Life is Strange: Before the Storm: Episode 3: Hell is Empty

Words fail me… as is customary with this series. And as always, the statements to follow will not be devoid of spoilers. I always want to ask: what are they saying exactly? What is the message behind the scenarios they are portraying? There’s a deliberate purpose behind almost every action in a work of art […]

The In-game Title Screen

I admit, this series was a little hard for me to appreciate at first. It is a significant departure from the initial storyline which bended reality and had a more superhero feel to the whole thing. In Life is Strange: Before the Storm, you are immersed in real life. It was hard for me to […]

Beautiful cinematography

For those of us greatly affected by the first series, that is to say that the first series had a great effect on us, it has been with equally great anticipation that we have awaited Life is Strange: Before the Storm, Episode 1: Awake. SquareEnix, you are still holding on to that spark that first […]

Life: Thrower of Curveballs

Updated:

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. The scenarios that one experiences in this game […]

Life is Strange - Title

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. I really didn’t think they had it in them any more, that FF7 was just a fluke […]

American History: Anita Hill

Politics, Social Issues
Updated:

I have absolutely no idea where I was when this scandal broke. I did not even know it existed until about five or so years ago, when Anita Hill was making yet another comeback after Clarence Thomas’s wife, Virginia, called Ms. Hill out of the blue and asked her to apologize, subsequently apologizing herself for […]

Ender’s Game Movie Response

Literature, Social Issues
Updated:

Even in the first few minutes, there is a lot that I’m very pleased with. The book was indeed rather vague on the origin of the Formics, more derisively known as Buggers (one of a handful of instances in the book where homosexuality is tangentially derided). The majority of the story is essentially preparation for […]

A little on The Blind Assassin

Literature, Social Issues
Updated:

From Part X on, I could not shake a great sense of disappointment that this book was not going in the direction I thought it would. It hardly needs to go in any particular direction. I don’t believe that this book, or any, is supposed to be written in any specific way. One feature that […]
