Welcome to Gamnesia's official launch! What is Gamnesia, you ask? Simply put, it is an all new video game news, editorial, review, and whatever-other-shenanigans-we-want-to-do website that now takes the place of all extra non-Zelda coverage at Zelda Informer. In many ways, it's a spiritual successor to Zelda Informer, but never fear because ZI isn't going anywhere. Instead, ZI will be returning to bringing you the latest and greatest in Zelda news, editorials, and walkthroughs. Meanwhile, Gamnesia will be it's own gaming hub for discussing games with the rest of the world.

Initially, we will be promoting Gamnesia a lot around Zelda Informer, but let’s not get into those semantics. Instead, let's talk about what's new for you, the fans. For starters, Zelda Informer has a slightly revamped layout. This puts all the emphasis back on Zelda and away from things that, really, many Zelda fans may not care about. In terms of both sites, they have been recoded from the ground up. This means much faster loading times and a better priority, so even if the site lags out the content itself will still be loaded. Oh, there is so much more... so hop inside!


The first convention of its kind, GaymerX was raised on Kickstarter to let queer geeks (and really, anybody, just about anywhere) conglomerate for three days out of the year and play together. I was initially looking for a gay gamer's resource on the net and stumbled across GaymerConnect, the social platform adjunct to the event. With a successful Kickstarter campaign, GaymerX became a reality for the first time in history this year. I experienced community, panels, cosplay, and an overall good time. Photocaps and anecdotes inside!

The newly-revived home video game industry, led by a behemoth electronics firm called Nintendo, has spun a series of competitors in recent years. SEGA launched the 16-bit Genesis, and several toy companies are trying to dip their toes in the water with consoles of their own, including NEC, Bandai, and Philips. But despite their best efforts, Nintendo still makes up approximately 90% of the market share for the video game industry. Amidst the competition, one tech firm has already made big progress on a deal to work with Nintendo on a system that could change the world of gaming as we know it.
