Contained in Our Moments: Ignorance and Love in Nier: Automata and The Witcher 3
#Featured, #Video Games

PLEASE NOTE: This piece discusses the ending of Nier: Automata in extreme detail.     I finally finished The Witcher 3, that beast of a game. I have plenty of gripes with it. It egregiously sensationalizes violence against women, repeatedly putting the bodies of female […]
