Men Playing Girl Avatars

Men Playing Girl Avatars

I have lots of gamer-friends that are men. Quite a few of these men play female avatars. Since gaming is innately trivial, I try to make my peace with men playing girl avatars. We are gamers, and it is about the imaginary world, not about […]

Take us in, Joker. Fast and Quiet.

Take us in, Joker. Fast and Quiet.

When I first played Mass Effect it was out of curiosity. I never expected that it was going to play an important part in my psyche for years to come. No other game brings me back quite the same way that ass Effect does. Currently, […]
