The Benefits of Gaming for Disability and Brain Injury Patients

We all know that gaming is fun. I love it, I have for many years and I will continue to for many more to come. It’s something I do most days and quite frankly the idea of going without is a thing of nightmares. The idea of suffering a stroke and no longer being able to do the activities I love due to loss of movement and cognitive function terrifies me, as does the thought of losing the use of my hands through an accident or disorder, and as a self-confessed hypochondriac I tend to think of the possibility and impact of these things far too much. This mere nightmare of mine is however some people’s reality and the admiration I hold for those who don’t let it stop them doing the things they love, cannot be quantified.

Different Levels of Caring: Xbox and Sony vs Nintendo

The current generation is made up of three consoles, with each console doing its best to steal sales and finish number one month after month. Different levels of 'trying' are required. Sony and the PS4 are getting sales regardless of what they do; many of Sony's new following have been swayed by statements (not always necessarily true) made about its number one competitor, Microsoft's Xbox One. Microsoft has more work to do than Sony, although almost completely abandoning Kinect has done wonders for their sales numbers. With a number of high profile releases coming up, Microsoft will be doing just fine come Holiday 2014. Nintendo, on the other hand, lags behind the competition, despite offering quality titles and recently working hard to market their products.

Journalists: Ignore #GamerGate and #NotYourShield at your Peril

The story behind #GamerGate and #NotYourShield is tough to pin down exactly, because there's various origins depending on who you ask. It's either the cruel march of the misogynists, a group of white men tired of having to share their entertainment space with a set of fragile girls and "people of colour" who just want to have a tiny corner of the industry to call their own, or it's a demonstration of how the gaming industry is already a melting pot of ideas, and that this is some attempt at an acknowledgement of a press that has tried to distort the facts to their own gain. The truth is, it doesn't matter what started it, what matters is how it's dealt with, and so few journalists are doing it right.
