Just a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the Penny Arcade Expo. It was my first time attending and I was pleasantly surprised. This was one of the best conventions I have ever attended.

Quest For Glory I: So You Want To Be A Hero is a lovely adventure game written by Sierra in 1989. It is the first of the Quest For Glory games, and in my opinion, it is the best.

Life in Skyrim: The Beginning Posted by ALI.Skyrim on December 19, 2011 · 4 Comments “ First Entry; Morndas, 17th of Last Seed Poor Rajiir was taken prisoner by vicious Imperial dogs when he tried to cross into Skyrim. Evidently, I was mistaken for a member of the Nord rebellion.
2012 is a huge year for games. I can’t even wrap my head around all the amazing stuff that’s coming out. In fact, in the extremely unlikely event that the world is actually coming to an end this December, I’m fine with that, because most of the fourth quarter releases will be out well before then. I’ll have time for at least one playthrough before perishing in cleansing flame. Today, I’m going to look at a few upcoming games that are making some progress beyond the status quo.
It hasn’t exactly been quiet on the Lego front, lately, what with leaked pictures of Lord of the Rings sets , and the release of their DC Universe line. But it’s been pretty quiet on the Lego Friends front, except inside the adult Lego modeling community, who are finding some fabulous ways to turn a cafe kitchen, a disco, and a beauty salon into some sets that are a little more far and away more outside of the tiny gender box that Lego has placed their girls toys in. Naturally, some are writing about how this advantage to the adult modeling community (that of new figurines, colors, and brick shapes to play around with) proves that everyone alarmed by the gender-specificity of Lego’s line was just being “ silly ,” and they obviously did not realize that you can make Legos into, like, anything! Lego asked girls what they wanted, and this was it. You can’t blame them for wanting to sell bricks.
'The most homo-erotic tale ever created in any medium' A curious thing happened to me the other day while I was playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 , which, if you're not familiar with such things, is a video game in which you participate in a bloody big war. It's a very popular franchise; devoted fans camp out on pavements for a launch copy, which makes it the royal wedding of violent video games . Anyway, I'd got about a quarter of the way into it and was "doing" a level based in Sierra Leone that required a bit of stealth and sneaking around.
by Becky Chambers | 12:28 pm, January 16th, 2012 I spend a staggering amount of time thinking about video games. I’m constantly chewing on the reasons for the character choices we make and how people are represented within games. I’ve spent a lot brainpower mulling over that stuff from a woman’s perspective, and I confess that for a long while, I hadn’t dedicated many neurons to wondering how our brothers-in-arms felt about those very same things. I knew that there was a big difference between the groovy gamer guys I hang with and the snarling trolls that lurk elsewhere. I knew that some men do not speak for all men, and that male gamers are every bit as diverse as women gamers.
The second Guild Wars 2 press beta weekend has come and gone, and Massively was there every step of the way. Stay tuned throughout the day today for even more guides, impressions, videos, and Q&As to get you ready for the highly anticipated sequel to Guild Wars . In just the few minutes that it takes to traverse the 10 screens of Guild Wars 2's character creation process, I'm left with one overriding thought: This game looks ridiculously good. Ludicrously so, even. And I didn't even enter the game world yet! I always love a good, in-depth character creation system, as there's a joy in spending a good amount of time making exactly the sort of character you want to play.
California Supreme Court Justices - Getty Images In a landmark ruling, the U. S. Supreme Court Monday declared video games are protected forms of free speech, striking down a controversial California law that that attempted to restrict the sale of some titles to minors. The state argued that violent games are harmful to children and, as such, their sale should be restricted. California took a slightly different approach than other states who have attempted to pass similiar laws, though, by including violent games in the same category as cigarettes and adult magazines.
Journey (Sony) Are video games art? Despite the Supreme Court ruling that games deserve First Amendment protection , the debate quietly continues. A new downloadable PS3 game, however, might silence some doubters. Created by acclaimed independent developer thatgamecompany (fl0w, Flower), Journey is an exploratory adventure that sees players wandering across a massive desert as they slowly make their way to a beacon of light atop a faraway mountain. They'll come across other online players along the way, but in what's considered a significant breach of gamer protocol, no talking is allowed, forcing players to find other ways to communicate with one another. Crazy?
