BuzzFeed asked female cosplayers at New York ComicCon to share the creepiest thing that’s ever been said to them while they were in costume. Thankfully, I did not encounter such creepiness in my costume.
The question of whether—or to what extent—literature should allow readers into the minds of terrorists, murderers, and abusers both fictional and historical is one that continues to trouble authors. However, what if we apply this question to video game creators as well - how evil should video games allow you to be? Do creators even think about this question?

You can read the full story by clicking above, but I would like to express a little personal rage here. I don’t know what kind of people would attack a page dedicated to raising money for children’s hospitals, I really don’t. But whoever you are, you should be ashamed of yourself and I hope you realized you failed miserably in what you wanted to accomplish because Extra Life broke a fundraising goal of over $3,000,000. So you lose - the gaming community and all those who believed in the cause were much stronger than you pathetic attack. Extra Life still managed to raise a ton of money to help kids in hospitals around the country and that’s something we should all be proud of. To all those who tried to check out my fundraising page and couldn’t access it for most of the day - my apologies! This is the reason why you couldn’t get on.
Hackers have been hard at work on Pokémon X & Y trying to uncover its secrets, and some new creatures have appeared online.
Hey, everybody! It is that time of year again where gamers around the country are participating in Extra Life, a charity where gamers play and raise money for children’s hospitals. This is my personal fundraising page and my team Epic Girl Gamer (and especially the kids at the Albany Medical Center) would really appreciate your help. You can donate whatever amount you want, from $1 to $1,000 - and it is all tax deductible! So please consider donating to this wonderful cause. :) I’ll be busy gaming and working on getting more support! Reblog and help me spread the word!

David Jaffe, who has worked on video games like God of War III, has a suggestion for Nintendo: try selling the company to Disney. He believes “they clearly understand marketing, they clearly understand their audience.” This came up at my college’s Gamers Guild club and I’d like to ask you guys - what do you think about Nintendo selling their company? The numbers have shown that the company is struggling a bit, but would selling their company be the answer, let alone to Disney? Reblog or send me messages and let me know what you think!
Happy Halloween from the Gossip Gamer! :) Hope your nights are full of candy and frights. As a treat, some of you may not have heard of the LP-ers Two Best Friends Play.
