Well good weekend everyone!

So Anita Sarkeesian released another video, which cheeky scamp Steven Hansen shared with the oh-so-level headed Dtoid bunch. It's like waiting on the next instalment of a well loved webisode to a sci-fi...only it's not well loved.


No one likes this show right?

Regardless of your opinions on her opinions, people are kinda straying off the beaten to death path. Be you pro-Sark or anti-Sark, be you a bottle of vinegar or a tramp under a bridge (those two are connected, you'd see that if you didn't hate genders) - then you need to realise that we're talking about the same issue in a constant loop, only time and social media has increased the sheer rage and fury that accompanies it.

Sexism is wrong, bigotry and phobia is wrong. That's the basics, that's the truth. We need to stop rehashing and start actually doing something. Game companies need to start implementing equality in gaming, especially as it should be the easiest thing in the world to do.



New consoles will come and go, but hate will always remain. Unless we just y'know, stop.

*read that in Enya's voice, it might sound a bit more meaningful and wise*

In other news, for those that don't know and those that do, I tried to organise a charity event in London that focused on inclusion for disabled gamers. I had everything but the advertisement support and it got too close, with too few numbers so I cancelled the event. Still a little bit of money was raised and donated to the charity and I am glad for that at least.



To anyone out there with free time and who want to do something really groovy, that will mean a lot to others, I'd suggest volunteering or getting involved. It doesn't consume too much time or your life. I volunteer as a reader in a school (fuck yeah The Bear and the Bee is a great book) and also as a scribe for disabled students. I do it mainly because I have a lot of free time, but it does make me feel like I'm helping and you get to meet amazing people and share amazing stories. If you want to donate to charities, even a few quid does indeed make all the difference.

Anyway lets roll out with some recaps.

This makes me feel funny in the pants

R - Someday I'll get to finish Alpha Protocol, once I get past the stage where my character fused to an enemy's face





M - I actually didn't know Scuba Steve was a music teacher, but HE IS and he wants to tell you about something a bit disheartening





R - Such a potty mouth

R - Diego Vallejos wants you to check yo damn portholes PS4 owners

L - Xbox One wants your mother and ALIENGOSLING cares





The only fail this week was whoever removed that blog post where we could ring up legit sexdolls for companionship. Mods are fascist love haters!

Glowbear- Don't touch me unless I'm asleep and vunerable

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Overcoming Fear

We’ve all been there. A game presents us with a moment or situation that fills us with dread. It could be the inexorable approach of a supernatural menace or looking down from the top of an impossibly tall building. Games will play on your fears and push you. But how do you overcome and prevail?

In honor of the ween of hallow and the month of October, the Bloggers Wanted prompt is all about “overcoming your fears in video games.” How did you face the digital demons and pixel poltergeists? Did climbing in Assassin’s Creed make you feel dizzy? Or do underground levels make you feel like you can’t breathe? Everyone has this moment in gaming. You can scoff at the mirror room in Silent Hill 3 but break out into a cold sweat if you see a clown. So what do you do to get past this? Have any tricks of the trade or anecdotes that you’ve picked up along the way? We want to hear about it.

Take us to your moment and how you dealt with that fear. Let us see into your heart and reach out to touch the quiet truth of your words. All you have to do is write your story in the Cblogs and format the title as “Overcoming Fear: [your blog title here].” It's delightfully easy. You may even find your story promoted to the Front Page. That’s always a treat.

You’ve overcome this fear. You have this story, this moment. Why not share it with us? Maybe your story can help someone else overcome their fear.
