My 14 year old son and I have been talking a lot this past week about the Anita Sarkeesian videos
(we watched a few together) and have been having some really great discussions. We've always talked about what games he can or cannot buy and the reasons for it. I'm really more concerned with the misogyny than the violence, although the violence doesn't thrill me. Now however, my son is concerned that I won't let him buy *any* games anymore because the misogyny is so pervasive. Is he right? [more inside]

My husband and I used to LOVE playing Buzz Quiz World on PS3 against random folks online. This was a few years ago before we had kids. Recently, we tried to resurrect the fun, only to find no one else playing online. Upon doing a little research, we see that they're shutting down the Buzz Quiz World servers completely!
My question is this: Does anyone have an online multiplayer "couch-to-couch" quiz or trivia game they love? Does anyone even know of a single one that exists anymore? I just read through a comprehensive list of all games expected to come out on the PS4, and... NOTHING.
Am I just an old, old lady? Buzz Quiz World was so much fun...

I recently picked up a cheap used Playstation 3. I'm entirely new to console gaming but have played PC games for many years. What older, must-not-miss games are there for the system? I've heard about Uncharted 3 and Red Dead Redemption. Others?

Since the Xbox 360 doesn't have a browser I am unable to connect to Xbox Live on a public internet connection because the 360 cannot give me access to the user agreement (if anyone knows a way around that, I'd like to know). Does anyone know if the PS3 has a browser capable of going on a public wifi and agreeing to the user agreement? I ask this because I am considering purchasing one for the library I work at. This will allow me to download updates for our games.

Can an XBox 360 and/or Playstation 3 be made to play archived/ripped DVDs that preserve the menu structure? Is there a guide for doing that somewhere? [more inside]

I'm looking for some PC game recommendations. I guess I'll settle for X Box 360 and PS3 recommendations as well. I know a variation on this question has been asked many times before, but I have a fairly specific requirements. [more inside]

Best DLC for PS3? Short and sweet. What's a good ~$10 download for the PS3? (I've got Braid and Noby Noby Boy). I'm thinking of maybe Pixel Junk Monsters, or Flower. Is there anything else I should look at? Basically the only genres I'm not into are Racing and Fighting, but I'll make exceptions for excellence.

My girlfriend is in South America for the next few months. She is living in a house that is owned by her uncle who works for the Catholic Church. He has a wonderful HDTV and a PS3 sitting in his house but no games. Now he isn't there that often but her 14 year old cousin lives next door. What PS3 games would be appropriate for my girlfriend and her 14 year old female cousin that wouldn't create a potentially awkward scene if her Catholic Priest uncle found them? [more inside]
