Gamer Culture

Gamers have a unique and diverse culture within our society.  We tend to do things a little differently, and that's why we have this corner Cinelinx set aside specifically for them.  This section will feature articles dealing specifically with that culture and the integration of video games into every day life.

Hands-On With Golem Gates; An RTS With Potential

Golem Gates is a card-based real-time strategy game (RTS) that has recently entered early access on Steam.
