• Remembering Old Friends: Neverwinter

    The idea of a First Town is a mainstay of roleplaying games. It has its origins in stories the genre draws inspiration from, as with Frodo’s Hobbiton; and it’s there in the stories the genre’s inspired, too, as with Kirito and the rather obtusely named Town of Beginnings. They are sometimes rustic, sometimes cosmopolitan, often…

    Contemplate the Nature of Emotions with a Vacuum Cleaner in Rumu

    With the rise in popularity of multiplayer games, any announcement for story-rich, single player games often seem like a treat. So when I heard about Rumu (developed by Robot House) during my trip to PAX Australia 2017, I was really excited to get to play it. I grabbed an early release key for review purposes, courtesy of the developers themselves. This…

  • [Throwback Thursday] Looking Back at 10 Years of Bioshock

    In the video gaming zeitgeist, Bioshock really needs no introduction. It's hard to argue nowadays that Ken Levine is one of the greatest gaming auteurs of our time. Yet in the summer of 2007, nobody could have anticipated Irrational Games' return to form since System Shock 2. Despite being released the same year as Halo 3,…

  • A First-Time Con-Goer’s Experience at PAX Australia 2017

    Gaming has been a part of my life since I gained consciousness. One of my earliest memories involved early afternoons of nothing but Bomberman on an SNES I begged my parents for. Despite my love for gaming, I have never involved myself with conventions and events until recently. Upon the invitation of a dear friend (who I met…

I’ve played Fire Emblem: Awakening three times on various levels now. Currently I’m in the middle of my…

    Girls Got Game had the privilege of attending and covering one of South East Asia’s biggest gaming conventions - ESGS 2017. There were games, freebies, and challenges to be had in the 3-day gaming convention, and every minute of it was just unadulterated fun. Events on-site were open for anyone to participate in. One of these was…

No Apologies from 12:01

12:01

The 2016 Philippine elections have come and gone, but the message in 12:01 by writer Russell Molina and artist Kajo Baldisimo (TRESE) is still of great importance. Earlier this year, online debates popped up all over the Philippine end of Facebook. Friendships called it quits, comment threads turned nasty, and the entire thing got so toxic that I wasn’t sure…
