Since we last checked in with the other tiny Android console, GameStick, its Kickstarter campaign has nearly reached the end. With just under three days left to go, more than five times the original $100,000 goal has been raised, and the final stretch goal -- adding color options -- seems to be within reach.

The big update for GameStick is that a new design for the controller has been shared, as shown above. Most notably, there are now extended grips, the housing for the HDMI stick has been moved to the back of the controller, and the stick has an expandable 32GB MicroSD card slot.

Additionally, there's a docking station for the GameStick, which predictably charges the controller itself, as well as expanding functionality with support for more storage (up to 104GB, in total) and peripherals like keyboards and mice. It's neat to see people get behind these projects, though I'll be playing it safe for the time being.

Review: Pneuma: Breath of Life

Pneuma: Breath of Life is, through and through, a creationist tale. There's no theory of evolution, carbon dating, or Darwinism to cause debate. It's one god and the world that he brought into existence mere seconds earlier. As it turns out, being the only inhabitant of a world is a dull affair.more

Y2K is a surrealist fantasy told through the lens of a Murakami-loving hipster

Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume. This was jarring enough to give Alex reason to look completely shaken and offended, and as the jaunty soundtrack suggested, should have felt super quirky and weird. It didn't.more
