  • Gaming In The Wild #33: Pyre

    by John Rogers Concept art: Pyre (2017; Supergiant Games) This week's game is the third polished gem in the Supergiant Games roster. After escaping from Hades last episode, this time I traverse the Downside in the high-fantasy visual novel–RPG–sports game Pyre. It's an inventive and aesthetically stunning one-off game that's like nothing else I've played. (There's a spoiler break half way through, so you can hear about it safely if you wanna play it yourself, or hear some late-game thoughts if you've played it already.)

    by Mike Watson *This video contains strobe effects and rapidly flashing lights.

They engage with current debates and struggles in collaboration with social movements and disseminate their art works through reproduction in various media.

  • Gaming In The Wild #30: Dear Esther

    by John Rogers Still: 'Dear Esther: Landmark Edition' (2017; The Chinese Room) This week's episode takes us to a far-flung Hebridean island to kick through the seaweed and hike over the hills of melancholic 'walking simulator' Dear Esther. Fans of more recent games like Gone Home and What Became of Edith Finch? will find something to enjoy here.

  • Gaming In The Wild #24: Virginia, Ori, and the Aurora Borealis

    by John Rogers Still: 'Ori and the Blind Forest' (2015: Moon Studios) Many games are described as cinematic, but few have gone as far in that direction as Virginia. A BAFTA-winning 2016 narrative 'walking simulator', it's a surreal and fascinating game that recalls Silence of the Lambs as much as Firewatch, and it's the featured game of this week's episode.

  • Solitude And The Sixth Extinction

    by Georgia Preece Environment Editor @theGAPinthelens "The silence where life once thrived is deafening" Solitude is: watching as species numbers tumble around you, while yours continue to grow. It is standing tall in the midst of the sixth wave of mass extinction, mythical progression embedded into the everyday monotony, just enough to distract you from the world falling apart at your feet, until the everyday grinds to a halt. For the first time you fear for your own life, for your families, the immediate threat of a pandemic draws into focus the reality of our own fragility, and that of the world around you. Statistics of critical species pile up, and up, and up…on top of the fragile shoulders of teenage warriors. Solitude is screaming for your survival to be silenced by never ending Brexit news, Donald Trump tweets and the latest Forbes list of billionaires. It’s the isolating feeling of climate grief, of family arguments and being labeled an extremist for environmental activism. It’s learning that love thy neighbour only ever applied when your neighbour looked like you. It’s the realisation that if the Tories are willing to sacrifice the lives of the working class to a pandemic, then what hope do you have when you come face to face with the biggest fight on our hands? It’s wondering if the dinosaurs ever understood their impending doom, if they watched as meteors tore through clouds. If they waited, awe struck, dazed by the sublime of it all, or if they hid in fear, hoping shelter would be enough. It’s questioning if the Orangutan understands the weight of her fate. I really hope they don’t… I cannot even imagine the trauma of a baby clinging to its dead mother’s corpse, after human thirst for palm oil burns their home down around them. Do the elders remember a time when they thrived, when the rainforests they had to roam stretched out for miles either side? Now claustrophobic borders edge inwards, birdsong obscured by machinery. The silence where life once thrived is deafening. Related: What happened after 'Virunga'? Does the Mountain Gorilla look at his mate in awe, simply because she is one of only a few left alive? 440lb of fragility pressed under the thumb of poaching and habitat destruction. How beautiful she is, for simply daring to still exist, in a world that makes it so difficult for her to live. A world that thinks she is more beautiful for her meat than roaming in the wild, sees her as a trespasser in her own home. Does the blue whale look up, remembering a time when the sun diving through the surface of the ocean wasn’t obscured by constant traffic of ships? Do they struggle as the water gets warmer, feel the knot of plastic bags and fishing wire edging down their throat? Do they notice the shifting colours of coral, the dwindling numbers of fish species around them, remember a time when the oceans were thriving? Solitude is man’s disconnect from nature. It’s climbing to the top of the scaffold, feeling it tremble beneath your feet, looking over the edge and realising you have climbed too high. Scrambling to reconnect with the foundations to realise it's too late. Solitude is distance that spans beyond two meters, it’s a crowded room, an empty rainforest, it’s the crumbling facade of progress, revealing our raw animal vulnerability.

