Snowman from Oryx and Crake. Double-points because he's an awful human-being to start with.
Interesting stuff, though I can't read this and not immediately think of Kirk Hamilton's article on the hypothetical(?) intersection between the novel and video-game monetization.
Nice! Reminds me of Floria Sigismondi's music videos for Marilyn Manson in the 90's.

Sam Fisher: Remember the Mafia? Well, imagine that instead of a bunch of thick-necked goons with stilettos, the city was watched over by a group of…
What about Rudy Rucker's Ware Tetralogy?
Triclopsinators is a much better name than just "dwarves" or "elves" or whatever it is they're called.
When I first read the title of this article I first assumed that Klickstein was saying, however inarticulately, that the bar of quality on Nickelodeon's content shifted after the nineties and now the channel has such a "diverse" range of shows of sporadic levels of quality that the channel really doesn't have an…
Superhero movie night and pepperoni pizza with my 4 year-old godson. Iron Man + Amazing Spider-Man. Pretty Awesome.
2014-2015 are going to be the awkward transitional years. Just because the hardware's been out since October doesn't mean we have the games to play on it. Eventually, developers are going to "pull the plug" on "last-gen" hardware and migrate to the new systems. But it takes time.
I take offense to your statement, as I think it's a sweeping generalization intentionally created to prompt an extreme reaction. But I won't begrudge you for your own tastes in media.
Geoff Keighley | The man with the inside scoop, Keighley frequently tweets or teases big-time exclusives on Twitter.
My mistake, I meant "serendipitously." Auto-correct strikes again.
Irrational Games is not "shutting down."
The studio is being parsed down to 15 members, including Levine, and the Bioshock franchise is being handed over to the publisher 2K to decide which studio will helm it while Levine and the leaned-down Irrational work on a new title specifically focused on digital distribution.…
Just finished the DLC. The kiss moment was very heart-warming and it made the inevitability of Riley's fate hurt all the more. What I'm curious about is, why does everyone assume that she's gay? She kissed Riley, she had feelings for Riley. Is this a sweeping indication that she is only attracted to women? I don't…
I get that you don't like the series. That's fine. But taking active satisfaction in its commercial failure? That just comes off as abnormally dickish.
I get the feeling that Trevor Phillips and Murdoc Niccals would make great friends.
I don't think that Keyser Soze and John Doe are the same person. Tony Stark's not alone in this theory, I've rocked it in the back of my head occasionally myself. I think that what we have here isn't a case of intentional intertextuality, but the evidence of a very talented character actor who just so happen to be…
Maybe you wanted to play Milo, back when that was still kind-of a thing that was sort-of in production.
But let's ponder this for a bit. Say something makes a game about being a kid. How long would the game be, and when would it start and stop? We've already had games where we see our protagonist being born and…
