Leigh Alexander talks mature games and mature 'gamers'


8:30 AM on 10.12.2013



Almost 2 weeks ago on Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) we welcomed former Destructoid editor, Podtoid regular, and current essayist, satirist, and speaker Leigh Alexander to the program. She even teamed up with Jonathan Mann for a song about GTA V. Pretty adorable. 

We talked with Leigh about how writing about games has changed over the years, ways that the new GTA could do better at "punching upwards", if videogames are becoming more inclusive, what it's been like to grow up along with gaming as a medium, and a lot more.

Thanks again to Leigh for appearing on the show. You're welcome back any time, as a guest or as guest host. Tune in tomorrow at 1pm PST/4pm EST when we welcome Ryan Vandendyck (Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Citizens of Earth) to the program. It's going to be spooktacular.

Video: Lindsay Lohan is suing GTA V creators over use of her likeness

Lindsay Lohan has filed a law suit against Rockstar, the creators of Grand Theft Auto V. The suit claims Lohan's likeness is used in the game, without her permission, based on the character of Tracey Jonas. It's a pretty far-fetched claim, and sure not to go far. But it is worth a good laugh.more
