MidBoss‘ upcoming cyberpunk adventure game Read Only Memories – or ROM – is due for release next year, and, to give would-be players a little taste of what’s to come, they’ve released a playable demo over on their website - and we’ve taken a look to tell you what you can expect from this teaser.

In ROM, you find yourself on the cusp of a story of intrigue and secrets as a cute personal helper robot which has broken into your home informs you that his owner, a former friend of yours, has disappeared under mysterious circumstances. As a journalist in Neo-San Francisco in 2064, you are best placed (according to Turing, the aforementioned robot casually disregarding property laws) to find out what happened to your friend.

Turns out Toads, the fungus-like denizens of the Mushroom Kingdom, don’t have any clearly defined genders. At least not according to Koichi Hayashida, producer of the upcoming Wii U exclusive Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. During an interview with Gamespot, Hayashida shed a bit of light on how the development team views the species’ sexes and opened the door to some interesting interpretations.

Dale Lazarov is a gay comics writer, well known in gay-geek circles as being the smut lord responsible for unleashing hardcover and digital gay comics like MANLY, BULLDOGS and STICKY into our world, available over at http://www.dalelazarov.com/. Since his most recent release “Second Chances” with Foxy Andy and William O. Tyler came out last month, we caught up with him to talk a little about his new comic, his approach on creating comics and the politics involved, as well as getting a glimpse of what Dale’s bringing into being in the near future.

Fair warning: there are some NSFW links and discussion below, as well as some (censored) NSFW images!

Our buddies over at Geeks OUT have just launched a massive Kickstarter campaign to create Flame Con, New York City’s first LGBTQ comic convention! But it’s not just comics, because their release describes the event as “a one-day comics, arts, and entertainment expo showcasing dozens of creators and celebrities from all corners of LGBTQ geek fandom, including comics, videogames, film, and television.”

Since 2010, Geeks OUT has been hosting events for the LGBTQ geek community and establishing queer-positive spaces for fans at comic conventions. (I volunteer at their New York Comic Con booth every year!) But for 2015, they want to invite everyone to Flame Con!

While normally we encourage a wide variety of viewpoints, including ones we may not agree with, to be shared on our posts we do not want to risk the safety of our readers, community members, or contributors. However it would be irresponsible of us to not comment on the issue at all, both as an LGBT-focused gaming site and as a gaming site at all. For anyone who has been lucky enough to avoid the GamerGate story thus far, here is a recap via the Washington Post that manages to cover things.]

I want to open with a nice, objective statement that I can be sure won’t dissuade specific groups of people from reading on ahead, taking the time to read what I’m saying, and critically engaging with the points I’m raising: but to be honest, fuck GamerGate, and fuck the people who choose to align themselves with it in spite of all the horrendous things it’s been responsible for.

When we last encountered Coming Out On Top here at Gaygamer, Obscurasoft had just delayed the gay dating sim’s release and offered backers a beta to apologize, and to whet their appetites for its eventual drop date.

Recently confirming December 10 for the game’s release, Obscurasoft has offered players another – this time spoiler-heavy – beta that delves deeper into the game’s stories and characters.  A few months ago I described the game as playful and promising; follow along after the jump for my final pre-release impressions.  I’ve tried to minimize the spoilers…a couple of images could be considered beans-spilling, but only about characters it’s pretty clear are on the menu from the start.
