In-Game Identity: Gender

For this piece, I spoke to numerous people of all genders, pulled from a variety of different gaming communities on the web. All of my respondents were between the ages of 15 and 35, and a majority of them had grown up with games like LoZ and considered themselves to fit within the parameters of a “gamer”.

Metro: Last Light – Is It Worth Buying?

While the story and visuals of BioShock Infinite can certainly be works of art, the box cover is anything but. It's a generic image of a male protagonist with a gun over his shoulder as he stares off into the distance. It's a safe cover design that appeals to the general gaming crowd, but fails to indicate the atmosphere of the game. Fortunately, Irrational Games has provided eight alternative covers for “B ...

Starcraft 2: Heart Of The Swarm Review

Starcraft 2: Heart Of The Swarm Intro Kerrigan is back and she is out for blood in the new Starcraft 2 expansion, Heart of the Swarm, athough really, saying this is an expansion is a bit of an understatement. In the age of DLC for just about every high profile game, I appreciate that Blizzard takes its expansions so seriously and gives us so much for our money.
