Cosplay: Avengers Assemble

This week’s Cosplay is dedicated to the awesome Avengers movie, if you haven’t seen it yet, go, it’s awesome. By the way, all these characters were in the Avengers comics at one time or another, trust us we looked it up to be sure.

You need to Grow Up

The title is fitting in a post titled, “Fappathon”, but this is about the idea that those who play games past a certain age need to grow up. Now with more and more people playing some form of games you do hear it less, but there are still many who see anyone past their low twenties playing a game and think that they need to grow up.

Sure, there are those who take it too far. If you are skipping work, neglecting your hygiene or health or your kids or education then fine. For most of us it is the same as watching television, talking on the phone or building a model airplane, (Do people still do that?).

Games are a form of entertainment just like anything else and one should not give it up because the reach a certain age. I think far too often we think becoming an adult means following the herd. Perhaps you were not made to be married with three kids, a crappy job and an angry wife by age 30. Maybe you will work in your office job playing PC games in your spare time and hopefully live a happy life.

No one should tell you how to enjoy your own time, again, unless you are hurting someone by doing so and I mean really hurting them. Your crazy girlfriend who thinks you should be spending your game time walking her pet cat Mr. Whiskers does not count. However, always remember to play with the pussycat or you won’t have a girlfriend for long.

Hold on to your balls my gamers and this goes for the girl gamers too who has that, one in a million weird boyfriend who hates on you for being a gamer girl. Dump him and call me, I co-own a gaming website. Seriously, though, everyone deserves to have the time to do what they enjoy and for many of us that is a video game. You don’t have to completely understand why we like it, we will never understand why you love Jersey Shore, but we hold our nose as we go in the next room so do us a favor and just do the same when we load up Diablo 3.

Now, on with the Fapp.

The end of Video Game Stores?

The question many have is will there still be video game stores within the next five years. I think the answer is yes, but how many will there be and how will they look? When more and more people began ordering their comic books online or even reading them there some comic book stores took a hit.  However, there was still that loyalty and personal touch that keep people going in. Perhaps that is what will happen with video game stores.

With outlets like Steam, Origin and Windows Marketplace there are less and less reasons to buy a game at a retailer. Sure, some people want the box or items inside be it manuals or a collector’s addition and that is the same as the comic book customer who wants to be there in the store picking out their comic, looking for new ones and talking shop with the people there.

Now big chain stores that sell other items will still keep major hits in stock because someone will buy a game while picking up an HDTV, but what about the chain video game store? We have already seen many close, but thanks to reselling of old games and the need to quickly by a controller or battery I could see a good number of them surviving. Perhaps we will see a merger where video game stores offer more as less people will have media to trade in.

So is this a good thing, to be able to get your media online at any time or do you need to have the disk in your hand and know you can return it or trade it in? With the new consoles coming out rumor is that disks are on the way out and soon everything will be downloadable in one manner or another. How many of you would notice, how many would care?

On with the Cosplay.
