What Persona 5 teaches us about injustice (and how it applies to today’s reality)

So, I need to preface this post with two things. Firstly, I am so sorry for not uploading the update on the weekend. I have been very sick, but I am going to upload it on Tuesday instead! Secondly, I might come across as a little angry in this post. That’s because I am. NotContinue reading “What Persona 5 teaches us about injustice (and how it applies to today’s reality)”

An insight into the question ‘do video games cause violence?’

As I have an assignment due in tomorrow, I almost did not post this week. However, there will be no post on Wednesday as I have a 24-hour exam that day, so I felt like you guys deserved at least one post. Plus, you know, I’m all for putting off doing actual work in favourContinue reading “An insight into the question ‘do video games cause violence?’”

What does Red Dead Redemption 2 teach us about love?

This one is an odd one because I haven’t exactly finished Red Dead Redemption 2 (I’ll get round to it, don’t worry!) but I have seen it been played through twice. Before I actually played it – back when I thought I would not like it – I just started to read about the characters.Continue reading “What does Red Dead Redemption 2 teach us about love?”

Persona 5 Royal- Week 8 Play Update

What a week! I’ve had a few depressive episodes so have been playing through a lot of Persona 5 Royal. We are unfortunately at the point in the game where I can no longer screenshot, so what you see from now on is either taken on my phone, from before the cut-off date or inContinue reading “Persona 5 Royal- Week 8 Play Update”

Why Kamoshida and Shido are not connected- Persona 5

Okay, so I have lasted a few weeks without a Persona 5 post so now I’m throwing in the towel and just doing one. I think it is worth it. This post comes from several conversations I have had with my partner since finishing my first playthrough of the original Persona 5 game. As farContinue reading “Why Kamoshida and Shido are not connected- Persona 5”

Persona 5 Royal- Week 6 & 7 Play Update

So, I missed last week’s Royal update because I was not doing too good mentally, so this week is super duper special. It will cover both Sae’s palace and Shido’s! I am pretty proud of my progress, considering the amount of university work I have had to do. Let’s get to it! First of all,Continue reading “Persona 5 Royal- Week 6 & 7 Play Update”

How I learnt how to play Yu-Gi-Oh

So, this is going to be a mix of video games and card games, with a touch of anime shenanigans. This week, we are going to dive into the weird and magical world of Yu-Gi-Oh, the trading card game that you can play virtually on several consoles. So, if you have a Nintendo Switch, youContinue reading “How I learnt how to play Yu-Gi-Oh”

Should historical figures and events be used in video games?

So, for my last post, I covered a similar type of thing (but with mental health). This post, however, actually came into my mind months ago as I had a lecture about it. Since then, I have been on several rants (to the people in my class and my partner) about the topic, and IContinue reading “Should historical figures and events be used in video games?”

Should mental illness be used in video games?

I am not going to pretend I have a degree in psychology in this post (although my partner is doing a degree in psychology, so I do like to think I know a decent amount of stuff); this is going to be a sincere post about a very serious topic. I have several mental illnesses,Continue reading “Should mental illness be used in video games?”
