Scarlet Blade, Game for the 15 year old male unable to find real porn
Scarlet Blade, A Game for the 15 year old male unable to find real porn

Well it seems to work for video games still so why the hell should we not take advantage as well?

This weeks gaming news was actually very interesting indeed.

People got fired for what in the end turned out to be sarcasm, but when you’re a Creative Director at Microsoft you really should know better.

EA were voted the worst company in America for the second year running, once again proving public polls are a complete waste of time

There are a few stories related to the imbalance between male and females within the games industry, from wages to imagery & even their exclusion from certain aspects that might help explain a few things.

Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.
