This blog is designed to be an extension of my Facebook page of the same name which discusses gaming reviews and things that matter in the gaming community.

As an aspiring writer I also have short stories that I would welcome feedback on. Follow me on Twitter @geekscanbecool

This is terrifying.

this is so fucking disgusting smh

My god I have never seen something so terrifying in my entire life

What the flying fuck just happened???

What the hell?! What happened after this? This is so upsetting.

So, I googled this to find out if there was anything I could do. More information.

Excerpt -

"One of the officers involved in the incident has been previously named in two excessive force lawsuits that resulted in settlements paid out by the city of Hammond."

What the actual fuck?

Meet the Hero of Thedas in Dragon Age Inquisition

Dragon Age Inquisition is so far saying and showing us all the right things. More races, tactical combat, beautiful graphics and an open world that isn’t copy and pasted like Dragon Age II. Could this be the glorious return to form for the series? We hope so!

ROSARIO DAWSON IS PLAYING CLAIRE TEMPLE, AND OTHER NEWS FROM THE NETFLIX DAREDEVIL PANEL [NYCC]
By Andrew Wheeler
The Netflix Daredevil panel took place at New York Comic-Con on Saturday evening, and the biggest revelation is that Rosario Dawson is not playing any of the characters anyone guessed she might be playing. In fact she’s playing a relatively obscure supporting character from the Luke Cage comics of the 1970s, Claire Temple.
Those lucky enough to attend the panel were treated to a preview clip that showed Temple, a nurse, tending to a wounded Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox). Other clips showed Daredevil rescuing Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) from a mugger, Vincent D’Onofrio as the Kingpin, and first glimpse inside the law offices of Nelson & Murdock. Following the panel, Marvel released images showing the first official glimpses of Daredevil, both in an early costume and in his civilian identity.

Why #gamergate is important

Fun fact: Morgan Ramsay, founder of the Entertainment Media Counsel, did an objective study of how much of gaming journalism talks about sexism or social justice.
To do this, he downloaded 130,524 articles from 37 RSS feeds of 23 outlets, including The Escapist, Rock Paper Shotgun, CVG, Edge Online, Eurogamer, Gamasutra, Game Informer, GamePolitics, GamesBeat, GamesIndustry International, GameSpot, GamesRadar, IGN, IndieGames, Joystiq, Kotaku, Massively, MCV, NowGamer, PocketGamer.biz, Polygon, Shacknews and VG24/7, published over a period of twelve months. He then did a search on how often these games articles mentioned sexism, feminism, or misogyny.
The result? Over a period of one year, 0.41% of 130,524 articles referenced feminism, feminist, sexism, sexist, misogyny, and misogynist explicitly. 
That’s less than half of one percent.
So next time you hear someone whining that “feminism is taking over video games journalism”, what they’re actually whining about is that feminism exists in video games journalism.