  • Locust Radio #3: Four Seasons Totalitarian Landscaping

    by Locust Radio Adam, Tish, and Alex discuss all manner of post-election oddities, and what they tell us about an imminent Joe Biden presidency. We also talk about the prospects for anti-fascism, the tasks of radical art, and why brunch is a stupid idea for a meal in the first place. Plus, poetry from Tish and fellow Locust editor Mike Linaweaver, and the final thoughts of two very presidential severed heads. For the second half of our show, available to SUBSCRIBERS ONLY, we share some of our current writing and research, including a much-overlooked group of writers who tried to claim sci-fi for communism in the 1930s, and an overview of the work of Hugo-nominated fantasy writer Chuck Tingle.

  • Gaming In The Wild #32: Hades

    by John Rogers Still: 'Hades' (2020; Supergiant Games) This week’s show is about Hades, an all-action roguelike dungeon crawler set in the Greek underworld. It’s not my usual genre, but it's by the acclaimed Supergiant studio who made Transistor, Pyre and Bastion, which bodes well for any game. It took a bit of a journey to understand the mechanics, but it's a supremely entertaining game that earned my admiration by the end. It’s out now for Nintendo Switch, Windows and Mac.

  • Did Mark Fisher Hate Weed? Acid Communism and the Stoned Millennial Revolutionary

    by Mike Watson *This video contains strobe effects and rapidly flashing lights. Warning to those who are sensitive.* This video examines an oft-quoted passage from Mark Fisher’s 'Capitalist Realism' that has become the focus of left meme makers in recent months due to its seemingly anti-drug, anti-student message. Here we ask whether Fisher really intended to chastise the youth. Could his critique be aimed at something deeper, such as systemic capitalism and the effect it has on young minds? And what would he make of today’s left wing meme lords and youtubers? Adam Ray Adkins reads a script that he and Mike Watson co wrote in an effort to find out.

    by John Rogers Still: 'Red Dead Redemption 2' (2018: Rockstar Games) This week’s show covers one of the most acclaimed (and best-selling) games of all time – the stunning Western epic, Red Dead Redemption 2. Now 25 hours in, I’ve been breathing the mountain air, learning the dead-eye, and coming to grips with the radical freedom that this stunning outlaw simulation has to offer. I also chat a bit about Fallout 76, and about how I’m recording in the middle of an audible windstorm. Hope it doesn’t become distracting!

  • POEM: 'Verses of Rain'

    by Shama Jan I get sad these days when the rain recedes. When the staccato shows suggestions of losing its vigour, preempting the quiet. Where I live, which is home, it is now the season of rain. Where I live, in these parts of the planet, there are only two seasons, of the rain and of the sun. The season of rain and the season of sun. There's always the hope of one in the other, and sometimes like today, they happen at once, in their playful way, two seasons in one. I get sad, I said, these days when the rain recedes. The sound of rain, that is so loud in the house I live in with its too many windows, carries with it the scent of a friend, long had, and that forever remained. And I want to remain in it as I listen to the sound of rain. Rain is a friend. Or perhaps rain is the meaning of a friend. I've always wondered what it is that rains when it rains. I've asked my friends the question. One of them said, it is a question in it's true sense for it does not hanker after an answer, it is its own end. But I did have an answer. I have sensed the answer. I just cannot say it. All I can say is that it is the song of the cuckoo. And also perhaps, the gentle sway of "the plum tree bough, the perching cuckoo has hastily vacated". It rained afterwards in the poem. LISTEN BELOW Shama Jan is a student of literature at the University of Delhi, India. These days, she finds herself perplexed at the accident that she is, that she has ceased to be surprised at anything at all.
