Get Your Game On Wednesday
Howdy Wednesday, my gaming lovelies! The sun is shining and I’m trying to figure out what my next mobile game should be. If you have any suggestions, shoot them my way in the comments.
Lost in Lacquer is a sweet little blog on nail design with its own section for Video Game nails. The looks are inspired by video games, making them elegant and subtle. Her color combinations are so pretty, making me wish I was more skilled at painting my own nails. Guess I’ll have to watch Masha’s blog and daydream.
As games have become more story driven and complex, so has the work of the voice actors voicing characters in the game. Video game publishers and voice actors have been in contract negotiations. The long running discussion may be coming to a head with SAG-AFTRA union considering a strike. Since the news broke, it looks like the two parties have since agreed to a media blackout, so we’ll have to patiently wait and see what happens.

After three years and a successful Kickstarter campaign, the new RPG game Undertale is available on Steam. In the game, you’re a human trapped in an underworld of monsters. You need to get out in order to go home, but killing is unnecessary.
Nothing makes me happier than when my love of gaming and supporting women in STEM come together. Announced back in March, the folks at Cards Against Humanity are funding the Science Ambassador Scholarship, a full tuition scholarship for a woman seeking an undergraduate degree in science, engineering, or math. The funds come from sales of their Science Pack expansion. Applications are due by December 1, 2015.
I have been curious about how a studio follows up on the soothing beauty of a game like Monument Valley. If the trailer is any indication, they managed to step up their game with Land’s End. The game, designed for Samsung’s Gear VR headset, is due out October 30.
Hope your week is the best just like this guy who got a working Mortal Combat game cabinet off Craigslist for free! Brings back arcade nostalgia. <sniff> Til next week, happy gaming!
