I’m A Gamer And A Girl

It’s kind of crazy the things you hear people say in online gaming. If I didn’t know better I would think most gamers are racist, homophobic or sexist, in reality I think the problem is immaturity. My actual name is Laddie and generally I use the name Laddie13 for online and gaming purposes. This is confusing due to the fact that I’m a girl. Once I’m found out I often get either guys hitting on me or insults because some guys think girls only play the Wii or casual games like FarmVille. The latter is usually due to the fact that I am playing better than they are. If I’m playing something like free for all with a random group I won’t even turn the mic on. You would think no one would even know I’m a girl but that’s not always the case because on several occasions I’m referred to as Lady13.
I like to say that I was born with a controller in my hand and since I started at a very young age it’s not that much of an exaggeration. I consider myself a hardcore gamer, the fact that I’m female shouldn’t be an issue but often it is. It’s not all bad though, I’ve received just as much if not more respect and admiration from guys that think there’s nothing cooler than a girl gamer. None of my female friends are gamers so I get it, gaming is a predominantly male past time. However when I go into GameStop to buy a FPS, please don’t insult me and ask if I’m picking it up for my boyfriend. Read more: I’m A Gamer And A Girl

After a hiatus, Metal Gear Rising reemerged with a name modification, new developer and a smoking extended trailer. Now set some time after Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Revengeance will tell a tale of the cyborged to the hilt Raiden in an all out action game. The sneaking is pretty much gone, hence the dropping of the “Solid” part of the title. Players get to concentrate on slicing and dicing enemies like a true ninja cyborg equipped with a high-frequency katana should. How can you go wrong with dismembering PMCs, other enhanced baddies and even Metal Gears?
The game got a shift to Platinum Games, with Kojima Productions over seeing the shenanigans. Platinum, home of Bayonetta and Vanquish, is leaving their over the top action mark all over the title. Some fans felt slighted by the new direction but I can tell you I’m excited for the game. As a very long time Metal Gear gamer, I think it’s time to slaughter some enemies in style. I mean the original version wanted to reward us for not killing bad guys, now we get to! That’s a win in my book! Hit the jump to check out some new screens and the extended trailer. Make sure to watch the end of the trailer for an old-school MGS bit.
