Since when do girls play video games?

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , , on February 13, 2012 by theerivs

We all know that women that play video games are just G.I.R.L.’s (or Guys In Real Life), am I right?  Morrigu thought I was a troll and wrote this scathing rebuttle, which I had to laugh, she didn’t realize I was just joking, and having some fun, and that I really dig her stuff..

Why post all the half naked women?  Let’s be honest with each other, I post alot of half naked women on my blog.  So why then,  I love the female form, I find beauty in it. This is my corner of the web, and as you think I am objectifying women, I am posting these pictures in homage to them. I love women to a fault, I open doors for them, I listen to them, and I can even take directions from them well, especially when they tied me up.

Am I Sexist? Yes I admit I am a tad, it’s how I was brought up in an old school Italian way. I think a man should be a man, and a women should be a women. Though I am a Sith, and we do deal in absolutes, it is no excuse to treat a women any less then a human. That being said I have nothing but respect for women, and girls who are out there on the front lines of video game industry trying to change this male ruled virtual universe.  I treat women as equals when I can.

Do women play video games? Of course they do, and alot of them play better then me. There is a blog on my blog roll that I leave up on there in tribute to her, but Hawty McBloggy is a great Halo/FPS gamer and female.  I served under Female Guild leaders like Amber, in several guilds, and Lillis in Blight.  I served on Mage crews with way better mages then me, and they were female. My fellow bloggers who are female are way better players then I could ever hope to be.

Then why be a jerk about it at times? Some one has to be the bad guy, some one has to be the villian. Alot of people on the blogosphere want to be good guys, but to me things don’t get changed if everyone is saying “there isn’t a problem”, when in truth there is. There is method in my madness, while I hold up a mirror and go this is what is wrong. I am a devil’s advocate, a follower of chaos, and an instrument of change.

Am I humble? Fuck no.

Is that a picture of a chick? Hell No, His name is Kimber James.

Rift- Peer Pressure

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , on January 7, 2011 by theerivs

So it’s like I’m at this party, and everyone asking me have I tried this drink called Rift. I’m like no, I have to drive home. Then I turn the corner and see two hot chicks making out on a couple kegs of Rift. I go, hell yeah gimme a glass of that stuff.

With all the hubbub about Rift, My guildies going to play, and me checking out more info about it. I decided why not give it a shot if I can. So I’m going to try to secure a beta code, and play this game.

I’m going to try not to get to drunk on it, cause really I know me, if I get hyped up. I’m going to be making out with those two chicks, and wake up in the morning wondering where the hell am I, my pants around my ankles, and a Rift Collectors Edition in my hand.

Masterdebation with Rivs, and Bee

Topic: Do Female Players in WoW, have it easier than Male Players?
 
 
Rivs says….
 
I think yes, they have it easier generally. I remember not to long ago I played a girl toon, and tried to play it as a girl…well the stereotypical girl. A lot of giggles, hugs, and dancing naked. I got it things, and gold handed to me. Even the opposite faction would sometimes come up to me and just dance, and flirt with me. I’m sure every girl has a story to tell of that ONE skeevy dude, or jackass that thinks because you have a vagina you’re a little slower on hitting the keyboard, or the young Casanova who goes a little too far, and may or may not even talked to someone with boobs, or maybe he has a wonderful set of man boobs himself and really hasn’t seen a vagina since he came out of one.
 
Just in my normal day-to-day observations, most of the guilds I’ve been  with always had a few female members, and they were fiercely protected, like we were their big brothers. Hell there was a huge fight one time when one guild member said something to a female guild member, but a lot of people protected the female guild member like she needed to be guarded. I didn’t take either side in the matter cause at the time I thought it was all silly.
 
The problem is sometimes we as men, don’t even realize were doing something. We’ve been conditioned to be providers, and defenders of the fairer sex. So when we know it’s a girl we go into the “Male” Mode. There’s been a backlash to this though, most other guys assume that every player is a guy, unless we hear you over vent, or you send us naked photos (my email is cc0926(at)gmail(dot)com.) Oh and by the way all girls sound hot over vent. So maybe girls might get a little oversensitive cause, we are treating you like one of the guys, but that’s another topic.
 
