E3 2014: Batman: Arkham Knight 6

[editor’s note: Arkham Knight is the fourth, not third, installment of the Batman Arkham series. Thanks commenter Gyro for the correction.] The bat is back for his third installment in the Arkham series with Batman: Arkham Knight, and it looks to be more of all the glorious same that made […]

E3 2014: Civilization: Beyond Earth Shoots for the Stars

The last time Civilization was taken into space, we got the amazing game Alpha Centauri. Since then, players have been dreaming of taking their civilizations back among the stars. Well, the wait will soon be over. Civilization: Beyond Earth, created by Firaxis Games, will take the experience back off world. The game […]

Tropes Vs. Women in Video Games: Women as Background Decoration Part 1 4

E3 2014 was huge, and we here at GayGamer will be continuing our coverage all week long! But let’s take a quick break from the show’s big announcements to check out the latest entry in Anita Sarkeesian’s Tropes Vs. Women in Video Games series. In this episode she begins exploring […]

E3 2014: Dragon Age: Inquisition 1

Dragon Age: Inquisition was one of those games that I greeted with immediate cynicism. While I only got a taste of Origins (any devs wanna donate a copy?), I bought Dragon Age 2 based on that limited experience, but grew increasingly disillusioned with each copy-pasted dungeon I explored, Isabella’s puns of “I […]

E3 2014: Wootini’s Weekly Video Podcast #177

This week’s episode is a lot longer than usual, but that’s because I had E3 3014 to talk about. And I can’t do that all by myself… I had to bring in some support staff! So I sat down with some of my gaymer friends to hash out the highlights […]



E3 2014: Mortal Kombat X gets really, really close 1

The latest Mortal Kombat is all about getting nice and close with you. My extremely brief (and very wide-eyed) hands-off demo with the game at E3 took place over two fights showcasing the new fighting style variants and characters. But one aspect not advertised during the show is the closer camera. […]


E3 2014: Surgeon Simulator is Opening a New Practice on PS4 1

[NOTE: All screenshots are from the PC version of the game] It’s not often that a game being as bad as you remember is a selling point. Surgeon Simulator, the self-proclaimed “most Monty Python game anyone ever did”, recently announced a move to the PlayStation 4. I had the chance to […]

Wootini’s Weekly Animal Crossing Diary 1

Dear Diary, While everyone else gets to live it up at E3, I was living my regular little life and enjoying the fun in Geneva. There was a lot of time capsule action, and weirdly… no new resident. I’m a little worried that it’s been a long time since Chow […]



E3 2014: Square Enix Brings Same-Sex Marriage to Final Fantasy XIV 4

Square Enix disappointed me at this year’s E3. Their lineup looked remarkably similar to last year’s, and the highly anticipated (and eight years in development) Final Fantasy XV as well as Kingdom Hearts III were absolutely nowhere to be found. Instead we got an HD remake of a bunch of […]


E3 2014: Splatoon, Nintendo’s Adorable Answer to Shooters

This E3 was swamped with new shooters: Tom Clancy’s The Division, Battlefield Hardline, Halo 5: Guardians, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, and many more. While these games are assured moneymakers, they are hardly innovative and fresh. “Hey look! You’re a nondescript white guy shooting up someone in a brand new […]
