This year at E3 I had the pleasure to meet one of the most influential people in the Super Smash Bros. Community, Wynton “Prog” Smith. Though our interaction was brief, we’ve been in touch ever since and he has been an absolute joy to talk to. Now that the dust has settled from E3, GaymerX, and EVO, I was able to pick his brain a bit about his thoughts on the E3 Smash Bros. demo, the Smash Invitational, and the game’s ever growing community. So lets get into it.

Hope you all enjoyed your Fourth of July vacations! I did, and now I’m back after a week off with another vidcast! Make the jump to watch this episode where I rave about the new movie I saw, reveal the quirky new game I’m kind of obsessed with, and then talk about my trepidation to start another one. (Even though I just bought two games on sale with no idea when I’m ever going to get around to actually playing them!)

GaymerX 2 has officially begun! Following last night’s VIP Party and this morning’s Opening Ceremonies, the doors of the Intercontinental Hotel in downtown San Francisco have swung open to welcome hoards of queer geeks into its halls. The second year of the first ever LGBTQ-centric gaming convention has a veritable ton of things to do, people to meet, and games to play, as evidenced by their jam packed schedule.

If you’re at the con and not entirely sure what to see this weekend, not to worry, here’s a rundown of some of the weekend’s must-see events!

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!

D&D’s Bumpy Road to Inclusion

(A word of caution. Some of the links to articles contained within contain strong language.)

On Tuesday, Wizards of the Coast released the free basic rules to the fifth and newest edition of the most popular RPG franchise, Dungeons & Dragons. Inside, aspiring adventurers and dungeon masters can find rules on how to create adventurers who are devout Clerics, brawny Fighters, devious Rogues, or worldly Wizards, and then tells them how to go out into the world, slay monsters, collect treasure, and become ever stronger.

It also included something new in a D&D product, something that gave me pause when I saw it for the first time. In fact, I didn’t actually believe it when I first saw it. The passage in question is a mere two paragraphs filed under “Sex” (as in one’s biological sex), but the content of those paragraphs are stunning to anyone used to tabletop RPGs.