Bottomline I think Girls do have it easier for the most part, because they will most likely get everything they want in the game, even if the suck they will get carried along by their husband, boyfriend, mindless sex slave, and they don’t have to work as hard as us regular Dudes. Easy, you know Bee sort of like you on a Saturday night after a drink or two……

Bee says….

Not too long ago you played a girl toon, like a girl, Riv?  I knew you were into trannies, but this is taking things to a whole new level.  How about we get information on how it is to be a woman in WoW from an actual woman?  This way we won’t have any penis-tucking injuries.

Being an authentic woman, I got my boobs and vagina together and we conferenced about what we feel is easier/harder in WoW because I’m female.  I should preface by saying that I don’t act like the “typical girl” when I play WoW.  I don’t /giggle or /flirt all the time, I don’t dance naked atop the Org bank.  I try to stay pretty low-key.  After checking my statistics I see that I have “hugged” 26 times on my main.  I would venture to say 24 of those hugs were Ally characters that I killed that had yet to rez.

Ok, three things I think are easier:

1.) Easier to get gold. I had been doing BG’s with a warrior a couple of times a month for a while.  If he was on, and I was on at the same time we would group up and do some killing.  He always referred to me as “dude” or “man” or “bro.”  I never chose to correct him, cause really, “Um ‘scuse me ima grrl kthxbai” just never seemed appropriate.  One Saturday him and some guildmates were doing a raid on Stormwind.  He asked me along, and I agreed.  Then came the Vent instructions.  I hesitated at first, but in the end – in the interest of the raid – I obliged.  The second I said something in vent, things changed.  I went from his “Bro” to getting whispers asking for my phone number.  He just kept saying he wanted to text me.  He even offered to buy my cold-weather flying if I passed along my phone number.  5000g for a phone number?   Although a juicy offer, I default to the fact that I’m not a whore.

2.) Performances in BG’s and Raids not as scrutinized. I don’t think women are expected to perform as well as men, and so our performance in dps, heals, etc is not as harshly judged.  This could be great for someone just wanting to get carried, but I think it hurts those females that really want to get better and could use constructive criticism.  This, of course, does not apply to me as I am the leetest Disc priest to grace Azeroth. I can already sense Riv’s jealousy of this point.  Think how nice it would be if women weren’t constantly scrutinizing your performance

3.) Easier to get invites into Raids. *Lonely gamer-boy thinks to himself* If I invite her then maybe she’ll send me pics/cyber with me! I did a GDKP ICC 25man last week where it was required to have a 5k gear score and 3000g.  Every person was supposed to show gold to the raid leader before they would be considered.  I got in, without anyone viewing my gold. Before Marrowgar someone asked why I hadn’t said anything yet.  When I said “hello” in vent it was followed by man-giggles.  

And three things that I think are harder:

1.) An initial respect for my gaming skill. I believe female gamers are seen as weaker than male gamers.  And (don’t hate me ladies) I think there is some truth behind that.  I’m not saying that men are programmed to be better at games than women. I just think that society is more accepting of a male gamer than a female gamer. The more socially acceptable something is, the easier the path to success and skill becomes. Also, I think a majority of women that play WoW, began playing it because their husband/boyfriend plays.  When I go bowling with a boyfriend, I rarely win – and no, it’s not because I’m a bad bowler.  Every guy needs a good ego stroking from time to time.  Also, since us women are the more caring of the sexes, we will participate in activties that we normally could give two shits about, just to make you happy.  News flash: No women like UFC.  You say she tells you she likes it? She’s lying.  But look at the bright side, she must care about you an awful lot to sit through bloody man-on-man groping.

2.) Playing WoW being a socially acceptable thing among your friends. I would explain further, but I think that Mary over at npccomic.com sums it up perfectly here.  – Yeah, all of my male friends know I play WoW.  They also know what WoW is.  I would say 2 of my female friends know I game and neither one of them has ever heard of WoW.

3.) The penises of male WoW players. What can I say? I’ve been told I have a very sexy vent voice.

🙂

To sum things up:  I think for actual play in the game – women do have it easier.  But when it comes to the balance of gaming/real life and being respected as a “real” player – it’s much more difficult to be a girl. Also, we’ve learned that Riv not only likes trannies, he aspires to be one.

