GAMING: Pokemon Crystal Randofuser – Part 1: The Slamma

Hey Eggheadz! We’ve got something new for you – we’re doing a Pokemon Crystal Randofuser Nuzlocke run!

What the hell is that, you say? The Pokemon Crystal Randofuser is a randomizer program for Pokemon Crystal with a unique twist – instead of just randomizing the Pokemon, it mashes them together with others to create all-new Pokemon hybrids! We’ll be playing a version of Crystal altered with this program along with Nuzlocke rules – meaning that all Pokemon that faint must be released, and we can only catch the first Pokemon in an area.

So jump right in, and join us on a journey of unimaginable heartbreak and disappointment as we make valuable, irreplaceable friends that die forever! FUN!

Top 10 Spaceworld Beta Pokemon

Possibly the biggest news in video game archiving history so far has been broken: A complete copy of the Pokemon Gold and Silver demo from Spaceworld 1997 has been leaked!

The full contents of the leak are being compiled by @TeamSpaceWorld into a table that you can view on Google Docs. To see the new Pokemon, just click on the ‘Pokemon’ tab at the top of the page.

GAMING: The Uncle Who Works For Nintendo

The Uncle Who Works For Nintendo 01

The Uncle Who Works For Nintendo is a text-based horror game, created by writer Michael Lutz and artist Kimberly Parker. Released on October 15, 2014 to minor fanfare and coverage on websites like Kotaku, it tells a poignant horror story about growing up in the 1990s and the violence that people who love games commit upon each other.

Video games are one of the archetypical boys’ clubs amongst boys’ clubs. The exclusion of women, people of color, queer people, and any combination of the former has been a long ingrained problem within the community. And frequently, these minority people are pitted against each other to prove who is the “truest” fan of video games. Any woman who has even a passing interest in gaming will be familiar with the threat of not being considered a “true gamer”. Women are constantly being forced to prove the simple reality that they consume video games like their male peers.

When women are forced to constantly prove their love of games, it frequently forces them to start questioning other women’s credentials about video games. Women who proclaim themselves to be “not like other girls” and as “one of the boys” frequently exhibit a deep internalized misogyny, thinking that they are better than other women for having somehow successfully proven how much like a man they are. When women start fighting with other women on who gets to play video games, the only winners are the men who dictate them to fight against each other for their approval.

The Uncle Who Works For Nintendo is about this kind of in-fighting. Read On…
