It’s Time For Games To Own Their Politics

Art is always going to express a certain point of view because ultimately, whatever form it comes in, art is made by human beings. It’s a responsibility that can sometimes feel weird in big-budget games that don’t double down on the questions they present and treat real life-inspired issues like theme park attractions.

A Tear Is Growing In Fortnite’s Space-Time Continuum

Last weekend, a rocket blasted off in Fortnite Battle Royale and cracked the sky. The cracks have grown larger since then, leaving players wondering what happens if the sky completely shatters.
