Star Wars Battlefront: A New Hope for Improvements

This April, Star Wars Celebration, a giant fan gathering that celebrates, you guessed it , Star Wars, is almost upon us  and with it new news about  DICE’s ‘Star Wars: Battlefront‘. Right now we know nothing about the new game besides that it part of the game will include events from the upcoming seventh entry into the storied science fiction/fantasy film series, The Force Awakens.  As a Star Wars fan I’m going to say something a bit blasphemous, The ‘Star Wars Battlefront‘ series is on the lower rung on my list of favorite Star Wars games.  The series has always been hit Read more »

Welcome to the Puritanical Gaming Movement, please enjoy your stay.,

It’s been awhile, I’ve just started working a second job to support my “lavish” lifestyle. While I was busy slaving away for the man, apparently about two weeks ago, my favorite person in the world, Anita Sarkeesian, had some kind of get together with video-game developers in New York City, right in my backyard! according to a Kotaku article, Ms. Sarkeesian had a bit to say about how she wanted video-games to change or better yet “8 Things Game devs can do to make things less shitty for women” The list has been conveniently posted down below for you, dear Read more »

PS4 version of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round features more “realistic breasts”

I’ve been a long time fan of the Dead or Alive series, I started with 3 on the original X Box, dove head first into ‘Dimensions‘ on the Nintendo 3DS and happily threw down in DOA 5 on 360 and DOA 5 Plus on the PlayStation Vita (cue Amazing Grace).Hell, I even dabbled a little bit in the first ‘Extreme Beach Volleyball’ and I swear the Volleyball parts are actually why I played the game!.

That GamerGate inspired episode of Law and Order is out..

I mean, really I’m not making this stuff up. From Ice-T spouting explanations for “camping” and Read more »

The Justice League Covers Gamer Gate Pt. 2: The culture of infallibility that surrounds Anita Sarkeesian

Anita and the culture of shaming that shields Her A petition involving a well-known developer and Anita Sarkeesian began floating around the internet a few days ago. It was apparently about having Anita ousted from her role as an advisor on the development team that is currently working on ‘Mirrors Edge 2.’ “Alright,” I thought to myself. “What is she doing being an advisor on a videogame?” I decided to sign the petition. What I did not realize was that site would then post that link to my personal facebook. It wasn’t until I received my first comment that I Read more »
