Vlogger Rantasmo has made a name for himself dissecting media that, as he puts it, ‘needs more gay’. In his aptly titled video series he carefully analyzes the queer content in all sorts of media from film to TV to, you guessed it, video games. In his latest episode he takes a look at Gone Home, the breakout indie title of 2014. In his review he addresses some common complaints against the The Fullbright Company’s gay friendly hit while also explaining why its 90s setting is an integral part of its queer themes.

It was previously reported that after only its second year the queer-friendly gaming convention GaymerX would be no more. Numerous reasons were cited for the con’s end, the biggest one being a significant lack of financial support from sponsors and game companies to help with the event’s already high costs. Running a game convention at a major hotel in one of the most expensive cities in the world is no small feat, and organizers Toni Rocca and Matt Conn have publicly shared their uncertainty of holding another con, let alone breaking even on the first two. Since then a number of game developers have stepped up with financial support for the convention.

Today it has been announced that GaymerX is coming back for a third year and will be rebranded as GX3: Everyone Games.

Longtime GayGamer readers are no doubt familiar with Luciano Costa, the openly gay face model for Mass Effect‘s Kaidan. When not helping save the universe from the Reapers or modeling that gorgeous face of his, Costa runs with the SoCal Social Club, organizing recreational and networking events for the LGBTQ community of Southern California. Today (well, yesterday) he joined the masses by participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

I know, I know….your internet has been clogged with these videos, but it’s all for a good cause and anyone with a crush on Kaidan will no doubt enjoy this one.

Oh my glob you guys, they really dated.

As first reported over on After Ellen, the popular Adventure Time ship of Princess Bubblegum and Marceline the Vampire Queen has been confirmed by the latter’s voice actress Olivia Olson as well as the show’s quirky creator Pendelton Ward. At a Barnes & Noble book signing for The Adventure Time Encyclopedia several of the show’s cast members were on hand, including Olson who addressed the highly speculated pairing.

“I was at the studio on Tuesday and [Pendelton Ward] was actually there because he was recording for Lumpy Space Princess and I wanted to ask him a lot of questions, because [Martin Olson is] trying to write the book and stuff so I wanted to pick Pen’s brain a little bit and he says, “Oh, you know they [Bubblegum and Marceline] dated, right?” And I said, “Well that’s what I figured from all the creepy fan art.”

Sunset Overdrive keeps on making me happy. This colorful, irreverent approach to shooters was one of very few things keeping me from falling asleep during this year’s E3 press conferences. Following E3, and the massive backlash Ubisoft saw for not including a playable female assassin in Assassin’s Creed Unity, developer Insomniac Games threw a bit of shade Ubisoft’s way by showcasing the ability to make one in this game. Today in the newest episode of Sunset TV, where Brandon Winfrey shares updates on the highly anticipated title, it was announced that characters can switch between genders at any time during the game.

While answering a question about the ability to modify a character’s appearance after their initial creation it was said that,

“You can change any part of your appearance at any time. So that means body type, skin tone, anything. So if you wanna be a girl one day, do it, and you can switch back to a guy the next.”
