Dear Diary,

I forgot that even though I celebrate a holiday in the real world, Geneva doesn’t do the same. Oops. And while I stopped one person from moving away, I decided to let another one go. If you love something set it free, and all that… Or if you’re just not that invested in someone, set them free…

Anyway, there’s plenty of silliness again, so read on!

Dear Diary,

I’m writing this entry a little early because of the holiday weekend. But even though it wasn’t an entire seven days since my last entry, don’t think there’s not a whole lot of activity in Geneva to write about! Read on and you’ll see what I mean!

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 >>

Earlier this month, Jeremy Beare (the founder of Grandpa Pixel) approached us about his budding new indie RPG trilogy Legena. Beare promises an authentic traditional RPG-ing experience with a compelling dark story and unique characters and settings. He particularly emphasized a focus on LGBTQ characters and themes. The following is excerpted from an interview I conducted with Beare himself.

Meet Dorian, Dragon Age: Inquisition’s “Fully-Gay” Mage

While checking out Dragon Age: Inquisition at E3 this year we were introduced to a number of new characters, including the charming mage Dorian. The quick-witted party member was a standout from the moment he appeared on screen. I couldn’t help but shake the feeling that this mustachioed magic-man had a little….something else, going on. My video game gaydar (gaymedar?) may not always be on point, but I have to admit it was going off. From the stache to the sass; he felt like the kind of guy you’d meet at a gay bar in San Francisco. What’s more the game is already boasting a rather diverse party lineup, a rare find when dealing with high-fantasy. But then, I thought, most characters in the Dragon Age world are bisexual to some degree anyway, and didn’t think much more of it.

Then I wake up this morning to find that David Gaider, lead writer on the Dragon Age series, went and confirmed that Dorian is actually gay. “Fully-gay,” in fact.
