The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for moving house, except you're not really moving house, you're just moving out of one. Don't ask. Read the best writing about videogames from the past week. Stephen "thecatamites" Gillmurphy blogged about the market, whatever that is. Parts of his post cut at the language people wield against market forces that don't serve their interests, when the language itself stems from dynamics that…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for more housemate hunting. They keep escaping. Somebody stop them. Here's the best writing about videogames from the past week. For his latest Vice column, Cameron Kunzelman raved about betrayal in Project Winter. It's a hidden roles game where a player or two is trying to murder their fellow survivors, and back when it came out I told everyone at RPS we had…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for finally visiting old school friends who have the audacity to now live five hours away. I'll be having far too wholesome a time to fit in any reading the best writing about videogames from the past week. For Vice, Dante Douglas dove into the Mordhau mess. Mordhau has a disproportionate number of white supremacist players (it sometimes seems as if every other…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for hanging out in a field playing board games. Or for reading the best writing about videogames - although not much grabbed me on that front this week. Here, have something about radically political board games instead. Did you know the suffragettes made a board game about feminism and police violence? Regardless, Renee Shelby's piece for ROMchip is worth checking out. The game…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for lazing about on your patio, reading sci-fi nonsense. Reading the best writing about videogames from the past week is also acceptable. Mat Westhorpe's piece for the Guardian is beautiful. It's about his nephew, and the Elite Dangerous players and developers that came together to support him during the final days of the 15-year-old's terminal illness. I don't know what else to say.

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for meeting potential new housemates and trying not to squirm out of your shoes. These meet ups are like job interviews for personalities. It's disgusting. Here's the best writing about videogames from the past week. Let's kick off with an astounding article from Laura Hudson in the Guardian, who spoke to female developers around the world making games that convey the devastating impact…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for this! I'm going to be running around the National Maritime Museum solving puzzles and pretending to be a pirate. I guess you're stuck reading the best writing about videogames from the past week. For Vice, Patrick Klepek dug into a weird chance-based Super Mario Maker level that thousands of people are interested in, for reasons that are beyond both me and the…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for being lazy. Here's the best writing about videogames from the past week. (Although this week is unusually light on vidgams. You're welcome/sorry.) For Vice (which Waypoint has now regrettably been folded back into, by the way), Elizabeth Ballou delved into the fascinating and sometimes creepy world of Ingress, an augmented reality game about spies and logistics. I love how people get so…

Sundays are for finally going on one of the nice walks you told yourself you'd do when you moved to Brighton. The South Downs are lovely. I will be there, rather than reading the best writing about videogames from the past week (and beyond). I'm sure that's lovely too. Here's an interesting bag of thoughts from Michael Heron over at Meeples Like Us. They concern…

Sundays are for doing things that are important and exciting and meaningful, but I will just be eating more crisps. And reading the best writing about videogames from the past week. Actually, screw videogames, because Alice O shared something way better in our work chat earlier this week. Can you inscribe human nostalgia onto foreign DNA? So asks Regine in her fascinating piece about DNA…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for getting home from a swim in the sea to discover young Matt is on holiday and nobody has nipped down the shops to get the papers in. Ah. Well. All the big'uns are gone so let's see what I can rustle up from the magazine rack, a bit shorter and less gamesier than usual. A ROM of prototype Atari arcade game Akka…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for going on wholesome walks with family you haven't seen in months. Not for reading the best writing about videogames. If you do that you are bad. On Waypoint, Patrick Klepek profiled one of UKIP's candidates for the European Parliment. That candidate is Carl Benjamin, one of Gamergate's most prominent figures. Klepek highlights the depths of Benjamin's hatefulness, then stresses that we shouldn't…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are, for the first time in a long time, for doing absolutely nothing. Crisps, TV and Apelegs until bedtime, baby. When I'm not reading the best writing about videogames from the past week. Rezzed meant I skipped the Papers last week, but I don't want to skip past Jason Schreier's in-depth Kotaku report into Anthem's fraught development. I haven't reached the end yet, but…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for recuperating after seeing the Peatbog Fairies, my favourite Celtic electro-folk-rock-jazz band. Or for reading the best writing about videogames from the past week. Or maybe the best writing about Dril, the famed semi-anonymous Twitter scamp who deserves a Nobel Prize. That's according to Tom Whyman, whose piece for the New York Times had me cackling where actual Dril tweets earn a bemused…

Sundays are for living it large in San Francisco, on your one free day before GDC. Alice Bee tells me there are some good sea lions, but if you don't have any sea lions to see, that's OK. You can still read some of the best writing about videogames from the past week. On Waypoint, Patrick Klepek spoke to KO_OP, a games company where everyone…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for actually setting up those shelves I lied about a few weeks ago. And for reading the best writing about videogames from the past week. On Kotaku, Gita Jackson wrote about writing about videogames and race. It's an astonishingly calm, considerate reply to the commenters who crop up on any article that discuses anything to do with race. I've read so many words…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for crossing your fingers in hope of weather that's as lovely as last weekend's (our children are really going to hate us -ed.). Or not caring, because your main plan is to sit indoors watching Olivia Colman do Oscar-worthy things. Or because you're busy reading the best writing about videogames from the past week. On PC Gamer, I thoroughly enjoyed Joe Donnelly's tale…

Sundays are for pancakes. And still too much Apelegs. And the best writing about videogames from the past week. On his blog, Robert Yang drew comparisons between the depiction of skin in AAA games and the work of painter Lucian Freud. His comments are as layered as the pigments he describes, shining a somewhat murky spotlight on the mass of flesh behind games that eclipse…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for playing too much Apex Legends. Have some people written about it in the best articles about video games from the past week? Or before that, because I read some good stuff while I was on holiday? Maybe. Maybe. For Waypoint, Yussef Cole laid out the numerous problems with Fortnite's appropriation of dances from black artists. It's a context I wasn't entirely aware…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for being on aeroplanes. Possibly reading the best writing about videogames from the past week. For Eurogamer, Cian Maher spoke to the Oblivion modders who collaborated with Terry Pratchett. It's a heartwarming piece, not least because it provides a new perspective on a great man whose signature used to sit on my mantelpiece.
