Hello internets, I'm working my way back to civilization.
But while I was gone, some friends have been churning out some stellar video game essays.
Over at Two Whole Cakes, Lesley's written a pair of articles:
- Shepard Ain't White: Playing with Race and Gender in Mass Effect
- Probe Away! Mining for Queerness in Mass Effect 1 & 2
And my old college buddy at Retconning My Brain published her piece on the Asari: Bluer than your Matriarch's Orion Slave Girls!
So while I'm unpacking and trying to figure out what the cat wants, go read those.
