Disabled Gamers Being Shunned

I recently had a few exchanges over Twitter with X-Play suggesting they look into how disabled gamers are being shunned by the industry. The person running the Twitter account suggested I e-mail X-Play. I did and thought I'd share my thoughts with them with all of you:

Dear X-Play,

I recently sent a tweet to your twitter account suggesting that you guys do an in depth look at how gaming is starting to shun disabled gamers.

I'm disabled, I have Spinal Muscular Atrophy. It requires I use a wheelchair to get around and limits my mobility. As a result sports weren't an option as a kid but gaming was. I've been gaming since the NES (even have a working original Game Boy) and have owned almost every system over the years but I recent years I find myself having less gaming options.

Yes my limitations have increased as I get older and the disability limitations increase along with age but the gaming community is changing against the disabled gamer as technology is increasing when it should be helping.

Games used to allow you to customize your controller setup making it easier for disabled gamers to put key buttons within easier reach yet nowadays the only games allowing customization of controls are fighters (like SSF4, UMvC3, etc). But gamers like Call of Duty, Assasin's Creed and others like them say "here's the controls, don't like it then don't play it". My disability has resulted in me not being able to use the left triggers on controls but can work the right yet in games I mentioned I can't alter it because programmers feel its not needed and or wanted. Does the aim and fire buttons. HAVE to be left trigger? Hell, forget disabled, if your right handed wouldn't you prefer the right trigger be key buttons instead of the "useless" buttons like look around or other options?

Plus there's the biggest offender of disabled gamer discrimination in Microsoft. Kinect, you be the controller. Um, hi I'm disabled with limited movement how can I be the controller for something I can't physically do for real? Does Kinect recognize a wheelchair? Crutches? Has Microsoft even made disabled Avatars? No they haven't. I own a 360 and looked, no disabled Avatars.

There are tons if disabled gamers worldwide that are slowly being pushed out of the one thing in this world they could do just as well as healthy gamers. Hell I kicked major ass in a mini Soul Caliber tourney on the GameCube in my home a few years back, and I was drunk. I was top 10 in my Blockbuster Store when they did their gaming competition in the 90s, yet I spend more time looking for games I can play then I do playing them because the industry is forgetting disabled gamers like myself by not putting in customized controls or taking a second to think if what they've made can appeal to ALL gamers.

I hope this might intrigue you to look into it and maybe even put some of the game companies on the hot seat on how they take the disabled community into consideration for their games.

I'm also including my number in case you have questions for me or would like more input from me.

Thanks for your time and keep up the great work on X-Play.

Turbo


Hopefully this will intrigue X-Play or G4TV enough to get gaming companies to remember there are ALL types of gamers out there.

How Time Has Flown By

If you would have told me ten years ago I would witness a world shattering event I would have asked you what drugs you were on. But what started as just another day on campus turned into a day that many still cannot believe happened. Yet many of us remember it as if it were yesterday.

I was still in Brooklyn College and had gone into the disabilities office to drop off paperwork to request transportation for that weekend. Someone mumbled something about a plane hitting The World Trade Center and my reaction as a TV major was to ask which station reported it. When I was told it was Howard Stern I simply shrugged it off as another of his stunts. Little did I know how wrong I was.

Joe, a friend at the time, and I began making our way to the Whitehead building to relax a but before class and when we got to the building the security guard informed us another plane bad hit. Joe and I looked at each other with the same expression, this was bigger than we thought. We rushed to the elevator and up to the third floor where the TV department was and they already had TVs in the hallway showing the tragedies unfolding in front of us. We couldn't believe what we were seeing that we rushed across the street to SUBO and up to the top floor to see from the roof what was unfolding.

The doors were locked so we shared a window with a professor that was there with his camera taking still photos. He told us we were witnessing history, and it was still just beginning. We rushed back across the street to Whitehead to witness what none of us expected to see. The first tower began to fall and all the group of us in the hall could do was stand there stunned. No horror movie screams or shrieks of terror, just silence. Then the second tower fell and we all knew that campus was the wrong place to be.

Having a pager and cell phone was worthless. As we stepped into the Quad where the entire campus was struggling to get through to others with random signals my instincts reminded me to get to a landline. I then rushed back to the disability office and used a landline phone and finally got my mother on the phone. My father, who worked at the MTA Hudson Pier depot, was alright watching everything from the job and that mom was on her way to get me and then we'd pick up my brother from High School.

I met mom at the municipal parking lot near campus, now a Target, and was more afraid at the point than when the attack happened because the streets were quiet. No people, no buses, random cars and nothing but black sky where I would normally look to see the skyline of the city.

