How CLOP Is Both a Sadist and An Optimist

Iíve heard of QWOP before. I used watch 8th graders huddle at library computers, striving for high scores before school teachers caught them. I also watched PAX press struggle with GIRP among their own laughs and the teases of co-workers....

 
 
 
 

The Neglected Aesthetics of Fighting Games

I sat on a sofa, watching casuals with friends and eating my sandwich at a Montreal fighting game venue, when I noticed someone walk towards our console with an early copy of Persona 4: Arena. Blazblue fans were ecstatic. Newcomers were ask...

Happy Sunday! There won't be an analysis this week. I've been working on some important ideas and concepts, twisting and sculpting them, and trying pack them into rock hard theory. If these ideas work out the way I want them to, I may be a...

 
 
 

Analysis: The End of Us

About Zolani13one of us since 9:17 PM on 04.05.2012

One of the things I love to do is to interpret various media. This blog is where I interpret various games I like, and try to draw a conclusion from them. What is a game telling us? How is it telling it to us? I try to answer these questions.

I've just started using Dtoid blogs. I have more posts at fengxiblog.wordpress.com for those curious for more.

And lastly, I love discussion on this kind of stuff. If any of my interpretations spark some ideas from you, comment or tweet me @Fengxii! (Two 'i's)

Have a nice day :)
