As I think back to some of the great in game items over the years, it is the simple things that stick in my mind.
 
It also got me thinking,

"What Would Look Cool On A Keyring?"
 
So I began to list out all my favourite in game items over the years gone by in the hope that one day I will own a 3D Printer and will be able to make my 
"Key Ring Dreams" come true! :)

☆ Who Is Your Favourite Female Video Game Character Of All Time? ☆ #GamersUnite

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Back in the early days of Video Games, females in games were put there to be rescued by the brave & dashing hero in the game.
 
They were normally taken by an evil dude who took them to a castle / hideout in order to draw the hero to the bad guy's lair.
 
Pretty primitive and basic plot, but that sufficed as the sole reason for a female characters for a long time.
 
This primitive inclusion of females has evolved over the years as video games have matured and especially as video games now look to try and tell a story.
 
For me this has become apparent much more so than ever before whilst playing through TheWalkingDead and The Last Of Us, where in both games the female character is not just a helpless sap waiting to be rescued, they are the ones doing the rescuing.
 
This has inspired me to try and dig into the history of females in video games to try and illustrate the way the industry is very slowly maturing on this front.

Robot Gentleman so we took some time to find out more about this cool video game.

"I was watching the Street Fighter movie the other day, and was thinking this is truly awful. 
I mean, why would anyone cast Kylie Minogue as Cammy? Is she English? (no, but I suppose she can attempt an accent). 
Can she act? (um I suppose she was fine in Neighbours) 
and does she have a martial arts background? (nope).

What's the most memorable thing about Bioshock?
 
The jaw dropping twist in the tale?

The amazing gameworld?

OR

That first encounter with a BIG DADDY!!??!!
 
For me it was most definitely the moment when you experience the awesome power and devastating scariness of the BIG DADDY!
 
It was a defining moment in the last generation of video games.
 
One where you are genuinely scared........
 
Yesterday I had a repeat of one of those moments........

The Pang Man Is Back In The Freezer!
This Time Our Main Man Takes A Look At Forbidden Planet And All Its Video Games Related Wares......
Let's See What The Pang Man Has To Say,
"During my uni days, I would often have a spare hour or two between lectures. So with a bit of time to kill, what did I do, study? Nah, of course not! Instead, I would often pop down to one of my favourite stores in Central London, Forbidden Planet
The thing I loved about Forbidden Planet was that they had a bit of everything for the cult/fantasy/sci-fi/ enthusiast, from movie posters and books, to cult magazines and comics.
Now you may be wondering, what does this have to do with the wonderful world of video gaming? 
Well, I vaguely remembered that the store sold a decent selection of gaming related merchandise. 
So to check that my memories weren’t playing tricks on me, I went to revisit Forbidden Planet yesterday to see what goodies they had in stock.
