Happy Wednesday! What games are you playing lately? I started the Spider-Man DLC, The Heist. Black Cat’s flirtatious banter and Peter Parker’s awkward reactions are fun to watch.

I have finally finished Shadow of the Colossus, and boy howdy, was that ever a video game, eh? The last colossus drew some never-before-heard curses out of my mouth. It’s an excellent game, but I could write an entire essay on how awful that last colossus felt to fight and how yes, I do get the point, but as we discussed in English class, mimesis isn’t actually the best method to get a point across.
