Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages Review

Now, way back when I reviewed A Link to the Past I revealed to you that I’ve never beaten Oracle of Seasons. Well, I decided to try to play its sister game Oracle of Ages just to prove to myself I can play a relatively old Zelda title.

Console: GameBoy, but I played it on the big screen via GameCube
Difficulty level: Not as difficult as A Link to The Past but more difficult than any other Zelda I’d previously played
Best Item: Toss up between Seed Shooter and Switch Hook. This is good as these are both necessary for the final boss…

Have we moved away from gaming stereotypes?

An interesting guest post about stereotypes in Games and #Gamergate by a reader.

With the recent news of Gamergate taking over social media campaigns left, right and centre, the issue of the stereotypical ‘gamer’ has come to light to viewers around the world.

If you hadn’t heard of it, the widely used hashtag originated as a means to talk about ethics in gaming journalism, but has since become the symbol of campaigners who want to highlight the issue of women and minorities in gaming.
