Attack On ABC: #Gamergate: Female gamers and developers threatened with rape, murder as online row rages
The whole GamerGate controversy is essentially a consumer revolt wherein gamers of all walks of life, be it nice guys, hardcore, casual, feminist, MRAs, minorities, majorities, aliens, women, trans, and everything else that we’ve missed, have taken to empowering themselves and Tweeting about their outrage through a hashtag called #GamerGate. The hashtag itself was coined by Adam Baldwin after the watergate incident after he came across some videos detailing sexual corruption within gaming journalism, which is an accurate allegory to watergate. Recently, as a part of their terrible coverage of this campaign, the ABC in Australia have published a news article where they talk to a video game developer of some kind about some of the harassment that they’ve received. … Continue reading
The Sacred Tears TRUE is the latest JRPG doujin offering from Nyu-Media. The game is developed by Alphanuts and is described as a card battling RPG on the official website. However, The Sacred Tears TRUE is way more impressive than a mere TCG RPG. Alphanuts have developed a story and created a rather interesting game using dated technology which should be surprisingly interesting to gamers. The first thing that’s noticeable with The Sacred Tears TRUE is that it was built on the classic RPGMaker 2003 engine. At the first glance, we could have sworn that this title was built on the even older RPGMaker 2000 engine, but the game had a few tells that lead us to this conclusion. The … Continue reading
Earlier, the news program over on the MSNBC released a story about #GamerGate, and most predominantly, about the alleged harassment that developer Brianna Wu and other games developers have been receiving, allegedly, at the hands of gamers supporting the GamerGate consumer revolt. This report is hardly unbiased, shows a clear agenda to demonise gamers, and just blatantly shows a lack of research on the part of MSNBC. The beginning of the story focuses on one ‘Brianna Wu’, an alleged female game developer that has received harassment over the GamerGate scandal. MSNBC states that she “went into hiding over the weekend” at the beginning of their video piece, due to threats of violence and etc. Their evidence of this appears to … Continue reading
Cardfight!! Vanguard is the Anime series based on the Bushiroad card game of the same name. The series is a collaboration between the president of Bushiroad, the author of Yu-Gi-Oh! R and that one guy that worked on that one card game Anime series that was pretty terrible back in the mid 2000s, Duel Masters. This part of the series, part 4, focuses on the regional tournament of Japan, where our team of Vanguard players face off against some strong opponents and rather risky odds. This part follows directly after the third part of the series and is still following the first arc of the Cardfight!! Vanguard anime. Cardfight!! Vanguard follows the story of Aiichi Sendou and his team of … Continue reading
Sunday saw the close of the EB Games Expo event this year in Sydney. The EB Games Expo is a showcase put together by EB Games for publishers and game developers to show off all of their latest games, software, hardware and other cool bits and pieces to the public before it is available to purchase in stores. I personally like to think of the show as a giant temporary arcade, but for upcoming video games, instead of arcade games. The Expo had a massive publisher turn-out over the weekend with all of the big names having at least some kind of a presence at the event. This included: 2K Games, Activision, Konami, Tecmo Koei, Bandai Namco, Ubisoft, Xbox, Playstation, … Continue reading
This weekend at EB Games Expo in Sydney we had some hands-on time with the upcoming Battlefield Hardline from Visceral Games and published by EA. Battlefield Hardline’s multiplayer is focused on cops vs. robbers , where players take on various scenarios in order to beat out their opposition. At the EA Games booth at EB Expo in Sydney, Battlefield Hardline was playable with two teams of cops and robbers of around 12 people per team. In our match we were playing a scenario where we had to steal marked cars in order to burn down the opposing teams tickets and ultimately win. Unfortunately, the matched was timed, otherwise we’d have been there for potentially an hour, as is typical for … Continue reading
