Gamers Outreach Charity Stream This Saturday
Aug 22nd
Join RCM this Saturday, August 27, as we support our RivalFriends Lenard and StrwbryshrtKate on their 24 hour stream to raise money for the Gamer's Outreach Foundation. RCM will be hosting their stream starting at 10 AM ET and throughout the day until Chaos Will Ensue starts at 5 PM. We will also host during the 7 PM to 9 PM slot in between Chaos and the Saturday edition of RCM Roughnecks.
Gamer's Outreach is a 501(c)(3) charity which raises money to bring technology and gaming equipment to hospitals to bring joy to children during their hospitals stays. The funds they raise go toward developing portable gaming carts (GO Karts) that aid in providing kids with an outlet for relief, socialization, and a sense of normalcy during treatment within the hospital. Each GO Kart is equipped with a gaming monitor, gaming console, and games. The carts provide a safe, flexible, and efficient way to ensure children have access to entertainment and coping mechanisms during long-term hospitalization. So far, GO Karts have been built for eighteen children's hospitals across the country and are used by more than 84,000 kids per year. Saturday's charity stream is presented Chive Gaming and is slated to run until Sunday morning.
More information on Gamer's Outreach can be found at: https://gamersoutreach.org/

Negative Headlines Give Undeserved Bias
Aug 24th
This summer, the RCM Writing department started its first Summer Writing program with four college interns from around the US. For August, they were asked to write about whether they feel the media has a more positive or a more negative slant regarding gaming culture. Ray's essay is the fourth installment in this four-part series.
When it comes to gaming culture, media tends to have a more negative than positive view. Whenever media gives a positive view to the world about gaming, it then turns right around and presents a negative approach to gaming. This immediate contradiction gives a heavier weight to the negative side and overshadows the positives.
Of course, gaming culture is seen as fun, and interactive. Media keeps gamers updated on the latest news about what is happening in the gaming world. While media does a good job of pushing people to play games and become gamers, it contradicts itself by then shifting focus to the negative. Whenever there is a news broadcast or article that is about video games, there is always a negative connotation about what it is doing to young kids. For example, games such as the Grand Theft Auto series and Call of Duty series show kids violent images such as murder, weaponry, and sexual images, which media deems as harmful to children. Also, media depicts video games as distractions that keep children in a fantasy world away from reality, which prevents a child from learning and growing up which keeps them in a childlike state.
