Feature: Be less horrid

Halloween 2018 Special: Some lovely games!

Video games, you may have noticed, are often a little bit horrid. All sorts of naughtiness, and a distinct lack of people just being kind to one another. What are we like?!

Bird Is The Word: Aer Looks Ethereally Brilliant

I really like it when videogames are beautiful. Not just in the "OMG graphics so realistic that I must existentially entertain the notion that the entire universe could just be a hyper-advanced computer simulation" sense, either. I'm talking about games that create a glittering maw of sights and sounds that licks its lips and proceeds to swallow me whole. These overwhelming visions of other worlds…
