PAX East ’15: Cosplay Gallery #1

It’s no Comic Con, but PAX East draws its fair share of cosplayers, and this year was no exception. Here is the first gallery of 50+ pictures of some of the cosplay I got photos of. Sadly, it’s impossible to snap a photo of every amazing costume, but I got […]

Wootini’s Weekly Video Podcast #215 1

After an update on Dragon Age: Inquisition, which is still super fun even if I’ve leveled up so much that it’s not terribly challenging right now, I list the games I picked up during a crazy PSN Flash Sale that I can’t quite play yet. But there is one game […]


PAX East ’15: Roundup

There are tons of games on display at PAX East, so many that it’s pretty much impossible for one person to play them all. But I did manage to get my hands on a bunch, and I’ve already written about some of them. Here are the rest! Homesick caught my […]

PAX East ’15: The Diversity Lounge 2: Electric Boogaloo

The Diversity Lounge returned for a second year at PAX East 2015, but it was looking slightly different than its 2014 version. This time, the booths were running along the edge of the room with tables and bean bags in the center. This created a more inviting space for people […]

Wootini’s Weekly Video Podcast #214

Okay, look. Just try to ignore the doofy mustache. I went to an 80s-themed birthday party, and I thought it would be appropriate. So try not to let it distract you as I talk about trying to understand the political intrigue of Dragon Age: Inquisition, losing my 3DS stylus, Best […]


GDC ’15: Moral Choices And Difficult Characters

I swear, it seems like every panel I went to for this GDC had a perfect compliment, but these two were the absolute best matches: “Beyond Binary Choices: How Players Engage With Morality” and “Designing Morally Difficult Characters, Responsibly.” A morality system has been the go-to mechanic to give the […]

Dear Diary, Not too much to report this week, because I was really busy outside of Geneva this past weekend. But I still managed to accomplish a few things in town! Read on for the scoop!


PAX East ’15: Masquerada, a game about learning to be an ally

While checking out YIIK at the Ysbryd Games booth, it was suggested that I also check out Witching Hour Studios’ Masquerada over on the other side. I was told GayGamer.net readers would be interested in the game, but not why. When I investigated, it turns out that one of the […]

PAX East ’15: YIIK hands-on

The cartoony graphics of YIIK caught my eye as I passed the Ackk Studios booth at PAX East 2015, and then the surreal imagery and turn-based RPG battles locked in my interest. The game is a colorful RPG inspired by EarthBound and The Legend of Zelda which manages to create […]


PAX East ’15: Splatoon hands-on

Knowing full well that Splatoon would be one of the hotter tickets at the Nintendo booth — and all of PAX East 2015, for that matter — I made a point of getting in line early so I could get my hands on the upcoming Wii U shooter. And although […]
