What I love about Yargis
 * It’s so much fun
 * It is an indie game
 * It’s SPACE!
 * The physics of the game

I’m apparently not great at space games. Something about the physics of moving around in space really messes with me but man, I LOVE THIS GAME! The controller support is nice if you like playing with a controller. Normally, I love controllers but it is definitely harder for me to fly around in space with a controller. I’ve legitimately had a lot of fun playing this game. Your ship is customizable and you get to shoot things. What’s not to like?  I mean, really. There is space, shooting, and customization – three things that would make any gamer happy!

Limbo: A Loving Review + Fan Art Love

I’ve been told so many times by random people that I NEED to play Limbo. Let me tell you… I’m in love.

I think first it needs to be said that I get REALLY stressed out when I play any kind of platformer. I love them but they stress me out. Let me just get a little side note out of the way: I’ve had to try and get through this game three times. THREE times because my save file keeps getting erased. It’s really been annoying. But, I think that I’ve played it enough times to accurately review it. ;P

The style of this game is beautiful. There’s no dialog in the game. You simply experience… and let me tell you, it’s great. It’s very much like film noir and there isn’t any like, annoying game music* … just the creepy sounds of Limbo.

I don’t want to give away the plot because it is part of the fun of the game. The ending is vague. It leaves it to you to decide what happened. The game itself is a puzzle platformer – meaning that there are certain puzzles you have to figure out in order to move on. It has some dirty tricks in it that make you second guess yourself a lot.

Overall, I’m in love with this game. Love it to death. It’s beautiful and original.

*I hate game music. Well, I love game music but I hate playing games with music because it become monotonous and makes me hate the music. 

Now, I have to share this with you guys… Because I’m in love with it.

I’m always insanely jealous of really artistic people because I want nothing more than to be able to create beautiful art.. I never really study how to be an artist, I just studied art… So, basically, I just love artists and I always love their work. This was done by Adrian in college and it’s just so pretty that I can’t handle it. Plus, it’s inspired by Limbo. (Bonus points if you can guess what else it is inspired by!)

Insert Feministic Title

Sexism in video games is something that gets me really fired up, as it does with a lot of people, but I think I’m weird about it. While the video game culture is very much still in the dark ages when it comes to women, I think that female gamers are getting all worked up over stupid things. Here are the things that are really bugging me.

1. “Ugh. I just want to wear something that isn’t bikini armor!”
While I don’t always want to wear bikini armor, I don’t really care either way. Does it have better stats? Yes? Then does it really matter? Nope.  I mean, I know that people like to RP and I know that they get all worked up because they’re being over-sexualized, but… If you were playing a male character and he was all abs and muscles with little armor and looked like Thor, would you be complaining?  Or is it really just a double standard that you have? 

2. “I wish there were strong female leads.”
There are. Plenty of them. Want a list?
Chell.
Lightning.
FemShep.
Alice.
Samus.
Faith.
Laura Croft.
Any RPG with character customization.
The list goes on… 
Just… stop. I’ve said that I wish there were more strong females, and I do wish there were MORE but just because there aren’t a billion doesn’t mean that they’re not out there.

3. “I don’t use voicechat because I hate how guys talk to me.”
First of all, guys suck when it comes to this… but until more female gamers start using voice chat and start putting their foot down about what is and isn’t acceptable to say to them, it’s just going to keep being bad. I use voice chat, I’ve been treated like crap… but, I can also smack talk with the best of them. If you can shut a guy up with some good ol’ fashion smack talk, they generally respect you a bit more. I’ve found that going into it with a dude mentality, they’re going to treat you like one of the guys. Maybe this one is more of a personal issue and not everyone is going to agree with me on it, but it has worked for me and I have little to no problems with being harassed in voice chat now.
