I never really play games in the dark. I'll just pass out. And I am generally over Horror games at this point. More into using gaming to relax than to get tense and stressed.

The Clusterf*** that is Gamergate: An outsiders perspective.

I was trying to find a clever #Gamergate related image to use for this post, but I stumbled upon this one, and I liked the simplicity of it. THIS is what gaming is about. People playing games together! Genders be damned. We all love gaming!

Then when a section of the gaming community came out in… » 10/20/14 7:32pm Monday 7:32pm

I'll tell you what, I've played some pretty fucked up games in my time. Manhunt, is among my favorite Stealth games of all time, for example.