Now gather round, I’m the new fool in town…

 Hiya! *waves*

For those of you that don’t know me, I’m Bee. I’m very excited to be doing weekly posts for High Latency Life. I want to give a little background information on myself so you’ll know where these opinions and ramblings are coming from.  So here you go. Sort of a FAQ of Bee. In no particular order…

  • I’ve played WOW since April of 2009. It’s typically the only gaming I do.  Well, unless you count Chuzzle.
  • My main is a Discipline Priest.
  • She’s been 80 for about 6 months.  
  • Horde FTW.
  • The first character I ever leveled was a hunter who now, at 76, idles in the Sunreaver Sanctuary.
  • The moment I began playing Battlegrounds with my priest (around level 17) I knew she’d be my main. 
  • PVP is what I love, battlegrounds most specifically.  I’ve been working on gearing up and attempting to get better at arena play.  I just can’t figure out how to pillar hump and mana burn at the same time.  I end up not doing either one very efficiently.
  • After hitting 80 I joined an amazing guild that has made the game much more fun to me.  I’ve actually gotten involved with raiding, which is not something I saw happening for this PVP-oriented player. 
  • The third time I ever healed an instance it was heroic Forge of Souls.  In blue PVP gear.  It did not go so well.
  • My guild and I have successfully cleared 10/12 normal ICC 10 and 6/12 normal ICC 25. 
  • I’m a girl in real life. With boobs and everything.
  • I’m 29 years old.
  • My dad and younger brother have always been a big video game/comic book/action figure fans/gamers so I believe that is where my interest in gaming has sprung from.  The first RPG I ever played was Ultima Underworld. I’ve also played quite a few of the Heroes of Might and Magic series. 
  • I graduated from college in 2003 with a B.S. in Business Administration/Human Resource Management.  While there I served as president of my sorority. 
  • I am currently employed as a banker for a national bank in the US.

Any other things you wanna know?  Just ask!


And because it just happened and I want to bring it up…

Earlier this week, myself and a few guildies decided it to PUG a 25 man ICC.  The elusive “last-minute Monday night run”.  Needless to say, it was not the crème de la crème of WOW elite. We wiped on trash TWICE because some hunter had his pet on aggressive. I can see that happening once, we all make mistakes – but twice?? Seriously???

Anyways, we eventually were able to clear through Saurfang.  It was by no means smooth sailing. But I am a total whore for my priest marks.  I need these babies like I need way more answers then the LOST series finale provided.

The only other reason I put myself through a painful 25 man PUG is because I want my own personal Frozen Bonespike.  That way I can bonespike myself whenever I want. Oh, and it’s also my best in slot.

Dildo jokes aside.  For the second time in my history of running 25man The Bonespike dropped.  And for the second time in my history of running 25man I was out-rolled by a mage – This time, a mage without a single gem in his equipped gear. Empty gem slots just sitting there, waiting to be filled with juicy haste and spell power…. *guh*

Yeah, I really need to get bonespiked.

A New Voice…

A Tip…

Before I get into what’s going to be happening around here…I feel for the plight of my Tailors who now thanks to Blizzard, and the cloth changes,  are hard pressed to make some money these days. What I found are still selling good are Sapphire SpellThreads. Even when I have to buy the mats 4 Eternal fire at 80 gold, 1 Frozen Orb for 20 gold, and 4 IceWeb Webbing which goes for 5 gold per on my server, so for 120 gold, and I sell for 200gold, I make 80 gold profit per. Tuesdays, and Thursdays are real good day to post them too cause those are raid days. Of course look around for prices if you can get Frozen Orbs for cheaper than eternal fire’s then buy the orbs and exchange them in Dalaran.

A New Voice….

Well I was thinking alot lately, and I want a little break now and then so I invited someone to write some stuff. She calls herself  Bee, she is a faithful reader, and commenter on my blogs for a while. I was thinking, it’s time to get a fresh voice here at High Latency Life. I talk about my penis, and swing my balls around like I was demolishing a building around here. I thought it would be nice to have someone to maybe clean this blog up a little, a lighter touch to subjects,  a ying to my yang so to speak.  Thursdays is going to be her day,I gave her free reign on that day…. but I plan to put her to work, test her, and bring out the animal with in. I plan to corrupt her to become a vessel of hate like myself then send her out into the virtual world…..Oh wait I said too much.

Well tomorrow she is going to introduce herself to you, and I for one welcome her to the High Latency Family, and hope you do as well.  Good Luck Bee.
