I'll help =)

I love pink consoles myself lol but games like the Imagine series look a load of rubbish to me. I like some sterotypical girly things but I'm also into Resident Evil XD So you get a mix with me.
I don't own a next-gen console yet but I work in GAME so I'm aware of how they work and what's out and what sells ect ect.

Most of my cosplays are from games also ^-^

@ Giant Lenin = No it doesn't have to be facebook based, just write ideas that can help me on here, also you wouldn't mind if I used photos of you in your costumes for the magazine?

No I'm not going to contain PC games because I only have a month to do this project in, if I had much longer I probably would

To everyone who is happy enough to have there cosplay photos in the magazine could you email me on:



It's just because I need to ask for you permission and then print it out so when my work gets examinated they know I didn't just pinch the photo off the internet.

Hey. I'd love to help out in anyway possible. I've been gaming since I was about 5, so for about 11 years now.
I'm into all sorts of games, some of the girly ones {but not really} and then like Final fantasy, and some first person shooter games {as a result of my brothers}.
=D


05 Nov 2009 - 23:1321928
Okay, I've filled it out for you.
Hope you find it useful ^_^

Hi i know your pain i'm doing a BA Hons degree in Media Culture and Society at my uni too and we've had to do something on those lines for one of the lessons, so i would love to help you out

i noticed how quite a few of my games i like didn't seem quite "girly" as i love near enough all the fighting games, now and again i play some of the Ice-Hockey games with my brother and my mate (who is on here and is a girl) got me playing World Of Warcraft.

One of my other fave games (besides the Jak and Dax series) are a few of the Final Fantasy series (like: X, Crisis Core and Dissidia) and Hopefully for the October 2010 London Expo I'll have Zack from Crisi Core done and in May Zidane.

okay, so I thought I'd come in here and help with this

1) What is your full name? Chey Krista Howard

2) How old are you? 19

3) In what country do you live? Australia

4) Do you think a girls gaming magazine is a good idea? Of course I do, the reason being as I used to collect a few different kinds of magazines from girly magazines to gaming magazine, but they all stereotypicalized gamers being guys and girls being all "look at me I'm so pretty...I has pink and omg crush on new hottie actor of the year" so having a magazine for the non stereo type girl gamer is definitely needed...cause Girls play games too

5) Do you think the war/army genre is a good theme for the very first issue of this magazine?
not being to into these games...mainly because I fail at them, I personally would of started with the tekken type games and then start to get into the more in depth games.

6) What articles would you like to see in this magazine?
reviews, gaming therories (such as how us girls think the game could have been better)

7) What is your favourite games console?
playstation one

8) What games consoles do you own?
playstation 1,2,3 & psp
xbox 360
SNES
NES
DSlite, DSI
gameboy, advanced, sp, and pokemon pikachu limited edition xD

9) What is your favourite genre of game?
RPG's

10) Do you think a major game’s company should publish a gamer girl’s magazine?
I believe they should, although there are both many positives and negative to them producing it

11) Do you think the name of the magazine “Controlled” is suitable for the magazine?
I didn't have to think about that, I actually laughed at the pun... I think it is very much a good idea cause gamers would find the joke in the name

12) How many years have you been gaming?
around 13-14

13) How much do you spend on gaming magazines a year?
I stopped buying them...so roughly $15 (Aus) max

14) How much do you spend on games a year?
$400 (aus)

15) Are you subscribed to any gaming magazines?
no sorry

16) Do you pay to play games online?
no I don't I used to for WoW but I uninstalled it from my computer

I hope that helps a bit

2) How old are you? 16

3) In what country do you live? (If England please state region/county) England, UK. Merseyside.

4) Do you think a girls gaming magazine is a good idea? (Please state why) I think it is a great idea, because you never get a sort of, inbetween magazines, they are either really girly, or really boyish. So finding a magazine that maybe covers them both for the 'middle people' is a great idea.

5) Do you think the war/army genre is a good theme for the very first issue of this magazine? Maybe not so much army/war, but more fighting. I know, most games contain fighting, but I mean in the sense of the game is based purely off fighting, so yes army/war, but also tekken and the sorts.

6) What articles would you like to see in this magazine? Reviews on the newest games, but also games from the past, from like the first gaming consoles.

7) What is your favourite games console? Playstation {2/3}

8) What games consoles do you own? (this can include Nintendo DS) Playstation 2, Playstation 3, DS, Gameboy advanced {lol} and the Wii.

10) Do you think a major game’s company should publish a gamer girl’s magazine? Definatley.

11) Do you think the name of the magazine “Controlled” is suitable for the magazine? Lol. It's epic! Totally.

12) How many years have you been gaming? 11 I think.

13) How much do you spend on gaming magazines a year? (A rough estimate) I never really buy them, because they don't appeal to me.

14) How much do you spend on games a year? (A rough estimate) £60. {Only because I never have money to buy more though. Tehe}

15) Are you subscribed to any gaming magazines? If so how much do you pay, how long have subscribed to that magazine for and the name of it? Nope.

16) Do you pay to play games online? If so how much do you pay yearly? Nope.


07 Nov 2009 - 12:0822053

Thank you to you three for filling in the questionnaire! ^__^

and also offering to help, at the moment I'm collecting photos I can use for my magazine, so thats pictures for articles and stuff.

I think I am not going for the full army theme but celebrating some of the greatest war game titles, so for example writing about CoD since it's a hit with every games console.

BUT I am definatly not making it girly, the photos of costumes are going to be anything from any games and don't worry everyone who has emailed me asking to be in and gave me permission will be in ^__^

I only can do stuff to the magazine at school infront of the teacher so I can prove that the work I am doing is actually mine. Which sucks could of started to now aha, so I think on Monday I will start and then depending how far I get in lessons I will upload my work ^_^ Since it's all computer based now... (thank God XD)

The questionnaire were sent out to all of you for a very important reason, to see if I am actually meeting my target audiences need. Like containing what they want in and if they think the magazine idea, and from the results I have gotten I can proudly say most of you do. So I think my teacher will be very happy for me to start on Monday based on them results.

Just a big thank you to everyone again ^___^!

I may have an article where you can send questions in, so when I get up to that I'll tell you all so you can ask me some questions I can put in and answer !


Thank you again!

Oh wow, is there still time for me to help out? Cos this sounds awesome i've got a couple of video game cosplays (princess peach and a final fantasy 3 job class) and i do a games design course at uni so i'd love to help if i could ...

Wow this sounds like a cool idea ^_~ I'm a huge gamer (and a girl lol) and i'm also currently studying games design at uni (one of 4 girls in a class of 50) I'm also making it my own mission to make games for girls that ren't some cooking.showjumping/pet the puppy kind of thing ^_^

Oh and i have gaming cosplays too lol. Drop me a PM if you want anything from me ^_~


09 Nov 2009 - 14:2022242
If you still need people to help you with this, I would happily do so. This is a subject I'm interested in as well, as girl gamers are very misrepresented, if they are even represented at all.

Thank you ^__^ I will probably post up on here if I need help with anything, probably the game reviews since I'm not a big CoD fan myself XD!


I showed my teacher what happened over a weekend... 45 questionnaires ahaha, she was very impressed and she's happy for me to start the magazine and research.

Only problem is like I mentioned before we have to prove we do work at school, there was no computer rooms for us to work on this lesson. So next lesson will be Thursday XD, so that sorta sucks, I think I'm just going to start even if were not supposed to I really don't have the time.

Thank you to everyone again, I think I will probably start with the fan/costume page tonight ;D

So I will post/upload photo when I get somewhere with it.
