  3. The Only Open-World Game I Want is No Man’s Sky

    You can't take the No Man's Sky from me.

    The idea of open-world games is alluring: We want to explore a world so real and immersive that it can offer us the fullest escape possible from our own. But creatively speaking, as soon as you remove the invisible boundaries that separate the linear from non-linear, we cease to discover a story that's compelling. But maybe going as far away as space is the answer. No Man’s Sky, one of E3’s biggest marvels this year, could be the one truly open-world game I can get behind.

  4. 10 Anime to Watch and Watch Out For This Summer

    And they're all Sailor Moon. (Just kidding.)

  6. Empathy and Megan Wallaby: Exploring One of Welcome to Night Vale’s Greatest Strengths

    Hello, listeners!

    Welcome to Night Vale draws from the weirder elements of The Twilight Zone, the sinister elements of Lovecraft, and the dark humor of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, but there are also oddly progressive aspects to its eponymous fictional town that we don’t always get to see in the real world. Like the townspeople's attitude toward the Apache Tracker, and the relationship between Cecil and Carlos. And then there's Megan Wallaby.

    +2 CHA, -2 STR

    I have a soft spot for studies about multiplayer games. Partly, this is because games are my stomping ground, and I like to nitpick the things I love.
