It has just come to my attention that our server provider is shutting down. They've been great, but they are ultimately another casualty of Hurricane Sandy. I have until Monday morning to try to copy our data elsewhere. I'm going to try to bring the site back, but at this time I cannot make any promises. So, if you find the site unreachable, this is why. Thank you to everyone who made GayGamer what it was. Feel free to contact me if you want to help bring things back.

It was a nice and relaxing week in Narnia this time around, thank goodness. I mean, we had a little bit of drama, but that's par for the course with this crew. And we may be saying good-bye to someone, but it's a newbie, so... whatever.

Sorry, this one's a little longer than I had planned because while I tried keeping my New Year's resolution by finishing a game, I also broke my promise and bought a couple more. So I have kind of a lot to cover this week! Click play and share my shame!

It's the dawn of a new year in Narnia, and there's already a lot going on, so there's no time to waste!

Unfortunately, my plan to review The Walking Dead episode by episode was derailed by both Telltale Games' erratic release schedule and the fact that I fell prey to the vicious bug in Episode 4 that wouldn't retain your game save. Thankfully, that bug was finally fixed, and I was able to complete Episode 4 at long last, and then plow through Episode 5 in one sitting.
So I'm not calling this a review, because it's really not. Episode by episode, The Walking Dead maintained the quality of its first episode, and in some places, surpassed it by leaps and bounds. While for me, Episode 3 will remain the high point of the game, taken as a whole, the entire experience is tour-de-force of gut-wrenching storytelling. Therefore, I have thoughts.
Which you will find after the jump! (Obviously spoilers abound, so if you haven't played, beware!)

Happy New Year, gay gamers!
Much shorter vidcast this week, as I just quickly run down some highlights of my gay/gaming Christmas presents, and then talk about some gaming New Years resolutions. Did you guys get anything awesome And what are your resolutions?
December 28, 2012
Well, this week was Christmas in Narnia, so there's a lot to get to. No time to waste!
If you've been curious as to why Telltale Games' The Walking Dead has been winning so many awards for being awesome, but didn't want to drop any money on it, now's your chance. As part of their Deal a Day countdown to 2013, Microsoft has put the first episode of the adventure game series on sale at a massive discount. That's right: Today, you can download The Walking Dead: Episode One for free!
The subsequent four episodes are all on sale as well, for 50% off, bringing them down to 200 Microsoft Points. So why not give it a try? And if you like it, you can grab all the episodes for half off. That's a grand total of $10 for the whole five episode series, which is the cheapest I've ever seen!

It's a long one this time, folks, but that's because it's the 100th episode spectacular! As a special holiday treat, I celebrate the anniversary by answering all of your questions! (Well, at least the ones some of you sent in!)
So happy holidays, and I'll see you after Christmas! Thanks for watching!
December 21, 2012
Well, as Narnia geared up for the holidays this week, it was all fun and laughter (and a bit of scandal)... until tragedy struck!

I told you guys all about my experience with Nintendo TVii at a press event a while back, but now the service is getting ready to launch, and those of you with Wii U's will be able to start using it tomorrow, December 20. (Of course, I'm sure a lengthy system update will be required...)
"After Dec. 20, you'll never look at your TV the same way again," said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. "Wii U owners have already experienced the transformative effect that the GamePad has on game play and social interaction. Nintendo TVii shows how the integrated second screen of the GamePad can also transform and enhance the TV viewing experience. Welcome to the new world of TVii."
Yeah, well, we'll see. All I got to experience was a demo, so it's hard to say exactly how this is going to play out. I'm sure it will be a work in progress, as Nintendo adjusts the social media aspects and whatnot to streamline the experience. I have to say I'm slightly concerned about that part seeing how slightly unintuitive the Wii U apps have been so far. The idea of using the Nintendo TVii app to basically find the video content you're in the mood for is solid, but we'll see how well it actually works in practice.
When Nintendo TVii launches tomorrow in the United States and Canada, it will only support cable and satellite providers in both regions as well as Amazon Instant Video and Hulu Plus in the US. They'll be integrating Netflix and TiVo in early 2013, they're estimating.
Thing is, there's no charge for Nintendo TVii. All it will cost you is the time it takes to download the app. Using it is just part of the Wii U experience. So why not give it a try? I know I will be... and obviously I'll put together my impressions for you after I've had a go!

Well, we're coming up on a major milestone for this video podcast of mine, and I'm asking you all for help in doing something a little different for #100. Because otherwise, it's just going to be the same as usual, like this week, where I talk about chatting on the Wii U, pay-to-play karaoke on the Xbox 360, and more!
And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
