Another awesome one, Strummer...uh, Matt. Whatever.
Hyper Light Drifter dazzles with tight gameplay but ultimately feels inconsequential. In this review, I show how one of its influences, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, uses plot structure to overcome this issue.
Gaming’s culture war hasn’t ended. It’s still roiling, with new fights, new targets, new depths of ugliness, but also many of the same tactics.
Crazy like a FOX.....or is that XOF?
This was FUCKING AMAZING. I’m a sucky works with my hands moron, I couldn’t make all of this fit together like you did. SO sick of the “Hurr Durrr War On terror” I just couldn’t make people understand who mad all of it happen.

I wrote about Nature VS Nurture as told by the MGS 1 and 2 and that sparked a lot of great conversations. However, your piece is so great because…
Is Metal Gear Solid V incomplete or is Hideo Kojima just crazy? I’ll assume the latter and dance at the edge of sanity deciphering the Phantom Pain’s narrative via the Cold War and its residual effects on modern history. Full spoilers for the Metal Gear series.
Fantastic advice all-round, I think... and Gold 4 is certainly high enough that I’m not going to discredit your advice. :P

An examination of Her Story and how its gameplay mechanic and narrative parody the media frenzy around criminal court cases. Full spoilers for Her Story and Sunset Blvd.
