Dear Diary,

I thought this week was going to be rather sedate, but then we had a holiday that I didn’t even realize was celebrated in Geneva! So yay for that! And it involves pinching, so that’s always fun! Well, unless you’re the one being pinched, I suppose… although maybe that could be good, too!

Spring may be still waiting in the wings in much of the United States, but in Geneva, it’s in full swing. And I even got a letter from Mom that read: “Darling Chris, The warm sun enticed me out onto the veranda this morning. Spring really has come, hasn’t it? I’ve waited so long. – Mom” It included some yellow violets, but I didn’t really care, because I was just so distracted by her use of the word “veranda.” I mean, really, Mom. Are you living in Gone With The Wind now?

Anyway, read on for this week’s emerald excitement!

Jem and the Holograms are Headed to the Big Screen

Just like everybody else in the world I take every opportunity to rag on Hollywood and its inability to do anything other than remakes and reboots. But, and this is a big Rob Kardashian-sized but: Jem and the Holograms is getting the live action movie treatment and I couldn’t possibly be more excited.

For those born after the 80s (or at least after VH1′s I Love the 80s brought the rest of us up to speed) Jem and the Holograms is an animated series about the utterly fabulous, and truly outrageous Jerrica Benton aka Jem. Using a holographic sentient AI called Synergy Jerrica transforms into the show’s titular rockstar to perform with her bandmates the Holograms. To put her into a 2014-context she’s the conceptual precursor to both Lady Gaga *and* Hannah Montana.

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 2 isn’t only about surviving. A gay couple plays a vital role in the game’s second episode, and teaches young protagonist Clementine about the value of hope and forgiveness in a world that seems to be lacking in both.

With PAX East coming up in April (the 11th through the 13th, to be exact), it’s time once again for the Annual GayGamer.net PAX East Meet-up! Come have a few drinks and hang out with me and the rest of the gaymers attending the East Coast PAX convention!

Unfortunately, the awesomely low-key bar where we’ve always gathered our gays, Fritz, has closed for remodeling, forcing us to find another venue to descend upon. Luckily, there’s a spot right around the corner in the same neighborhood called Club Café. And it’s got a dance floor, so we can get our groove on!

So join us on Saturday, April 12, starting around 9:00 at Club Café, located at 209 Columbus Ave. (We’ll be there all night long, but after 11:00 they start charging a cover.) Hope to see you there!

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, Is “Bromance” Enough?

In the year 2022, video games will advance to the point that several Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Games will vie for players’ attentions. Don’t trust those wily devs, though. They will turn their eye-melting immersive experiences into their own personal Murderworlds to carry out vendettas due to unrequited love–or y’know whatevs.

What a strange era to live in which will even allow your male avatar to hold hands with other male avatars and effect a “manly friendship.” Such are the comments of Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment game producer Yosuke Futami. Siliconera reads this as adding a bit of bromance to the story. But is bromance enough?

Well, now that the Veronica Mars movie is out, I’m done mainlining episodes to cram for it and can get back to some gaming. Unfortunately the game is still Fable III. But I did play a pretty nifty demo on my Vita that may actually inspire a purchase! Make the jump to watch this week’s episode and find out what it is!

She will never turn her back on a friend. She is always there to defend. She’s the one on whom you can depend. She is the one named Sailor Moon.

It’s been over twenty years since the original Sailor Moon manga and anime series took the world by storm, birthing an entire anime genre as well as one of the single most recognizable nerd icons of all time: Sailor Moon herself. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone, gamer, otaku, or otherwise, that doesn’t recognize the schoolgirl uniform and the signature blonde pigtails.

The cultural icon is set to make her triumphant return, with her pals the Sailor Scouts in tow, later this year in Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal.
