This video game had the horrible idea of turning a giant evil spider from ‘Lord of the Rings’ into an attractive woman

  • Let’s talk about Shadow of War. No, not about the delay. Not about the microtransactions either. We’re also not here to address the egregious sidelining of a black character to a side-story in a series that’s aggressively white, but that’s closer. We’re going to address Shelob.
  • Shelob — who most casual fans of Lord of the Rings
    might remember as a giant spider who captures and almost eats Frodo
    Baggins before Sam Gamgee stabs her and drives her away with Earendil’s
    Star — will appear in the sequel to Shadow of Mordoras a sexy lady.
  • The developers have tried to justify this change, but does it really hold any water? Not really, and here’s why. Read more (8/15/17)

My mother’s mental illness was a tragedy, not a video game narrative device

My father passed away when I was 9 years old, leaving

child that mom seemed to be a “little off” sometimes, but it wasn’t
until shortly after my dad died that she began showing symptoms of
schizophrenia in earnest.

I had to become a grown-up a lot faster than I
should have — and when she had a particularly severe psychotic episode,
it became my responsibility to keep her safe.

So I was excited to see that Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice,
a new game from indie developer Ninja Theory, planned to tell a story
through the eyes of Senua, the protagonist who’s living with psychosis. The team even consulted mental health professionals
to avoid portraying Senua as stereotypically “crazy,” instead trying to
help players understand what it’s really like to live with a mental
illness.

I ended up disappointed. Read more (8/15/17)

Gaming chat service Discord shutters alt-right server in the wake of Charlottesville protests

  • In the wake of white-nationalist-led demonstrations in Charlottesville,
    Virginia, over the weekend, the chat service Discord, billed as a
    “Skype for gamers,” has shut down the server associated with
    AltRight.com.
  • AltRight.com is a prominent news site for the so-called “alt-right,”
    where white nationalist Richard Spencer is listed as one of its editors.
  • The Discord server
    linked to the AltRight website, where the site’s readers could chat
    with each other, violated Discord’s terms of service, which “explicitly
    forbid[s] harassment, threatening messages
    or calls to violence,”
    according to a statement Discord’s chief marketing officer, Eros
    Resmini, emailed to Mic. Read more (8/14/17 5 PM)
