CFP: The Legacy of Radiohead's 'The Bends' 20 Years On [Deadlines: 29 Jan / 12 Feb]

Multimedia
I Am Blue
Differentiating yourself from other gamers on the basis of a few primary colors may indicate some powerful symbolic and identificatory impulses. [28.Jan.15]
Resident Evil HD Remaster
Oddly enough, a remake of the original game, Resident Evil HD Remaster, actually feels like the next big evolutionary leap for the series. [27.Jan.15]
Game of Thrones, Episode 1: Iron From Ice
In Telltale's version of Game of Thrones, you play the parts of people who themselves are playing parts. Each one is not playing the game of thrones, they are pieces in the games of others. [26.Jan.15]
'Far Cry 4' Is an Adventure Game, Not a Shooter
Far Cry 4 looks and plays like a shooter, but it doesn't feel like a shooter. It is really about my quest for collectibles and the chaos that erupts along the way. [23.Jan.15]
Every Blade of Grass: The Pros and Cons of Photorealism in Video Games
The dream of creating photorealistic video games seems odd to me when considering the medium itself, especially in contrast to other artistic mediums. [22.Jan.15]

Things are funnier when they go terribly wrong. [12.Jan.15]
Very simply put, Miss Take is an exceptionally executed game, advancing a kind of minimalist, arcade-style form of stealth that never wears out its welcome. [15.Dec.14]
Unrest is The Wire, but set in an ancient, mythical India. [09.Dec.14]
This War of Mine is a great game about survival, hope, loss, despair, companionship... but oddly enough not about war. [05.Dec.14]
I kept expecting a villain to pop up or hints of a conspiracy or some outside force that connected all the various vignettes of the story together. In A Golden Wake, there are a bunch of short term goals, but ultimately this is a character-driven narrative. [01.Dec.14]

Themenastics
My Muppet Show is the Orpheus myth. You just have to swap out Orpheus for me; Eurydice for a frog; a lyre for a cartoon banjo; and Hades for the iTunes store. [15.Jan.15]

When knowledge falls outside of that which is found on the Internet, it falls outside of modern understanding. Thus, games like these, which fall outside of the norm, become intensely compelling. [01.Dec.14]
