Dead of winter makes such great stories every game. I lost my leader on the first turn because he hesitated and couldn’t shoot his zombie dad. This left me with Mike Cho the ninja who was apparently so sneaky he couldn’t find any one to help him out the rest of the game. Though I had what I need to win we lost the main objective when some one tried to move to a new location and got bitten on the last turn.

Is there anything a natural 20 can’t do?

This is a poster idea I developed to show off the amazingness of tabletop rpgs.

I got to play Dead of Winter twice today! It was a very hyped game and I feel like it delivered. Tough choices, humor, roleplaying, betrayal, zombies. Really how could you ask for more? I really like the semi co-op it brings where the main objective could be completed but the players could still loose individually. We have yet to get a betrayer, that will add a completely new level to this game.

Just watched the new Mad Max: Fury road trailer. Happy to report it looks nothing like happy feet. May can’t get here soon enough!

I am so excited. For some this may be no big thing but for me this a huge step to realizing some future career goals. Next month I will start a basic Linux class through EdX online. Here I have created a VR machine on my Mac running Ubuntu. Can’t wait to start.

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry →

thisfeliciaday:

This article is heartbreaking. And true.

There is a reason I throttled back on doing a lot of creative gaming content a few years ago. And why I still avoid taking some jobs in the gaming world when they’re offered to me. And why, when we have a female host on any of our Geek and Sundry gaming shows, we have to monitor the comments on YouTube extra, to remove the many comments that are offensive and pollute our community’s spirit of equality. Because I hate that shit. 

There is an endemic acceptance in the gamer world that “well, it comes with the territory” when a woman receives threats and harassment and the hateful anonymous internet dialogue is focused on her body and whether they would “do” her or not. I don’t know why this became okay. It’s a vocal minority that has been given way too much power over the industry dialogue, and I am so happy to see more and more articles like this shining the light on what reasonable gamer men and women have been conned into accepting as a given.

NOTHING is a given in this world. And frankly, it taints the art form we so love and keeps it back from becoming more respected and more diverse to not at least TRY to fight it. Gaming deserves more than complacency in this area.

Even posting this link will cause me to receive hateful Tumblr PMs. I can always tell when something I write gets linked on certain places on the internet (like 4 Chan or a few other forums of troll-hood), because I’ll immediately get dozens of hate mails along the veins of what is posted in this article. 

Well, I’m a lucky one to be prominent enough to have 10 supporters for every hater. I mostly feel sorry for girls and women who aren’t in my position, who may just give up on gaming when they’re too beaten down to fight anymore.

We have to change that. For the good of what we love doing, gamers! Okay, back to work :)
