“Who cares about female protagonists?”

  The title of this article was inspired by a panel at PAX Australia by the same name, which I sadly missed. Regardless, the topic is an interesting one, and it got me thinking of an article I had read online recently regarding a study of female protagonists in video games and their relation to the games’ sales. According to the study, people were 25% more likely to purchase a game with...[Read More]

Bethesda’s Fallout tactics

5 of the best dogs in video games

– Charlie Braithwaite As we all know, dogs are the greatest things in the universe. I’ve previously discussed how much I hate it when they are enemies in games, but now it’s time to honour the pups who have been our digital companions. These aren’t ranked in any particular order, all dogs are amazing, so it would be unfair to judge them (except my dog IRL who is the best ever). Fable II: Dog...[Read More]
