Vianca Natividad is the League of Legends social content producer for esports organization Team Liquid. In this piece, she discusses the harm created by “model minority” stereotypes and the need to actively combat racism and hate against AAPI people. As a child, I was the only Asian in my class all through fifth grade. I was constantly bullied because of my eyes, mocked for doing work above my grade level (of course she’s smart, she’s Asian), and often treated as an afterthought. I learned how to “fit in” by being…

Talking Point: Are There Too Many Harvest Moon-Likes On The Market?

This is my new game, “FrankenFarm” Ova Magica. Monster Harvest. Coral Island. Castaway Paradise. Kitaria Fables. Littlewood. No, those aren’t the potential titles for my upcoming heavy metal album – those are just a few of the recently-announced, released, or funded farming games I can think of, and that’s far from all of them. They all have something in common: they’re all two-word titles (er, except Littlewood), and they all take their inspiration from Harvest Moon. More precisely, many of them take inspiration from Stardew Valley, which, in turn, takes…

Paradise Lost Review – IGN

Video games have had us infiltrating Nazi bases for decades now, but Paradise Lost takes a decidedly more tempered approach than the all-guns blazing action of Wolfenstein or Sniper Elite. Its underground bunker setting is almost completely desolate from the outset of the story, so the closest you’ll ever come to having a rifle is when you’re having a rifle through filing cabinets for clues to determine exactly what fate befell its inhabitants. Yet while I explored the often disturbing depths of Paradise Lost’s Swastika-adorned subterranea with a sustained sense…
