#GamerGate

So, awkward conversation time. #GamerGate. We’ve been trying to avoid talking about it because there’s a lot of misinformation out there and the issue is incredibly divisive but it’s gotten to the point where I feel like we’d be doing everyone a disservice if we didn’t address it at all.

Dys4ia

Dys4ia

Created by famed game designer and critic, Dys4ia is social commentary in the form of a game. It’s a mix of Warioware-esque games that chronicle the experience of transitioning from male to female. This pixelated autobiography is rendered in retro graphics and bright colors and a great soundtrack.

Resident Evil: Revelations Review

Oh Resident Evil. How far you’ve come. The horror franchise hasn’t been the same since the release of Resident Evil 4. Some would say for the better, while others would say for the worse.

Unrequited Love: EarthBound’s Gay Tony
