Happy Sunday, friends! This was one hell of a week. Emm served up a double shot of zero fucks given with her comic about why she left online gaming, then defended everyone’s right to game (with additional commentary from our community!). Heather O finished up her review series with an in-depth look at BioShock Infinite. Our writers shared their top most emotional in-game moments, and we all emptied our Kleenex boxes. DocMartens joins us after a hiatus to share her story about gaming after her father passed away and how that shaped her healing process. Finally, Michelle B covered the much-anticipated Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night and analyzed the women in Castlevania games.
Don’t forget! We’re always looking to welcome new voices to our little community. Now that you’ve brewed your coffee and settled in, give our roundup of Twitter gaming cuties a read. ✌

A female protagonist is controversial. Everyone has to have an opinion, even if they have no opinion.

More women creators and more diverse women's stories. This isn't a zero sum game. More for us =/= less for you. https://t.co/eEHteoLeZw

When – oh when! – do I finally get to play a grim white dude in a big budget open world game?! pic.twitter.com/pkNbCvgqRj

I don't just want representation for myself. I want to escape to worlds that look like the one I know – diverse, and richer for it.
