  5. PBS Game/Show Tackles the Racist Pitfalls That Can Go Along With NPCs of Color in Video Games

    Yeah, I have always been a little side-eye about the Gerudo.

    Jamin Warren brings up a lot of good points about how the player agency which lies at the heart of most games often results in dehumanized NPCs, which become doubly problematic when PCs are majority white and/if NPCs are predominantly brown. He also tackles the common scifi/fantasy trope of using inter-species conflict as a metaphor for inter-racial conflict, one that I've been mulling over myself for a while now.

  6. We Mashed Up Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four Trailer With Interstellar’s Audio, and It’s Uncomfortably Similar

    I think I've seen this movie before...

    The Fantastic Four reboot trailer reminded us of a lot of things, but none more strongly than the trailers for Interstellar. So, we gave it a run through the Nolan-ifier for you, and it's so perfect you can barely tell the difference. Be sure to watch all the way to through. Enjoy.

  7. Very First Animation Tests Of Mass Effect Were Of FemShep, Says Lead Animator

    HELL yeah!

    One of the best things about many Bioware games is that you can select the gender of the character you play. Despite that, the marketing for Mass Effect tended to focus almost exclusively on the male avatars for a super long time, until criticism of this practice finally led to a trailer for FemShep in 2011. Which is odd, because if Lead ME cinematic animator Jonathan Cooper is to be believed, FemShep technically came first.

  13. Late to the Game: A First-Timer Imposes Order On the Chaos of Mass Effect 1

    Anticipation: Being able to romance Garrus in the next game.

    Welcome to new(ish) series Late to the Game, where Sarah Ingram of The Geekmates reviews games that she’s shamefully left unplayed up to this point. It’s like newbie recaps, but not. First was Dragon Age: Origins, and now, by popular demand, it's Mass Effect 1.

    With bonus and completely random Mass Effect content!

    Here's a frightful new behind-the-scenes segment on Penny Dreadful, taken from the first season Blu-Ray/DVD set! It includes lots of interviews with your faves - and a few newer faces, too (Helen McCrory!). Also, at the 1:00 minute mark, the background music for this video is absolutely without question "Leaving Earth" from the Mass Effect 3 soundtrack. I can't handle the combination of Mass Effect and Penny Dreadful. I need to lie down.

    In my book, there are few cozier ways to spend a Sunday morning than perusing the internet in search of good art. Today's find is the work of artist Jenn So, who sells fannish prints and other goodies at her Society6 shop. I'm especially partial to the Lara Croft one. I also recommend looking very, very closely at the sheep in the last pic featured here.
