The Professional Gamer - June 19, 2017

Hi everyone! I hope you all have had a good week and have enjoyed Chris's coverage of E3. I was excited to see lots of stuff that Nintendo has coming up for the next year. I didn't really thing that I was going to be interested in the Breath of the Wild downloadable content, but the "Trial of the Sword" actually looks very interesting. On the other hand, I have essentially no desire to try playing the game in Hard Mode; the game is already pretty hard. The Hero's Path seems like a bit of a gimmick, but might still be fun to use anyways. 

Super Mario Odyssey is looking like a fun game as well, and I've enjoyed watching Twitter joking about the how Mario takes over other people's bodies. Including joke about Mario taking over the body of an average business person on the street while they are talking to their spouse.

Last on my cool E3 news list is the announcement of Metroid Prime: 4. At this point, we don't know anything about the game, but I'm hopeful that returning to the Prime series will be a magnificent rebirth for the Metroid series. I heard such bad things about the most recent games, that I didn't even give them a chance. I'm hoping that things will be better for this game. In the end, I'm cautiously optimistic for this new game.

That's all I've got for now. Have a great week and game on!

The Past Returns

All the way back in the year 2003 I took a sociology class. In this class we were assigned a paper where we had to write about how a class of people is viewed in society. I, being the person I am, wanted video games to be my research material. The paper was written, submitted and graded (got an A on it by the way), and then lost, or so I thought. I was rather sad about this as I also met my wife in the class I wrote this paper in. Well recently, when doing some clean up of old hard drives, I found the original paper. So here I give you, the readers of The Gameslave, my sociology paper titled "Woman's Role in Entertainment: Does Time Matter".