What was normally a 30-minute ride from my brothers high school became half that. Once home I through a tape in my VCR and pressed record and scrounged for other tapes knowing this had to be recorded. I sat and watched the coverage all day and way into the night. Wondering what the future will be.

Ten years later we've had fights over what should happen at the site, terror threats come and go, and the rebuilding has begun with the memorial in place. I've miss placed my hours of tapes from that day and perhaps it's for a reason. Unlike the rest of the country, I don't need the media hype to remind me once a year of what happened. I'm a New Yorker, I LIVED IT! I didn't not lose a loved one but know people who did, I watched buildings I was in as a child collapse like toys, and I drive by the site regularly and remember everytime I go past that area of what happened.

The day will always be remembered and those lost as well. Let's all agree that over the next ten years we stop referring to the site as Ground Zero as it's now a memorial and business buildings, let's stop the month long media hyping and let's ALL remember how we all came together as a country to help those who needed us the most on that date and still need us today when this date returns to remind them of how their lives and the world changed. Remember all year long, not just when it's good for ratings or politics.

A LEGACY COMES TO AN END: JAG PANZER DISBANDS

(25 July 2011 - Colorado Springs, CO) After more than three decades of delivering heavy metal to the masses, Jag Panzer have decided to call it quits.

"We are proud of every album we released and the support we've received from the heavy metal community," states guitarist and founder Mark Briody. " We've played so many places around the world and enjoyed every minute of it but the time has come where we just cannot move forward as a band."

Guitarist Christian Lasegue left the band last month to pursue his degree full time.  "Christian did an amazing job on The Scourge of the Light and it was a pleasure working with him," continues Briody. "We wished Christian well but kept this quiet until we found a replacement."

Drummer Rikard Stjernquist says,"Several  guitar players applied for the job.  It was a pleasant surprise to see so many young guitarists with advanced chops.  One player, 19 year old Jake Dreyer, submitted videos of him nailing solos from both Chris Broderick and Christian Lasegue.  We were ready to welcome Jake into the band but unfortunately that will not happen. There is no doubt in any of our minds that Jake will go on to be a household name in his own right."

Bassist John Tetley adds a final statement:" In closing, we’d like to send out a huge heartfelt THANK YOU to metal fans throughout the world.  You all rule!"

Dave Khan, vocalist/guitarist for Scythia commented on the album.
"We are very excited for our upcoming release. This album really defines Scythia's sound through dynamic orchestration, cinematic soundscapes and the use of narration. These elements combine to bring the listener deep into a world of battle and betrayal."

2. Spirit of the Quest

TANK Ready For Action As 'WAR MACHINE' Tour Approaches!

Tank have issued a band statement ahead of their forthcoming 'War Machine' Tour which kicks off in Middlesbrough in just two weeks and takes in ten different countries.


The statement reads as follows;


"We are now just two weeks away from the start of the 'War Machine' Tour and the adrenalin is pumping in the War Office as we prepare to lay siege to Europe.


The band are fired up and ready to go and about to deliver a live set that will blow you all away.

Chris Dale "I can't wait to get to grips with the 'War Machine' album tracks live. This will be our first chance to show the world the album in concert."


And we're going to document the tour on this site in real time so you can follow us around Europe as 'War Machine' makes its way through the continent. Stand by for the launch of this site's Tour Section next week.


This live set will include many classic Tank anthems as well as several tracks from our acclaimed 'War Machine' album (Metal Mind Productions).


Mark Cross "Looking forward to seeing you all on tour! It’s another great challenge being part of a great band like Tank!"


After our two shows in Middlesbrough and Newcastle, England on 5th and 6th August, we travel to Poland to play the Metal Hammer festival with Judas Priest at the Spodek.


Then it's Scandinavia for appearances in Norway and Sweden...

Mick Tucker "Tank is coming to get Europe and we're going to kick ass like you wouldn't believe. We just want to get out there and do it now!"


Trurock Open Air in Germany beckons and we're expecting a mass Tank Army to show for that one, then we go west for dates in Portugal and Spain.


Then it's over to Holland and Belgium which are bound to be high octane shows and then it's The Baltic Sea for Rock At Sea...


Doogie White "The best thing about writing and recording an album is when you get to take it out on the road and get reaction to the live shows. That time is now upon us my friends. Come and be part of the mayhem."


We can't to see the Tank Infantry on the road. It's been a long time but Tank are back on the road now and that is where we are going to stay.


We're hoping to meet as many of you as we can at our gigs as it was demand from the Tank fans that made this tour happen. We salute you.


