bayonetta a sex symbol driven by men Or a powerful woman?

Theres been lots of talk lately about the great fem fetal bayonetta, 

 some saying that she is the complete male dream others saying she is the empowerment of woman after playing bayonetta 1 I can only say ITS JUST A GAME!! OK looking at the facts she is a strong powerful woman that could kick a man to death, with a swift kick to the balls

and yes she is quite sexy there's no denying it but who really cares? lets face it a strong female character that both sells to male and females I wonder were we have seen that before? 

so its an old story sex sells. from Lara Croft to  bayonetta. its something that happens, playing to gamers needs and desires weather its a man or woman playing its still playing to the needs of the audience  as for other female game characters there's a massive list

the not so sexy but animated Amy rose from sonic the hedgehog
or there's:

  • Samus Aran in Metroid. ...
  • Chun-Li in Street Fighter. ...
  • Cammy in Street Fighter. ...
  • Lara Croft in Tomb Raider. ...
  • Jill Valentine in Resident Evil. ...
  • Claire Redfield in Resident Evil. ...
  • Meryl Silverburgh in Metal Gear Solid. ...
  • Princess Zelda in The Legend of Zelda.

 the point I'm making is there is woman characters in video games and strong ones to , and yes some are out right sexulised like bayonetta, but others are there to kick ass like Anna from tekken perhaps? or Nina? sure still a sexy female character but powerful and strong which takes me back to of course Bayonetta a strong powerful sexy woman that makes one hell of a game.

Ill leave it on that note , what do you think ? are the female characters in video games nothing but a dream driven by men ? Or portrayed as a strong fem fatal figure?

#gamergate and Girl Gamers - NO GIRLS ALLOWED!-

Dear Readers,
                      Today I'm going to Touch on a topic I think needs to be addressed, of course the big thing right now is #GAMERGATE and #STOPGAMERGATE.

from what I understand #GAMERGATE is marking the corruption with game developers and the people that review the games,

Now I'm all for the truth, I'm totally against corruption I am supporting #GAMERGATE for this reason and this reason alone. Both me and RES1080p believe making a review of any game it needs to be 100% truth , ( yes we have been burned before with games not being as good as some trusted  YouTuber's have said ) Learning from that we vowed never to post a video with a paid for review only showing the good parts never and the bad. No matter what the price its just not worth it. Being on the other end we know it SUCKS!

There's one part of #GAMERGATE that worries us both, of course its the hate on girl gamers knowing a few girl gamers our selves we can see how it effects them from the Hate , to the rape threats  then out right death threats  and why ? its simple because they can. Its easy to hide away on the Internet making threats to woman when you don't need to show your face,  playing games like battlefield, COD and dayz (yup Ive seen it on dayz as well! )  I can fully understand if the girl is acting like a total Bitch distracting all from the game at hand but what if she isn't ? what if she is simply trying to play the game for fun ? does that mean she needs to have the same abuse purely because shes a girl ?
Ask your selves this , would you walk up to a woman/girl in real life who was just standing there playing the game of life (working hard paying the bills doing the shopping etc..)  and say the same thing ? well of course not ! so why when a girl is playing games online do gamers feel the need to do the same thing ? most girl gamers I know are to afraid now to use a mic in game in case such threats happen and to be honest who can blame them?

As for the controversy surrounding Zoe Quin well lets look at the facts,
OK shes a indie game Dev with a pissed of ex who chances are may of wanted to get revenge on her, as its the Internet we may never know the full story from the exes blog stating she slept with a game reporter
for a better review on her game , to the response from the Kotaku's editor-in-chief stating , two had been involved in a relationship, but stated that Grayson had not written anything about Quinn after the relationship had commenced and that he had never reviewed her games .While Grayson had written an article about the failed GAME_JAM web reality show that Quinn participated in and Kotaku had also mentioned her game, both occurred before the relationship began . Although the accusations of favourable coverage were refuted, the incident led to broader allegations on social media that game developers and the gaming press are too often closely connected and that cultural criticism of video games has led to an increasing focus on social representation and cultural meaning in games by some video games writers. A number of commentators within and outside the games industry denounced the attack on Quinn as misogynistic and unfounded.

so what do we end up with ? as I said before it the Internet you cant tell if its real , fake , or a troll on a power trip all you can do is take it with a pinch of salt and hope for the best , this though is still no excuse for the way girl gamers are treated. 
one thing is for sure ....

So ill end on that note let me know what you think below id love to hear your thoughts !

Pewdiepie's Own Youtube Network? - Network Pewd's

Pewdiepie is thinking of leaving current network "maker" and making his own YouTube network! 
 This due to his current network "maker" (Now owned by Disney) Not being up to scratch, Offering too little and being managed in an incredibly poor way.(His words)
So is the YouTube community going to get 31 million new Youtubers? Is the bro army going to completely take over ? ?
 Now before any of the bro army gets their knickers in a massive twist and have their period early understand this, I do enjoy Pewdiepie's video's & his work for charity is great as well. The only thing I can't stand is the Bro Army's bully boy tactics to get everyone to love him , Before too long i can see the church of the Bros happening ! I don't think I've seen one video of Pewdiepie's where if someone Say's nope don't like it, Everyone else basically treats that one person like dirt. Whatever happened to free speech? 

As for Pewdiepie's possibly new network I might take a look.
Has the bro army gone to far ? Should Pewdiepie leave maker and make his own ? He told the Wall Street Journal that he grossed over $4 million in 2013. Surely he could afford to set up his own network the question is should he and does Pewd's have the patience to do so ?

One question  I have to ask myself is a simple one , Yeah Pewds does have a  lot of followers, But are most of his Bro Army there for the ride ? Subbing him as it's the in thing to do ?  Again to the Bro Army, I do enjoy his videos , So please don't bite my head off when I say this. I can't help but think Pewds is just a long time fad waiting to burn out. If so who would be the new king or queen of YouTube ? 
 It's a crown that I don't think a lot of Youtubers would want to bear , I can imagine its lonely and scary at the top.

On a lighter note tomorrow I'll be reviewing the latest agents of shield episode and doctor who! 
let us know what you think below we'd love to hear from you.

Following the news about Sam Pepper - The YouTuber currently facing the chop.     Well there's not much to say , Yes the girls do have a valid point he is a complete arse towards girls , and yes there is loads of evidence showing that , From rape claims to basically bulling for pictures of under age girls. We have to remember though we are not the police we cant judge we aren't the police its down to them , I'm not saying he is Innocent far from it, On a personal view it does seem that the evidence is against him is mounting up.  His whole excuse of it being  social experiment seems very hollow , What ever the out come its down to the police at the end of the day.
