ICYMI, we’ve selected Deadly Premonition for the first Games Club game. It’s one of my favorites, and Jaylee will be playing it for the first time with all of you!
We’re going to try to select games that were easily accessible, and Deadly Premonition is available on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC with a few tweaks. We’re really interested to hear from both those who play the original game and the players of the Director’s Cut.
Meet us back here in two weeks when we’re going to have a mini-Water Cooler/Let’s Play about Jaylee’s progress thus far.

Pixel Rift is a super cool (and rather silly) use of cutting edge virtual reality technology to re-create an authentic retro gaming experience, complete with retro consoles and environments.

You follow the life of a gaming addict Nicola as she battles through the ages to play her favourite game Pixel Rift.  You’ll play on a variety of consoles, handhelds and arcade machines, all with different graphical capabilities, from black and white blocks to colorful 90’s polygons. You’ll also play in a variety of authentic environments, from sitting in front of your TV at home, to sneakily playing a GameBoy knockoff during class.

If the rest of the environments are half as good as the school level (full of fun little touches, easter eggs and bizarre mini games) that’s available in the Alpha demo, then Pixel Rift is going to be fantastic.  It’s a wonderful concept, a fun tongue-in-cheek trip down memory lane.  

This isn’t a retro game simulator, it’s a retro gaming simulator - and an awesome one at that!

Times are hard for men these days, living under the tyranny of feminist oppression. No playable men in Assassin’s Creed, three female protagonists in GTA and yet the only men are basically there to be fucked or to be antagonistic, most of the men in games these days simply die at the start to give the female characters something to be angry about. It’s like all the big games these days cater exclusively to women and treat men like objects. 
Oh no, wait.
