The Positivity Behind Twitch Plays and People – Positive Gamers

Oh, your eyes do not deceive you my friend. After like two months of hiatus and radio silence from me on Positive Gamers, I’m back! Praise the helix for giving me a wonderful idea for this episode. Twitch Plays Pokemon was incredible, I think we can all agree, but I’ll take it even further and say it’s a great example of how amazing humans can be and all that we can accomplish if we work together.

5 Ways to Support Video Games in Freedom to Read Week

This week marks Freedom to Read Week across Canada. For those of you in the United States, your event, called Banned Books Week isn’t until September, but the information below can hopefully give you a head start on affecting positive change.

Gamers Are Amazing – Gaming Happens

Were you tricked? Did you fall for my sneaky, sneaky plan of making this week’s Gaming Happens episode a Positive Gamers one in disguise?

Gaming Myths and the Friend Zone – Positive Gamers

I know, fedora wearer, you’re thinking, “But the friend zone isn’t a myth!” I know, it’s okay, we’re all prone to believing in things that don’t actually exist. Like bigfoot in San Andreas or Lara Croft’s pointy, nude boobs. But with this episode of Positive Gamers, I’m here to tell you that the friend zone is just as valid as a bunch of other gaming myths. In that it’s not. At all. New Positive Gamers next Monday!

Positive Gamers Episode 8: Experience Points

I’m going to Japan tomorrow to cover TGS this week. For those that don’t know, I love pretty much the entire world. Traveling is one of my favorite things ever, and Japan happens to be number one on my list for a quite some time now. Alas, outside forces have me worrying about things that might have even stopped me from going. How ridiculous is that, amirite? So I got to thinking about taking chances, life, experience, and XP within games. Check [...]