Cliff Evans "I can't wait to get back out on the road, see some old friends, make some new ones and unleash this great new line-up that's gonna kick some serious Metal ass. The War Machine is coming!"

2011 MDA Telethon To Be Jerry's Last

The following was announced today from MDA:

One of the world's greatest humanitarians of all time, Jerry Lewis has announced he's retiring as host of the annual Muscular Dystrophy Association Labor Day Telethon.  "As a labor of love, I've hosted the annual Telethon since 1966, and I'll be making my final appearance on the show this year by performing my signature song, 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.  I'll continue to serve MDA as its National Chairman – as I've done since the early 1950's.  I'll never desert MDA and my kids."

Having banked some 900 hours of live television time encouraging America to help fuel worldwide research seeking treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases, while simultaneously enabling MDA to provide unparalleled medical and health care services through its national network of some 200 hospital-affiliated clinics, Lewis today confirmed,  "It's time for an all new Telethon era. This year's six hour prime-time Telethon on September 4 will be spectacular, and I'm thrilled to be part of it.  We're so close to treatments that it's absolutely vital for everyone to tune in and make a generous donation.  America has always found a way each year to give me that just one dollar more to help my kids."

MDA President & CEO Gerald C. Weinberg said, "As MDA continues the growth Jerry Lewis has done so much to inspire, all of us who've been privileged to work beside him, and the hundreds of thousands throughout the world affected by the myriad of muscle diseases MDA battles, will acknowledge in our hearts forever the unrivaled role Jerry has played in our lives and the lives of all Americans.  We're deeply honored that Jerry Lewis will continue as MDA's National Chairman and we're profoundly grateful for everything he has done and is doing for the Association."
As an individual who has been part of the MDA Telethon, both on and off camera, I knew this day would come yet tried to forget it's inevitability.  I want to thank Jerry for everything he's done for the Telethon and the show will not be the same.

“I SLEPT WITH JOEY RAMONE – A PUNK ROCK FAMILY MEMOIR” RELEASED IN PAPERBACK; NEW ADDED EPILOGUE CONTAINS DETAILED UPDATED EVENTS!


When Mickey Leigh – musician and brother of punk rock star Joey Ramone – wrote “I Slept With Joey Ramone – A Punk Rock Family Memoir,” he thought he’d told it all: what it was like to grow up as Joey’s younger brother, how the formation of the Ramones band came to be, the behind the scenes highs and lows of the music business in the tumultuous and exciting punk rock era.  But that is not the end of the story!  The release of the paperback edition features a previously unpublished epilogue, written by Leigh, which bares the shocking drama that ensued following his brother’s death in 2001.

Even though Joey did not live to see it, passing away just weeks before turning 50, Leigh and his mother Charlotte Lesher were determined to keep their promise to celebrate his birthday in a way Joey himself would have done.  Literally within days, an all-star all-out rock and roll super concert and party was conceived and carried out…but not without its own drama.  You will read about why the other band members (Johnny, Marky and CJ Ramone) decided not to perform at the event and the death threats which resulted from the craziness.  Leigh has unveiled the reasons behind the delay in releasing the posthumous Joey Ramone debut solo album, and the continued harrowing negotiations to acquire the tapes for the forthcoming second CD, which Joey’s mother never got to hear.  The deaths of two other founding members of the Ramones – Johnny from cancer and Dee Dee from a drug overdose – also shook the rock world and caused tsunami-like repercussions within Ramones Productions Inc., the company that handles all Ramones-related activities.  When Joey’s and Mickey’s mother Charlotte died suddenly, it left Mickey as Joey’s heir and Linda Cummings as Johnny’s heir as joint heads of RPI – not an easy transition which is ongoing even today.  All this and more is revealed in detail in the new Epilogue included only in the just-released paperback version.

Acclaim for “I SLEPT WITH JOEY RAMONE” has been high and wide.  The New York Post called it “compelling” and the LA Times called it “an authoritative history.”  Rolling Stone Magazine gave the book a 4-star review, and declared it “A powerful story of Punk Rock inspiration” and Publisher’s Weekly proclaimed it “revelatory reading” and a “compelling portrait.”  And Booklist hailed it as “an essential addition to the Ramones files” while Library Journal raves that Leigh “wrote this enlightening book with love and respect…fans will cherish this touching portrait.”  Even fellow rock stars were lavish in their praise: U2’s Bono admitted “I wouldn’t exist as a singer without Joey Ramone.  Blame him” and radio personality and Bruce Springsteen’s long time guitarist, friend and sidekick Steven Van Zandt acclaimed “Mickey’s cool new book is not only important, it’s very, very moving.”
