MCV has lead a sheltered life

Despite the weather being shittier than the arse-end of a diarrhetic goat, that's been on a kidney bean diet, it definitely is summer. And in the world of video games, that means the annual summer games drought- because publishers think it's a good idea to release all their big titles around christmas, so there's a distinct lack of big releases around this time of year. Which is why you read the utter bullshit, masquerading as news, that somehow catches on. Because, what the fuck else there to write about between E3 and the christmas rush? Masturbating toys, that's what!

After 30 years of being a bloke, Link should stay that way

As of late, gaming has been going through a bit of upheaval. A lot of changes have been occurring. Whether you like them or not, change is inevitable, especially in a industry that so embraces innovation as video games. Well, frankly, I'm sick to the tits with change. Especially with this new idea of taking established characters and changing their gender/race/sexuality/favourite flavour of pringles. I'm all for progression- after all, I just changed my usual brand of shampoo- but taking classic video game characters, and vandalising what makes them as iconic as they are is a bridge too far.
