    Jimquisition: Rape vs. Murder

    Because In most games the killings are often justified (even if its only within the logic of the game) rape however can't possibly be justified. Rape is someone losing control over themselves as they lust after their victim. Its a personal thing for the attacker that can't be justified by...

    Arkham City.... Sexist?

    Just want to point out that the bad guys are calling the female character a *****... so surely that will create an association between the bad guys and bad language, while the protagonist hero shows her respect. Surely thats something worth teaching the little ones right?

    Extra Punctuation: Manly Vs. Macho in Gears

    The games haven't failed to portray their characters, people have just failed to pick up on what the character are. Just because your jaded by 17 years of war doesn't mean you aren't a character.

    Extra Punctuation: Manly Vs. Macho in Gears

    OK for what has too be the hundredth time on these forums, I'm going to point at the Gears of War novels by Karen Travis and say that "If you want to realy see whats going on under the hood of some of the best known characters in video gaming, read these books." It will explain why marcus has...

    Zero Punctuation: Gears of War 3

    Observe how you win every arguement about a game's quality (or at least leave the other side unable to give a decent responce). "I had fun with it and don't care for your opinion."

    The Big Picture: Gender Games

    I'm just going to point to the fine ladies known as Anya Stroud and Sam Byrne and give a standing ovation to Epic Games for schooling the gaming industry on how to make good looking female characters who don't have their bodies on show when they go into battle.

    Escape to the Movies: The Unseen

    I don't really listen to critics that much, I go see what I want too see (if I get the chance to go see it) and it means I have fun at the cinema because I know what I like and frankly don't trust anyone else to tell me what I should like. Its why I enjoyed Conan the Barbarian this monday...

    Escape to the Movies: Green Lantern

    I wanna just post a link of a waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaambulance meme and be done here but I gotta say, I can't believe Ryan Renolds is anything other than "that guy in rom-coms". Which really is where he belongs, are you really shocked? Any of you? Lets just focus on marvel for a bit and see if DC...

    The Big Picture: The Numbers

    Good too see I'm not the only one who likes the sound of today's ultra realistic gunfire over the sound of the 8 bit mario beeps and boops. Not everyone was around in the 80's and even those that were may not have been a hard core geek who only wants his favourite comic book/novel/anime...

    The Big Picture: Skin Deep

    Couldn't agree more. If a white character is played by a person of ethnicity and played better by that actor, who gives a shit about melanin levels. Question time, who has the charisma and physical presence to play nick fury other than Samuel L Jackson? I mean sure this guy has the hair but...
