FlameCon, a brand new LGBTQ-friendly comic convention in New York, is about to get its game on courtesy of our friends at GaymerX. The organizers of the first ever queer gaming con are teaming up with this new event to bring the gay gaming fun to the East Coast!
We talk about LGBT presence and representation in games from time to time here on this site; it’s kind of a “thing” that we do. Last month at GDC I had the distinct pleasure of being able to sit down with British Drag Queen Ms. Kitty Powers and talk with her […]
First I have an answer to a question someone asked in my YouTube comments, then I can talk about some bits from the last Nintendo Direct. I’m a little excited for anything new Animal Crossing-wise, naturally, and I really hope that these Animal Crossing amiibo cards aren’t anywhere as near […]
Dear Diary, Well, we had a holiday this week, so there’s more than the usual silliness to cover… let’s not waste any time!
In case you missed it, Nintendo just had a Direct on April 1st which was 100% NOT an April Fools Day Joke. We were finally given a release date for the Mewtwo DLC that was announced right before the Smash Wii U launch. He’ll be available April 15th for those […]

Going into effect July 1st, SB 101 prohibits the government (state or local) from ‘substantially burdening’ a person’s right to exercise their ‘religious beliefs’. While the wording of the bill contains no specifically anti-gay language, […]

Telltale Games’ Game of Thrones is one of their most frustrating products. It’s both one of the best series they’ve ever produced, but also one of their buggiest. On the plus side, after the disastrous Episode 2 where none of my choices from Episode 1 carried over, they patched it […]
