I wonder if Music Evolved will become a huge Christmas hit this year?
It toke a while. But now the wait is finally over! Because Harmonix (and Disney Interactive´s) Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved have now landed on both 360 and Xbox One in EU. And grade wise, things has gone rather well for Music Evolved (the Xbox One version has a 80.81% average score at the moment via Gamerankings.com).
I may not be the best of dancers, singers or composers. But i really enjoy good music from artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Queen, Gorillaz, Elton John and David Bowie (all of which just happens to star in Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved).
So, will you guys kick out the jams with Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved this weekend?

If you are a reader of ours, then you know that we have written quite a few articles about #GamerGate over the past months. For ex:
The Women Of #GamerGate - The female side of the story:
The truth about #GamerGate and Brianna Wu:
Intel and Gamergate - The Gamergate to hell are still open!:
Gamergate is over - Game over man, game over!:
And still, very few people know what #GamerGate is all about. I can´t blame them though. Because i was confused as well at the very start of the birth of #GamerGate. And that´s where GamerGate.me steps into the picture.
Because GamerGate dot me is a neutral page that´s 100% dedicated to #GamerGate. So you will find all the information that you need to know on that page (plus updated news articles on the subject). So "hopefully" this will enlight (and inform) people about #GamerGate.
That´s at least the whole idea behind GamerGate.me (and my post for that matter).
In no way are we an official GamerGate website. We are an aggregate website on GamerGate. We aim to be a high quality information source to people following GamerGate or people just learning about it.
GamerGate is a power struggle over the fate of an $80+ billion industry between two loosely defined groups of people. On one side is the leaderless ragtag consumer revolt of #GamerGate, comprised of those who identify themselves as gamers and those who are sympathetic to the concerns of gamers. On the other side is a tight-knit network of journalists, PR reps, and media socialites who have explicitly disclosed their hatred of the gamer identity and their complete lack of respect for gamers. #GamerGate supporters sometimes refer to this clique as ‘Social Justice Warriors’ or as ‘SocJus’ (a reference to IngSoc from Orwell’s 1984).
Motte Island is easily worth $5 imo.
People have been asking us to write more about horror games (and record more horror related video games). So that´s exactly what i will do here and now. By informing you guys about Gamebell Studio´s really neat 2D top-down horror game "Motte Island" (which you can buy via Steam for $5).
And i have to say that Motte Island looks (and feels) like a mix of GTA2 (minus the cars and the gangsters), Silent Hill and Nocturne. So if that´s youre cup of tea, then you should give Motte Island a go!
About Motte Island:
Me, i would love to own both the game and the OST =) Sadly enough though, i don´t own a Wii U or a 3DS. So i just have to wait for a iOS port. I´m also waiting for "Shantae: Half-Genie" to happen (which had a great success on Kickstarter).
And oh! If you didn´t know this by now. Cristina Vee (BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, Dynasty Warriors 7 and 8, Heroes of Newerth with many many more!) voices Cristina Vee Shantae in Shantae and the Pirate's Curse. So there you have it! So, will you guys pick up Shantae and the Pirate's Curse and the OST?
There´s now a open war against #GamerGate. And in case you have missed out on all the action that´s been going down lately. Both Brianna Wu and Anita Sarkeesian has declaired war on #GamerGate (Wu wants #GamerGate to get shut down. And Sarkeesian aims to "fix" the industry. Zoe Quinn on the other hand, is way to busy earing indiegogo bucks together with Polygon).
And then we got all the lies that´s been told on TV (MsnBC, Matt Binder). The list goes on and on. But here´s the interesting thing. While media and the Anti #GamerGate movement talks about misogyny, sexism and death threats of female devs.
Very few (to none) has taken the time to actually ask (interview) the female Gamers and devs directly. To let them give their side of the story about #GamerGate and #NotYourShield. But thankfully enough, there´s a handful of friendly minded individuals that has taken matters into their own hands (so to speak).
So i toke the liberty to add some really good videos and articles (imo) that covers the female side of #GamerGate and #NotYourShield. So i hope that you guys will enjoy them =)

Developers On 'Gamergate:' Misogyny Isn't A Gaming Problem, It's An Internet Problem:
Outland 17 might just become the next "big" thing when it comes to tactical games.
It seems like Grenade Tree Games are working on something rather interesting and uniq. I´m of course talking about their upcoming sci-fi/tactical RPG game "Outland 17". Which imo looks like a mix of X-COM, sci-fi and the American civial war.
And Outland 17 looks pretty darn good as well. I also love the fact that you can customize weapons, your gear, perks, and your squad members as you please. And that really gives you the ability to create uniq battle units. So i can´t wait to see more videos from Outland 17.
Or more so, to play it myself ;)
About Outland 17:
Outland 17 is a turn-based tactical RPG that takes inspiration from other genres such as tactics games and shooters. Each battle is a different experience because of the character load outs, environment, and tactics used.
Every squad member can be customized with unique weapons, armor, attachments, perks, and skill sets to support an assortment of playstyles. With classes ranging from deadly snipers to resilient melee warriors, you choose the composition of your squad to best handle whatever challenges Outland 17 throws at you.
Be prepared to fight on any battleground such as wide open fields, confined hallways, chaotic warzones, and more. Take cover, shoot explosive barrels, fire turrets, and do whatever it takes to gain a tactical advantage.
Some of you might not be familour with old school platform titles such as "James Pond", "Commander Keen", "Bubba n stix", "Oscar" or "Zool" (Google it!). But for those of you who are. That´s the vibes that i´ve got from Sunex games 2d metroidvania game "Snot" (for PC, MAC, Linux and Wii U).
So i really hope that i will get the chance to play Snot asap! Because not only does the singleplayer game look epic as hell. But the multiplayer part seems to be pretty awesome as well (co-op, deathmatch and much more!).
Snot is a funny 2d metroidvania game. Discover 8 well-designed worlds, meeting bizarre characters and battling manic bosses, while collecting countless shells. Unleash the power of 8 different elements to make yourself stronger and find secrets in already explored areas.
- STORY And PLATFORMER - Action + Adventure + Story: The ultimate metroidvania-style game!
- INNOVATIVE WORLDS - 8 huge worlds in different well designed themes!
- MANIFOLD ENEMIES - Over 100 different enemies and up to 30 different bosses!
- GREAT SECRETS - Over 100 secrets! Every secret has its own kind of puzzle!
- HELPFUL ELEMENTS - Learn up to 8 different elements. Each element will bring you three different abilites!
When Iron Mike goes Scooby Doo. Then you know that it is dead serious!
It´s been a while since i heard (or saw) anything about Mike Tyson. In fact, the last time i even saw him on TV was when i watched "The Hangover Part II" (Mike made my ears bleed at the end of that movie). But then i found out about the upcoming adult cartoon-show "Mike Tyson Mysteries".
And that´s some crazy shit right there. It´s like a mix of Scooby Doo, Mike Tysons crazy life and the bizarre humor from "Drawn Together". So who's the masterminds behind Mike Tyson Mysteries series then? Well, besides Mike Tyson, we got the writer Hugh Davidson (Robot Chicken), and Ethan Spaulding (Avatar: The Last Airbender, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox).
That's impressive lineup indeed. But will it be enough to impress the critics and a wide audience? That remains to be seen.
