• Fan fiction in the Classroom: Field Notes from a Fanfic Writer Turned Educator

    I am still not used to the idea of fan fiction being mainstream. It gets lists on Buzzfeed, there are entire retrospectives about fandom in the early 00s; and I hear about students swapping fan fiction as easily as they do their lunches. As a teen, I learned to cover my tracks online so Mom…

  • Have a Happy Valentine’s Day with these 7 sex-positive fanfic titles

    Confession: we learned about sex through fan fiction. Some folks preferred the busty girls and ripped men of Harlequin romances. We, however, found ourselves more at ease in reading about how our fandom OTPs (one true pairings) consummated their feelings. And since we were naughty young girls who clicked through content warnings, we learned a…

    Respawn in Progress: Girls Got Game (GGG) is now Play Without Apology

    JANUARY 22, 2018 -- Online magazine Girls Got Game, also known as GGG at http://girlsgotgame.org, is now in a process of a “respawn” as Play Without Apology (PWOA).

  • Remembering Old Friends: Neverwinter

    The idea of a First Town is a mainstay of roleplaying games. It has its origins in stories the genre draws inspiration from, as with Frodo’s Hobbiton; and it’s there in the stories the genre’s inspired, too, as with Kirito and the rather obtusely named Town of Beginnings. They are sometimes rustic, sometimes cosmopolitan, often…

  • Spark the Rebellion – Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review

    At this point, it's likely that more than half of your friends have already seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And with good reason - it’s a great movie that everyone should watch. If you haven't seen it yet, I am obligated to warn you that this article contains spoilers. That said, if you're the…

    Contemplate the Nature of Emotions with a Vacuum Cleaner in Rumu

    With the rise in popularity of multiplayer games, any announcement for story-rich, single player games often seem like a treat. So when I heard about Rumu (developed by Robot House) during my trip to PAX Australia 2017, I was really excited to get to play it. I grabbed an early release key for review purposes, courtesy of the developers themselves. This…

  • [Throwback Thursday] Looking Back at 10 Years of Bioshock

    In the video gaming zeitgeist, Bioshock really needs no introduction. It's hard to argue nowadays that Ken Levine is one of the greatest gaming auteurs of our time. Yet in the summer of 2007, nobody could have anticipated Irrational Games' return to form since System Shock 2. Despite being released the same year as Halo 3,…

  • A First-Time Con-Goer’s Experience at PAX Australia 2017

    Gaming has been a part of my life since I gained consciousness. One of my earliest memories involved early afternoons of nothing but Bomberman on an SNES I begged my parents for. Despite my love for gaming, I have never involved myself with conventions and events until recently. Upon the invitation of a dear friend (who I met…

Japanese Horror Manga for this Halloween

horror manga

There’s something about Asian horror – the Japanese kind in particular – that makes them superior over their Western counterpart. It goes beyond slash and gore. Japanese horror is more cerebral and disturbs one’s primal instincts. Movies such as Ringu and Dark Water have become cult classics with huge followings. So much so that Hollywood decided to do…
