About Monique Girls Don’t Game the Undying

We’re alive, sort of.

The blame is solely me. I stopped writing and I stopped managing my other writers and now, somewhere, a tumbleweed blows by. There’s this thing with achievements, with Sartharion 3 Drakes (I’m officially “of the Nightfall” and a “Twilight Vanquisher,” with a rare mount to boot!), another thing with a full-time job in the video game industry (want a review copy of our latest game?), Left 4 Dead (Versus in CAL?), Fallout 3 (I haven’t even started it despite owning it), the holidays (I like turkey), college (compsci major)…

Well, you get the point. To top it off, my old PC fried and I built a new PC and I have next to nothing on this PC besides games.

Anyway, this is a quick heads up that things will change and regular posting will resume at some point. Apologies, hope you didn’t kick us off your RSS, and if you did, we’ll just re-earn our spot. I hope 2009 is treating you well and you’re as excited about the upcoming release of Resident Evil 5 as I am.

About Monique Make Love, not Diablo 3 is Warcraft Petitions

A real life enactment of gamers versus developers. Guess who is who? The biggest conundrum of the gaming world isn’t whether video games inspire real life violence or the ongoing console wars. It’s not controversy about Fat Princess being, well, fat either. Honestly, gaming has always been about the relationship between fans and developers—the semantics of when a company should listen and when they shouldn’t.

It’s about the acknowledgment that a company can be right and wrong; the realization that change isn’t always a bad thing, but isn’t always good either. And the simple fact that the angry lynch mobs of gaming should not always be heard.
