The Desert Fathers Play Pokemon Go

Two monks left their cell and appeared before Abba Anthony, who was praying. "Abba," said one of the monks, "My brother is in error, saying that Squirtle is the best starter when Charmander is clearly superior." The other replied, "Nay, it is my brother who errs, for Squirtle has the best evolution."

Lost Odyssey and the Pain of Love

It was a grey and gloomy day, and I suppose now it couldn't have been otherwise. I'd brought my daughter to the park. This is our daily rite, meant to initiate her into the mysteries of play and society.

The Great Equalizer: Death in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

In the course of my life I have died, by my best calculation, ninety jillion times. My many demises run the gamut of options: crushed, drowned, run over, smothered, incinerated, exploded, imploded, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. I am a connoisseur of ends; I've sampled them all. My palette is discerning.

To My Daughter: Be Like Rey | Geekdom House

Ah, my dear Madeleine, asleep in your fuzzy tiger costume and strapped to my chest. You are a scant six weeks old, and your life consists entirely of sleeping, eating, bouncing in your parents' arms, and the occasional bout of thunderous flatulence.

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture: The Final Reveal | Gamechurch.com

By C.T. Casberg The end of the world's a funny thing. Everybody's got opinions on it, but nobody's been there yet, making what happens all a bit guesswork. Some think Earth will be pulverized by an asteroid. Some think it'll be robots that do us in, or that we'll meet our end via catastrophic weather patterns caused by global warming.

On Choosing Our Stories

For whatever reason, God made human beings inside of time. We are creatures of linearity, of cause and effect. We experience events in single direction. There is no going backwards, not even in memory; for when we remember things, we are creating a new story in our minds, one that becomes hazier and more indefinite the further removed we are from the events in question.

New Games Criticism, Subjectivity, and You

If you haven't read Paul Kilduff-Taylor's expansive essay on the art and science of writing about video games, fix yourself. It's an incredible piece, and although I disagreed with it here and there I felt thoroughly refreshed by its humility and frankness.

Apocrypha Now! The Wisdom of Solomon in the Age of Ultron

Ancient texts are not irrelevant to today's debates for the plain fact that they are ancient. Rather, ancient texts prove that today's debates recapitulate eternal questions of the human condition. Last week I had the pleasure of reading The Wisdom of Solomon and viewing Avengers: Age of Ultron, both for the first time.
