Sin, the Book of Genesis, and Playing God: a Death Note Analysis!

WARNING: Religious topics, particularly those discussed in the book of Genesis, will be used in this analysis.  If that’s not your cup of tea, skip the post and move on! What would YOU do, if you had a book that would kill anyone whose name was written in it?  This is the dilemma presented toContinue reading “Sin, the Book of Genesis, and Playing God: a Death Note Analysis!”

Overwatch: Diagnosing the Widow and the Reaper

Today, we’re going back to Overwatch for another look at the two most aggressive, murderous, and evil characters in the game: Widowmaker, and Reaper.  These two are the closest things we have to recurring antagonists, and it’s clear that their desire for violence and bloodshed is extraordinary.  Widowmaker’s profession as an assassin, and Reaper’s willingnessContinue reading “Overwatch: Diagnosing the Widow and the Reaper”

Life Is Money: Sensory Deprivation’s Effect on the Brain

It’s obvious: people go to extreme lengths for the sake of cash.  Most blatantly, people can rob a bank, a gas station, hold others up at gunpoint, but such desire for money can be shown in other means as well.  Questionable business decisions, moral ambiguity, participation in crazy game shows, money is quite often theContinue reading “Life Is Money: Sensory Deprivation’s Effect on the Brain”

Psycho Pass: How to Measure Criminality?

  Heyo, Ayron here, and I’ve just gotta say I’ve been missing out on some great anime.  Haven’t been keeping up with recent ones as much as I’d like, Re:Zero, Orange, Erased, etc.  In place of those, I’ve been making my way through a series a good friend recommended to me: Psycho-Pass. For those unaware, theContinue reading “Psycho Pass: How to Measure Criminality?”

Undertale: is Sans a Nihilist?

About time I got to something Undertale-related. So yeah.  Undertale was an absolutely fantastic game.  Despite a fandom that, for many people, over-hyped the game to the point of absurdity, there was pretty good reason for it all.  Between the hugely innovative gameplay, the unique story, great chara- you’ve heard this all before.  And ofContinue reading “Undertale: is Sans a Nihilist?”

A Look at Xenoblade Chronicles: Gnostic Roots

Xenoblade Chronicles is one of the most INTERESTING games I’ve ever had the pleasure to play.  Between great characters, a crazy setting (the entire game takes place on the bodies of two planet-sized robots like what the hell) inspiration from,  of all things, ancient Gnostic beliefs, and a great story to boot, Xenoblade is ridiculous in the bestContinue reading “A Look at Xenoblade Chronicles: Gnostic Roots”

An Angel Beats Analysis: Iwasawa’s Story

SPOILERS I’ll be covering parts of the anime, Angel Beats, that are most certainly spoiler-ific.  So. If you haven’t seen this series, and don’t want to be spoiled, don’t read!  D:   Angel Beats, although it has received some reputation for having plot holes, and being just decent among the feely anime out there, isContinue reading “An Angel Beats Analysis: Iwasawa’s Story”
