This is the biggest article I have ever written. It's fitting that it's about a character I've been babbling about since I was five. And I finally got to send my editor a folder titled "Pictures of Spider-Man." JJJ would be proud. https://t.co/5Oh1AK2mzz

This is a fantastic casting decision and a GIGANTIC WIN for video game adaptations. (Especially bc of the concept of the show, which is about WESKER'S DAUGHTERS!) But no, tell me why one of the world's most dynamic actors is a WORSE pick than "White Guy In Oakley EyeJackets." https://t.co/u5t6AqysN9

As much as I want to watch #InTheHeightsMovie tonight, I realized that watching "Paciencia Y Fe" 3 weeks after losing my immigrant Grandma would basically make me emotionally implode, so I'm gonna chill on that for a while. <3

this one goes out to everyone who dove into BERSERK after Miura's passing, woke up to a solar eclipse this morning, and had nowhere to put their feelings of panic and dread <3

AAA Publishers: no, games don't have any inherent meaning, and CERTAINLY no POLITICAL meaning haha y would u even SAY that geez Day of the Devs: Our music game is, of course, about addiction. This cooking game is about failure and imperfection. This one's just called "POLITICS."

I just wish every developer making a retro metroidvania platformer would hire a dedicated writer. I am begging you. I love the vibes, I love the dedication to retro art styles, but if I finish ONE MORE GAME with a narrative that just kind of...ends, I will lose it.

Two types of people on my TL right now: 1. People who understand Sonic Unleashed has a GOAT-level OST 2. Cowards

Imagine sitting Giancarlo Esposito down for an interview, and then Vince Gilligan says "BREAKING BAD HAS NO OPINIONS ON HEALTH CARE OR THE DRUG TRADE." It's the only fanbase I'm aware of that wants their art to become "content." Textureless, meaningless, anonymous.

So, games publishers go out of their way to hire known actors, to digitally capture their faces and performances, and have them talk at LENGTH about their character's motivations. And then they immediately say how the art they're in is NOT POLITICAL AND MEANS NOTHING.

When one of the best people I haven't met boosts one of the best books I've read in years, written by one of the best people I HAVE met? It's a sign, @peterbcounter. A beautiful, horrifying sign. https://t.co/PDUZuraelF

In uni, I learned that many self-identified Smart People only wanted to do 2 things: Treat (my) life like a thought experiment, and be joylessly pedantic to the point where nothing meant anything. I hated that shit SO. MUCH. Anyway that's like 80% of online interaction now.

the last entire fucking year in my DMs and texts has been a chain of me and my brown, asian, and black friends gently checking up on each other after hate crimes, atrocities, and personal losses

If you want another fun example of boxing matches being corrupt spectacles with thrown finishes, you're going to love "The Last 40 Years Of Boxing." Everyone looks down on Pro Wrestling, but EVERY SPORT BECOMES PRO WRESTLING because that's what we ACTUALLY WANT.
