Carolyn’s Fave Five: Games in 2017
It’s no secret that I put a premium on compassion and humanity in games and really, in all art, but if ever I felt a particular need for art that said something about hope, friendship, partnership, love, and our connections with each other, it was this past year. Thankfully, it was a banner year for games […]

Facing the Darkness Within: The Importance of Acting in Observer and Hellblade
Acting matters, but some acting matters more than others. The 2013 film Locke, for instance, takes place entirely in a single car, being driven by a single man, played by Tom Hardy.
