IeSF Hearthstone Tournament: No Girls Allowed, Blizzard Says Otherwise

E3, and Nintendo in particular, provided an uplifting experience this year when I started to see how many games were utilizing female protagonists. Lady gamers make up half the gaming audience, after all, so it was encouraging to see devs start adding that representation into their titles. Then I heard about Finland’s Assembly Summer 2014 and promptly headdesked so hard I may have suffered mild dain bramage. You see, Assembly hosts International e-Sports Federation (IeSF) tournaments, the winners of which will move on to this year’s international finals in Baku, Azerbaijan. IeSF, for whatever reason, has decided that there will be no women’s division for the Hearthstone competition, so therefore women can’t compete. Like, at all. MORE >>

Tecmo Koei and Nintendo have brought the Dynasty Warriors style combat to the world of Zelda in the upcoming Wii U title Hyrule Warriors. The developers already won me over with the game’s E3 demo by remaining faithful to Nintendo’s source material while putting their own spin on the franchise. Most importantly, I was gagging over them letting me play as Zelda.

With the equally gag worthy additions of Impa and Midna, two new playable female characters have been revealed.

Assassin’s Creed Unity May Not Have Female Assassins But Sunset Overdrive Sure Does

I LIVE for a good bit of game shade; when companies, developers, and other industry pros take their playful jabs at one another. Like when, during Sony’s E3 press conference, they made sure to point out that their camera peripheral, unlike a certain rival’s, was “always optional.” To be sure the entire GayGamer crew, front and center in the audience, gave them plenty of z-snaps. Or during our preview of Dragon Age: Inquisition when, on the heels of Ubisoft’s ‘women are too much work’ controversy, the first thing they said about the game was that women were playable. We see you game devs. And we thank you for all the sass.

So what bit of game-shade has me living today? Well this time it also has to do with Ubisoft (the easiest post-E3 target), and it coming from the always playful Insomniac Games.
