HOLY CRAP, this game! I remember it! I had it! I bought it! It was the first game I ever regretted buying!

It was not the worst game ever by any stretch of the imagination, but it was quite possibly the worst deal I ever made. I even remember buying it, it was at a Toys R Us, and I think it was something like $75!

Oh Read more

Just gonna point out everybody calls Gojira “he”, but I’ve never seen Jr’s (or Gadzooky’s) mother. Maybe “he” never had a mate and is hermaphroditic, like some other reptilian/fish breeds? Read more

It’s not a perfect system, particularly when it comes to the difficult subject matter of sexual assault, but the presumption of innocence is a fundamental cornerstone of western democratic law. Read more

This is going to come out not as well written, and I hope my point comes across without offending, so here goes:
I feel like trans people are, right now, at the point of media representation where I was a couple decades ago as a Mexican-American. You see people on-screen who share a commonality with you, but they’re Read more

I too, hate media companies attempting to do the due diligence of verifying information before posting a story that might impact people’s lives.

Not having played this game, I think it’s suffering from being a AAA title from a huge studio and trying to appease a section of gamers that have evolved a bit from the first Uncharted game. Like you, I’m beginning to question why the use of such violence is necessary in a big industry title anymore. If I have to kill Read more

I’m from a small rural town in the the american south. I’m not opposed to being exposed to new ideas or realities in the media I consume but my background has limited my exposure to a great many things. The brief exchange detailed in the article in which Lev declines further conversation with Abby opened my eyes to Read more

I think I’m mostly just disappointed in that this is a story I’ve seen many times over. Red Dead, God of War, Kill Bill, John Wick, the Count of Monte Cristo (book), heck even some of the side quests in Mass Effect 2 had good revenge stories. The list goes on.

So my question was, “How do you tell a revenge story that Read more

Hi, since I’m seeing lots of talk about whether the headline/image are a spoiler, here’s my thinking on that: it’s only a spoiler if you look at Lev being trans as something that’s meant to be a surprise or some kind of dramatic reveal. Years upon years of trans storylines have taught us this (think: The Crying Game, Read more

Same!! I struggle with this desire because I worry it veers too close to me wanting someone’s gender or sexuality to “not matter,” which I don’t think I want. Like, I am trans all the time, and that affects my experience--a short film about me going to the grocery store would be a film about a trans person going to Read more

Hi, this is a great article, even better than your review I think. It did educate me lots. I sincerely appreciate.

As a cis gay man, I can’t fathom the pain of being a trans or the frustration for the existential absence in media. However, I did find Lev one of the most adorable characters in the series (including pt 1) Read more

 I wasn’t prepared for this. I spit water on my monitor after reading the title.

I could not possibly agree more with this take. THAT sounds like GOTY material, not this pretentious misery. Your game sounds bold and brave and beautiful and capable of evoking fear and uncertainty and wonder in ways this one never could.

People seem extremely confused, which baffles me. We can either drastically hurt the economy for a short period of time measured in weeks and minimize death OR we can drastically hurt the economy for an extremely long period of time measured in months if not years and drastically explode the amount of death. Choice is Read more

I don’t think anyone cared until Tina Fey brought it up. But Fey like many white entertainers need to center these convos around themselves. The funny part is she has been tone deaf on social issues for years. Fey had the SNL Weekend update about eating poundcake instead of protesting after Charlottesville. She’s bad Read more
