Born from yet another foot-in-mouth moment from Penny Arcade’s Mike Krahulik (“Gabe”), the PAX East Diversity Lounge was mired in controversy from its inception. Was it a genuine attempt to bring attention to marginalized groups, or just a face-saving measure? Happily, I can report first-hand that the inaugural Diversity Lounge was quite successful at bringing much-needed attention to marginalized communities of gamers, and the people I spoke to there agreed.

“I’m actually very impressed,” admitted Samson Romero from Toronto Gaymers. “We didn’t know what to expect from PAX East, to be honest. But the support here is so amazing.”

Shake Your Bon Bon To This SingStore Update!

Well, Singstar is calling this the “April SingStore Update,” which leads me to believe that they have officially made the switch from fortnightly updates to monthly ones. Oh well, as long as they keep coming, it’s hard to complain too much. And this update is actually pretty good (with one major caveat I’ll get to later):

“Pure Shores” by All Saints
“Cruel Summer’ by Bananarama
“Picking Up The Pieces” by Paloma Faith
“Shake Your Bon Bon” by Ricky Martin
“You Keep Me Hanging On” by The Supremes
“Wild Thing” by The Troggs
“Hook Me Up” by The Veronicas

Now, The Veronicas are awesome, but I’ve already got that song in Lips. Same with “You Keep Me Hanging On.” “Pure Shores” is good, but nothing I want to sing, but I may eventually cave and pick up “Wild Thing” just for the ridiculous fun of it. However, I am all over Bananarama, but God help me if I’m tempted to download “Shake Your Bon Bon!” The out and proud Ricky Martin is super hot, but that song is almost too cheesy  — even for me!

The caveat is that the European update contains two songs from Dire Straits — “Sultans Of Swing” and “Money For Nothing” — that for licensing reasons aren’t available in the US. Hopefully they’re not lying when they say they’re working on it and hope to include them in a future update, because that would be sweet!
