Age: Origins, dumped me after beco...   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 undeci...   more



Building a PC 3: Flesh and Blood

That cutout is positioned right behind the CPU socket on most boards, and this allows easy access for the installation of backplates for after-market coolers ("after-market coolers" are CPU ...   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 comp...   more



Building a PC 2: Bones and Cartilage

and as you can see, it's a big "but"—while 80 Plus certification cannot be said to be entirely meaningless, it does have a whole lot of marketing nonsense behind it. The test conditions are u...   more

The Basics of Building a PC

: News about GTX 780 dropping today adds an attractive new option for graphics cards. Info about graphics card benchmarks also added. With the reveal of the next Xbox and a variety of not-so-fri...   more

Bioshock Infinite and its frustrating imperfections

Before you say anything: don't worry. It's still okay to be talking about Bioshock: Infinite. Bioshock has never been a series I find particularly impressive from a gameplay perspective. The...   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...   more



Princess Zelda is a Total Badass

In the stealth game--your "Thief", your "Mark of the Ninja", your "Deus Ex: Human Revolution"--the ultimate challenge comes in the form of ghosting. As the name implies, the challenge to the play...   more

Stranger in a Strange Land 1: Final Fantasy VII

First, a list of the games in no particular order, games that all have something ephemeral in common for me: EarthBound Final Fantasy VII Castlevania: SOTN Super Metroid Thief II: The Metal Age ...   more

Objectification ≠ Fantasizing

I haven't been around for various reasons, but when I saunter in once more, there's a familiar refrain droning on very much in the foreground. Something needs to be cleared up. It has become cle...   more

Objectification ≠ Fantasizing


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 outrigh...   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...   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 on...   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 alwa...   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 previo...   more



Needless Exposition and the Sciencey-Wiencey

I am a monkey. In the literal sense, yes, in that eosimias were monkeys, so my ancestors were monkeys, and you don't stop being what your ancestors were, but also in the figurative sense in that...   more

Sexism: Et tu, Japan?

Recently, there has been quite the falderal over the adorably juvenile and relentlessly Japanese game . Many people have been making a fuss about the game being indicative of endemic sexism in Ja...   more

Gaming Porn for Women

Last year for Valentine's Day my husband got me a funny little book called " and included really nice pictures of guys saying things like "" or "". It was cute and I thought it would be fun to ...   more



Games for adults

I've been unable to pursue my favorite hobbies in any capacity for about a week now. Procrastination has a way of causing work to amalgamate into a Final Fantasy style demon wall. It's a habit th...   more
