Tekken 7 is for the ladies, gentleman…

I came up with this awesome plan to give lady gamers a chance to shine:

 

I noticed that as Tekken 7’s release nears, there’s much talk about the game.  What’s even better, is much of the talk is from ladies who aren’t afraid to show their skills, snatch a few wigs and take a few loses in the process.  As a Tekken player, I’m heavily inspired by this and I want to show the Interwebs (and the world) that we ladies are here to kick ass and take names!

Tekken7ladiesnight

So, I came up with a Tekken 7: Ladies Retribution (or Fight Night), an event that will happen once a week and will be in conjunction with Fight Club. (The name is subject to change)  This will be an open lobby night streamed live on my Twitch page, where ladies will battle opposing PS4 crews to reign supreme.  It’s all fun for ladies to shine and a fun way to make a name for ourselves all while showing who’s boss.

During this contest: the match ups are 3 out of 5 rounds, consisting of an undefeated champion that will hold the crown until he or she is beaten.  If there are crews competing (all crews will be on the PS4), each member of a crew will go up against a member of the opposing crew for three whole rounds.  The last match-up is the top gamer for each crew; Same rules apply as single player.   If anyone wants to join in during for singles, then they will be included.  Once the champion is reached, no one can join in.

There’s quite a bit of time before this event will begin, but I promise it’ll be one worth the wait.  If you are a lady gamer who plays (or will play) Tekken 7 and you are interested in coming to the party or being part of the PS4 Party chat to play one on one, write below or contact me on Twitter.

#AskNeish Q&A #5

Hey everyone –

Since I haven’t done an #AskNeish Q&A post in a while, I decided to make this blog post an #AskNeish… well that was until I made a Twitter poll to see whether majority wanted a podcast or a blog post.

This #AskNeish podcast (released this Wednesday) was done in one take, so there was no editing involved at all.

 

I was extremely nervous when recording this, since I’ve never done a podcast before .  But, after doing it, it wasn’t so bad, so I may continue doing #AskNeish as a podcast.

Let me know if you like #AskNeish in podcast format and I’ll continue it that way.  In the meantime, you can catch up on the previous #askneish posts here: [x], [x], [x], [x]. To submit a question, be sure to hit me up on Twitter with the hashtag: #askneish.

Fighting Game LOG #1: Skullgirls

fightinggamelog1

Hey everyone –

Two weeks ago, I made the introduction to my Fighting Game [V]Log Series.  I’m very happy with the positive feedback from it and I’d like to thank everyone who took the time out to watch the video and comment on it (or give me feedback on Twitter). I wasn’t sure whether I should make the first episode a blog entry or a video, so I took to Twitter to poll the answer.

While awaiting the poll results, my editing software (which happens to be Blender, the same software I use to make 3d models such as this one here) chose to have an off day and crash every fifteen minutes, so I figured I’d rather blog this first entry and fix up the video later on in the week.

I’m happy to finally have the first part of this series done for you all to read so:

Let’s kick off Fighting Game Log #1 with Skullgirls

Fighting Game LOG: Intro

Hey everyone!

I just uploaded my first ever video on YouTube!! It’s a short, yet quick intro to my fighting game vlog series, where I take on the challenge of getting back into playing fighting games and getting over my fear of ‘sucking’ at them.  Throughout this series, I’ll show my progress and game play in these three games: Skullgirls, The Last Blade and Brawlhalla.

If many like the intro, I’ll continue with the first vlog to the series featuring the game Skullgirls (which will be uploaded to YouTube next Monday).  I hope you like it and I hope you enjoy this vlog series (and my journey) as I get back into playing fighting games.

For those that would like to read it in blog form I’ll post it below (along with the video right below it):

#AskNeish Q&A #3

A/N: Before I introduce this post, I’d just like to say thank you to everyone that took the time out to read my blog, share it on social media (so far) and write to me on social media.  I really appreciate it!

Hey everyone-

I decided to do another #AskNeish post, since it was long overdue.  I made the hashtag (on Twitter) to answer any questions anyone has on gaming, comics and overall in the nerd and geek culture that they want me to answer.  Here are a few more for you to see my answers to and for you to answer as well.  Continue reading

My Top 10 Anticipated Games of E3 2016

E3-2016

E3 2016 was the first year I wasn’t very enthusiastic about the gaming conferences as a whole.  Although I’m a PC gamer, the Microsoft and Sony E3 conferences were the most exciting for me.  My Twitter certainly showed my excitement with active live tweeting that pursued all day as well as my interaction with other gamers who follow my Twitter page and who were just passing by.

I wished this list was longer, but many of the games didn’t catch my interest this year.  I hope while many of them are in development the future updates change my mind and I become excited over the ones that didn’t make this list. Continue reading

#AskNeish answers to Q&A #2

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the slight intermission.  I took a slight “Internet Break” to ease my mind and improve my art.  During that time, I’ve gotten quite a few #askneish questions in my private messages (because some people wanted to remain anonymous). Before you read this set of questions, be sure to check out the first batch here before reading: Continue reading

5 Female Gamer Commandments

A/N: this is a gender biased post.  I’m not bashing men, but I am empowering female gamers.  No flaming or trolls, please.

I remember back in grade school, when I was judged and teased for playing video games.  I don’t know what it was about being a girl who played video games, but for most it wasn’t the ‘norm’.  Let’s jump to the present: although there have been studies that show that women game more than men nowadays, some still take it upon themselves to judge the women that do play video games.

I took it upon myself to list five commandments for all women that play video games.  I’m sure most women feel the same way I do, whether they voice their opinions (or not).  Although I know there will be disagreements with this piece, I hope (mostly) everyone is on the same page. Continue reading
