Divinity: Original Sin Dev Talks Boob-Plates, Sexism And Moral Outrage

One Angry Gamer “Caught in the crossfire between the media and gamers are game developers. The devs are just trying to make good games. However, the medias finger-pointing hasnt been limited to demonizing their own audience, theyve also taken to silencing and badgering the artists and creators of interactive entertainment content as well.

One of the developers who knows full well about the demonization of artwork and having said art altered to fit the views of those offended by certain forms of gender depiction, is Larian Studios Thierry Van Gyseghem, an animator and artist who worked on the PC RPG Divinity: Original Sin.” —> Read More

Cara Ellison on: #Fortune

Lying with my face on a hotel pillow reading IMs from Chris Donlan: ‘It’s time to go full gonzo.’ Donlan is paying me a fee to take the free iPhone app #Fortune around the world with me to do a 2015 Dice Man. It’s an app that uses Twitter to generate digital fortune cookies.

Don’t get killed, Donlan says, and I sign off.

The maker of the strange #Fortune app is a man called Zach Gage. He makes games and lives in New York City and he only ever wears sandals everywhere. If I were a Male MFA Writer I’d say he’s ‘a drinking buddy’ of mine. I don’t feel particularly inclined to treat his game any better. My feelings are that if I savaged this guy’s free app he’d still have had a hand in Ridiculous Fishing, one of the most successful iOS games on the store. Maybe he’d be angry on a barstool next to me next time I saw him. Who cares. Maybe this entire article should be about my ambivalent feelings about Zach and our grown up relationship that entails respecting each other’s opinions.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Review | GodisaGeek

Dan Naylor: “The bottom line is that Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is two fantastic shooters, each worthy of your time, with a ton of DLC and polished up to look their best. If youve played both games and their DLC already theres not much here for you aside the faster frame rate, better visuals, and chance to play on your shiny new console. But if its your first time as a vault hunter, this is without doubt the best place to start.” —> Read More
