It’s supposed to be the slow season now, but last week was crazy. We got some really good stories on the site, thank goodness. Here are my top five...
- Sex Abuse Survivor Finds Comfort In Video Games - Patrick’s sympathetic, moving piece about a gamer coping with awful memories.
- All These Things Actually Happen In Adam Sandler’s Pixels - Chris S.’s (mostly) deadpan retelling of a bad video game movie.
- Surprise PewDiePie Video Gives Hope To A Struggling Designer - Patrick’s feel-good story about a pretty cool thing that happened to a young game developer.
- Go Play Journey Again - Kirk’s persuasive case about playing a much-lauded game again.
- Nintendo’s Shutting Down Wii U TVii Next Month - Mike with a more creative way to report some otherwise-standard video game news.
*New Feature - Headline of the week: Today Is “Hand Job Day” In Japan
