REVIEWS Titan Souls Review
Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

StarDrive 2 Review
A 4X strategy game in space. Sounds like a perfect match, right?

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

Women In Games International And Girl Scouts Of LA Create Video Games Patch

Posted on Wednesday, April 17 @ 11:18:02 Eastern by Keri_Honea


Women in Games International (WIGI) has teamed up with the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles (GSGLA) to create the first video game patch for Girl Scouts. The organizations are currently putting together a program for the patch that will allow scouts to create their own video game.

If the patch is successful, then it could become a nationally recognized patch by the Girl Scouts of America. More importantly, WIGI wants this patch to bring something unique to girls thinking about pursuing interests in science, math, engineering, and technology. The Boy Scouts of America already have a similar video game patch.

WIGI's patch program requires using Gamestar Mechanic, E-line's development tool that is used for the National STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) Video Game Challenge. E-line is helping WIGI create a STEM progam for the patch that will meet the Girl Scout patch requirements.

"Creating this badge will get young girls excited in technology and science and let them know that they, too, can have a career in the video game industry," Amy Allison, vice president at WIGI, explained.

Women getting involved in video games and the industry as a whole has been a pretty hot topic all year long. If this patch makes it to the national level, it would be great to see more girls take an interest in video games at such a young age.
