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.
OK... that's... surprising. I've already read a couple of those articles, did you link to them already? If not I wonder how I found them.ReplyDelete
Possibly via Twitter, or The Border House? Or they link to me also too, so it's a big ol' circle.ReplyDelete
You linked at least two of them on TwitterReplyDelete
The cat probably wants to sucker-swipe an innocent puppy.ReplyDelete
