The training regiment may involve hundreds of stationary hours rather than gruelling sweat, but proponents argue that “cyber athlete” is a real thing.

Poseurs for Your Money

Lots of people are rightfully excited at the chance to directly support games they are interested in through sites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter.

What happens when big studios move in and run marketing projects that are designed to advertise and have no chance of actually funding games? Does their behaviour poison the water for indies who are trying to justify their budget?

Would You Play Cartridges Again?

Everything old is new again as retro gaming continues its march across the market.

Should young children play video games that were intended for adults, like Grand Theft Auto or Call of Duty? Is it appropriate for them to be exposed to that level of violent and sexual content at a young age, when their notions about what is right and wrong, real and fantasy are still being formed?
