Praxis Effect: Episode 03 - Dames, Names and Shooting Games

This month's topics reflect on how seriously we take our gaming, as Neil Taylor wants to know why there aren't more female heroes to choose from, David Merrett asks whether combat is simply runtime padding these days, and Sharon Shaw questions whether even the term "game" really applies any more.

Talk about the show on Twitter with the many hosts using the hashtag #PraxisEffect. Contact us via email at praxiseffect@gmail.com and come to the Gonzo Planet forums where there is a Praxis Effect section. We want to hear you guys use these discussions as jumping off points for debate.
