The GayGamer.net team is here at E3 2013 in Los Angeles, and we’ll be bringing you all the biggest games and stories from the convention all week long. Given that we’ll be having a lot more posts than normal, use this one as a hub for all...
Massive Chalice, if you haven’t heard of it, is the latest game coming from the fancy folks over at Double Fine. It’s a little difficult to pin down what type of game it will be, but in their words, it’s “If turn-based tactics...
Today I was fortunate enough to come across a delightful video in which Ellen Mclain, the voice of Portal’s GLaDOS, bakes a cake. Whether or not the cake is a lie is still tbd, but the question remains: Why is Ms. Mclain baking a delicious conf...
Last week many in the gay gaming world were shocked to find that a Facebook game recreating the horrifying events in Tblisi, Georgia had been created. The game, titled Call of Taburetka, featured an Orthodox Georgian priest taking on hoards of LGBT r...

Last week in Tbilisi, Georgia (the country north of Turkey, not the state) an LGBT rally, gathered in celebration of International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, was met with brutal opposition by conservative protestors, led by authorities o...
GamerPrint has always done some beautiful work, creating gamer-inspired designs for prints, posters, shirts and hoodies. They apparently reached out to their Facebook and Twitter followers to see what game they most wanted a design for, and apparently Shadow of the Colossus was the clear winner. How they’ve never done a Shadow of the Colossus design before now is beyond me, but what they’ve come up with is right up there with some of their best.
You can get it on a T-shirt, hoodie or iPhone case by clicking here to buy (and peruse their other designs). They might seem a little pricey, but this is a UK-based company, so you’re paying import prices in the US. Still, their designs are great, so when they’ve got one for one of your favorite games (like perhaps Shadow of the Colossus), it’s worth it!
Son Of Nor is a third-person action/adventure game set on a desert world where humans are being driven to extinction by a reptilian race called the Sarahul. The unique aspect of this title is the usage of powers that include telekinesis, magic spells and terraforming in both combat and puzzle-solving. You can rip chunks of rock out of canyon walls to throw at enemies or use as platforms to traverse gaps, or use terraforming to create dunes that hide you from enemies or allow you to reach previously-unaccessible levels, or just create a giant pit that swallows your enemies whole. It allows you to mix and match your powers to play the game in a way that suits your style, from stealthy to action-oriented.
There is also a co-op multiplayer mode where up to four players can join forces, and that mode will include many different puzzles and situations that will require more than one person to complete.
Son Of Nor is being developed for PC, Mac and Linux, and a pledge of $20 or more will get you a digital copy of the game. Higher pledges naturally include more swag, like a collector’s edition, your name on the Wall of Heroes in a city in the game, or the ability to design and name one of the NPCs in the game or even become a playable character yourself! For full details including extensive video diaries, you can visit their Kickstarter page here. And donate, if you’d like to support a fellow gaymer’s project!
If you’re looking for some more information on the soon-to-be-released Animal Crossing: New Leaf… well, you’re in luck!
If you’re looking for me to talk about something else… well, you’re probably better off waiting until next week, because New Leaf has pretty much taken over my life, and I haven’t spent much time on anything else. Sorry! But if you want more details about how awesome New Leaf is, and a peek at my pretty pink house, make the jump and watch the video!
Well, I made the big move to Geneva this week. It was hard saying good-bye to my friends in Narnia (especially since I didn’t really have the ability to bid anyone farewell), but I’m ready to turn over a New Leaf(get it?) and for my new adventure to begin.
Of course, whenever you first move to a new Animal Crossing town, there’s a ton of new stuff to do, so this entry is going to be a really long one! Sorry in advance!
Our friends over at Geeks OUT have launched their Skip Ender’s Game campaign. We here at the GayGamer Castle are no strangers to the controversial sci-fi author and his homophobic opinions, having stirred up some drama with the 2009 release of Shadow Complex. Now, his most famous novel, Ender’s Game, is set to be one of this year’s biggest blockbusters.
Geeks OUT would like you to not line the NOM-board member’s pockets with money by not only skipping the film, but speaking out about it. (This is me doing my part right here, I suppose…) They have a whole website set up where you can sign the Skip Ender’s Game pledge. And on Friday, November 1, they suggest attending a Skip Ender’s Game event with your friends instead of seeing the movie. Geeks OUT will be holding events in Chicago, Dallas, New York, Orlando, Seattle and Toronto, but there’s nothing stopping you from putting your own together if you don’t live in one of those areas.
Of course, it’s completely up to you whether or not you want to speak with your wallet this fall. Sure, your $15 may only amount to a drop in Ender’s Game‘s box office ocean, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s the principle of the thing. I won’t be buying a ticket to this movie or a copy of his Superman comic. Your mileage may vary, however. To each their own.
It looks as if Telltale Games has done it again. They impressively recreated the look of the source material for The Walking Dead, and based on these screenshots for The Wolf Among Us, they’ve managed to recreate the comic book look brilliantly once more!
Based on the Vertigo comic series FABLES, the story is set in a New York City where fairy tale characters are living among humans. Releasing this summer on PC, Mac and consoles, The Wolf Among Us is a prequel to the comic, and has you playing Bigby Wolf and dealing with folks like a chain-smoking Little Pig and a Mr. Toad who steals cars for his wild rides. They’ve got the look down pat, so the only question remains is whether or not they’ve got the story to go with it. (I have faith, though!)
Bethesda announced quite the blast from the past today with the reveal of Wolfenstein: The New Order, due out towards the end of this year. Personally, I wasn’t into PC gaming when Wolfenstein basially created the super-popular FPS genre. I think my first shooter was actually Doom. But hey — Nazis are always a great villain.
“We are excited to bring a new chapter of Wolfenstein to gamers everywhere,” said Jens Matthies, creative director at MachineGames. “As fans of the series, working on this game is an honor, and our team is driven to create an unforgettable action-adventure experience that will make FPS fans proud.”
Judging from the deliberately teasing trailer above, it seems to me like you’re going to be playing as a WWII soldier who is awoken in present day where Nazis have taken over the world. I mean, that’s what I got from it. I could be wrong, but I hope not — that sounds like a premise with a lot of promise! And I’m cautiously excited for this one because MachineGames was founded by members of Starbreeze Studios, and they were responsible for The Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay and TheDarkness. So they know shooters! (Seriously, Riddick was great!)
More information on Wolfenstein: The New Order will be forthcoming shortly, so we’ll see if I’m on the wrong track. The game is set to appear on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and “next generation consoles,” whatever that means. Wii U? Perhaps. More likely versions for the PS4 and Xbox Whatever-they’re-going-to-call-it when they’re released.
