Game Like A Girl: What Does It Mean To Be A Gamer?

By | March 16th, 2018|Fiona's Posts, Game Like a Girl, Video Games|

Dungeons & Dragons and Critical Role Twitter blew up yesterday over accusations of gatekeeping and the question "who is actually in the DnD community?" In a long Twitter thread, fans of DnD argued how genuine shows like Critical Role actually are while simultaneously declaring that the only people allowed to have an opinion on DnD [...]

Game Like a Girl: Male Fantasy

By | April 7th, 2017|Fiona's Posts, Game Like a Girl|

While writing last week's Critical Role recap, I looked up the DnD 5e stats for a succubus. It was relevant to the story, and I wanted to have them for my own reference. I don't think it was an official Dungeons & Dragons description, but I found a stat block for the creature that included [...]

Game Like a Girl: Shoot or Miss

Warning: Mild Mass Effect 3 spoilers. Mass Effect 3 has several bonding missions for Shepherd and a crew member. They aren't quite as complicated as the loyalty missions in the first two installments of the franchise. They are simple cut scenes with a few dialogue options. One in particular has stuck with me since I [...]

Game Like a Girl: Kim Kardashian

By | November 19th, 2016|Fiona's Posts, Game Like a Girl|

It's a controversial opinion, but I enjoy keeping up with the Kardashians. I think that the family is fascinating for a number of reasons, but what I find most interesting is how the public interacts with the family. This dynamic has changed recently, due to the attack and robbery in Paris, but over the past [...]

Game Like a Girl: Overwatch

By | June 23rd, 2016|Fiona's Posts, Game Like a Girl, Video Games|

I have been excited about Overwatch since I had first heard of it. Originally, I was attracted the most to Winston. What's not to love about a giant moon gorilla? But, when I first started playing when it was available outside of the beta, I started to love it for even more reasons. Not only [...]

Game Like a Girl: Fury Road

Hello everyone! I made my first Derailed Blog Post about a year ago.  This was also the time that we decided that since we had been seriously discussing creating a company for a little over six months, we would bite the bullet and actually create a website.  A lot has changed in the past year. [...]

The RPGs I Most Want to Play

Here at Derailed, we want our blog posts to be informative and riveting for our readers.  We want to show the world our perception of the gaming industry.  However, this will not be one of those blogs. What do we say to the God of Death? Not today. Rather than giving our lovely readers some [...]

Game Like a Girl (Part 2)

By | May 5th, 2016|Derailed Archive, Fiona's Posts, Game Like a Girl|

I got a bunch of great feedback from my last post of the same name, and I decided to extrapolate on it a bit more in a new post.  Thank you to everyone who contacted me with your thoughts through email, Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit!  I know I won’t get to everything in a reasonable [...]

Game Like a Girl

Much to Nick’s shock, I will not be writing about nail polish or cosplay.  Additionally, much to Tom’s shock, I will not be writing about my cats.  Those are other blog posts for other days. I do, however, want to write about what I want to see in the gaming industry.  I feel that I [...]
