Where ever there's a mass shooting or grievous violence, the end fault always seems to land on the shoulders of "violent" video games. Not graphic violence on TV. Not graphic violence depicted on the news, or in the newspaper and other news media. Not graphic violence depicted in songs...we can still beat them bitches and hoes to our hearts content. And not in role-playing games, history books,...

When I used to play the popular SOE MMO, Everquest, I made my rounds on the Nameless (formerly Innoruuk) server.  I was Kshali Mourningmoon, a high level pink druid that was a killer healer and raid leader.  Once a month I went up to Orlando and became Kshal, the red haired necromancer, and once a week I drove over to West Palm Beach and became...

Do the toys that we are given by our parents, that we play with while growing up, define who we are? What kind of person we will grow up to be? Some people certainly think so. In the 21st century, there are still people out there who think that letting a boy play with a doll, or a purple controller, will make them gay.  There's also people...

Every great once in awhile, when I go through the various press releases and launch notices about new sites and innovations in, I come across something related to gaming.  This morning was one of those days when I came across a little gem of a press release. Evidently a dating site called DateaGamer.co.uk launched a new sister site called ShagaGamer.com.  This idea has always been...

I'm not going to make excuses.  I've been absent from this site, I haven't been updating and I certainty haven't been doing a good job of talking about gaming.  What do I have to say for myself? Well, I've been travelling and gaming. Last month found me in the US for one fourth work and the rest vacation.  I figured since I was already in the states...

I can't really say that I'm a Facebook Gamer.  I played Restaurant City for about a year before I lost interest and I dabbled in Hotel City.  But I never got sucked into Farmville like a lot of people I know.  However, today while looking through my news items (on Facebook no less), I came across a friend who linked to an article called 'Police...

Wow.  February has been particularly busy for me.  So busy that I haven't had time to make one post on GamerGrrls myself! Phewww! I bet you are just dying to know what I've been up to. Lets see.  Gym.  Lots and lots of gym and jogging.  2011 was dedicated to giving myself an overhaul and I've dedicated 2012 to lifting weights.  Why? Because I can...

Today on Facebook, one of my friends shared a link to a pretty amazing article on the Huffington Post.  It's about a big brother who stuck up for his little brother.  Why? Because his little brother wanted a game where he could play a girl character and he wanted a remote control with 'girl' colors but daddy didn't like it.  Evidently playing girl characters and...

[caption id="attachment_317" align="aligncenter" width="614" caption="From the Mark Twain Stormfield Project"][/caption] So we've taken the word 'nigger' and 'injun' in Mark Twain's classic Huckleberry Finn.  There's no more Christmas, Valentine, or Thanksgiving parties in elementary schools.  We now have Spring, Fall, and Winter festivals.  Schools have asked publishers to take a lot of religion and religious culture out of Social Studies books because Lord forbid, the...
