I love to write for fun, especially on games/anime and the culture around them. My goals are:
- to reflect on my own emotional experiences with media
- to critique with nuance, respect, and understanding
- to try and make the fandom a nicer, more empathetic place in any small way I can
If that sounds cool to you, don't be afraid to say hi!

I know I'm fuckin going through it when I catch myself looking at reddit, of all places. I swore that place off ages ago and yet somehow I've caught myself looking for comfort there twice today
The #DragaliaLost endgame grind is no joke...I started seriously preparing for HMS like a week ago and despite having a nearly maxed out adventurer I'm not even remotely close.
Anybody have #Smash DLC predictions? I'm interested in your ideas whether they're realistic or absolute fantasy

The use of caps in the navigation makes it incredibly hard to scan (which is, uh, crucial with this many items). Again, the use of white space here doesn't help the user with their desired action.
There's a huge opportunity here to use navigation to indicate your current progress as you scroll down the list. This is a MASSIVE vertical page, after all. Which is not an issue on its own, but when you combine this with the issues above, and in my previous toot, it's an awful UX

I have this habit of ragging on The Game Awards year after year, so I try not to beat that horse too much, but this web design is so ??????
White space is grand, yes, but this is out of control. No matter what the device you're using, you can't see the category and all of its nominations in the same viewport.
The typography just doesn't make use of the available space. Giant dead zones to the right of the images on large displays, lines wrap way too early on small displays
If you're anything like me, you've been obsessing over #Deltarune every single day since it came out. But something's had me puzzled - why is the battle theme called "Rude Buster"?
In my latest, I explore how the song's structure mirrors the game's:
I'm hoping to publish something of some variety before the weekend's done. I'm participating in the 2018 itch.io Game-Off too - still plenty of time to join that if you're interested!
I'm taking the excuse to get my hands dirty with PICO-8 and game dev in general, so don't be afraid even if you're new!

Casual writer & critic. I love to think/talk about emotional experiences with #jrpgs, games and anime. Fan of thoughtfulness, social equity, & giant robots!
