God of War Ragnarok's one-take camera is technically impressive, but it ultimately hurts the storytelling instead of enhancing it. escapistmagazine.com/god-of-war-rag…
I was mixed on the "Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special." It was charming, fun and nice to see a Marvel project using actual locations inhabited by human beings. But the special really feels - for better and worse - like it was a first draft. escapistmagazine.com/the-guardians-…

This week, Netflix is releasing Rian Johnson's #GlassOnion in theatres. I wrote about "Knives Out" & "Glass Onion" at @EscapistMag. In particular, how the movies reject the archetype of the dispassionate detective in favour of a more humanist outlook. escapistmagazine.com/the-righteous-…

Andor Season 2 Reveals First Story Details escapistmagazine.com/andor-season-2…
Clarification from Schofield about the season pass. twitter.com/GlenSchofield/… I still think these types of modes and animations shouldn't be paywalled for a single player game. Just do a paid expansion, having a "Season Pass" is just muddying the intent here.

I wrote a bit about The Callisto Protocol locking some of its death animations (and extra game modes) behind a Season Pass paywall... in a scripted linear single player survival horror game. I think it's utterly gross for a linear game to do this. escapistmagazine.com/the-callisto-p…

People are loving the new Cold Take series from @TheOtherFrost. We updated the visuals a bit for the second episode to give it a nice chill jazzy noir vibe. It really works with the voice behind it all! Give the second episode a look! youtu.be/LfzFkU8Y-10

Lots of games have a shadowy company with a secret lab gone amok, but it's rare that you get to experience it as just a Joe Schmo working there. Resident Evil should take notes. Security Booth Is the Resident Evil Game I Didn’t Know I Needed: escapistmagazine.com/security-booth…

Donald Glover’s #Atlanta finished this month. I discussed it at @EscapistMag. It was one of television’s great liminal spaces, a postmodern millennial sitcom with characters in constant transition, never afforded the security of a sitcom status quo. escapistmagazine.com/atlanta-limina…

I reviewed Netflix's new show "1899" at @EscapistMag. I'm decidedly mixed on it. I admire its headiness and its commitment, but it also feels a little too academic and abstracted for its own good. escapistmagazine.com/1899-netflix-p…
