  1. Review: Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is Witchy Good Courtroom Drama

    Two guys, their assistants, and lots of magic.

    I want to hug whoever came up with the amazing idea to put these two crazy kids together. I’m talking about Professor Layton, the top-hatted Londoner who loves solving puzzles, and ace attorney Phoenix Wright. They’re like peanut butter and jelly—a delicious man sandwich that packs so much flavor you won’t want to go back to having one without the other. In a totally platonic way, of course.

    So, you’re finally taking the big step. You’ve seen the occasional words or titles in anime or games, and now you want to dive into the “real” stuff. You want to learn Japanese.

  3. An Illustrated Guide to Issues of Harassment, Representation, And Media Criticism

    Trolls get banned, JSYK.

    I wish this didn’t have to be said again. I know many people have spoken about this, written about this, and yet the issue keeps coming back again and again.

  4. Lingerie for Cosplay: What to Wear to Comic-Con

    A handy resource for all your cosplaying needs.

    Finding undergarments that work for your cosplay is a unique challenge in and of itself. Most lingerie isn’t made for costuming purposes, and when you’re wearing a jumpsuit made of spandex all day, little details like seaming and fabric composition matter even more. Below is a brief-ish list of some brand and pieces I think are a particular good fit.

  5. 7 Important Life Lessons Learned from Labyrinth

    That owl does NOT have your Hogwarts letter.

    It is kind of (really, totally) possible that I have a bit of a Labyrinth problem. But that’s all beside the point. Somewhere along the way, I began to realize that maybe the reasons I love Labyrinth so much have more to do with the wisdom hidden within than they do with my desire to name my next pet Sir Didymus. Without further revelation of the depths of my personal nerd-dom, I present some important life lessons learned from Labyrinth.

  6. How to Make DIY Doctor Who Wall Art!

    You always have more wallspace when your home is bigger on the inside.

    If I could sing you the TARDIS’ sweet, sweet melody, I’d do it right now. There’s no better way I can think of to celebrate the return of Doctor Who (aside from maniacally jumping up and down and screaming, of course). But as we all mentally recover from Doctor 12's first full episode, we may as well put all of that Time Lord-loving energy to good use!

  7. Get Prepped for Sexualization and Fridging: It’s Time for Another Sin City Movie

    I'm the God-dame-d Batman.

    As Sin City: A Dame to Kill For seeks to bring more of Miller’s mix of bruising fellas and half-naked women holding machine guns to the screen, it’s the perfect time for us—to use the vernacular of Miller’s milieu—dames to take a look back at his most misogynistic moments in color and ink to prepare ourselves for another go-round.

  8. Games for Girls? How About Games for Everyone?

    Gender-neutral games are too hard to animate.

    The portrayal and treatment of women in and around video games is a sore subject for a lot of us. It’s been talked about to death, and yet it still doesn’t seem like we’re making much progress. It’s a very polarizing but uniformly upsetting issue that lingers on in this otherwise great community like cat pee on an oriental rug.

    So very.

    On August 4th, Heathers the Musical played its last performance off-Broadway at New World Stages in New York City.
