Well, I’m kind of irritated this week because a game I was enjoying turned out to have a kind of major bug in it that’s preventing me from completing it. Grrr… And then I tried a new game that I’m not really sure I’m going to get very far in… not really my cup of tea. Make the jump to watch the new vidcast and I’ll explain everything!

Capitol Hillbillies is a wild, raunchy, nerdy web comic that has been cracking up readers for five years. And now it’s moving from computers to bookshelves with Northwest Press‘ publication of Capitol Hillbillies Volume One! The collection chronicles the adventures of four gay guys as they navigate sex, dating, pop culture, videogames and the occasional unicorn.

You can order your own copy in either paperback or digitally by clicking here, but to find out more about the LGBT comic’s humble beginnings and why gaymers would enjoy the heck out of it, we talked with its creator, Chris Lange!

Back during E3 Square-Enix slyly announced that their recently rebooted MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV would be introducing marriage, both gay and straight, to the game. This move came as a welcome surprise for many gaymers, following a series of banned forum posts regarding same-sex marriage during the game’s beta-testing phase. A GM responded to the issue, but the game’s development teams stayed mostly quiet on the issue until the big marriage announcement in June.

To celebrate the new nuptual options, and to thank the developers for making a more inclusive choice, the Rough Trade Gaming Community held the first ever Eorzean pride march in Final Fantasy XIV.

Indie Darlings: Shovel Knight

Now and again we feature indie games of note, either for their content relevant to LGBT2SQ* communities, or just because.  Welcome to Indie Darlings:  Shovel Knight Edition.

It would have been easy for Shovel Knight to be a derivative nostalgia pile on, a sort of rosy-coloured 8-bit bukakke.  The hunger for all things old-school is ferocious right now – from Capcom’s Mega Man 9 & 10, to Nintendo’s NES Remixes and resurrection of side-scrolling Mario, to Ubisoft’s reverent love letter to incredibad 80s action movies in Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.  The market’s clearly there as children of the 8- and 16-bit eras are sprouting grey hair and lapping up reminders of their misty youths and the delightful, punishing, delicious and delirious games that once sustained them.
