Brick Gamers 51 - Game Expo

You're a gamer right? Why else are you reading BrickGamers if you're not? Oh, right - you're a LEGO fan! Well if you're also a gamer, chances are you've been to a Gaming Expo or Show to catch the latest showcase of upcoming games, make it an outing for fellow gamers to catchup on good times, and in today's Japan-crazy Anime / Manga world, catch some good CosPlay (Costume Dressing) people too! Plus there's chance to get great bargains on games or even gaming hardware to upgrade your game experience! However, the highlight would probably be girls...since most gamers are guys...and we don't mean girl gamers as our previous post...

Urm, no, we're not giving out passes to any gaming shows anytime soon - anyone wishes to sponsor them? :)

Brick Gamers 50 - Girl Gamers

Wow, it's been 50 BrickGamers comics since we started in GameAxis, the South-East Asia regional print gaming magazine. Hard to imagine we've come so far so we've still a far way more to go! Well done Jack! 

For the 50th issue, we decided to do something we're seeing a trend in the gaming scene - female gamers! 

That's right, girls are beginning to enter the scene while it has mainly been a boy's game all these while. Thanks to games like Sims, and Web-based Flash games like FarmVille and other Facebook social games, more girls are beginning to game and some are beginning to take up professional games like First Person Shooters (FPS), and of course, many girls are known to play Computer Role Playing Games (CRPG) like Baldur's Gate - not so much of Fallout, since it's more of a guy's game. It remains to be seen if girls enter the Real-Time Strategy (RTS) arena though - have you seen StarCraft 2 girl gamers? We've seen WarHammer 40,000 table-top girl gamers, so you never know! What about other gaming genres? Have you seen any girls?

Erm, sorry, no contest for this topic - what, you think we're giving out a date with a gaming model? Right...

As reported in Kotaku.
Well, that is one way to play a game before it is realised :D

Brick Gamers 49 - StarCraft 2 Campaign

Hell, It's about Time! Famous words by the Terran Marine which StarCraft 2 fans will recognise and in the case of BrickGamers, it's about time for our flagship comic which we somehow forgot over the past month! 

Whoops! Our bad! Must be all the SC2 gaming sessions! Speaking of which, we did a take on the SC2 Campaigns to showcase the different types of SC2 gamers out there - do you see any of yourself in this comic? Feel free to share your comments so we can know if there are other types in the SC2 universe or what's the most types out there! We got a pop quiz for you - what type do you think Jack is? Any guesses? :)

Best entry wins a copy of SC2. Now how did that get in there? Let's see if we can do it - first, start guessing!
