Dear Diary,

We had a little unexpected exit this week, but I’m not that heartbroken about it. Plus, we finished the awesome project we’d been working on (it was mostly me fishing up a lot of sharks to pay it off, but I guess some of the others helped a little bit…), which you’ll see later on!

There was also the usual weirdness, like the letter I got that read: “Dear Chris, A dark shadow was following me down our street the other day. I started to run, but it turns out it was just your dad. Still scary, though. – Mom” She included a lantern, which ties in nicely. But maybe she should have kept it for herself in case Dad sneaks up on her again…

Season Two of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead is nearing its climax, and things are getting seriously ugly. With Episode 4: Amid The Ruins, there are a few shockers, but also some quiet moments where you can reflect on how you got where you are and what exactly you did to get there. My spoiler-free review is after the jump!

Dear Diary,

Well, it was a relatively easy week in Geneva. Not too much drama. A little panic, but then ended really well. I’ll explain as we go!

Back during E3 Square-Enix slyly announced that their recently rebooted MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV would be introducing marriage, both gay and straight, to the game. This move came as a welcome surprise for many gaymers, following a series of banned forum posts regarding same-sex marriage during the game’s beta-testing phase. A GM responded to the issue, but the game’s development teams stayed mostly quiet on the issue until the big marriage announcement in June.

To celebrate the new nuptual options, and to thank the developers for making a more inclusive choice, the Rough Trade Gaming Community held the first ever Eorzean pride march in Final Fantasy XIV.

Indie Darlings: Shovel Knight

Now and again we feature indie games of note, either for their content relevant to LGBT2SQ* communities, or just because.  Welcome to Indie Darlings:  Shovel Knight Edition.

It would have been easy for Shovel Knight to be a derivative nostalgia pile on, a sort of rosy-coloured 8-bit bukakke.  The hunger for all things old-school is ferocious right now – from Capcom’s Mega Man 9 & 10, to Nintendo’s NES Remixes and resurrection of side-scrolling Mario, to Ubisoft’s reverent love letter to incredibad 80s action movies in Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.  The market’s clearly there as children of the 8- and 16-bit eras are sprouting grey hair and lapping up reminders of their misty youths and the delightful, punishing, delicious and delirious games that once sustained them.
