I have been a feminist for as long as I can remember. When pastors at church would talk about a wife obeying her husband or the man being the head of household, I never understood why. What makes a man better than a woman? I never bought into the sexist ideals society pushed. So, it was no surprise to anyone that I would want to participate in the Women’s March in Fresno this year.

Jessica’s January Video Game News

2018 is going to be a big year for games. Red Dead Redemption 2, Far Cry 5, Sea of Thieves, and Wolf Among Season 2 are just some of the exciting games coming to players this year. I am overwhelmed by the amount of games I am wanting to play. 2017 is going to be a hard year to beat, but I think developers are up for the challenge. Unfortunately, January is a dead month for video games.

2017 has been a great year for video games. Popular series have been reborn and game stories have become more in depth. The voice actor strike put a damper on the gaming industry this year, but it still managed to produce several brilliant games.

October means Halloween which means a lot of horror games to play. Horror games are not all that are released in October but that is the majority. Let’s players have horror-thons of indie horror games and big release horror games. This October has been a mix of horror and games set in the past, as well as some fun cartoon adventures.

September has been an exciting month for video games. The summer had some great games, but September has got the ball rolling once more. From racing games to space adventures, this month’s video game releases have got it all.

Game releases this month have varied in genre and popularity. From visual novel games to fast paced action games, there has been something for everyone at the end of summer. I continue to play Dream Daddy (which I talked about last month) because of its varying decisions and endings. Because of this I have been too distracted to play any of these August released games myself, but I look forward to starting some soon.

Unfortunately July was a slow month for video games. The summer tends to be slow as developers are busy making games for the holiday season. Summer is a big time for movies but not much for video games.

So many video games have come out in April, it would be impossible to play them all. But that does not stop people from trying. Let’s plays (videos of people playing a video game) have been uploaded at high levels this month.
