I have been at a loss for words for the past few months. Since completing the series, my mind has been in a state of stasis—frozen in uncertainty after being bombarded by an amalgam of ideas that I have encountered many times before in many other stories, histories, and re-tellings, but simply not in this […]
Wow… it took a moment to collect myself. This is one extraordinary adventure and well-deserving of all its accolades. Max Caufield is a modern day Holden Caulfield, which I’m sure is exactly what they were going for, what with that “Catcher in the Rye”-looking poster back there.

Brace yourselves… I have paragraphs to unload. PARAGRAPHS. There may be spoilers within, so reader beware… First of all, I am not kidding: Simply playing this game will make the patriarchy your bitch. SquareEnix, you have out-fucking-done yourself.

Recently, Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, wrote a post on his blog called Pegs and Holes where he laments about how what men want is very opposed to what women want and that the natural inclinations of men are more frequently vilified than those of women. His essay ends by outlining an apocalyptic scenario where […]
