Breaking News: Star Wars Uprising to be shut down! 

Breaking news! @KabamRPG is shutting down #StarWarsUprising as of 11/17/16 per a message my hubby got in game! Here is the message he received!

So who played this game? Are you upset about it being shut down as my hubby is?  Will you join the Marvel game instead?

Star Wars This is Madness 2015

Starwars.com has announced the return of Star Wars This is Madness Tournament



The voting is set to begin on March 12th, but there are already comments on Twitter about the brackets, the characters and the match ups. Especially, around the lack of female characters.

Below are just some of the ones that I had to share:

Johnamarie Macias (@BlueJaigEyes)
I refuse to participate in the #ThisIsMadness Star Wars tournament. Three women characters in the lineup? And a few play-ins. No thanks.


Jamie D (@JamieD1138)
@BlueJaigEyes What are play-ins? Crazy to see Bib Fortuna but no Ahsoka.

Peter Di Cicco (@PeterDiCicco)
@BlueJaigEyes Wait… Bib Fortuna, Pre Visla and Gregor are in the bracket but Ahsoka, Sabine and Asajj are not??


Rebel Transmission (@Rebels_TK421)
How come Zeb is in the ‘Scoundels’ category of @starwars #ThisIsMadness? He’s a Rebel surely.
audrey horne (@nicolecieux)
@BlueJaigEyes @fangirlcantina @tveitlight25 @realamandaward it’s 3 women and 23 men. y i k e s.

Several of us spoke with Andi Gutierrez (@DeeGoots on Twittter) from StarWars.com on this topic.  She was concerned about the following Tweet.

Johnamarie Macias (@BlueJaigEyes)
@geekgirldiva @fangirlcantina The #ThisIsMadness Star Wars Character Tournament. A lot of women characters are ignored every year.


Andi Gutierrez (@DeeGoots)
@BlueJaigEyes @geekgirldiva @fangirlcantina Not ignored. I have to say I’m a little insulted to see that you think we actively exclude them.


I personally appreciated that Andi took the time to send us these Twitter responses to our questions on this subject.  Below is what she had to say about the process for selecting the brackets, the characters and the match ups:


Andi Gutierrez (@DeeGoots)
@PattyBones2 @BlueJaigEyes @geekgirldiva @fangirlcantina It’s not my process to divulge. Many team members were involved in many discussions


Andi Gutierrez (@DeeGoots)
@PattyBones2 @BlueJaigEyes @geekgirldiva @fangirlcantina A lot more thought goes into it than can be boiled down to a tweet.


To help get some clarification, I asked if the Story Group had any involvement and if there were anyone there representing the female point of view.


Andi Gutierrez (@DeeGoots)
@PattyBones2 @BlueJaigEyes @geekgirldiva @fangirlcantina HA! No. We are not in the Story Group and they have bigger fish to fry.

Andi Gutierrez (@DeeGoots)
@PattyBones2 @BlueJaigEyes @geekgirldiva @fangirlcantina The entire .com team. Men & women.

As a female Star Wars fan I understand the disappointment of which characters appeared on the Tournament under which categories.  However, I am reassured that the group deciding included the female point of view. Maybe the ‘Play-Ins’ that will be revealed on March 12 will include some of the awesome female characters like Sabine, Asajj and Ahsoka.



Game Review: Doctor Who Legacy for iOS

I decided to share the review I posted today at the Apple App Store for my favorite game Doctor Who: Legacy for iOS devices.

IMG_1750

I have been playing this free game for over a year and it is the only game that lets me play without requiring me to pay anything unless I really want to! However, I like many others support this great game by paying a small amount to unlock the Fan Area. This purchase was well worth it because it give you access to levels that help level up characters so you can get to the next level. Also, you can se where your money is going because these guys are always adding new levels, characters and freebies. If you are a Doctor Who fan this game is a must! Cannot wait to see what comes next!

You can find out more by visiting the developers website or by visiting the Apple App Store.

And for those who may be wondering below is a screenshot of one of my favorite teams:
