Damsel in Distress

Awhile ago, I asked on our Facebook page if there were any blog posts that our fans wanted to see. One fan mentioned the representation of female heroes in video games. Considering that I made that post months ago, I’ve had a lot of time to think about it. I’ve kept it in the backContinue reading “Damsel in Distress”

Just need to point this out……

This is Sexist   This is ALSO Sexist We are in agreement on that. The point we are trying to make is that it took me 1 minute to find the first picture and 20 mins to find the second.   I don’t agree with either of these pictures. I agree that it should look awesomeContinue reading “Just need to point this out……”

Feature Friday 7/4/14

    Happy 4th of July everybody! It’s time for another Feature Friday! Today we are featuring Past is Present Designs with her FABULOUS Elizabeth cosplay from Bioshock Infinite.

E3 for you and me

Crackdown 3 Looks like awesomesauce! I was a huge fan of the first two. Well, the first one a bit more than the second, but that happens. I am really wondering what turn the storyline will take with this one. However, this game did give me achievement issues. As in, must have them ALL! HaloContinue reading “E3 for you and me”

Why I need……

My name is Crymson Pleasure of Real Women of Gaming and I need feminism. I’ve been an avid gamer since I was a child and I am sick and tired of being told to prove myself. As a gamer, as a geek, I am more hardcore and passionate about my D&D characters than most peopleContinue reading “Why I need……”

Injustice – Gods Among Us

So, I finished the storyline for Injustice. I don’t think I will actually ever finish the whole game. I’ll give it a shot, but I’m not that awesome at fighting games. Actually, I don’t like fighting games usually. I find the women scantily clad, the best moves to be impossible for me to get offContinue reading “Injustice – Gods Among Us”

Sitting down with Daniel Dineen

I want to thank Daniel Dineen for being my very first audio interview and making my first time entertaining, informative and with great feelings about one of the many communities I participate in.   I hope you enjoy us talking as much as we did. Kisses ~Crymson Pleasure~

A Lesson in Legends

DC Kotei 2014 There is a bit of explaining to do so, you’re not completely lost in all of this. Legend of the Five Rings is a Trading Card Game much like Magic: The Gathering or Pokemon, but much cooler because I play it. Kotei Season The Kotei Season generally runs from February through JuneContinue reading “A Lesson in Legends”

He said what? A male perspective on females in gaming

First of all I would like to thank Crymson Pleasure, and the Real Women of Gaming for the opportunity to give a male perspective on female gamers and females in gaming.  I know, that sounds strange, a male perspective.  I’ve seen arguments and debates end with a line similar to – you’re a man, whatContinue reading “He said what?

Gaming Couples

There seems to be a lot of stigma surrounding the ever elusive creature known as the ‘gaming couple.’ I have heard a lot of negative things about gaming couples and very little positive. I also hear a lot of crap directed at one person or the other in the relationship. “Oh she only plays XContinue reading “Gaming Couples”
