Today I want to talk to you about a really cool short film called Zero Sight: Bad Call. I was contacted by the lovely group of women who created it and they asked me to watch it. I did, and it was great!
If you didn’t watch it, basically it’s about this gamer Veronica who is suddenly finds herself with great power in her hands. She steals a cell phone which has the power to kill people with a simple text message! I won’t give any more away because I don’t want to spoil it, but I will say that it’s definitely great!
One thing that I love about this short film is that it shows a female gamer in a good light. She’s not masculine or overly aggressive, but she’s not over-feminized or trivialized either. Because the women who created this film are gamers themselves, they respect female gamers and make a point not to make Veronica, or anyone else for that matter, merely an object or a sex symbol. That doesn’t mean Veronica as a character can’t be attractive; it just means that’s not the main point of her character. That’s what I like about this film. Rather than making it about the fact that she’s a girl, she just happens to be a gamer girl who also happens to be a badass!
In short, I think this is a great short film that respects the genre and is tons of fun! These ladies have done an amazing job with it and I can’t wait to see more from them! I definitely recommend you check it out!

As some of you may know, I’m trying to revamp and this site and my radio show! For this reason, I’ve decided that I want to bring on another gamer girl contributor to work with NightHawk42 (who’ll be back soon!).
As many of you know, I have never been good at video games, so I am looking for a gamer girl contributor to do one post every two weeks on the site. You would work with NightHawk42 and myself to bring the readers really great information about relationships, gaming, and being a gamer girl. Sometimes you would have specific writing assignments, but other times you would be able to write about whatever you want! This is an unpaid position, but it would provide great exposure and it would be tons of fun! Plus, you may also be able to help me host my radio show, which is loosely connected to the blog! I really think this blog could be big, and I would love to start building a great team of writers. 🙂
If you’re interested in writing, send your name, your pen name (if you want to use one), a picture (for the site if you’re chosen), and a two paragraph writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org. The sample can just be a quick review of a game you like! If I like your application, I will email you back with more details!
Thanks! And tell your friends! 🙂
THE DEADLINE IS TOMORROW AT MIDNIGHT EST!! It would be longer but I need someone by Friday! 🙂 If you have special circumstances though, email me and I will try to work something out with you!
I just wanted to apologize to you all for not updating! With finals and starting the podcast, as well as being locked out of my email for this site, things had gotten a little crazy. However, as the title suggests this June is going to be a new beginning for us! I am going to develop a weekly update schedule so that there aren’t any more gaps where I don’t update.
I’m also going to start branching out a bit more and including more posts about relationships in general. Don’t worry, my focus will still be on dating a gamer, I’m just going to expand my reach a bit by covering other pieces of relationships. Gamers are people too, so it would be silly to assume that every minute of dating a gamer is centered around his gaming! (And if it is, dump that sucker!)
I’m also going to keep updating my podcast, College Girl Uncensored! This podcast is mainly about sexuality and sexual health, but it also covers relationships! This means that I can answers your questions in more than one format! If you wanna listen to this podcast, you can find it at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/collegegirluncensored
Well, I think that’s all for this post! Again, I apologize for the delay but I want you all to know that I have never been more dedicated to this site and to you! I think we have some exciting things in the future and I hope you’ll continue to read, listen, and tell your friends!
