Post #10: Zero Sight: Bad Call

Hello my lovelies!

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!

Great, huh?

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!

Post #9: Gamer Girl Writer Wanted!

Hello lovelies!

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 domesticmajestic@gmail.com. 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!

A Gamer Girl’s Guide: How to Have Your Cake and Eat it Too!

Hello there all you gamer girls! We may be the abnormalities of society, but we need love too! My name is Chelsea and I will help anyone with particular questions about the life and times of female gamers and geeks, as I am one myself. I also happen to be dating a gamer guy, so I can get advice from the other side, too – relationships or otherwise.

My personal favorites happen to be Skyrim, Portal, and Minecraft, though I know my way around Modern Warfare 3 as well. I also play a little tiny bit of Magic: the Gathering and D&D and I watch a little Anime, but even with all of this I’m only scratching the surface. Heck, my video game career only started with Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. Before that I knew nothing of the video game world.

So how did I get into gaming and Geekville? Honestly, I have no idea. I guess I have a lot of guy friends who talk about the wonders of the mythology of the Elder Scrolls too much and a boyfriend who can “No-Scope” the entire opposing team in seconds on MW3. I guess I also spend a little too much time in my own fantasy land – I can thank Harry Potter and my ADD for that.

But is there a life outside of gaming? For some, that’s questionable. You’ve heard of those people who have to go to rehab for World of Warcraft, right? For me, though, there’s a bit more going on. I’m a college student; an Art Therapy major, actually. I make art (plus some crappy comics based on my Skyrim experiences), have friends (some of which are as nerdy as myself), obsess over a couple of TV shows (like Supernatural), and I’m writing a fantasy novel.

I’m here to help! Ask me any questions about the lives of gamers or how to get their attention; I’ll do my best to answer them, even if it means doing a little research.
