Why the games media has a diversity problem - this website especially

@jabberwocky when I was growing up, through the late 80s and 90s, video games were seen as silly things for boys, something you were expected to grow out of.
These days it seems a pretty even split between between boys and girls.

@jabberwocky "growing up i knew about 1 girl who could game"

Interesting choice of words, it implies the rest weren't capable or perhaps allowed.

@RSX901 perhaps, what would qualify someone as being a true, hardcore gamer?
The biggest problem I have with the term is how it's thrown around like a dick swinging contest, usually by little boys afraid of outsiders getting involved in their special club, or those too emotionally inept to engage with anything that doesn't involve shooting people in the face (with aim assist).

Is Candy Crush still a thing?

@INSOMANiAC I bought Demon's Souls from Grainger, NA import.
They wouldn't take 999 for DS though as it was an NA import, go figure.

@Luciferous more likely they have to pack up stock to transfer to the other stores that are still open, for the time being.

The original Luigi's Mansion is headed to 3DS

Acrid

1 month ago

@Pete207 I think Nintendo are just doing relatively simple releases to extend the 3DS life. With Luigi's Mansion they have the engine in place from Dark Moon and with the low resolution screen of the 3DS they can reuse assets from the GameCube game (and Dark Moon). It's still a job of course, but it's got to be a lot quicker and a lot less risk than making a brand new game.

This really feels like the end of an era. Demon's Souls is one of the greatest games I've ever played, there was just something about the atmosphere, the way it conjured a sense of dread everytime you stepped through a fog gate.

Bring more souls, slayer of demon's.
