  4. How League of Legends Uses Colors To Affect Players’ Behavior

    Everything is science if you look deep enough.

    Even if you've never launched your own summoner into battle for another team's nexus, you've probably heard about Riot Games' constant efforts to make League of Legends a more civil and welcoming space for its players, using such tools as rewards for good behavior, temporary bans for bad behavior, and more. A whole lot more. Like, stuff you could write a psychology dissertation on, more.

  5. During Public Speech Gamergate Asked Leigh Alexander About “Pushing Values” in Video Games

    It's easy to start a conflict online; it's another story in person. Many who would be emboldened behind a keyboard would never dare say the same things to a person's face. Mostly from fear of getting punched, I'd wager, but also from sheer awkwardness. Personally, I've always wondered when a commenter would jump out from behind the computer into real life; and, well, it seems that's just happened to Leigh Alexander.

  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. How Adventure Classic Grim Fandango Holds Up 16 Years Later

    All that critical acclaim is intimidating.

    Re-releasing games tends to have little value outside of convenience. Sure, I could have hunted down Kingdom Hearts II and Birth by Sleep and paid for them individually. But that could have been more expensive than opting for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix in a single package. I wouldn’t be able to play them on a more recent system, and I wouldn’t own them on one disc. Grim Fandango is a big exception.

  10. The Trailer For Telltale Game of Thrones Episode 2 is Nerve-Racking

    *flies away on dragon*

    You may recall I was pretty impressed (and surprised) by Episode 1 of 6: Iron From Ice from Telltale. Well, the trailer for Episode 2 leads me to believe I'm in for more excruciating fun. I'm already wincing at the decisions I'll have to make.
