  2. Games for Girls? How About Games for Everyone?

    Gender-neutral games are too hard to animate.

    The portrayal and treatment of women in and around video games is a sore subject for a lot of us. It’s been talked about to death, and yet it still doesn’t seem like we’re making much progress. It’s a very polarizing but uniformly upsetting issue that lingers on in this otherwise great community like cat pee on an oriental rug.

  3. A Great Big List of Games from E3 with Playable Female Characters

    All aboard the hype train!

    Like many of you, me and my fellow Weekend Editor Sam Maggs and I were more than a little irked by the whole Ubisoft kerfuffle earlier this week. It almost made us forget about that long ago time (last Monday) when we were really excited about the stuff coming out of E3. Then we realized...we're still excited! And though female representation still has a long way to go in the gaming industry, we're happy to report there are plenty of other upcoming games that include playable female characters.

  5. Doreen Fox is 78, Still Stood On Line for Call of Duty: Ghosts

    For A More Civilized Age

    If you're a Call of Duty: Ghosts player and you've found your self with a teammate who occasionally shoots a tree in the two weeks since it came out, don't stress. You might have been playing with Doreen Fox, a seventy-eight year old English grandmother who says playing violent games keeps her sharp, and doesn't seem to care that her neighbors might be confused by the sounds of gunfire and explosions that come from her one-bedroom apartment. And who stood on line to grab Call of Duty: Ghosts at its midnight release this month.

  6. Why Put Playable Female Characters in Call of Duty?

    i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

    Honestly, adding female soldiers to character customization wasn't about trying to lure more people into the game. It was actually just about acknowledging the people who already play our game. - Mark Rubin, executive producer of Infinity Ward. While Call of Duty initially made its name in World War II era combat, its Modern Warfare series and Black Ops II are set in the present or near future. One other good reason to add female characters to Ghosts is that by 2016 at the latest, women will serve as Army Rangers, Navy Seals, and Marine infantry. Although I have to admit, acknowledging the women who already play your game is good too. (Also it would be pretty sad if you put a mo-capped dog in your game before you added women to multiplayer.)

    Things We Saw Today

    I'm not sure one episode of Game of Thrones goes by without me lamenting my lack of hair braiding ability. Thankfully, there's a few new diagrams for that. Or you could just do what I usually do, the Wildling look.  (via Tor)

  9. Buying Games Like Call of Duty Might Be a Moral Choice [Video]

    Violence and video games is a tricky subject, but it's just plain factual that many games -- like Call of Duty, for example -- sometimes license the use and depiction of actual firearms. As in, the virtual sniper rifle a player's using might be about as close to the real thing as a virtual sniper rifle gets. So, is buying Call of Duty or Battlefield a moral choice? That's what Mike Rugnetta and PBS Idea Channel explore in their latest and greatest video.

  10. This Just Got Real: Swedish Police Raid Call Of Duty Session

    When a ten-person strong team of Swedish police officers responded to an emergency call over the weekend, they didn't know what they were in for, but considering the details they had to go on -- the caller's description of the situation stated had included the sound of gunshots and frantic cries for help -- they can be forgiven for expecting the worst. Happily, rather than  gruesome abbatoir they may have anticipated, the officers were instead confronted with... a group of teenagers playing Call of Duty.
