This week, Rhonda and I take on two very common terms in game culture: casual and hardcore gamers. We talk with Toria and Mellisa about how they define a gamer, fandom, game culture, and game play. I must say this episode is full of excellent observations and more than a few fits of giggling. Truly an enjoyable episode to record and one I hope you’ll enjoy. From our cyber-mailbox, we further discuss the complications from losing your identity in game as we touched on in GoG Short #7 – For All the Toons We’ve Loved Before – and your responses to this week’s Twitter question:Read More →

In Game on Girl Shorts #7, Rhonda and I discuss what it’s like to lose an avatar. Rhonda shares her story of losing her FemShep when her PlayStation3 crashed. We discuss how and why we connect to our avatars, how creating a character you play is very similar to how authors create their characters in the stories they tell, and how we’ve heard similar stories from other gamers about how this impacts how you view a game. We hope with this short episode to explore a new theme and hear more of your stories about what it is like to lose a character. How doRead More →
