Change! Visual Novel Plays with Gender

October 19th - via: cliqist.com
The visual novel genre is full of fun romance-focused games targeted at men and women.

Shooting Muhammad Ali: An interview with Al Satterwhite

October 19th - via: laobserved.com
In 1970, Muhammad Ali was returning to boxing after being banned from the ring for more than three years over his refusal to serve in the U.S. Army. The first opponent he faced during the comeback was L.A.'s Jerry Quarry, the great white hope of the day and a fan favorite at the Olympic Auditorium near downtown. Ali stopped Quarry in Atlanta, Georgia, after opening a deep cut over Quarry's left eye in the third round. Then, not long after dispatching Argentina's Oscar Bonavena, Ali challenged Joe Frazier for the heavyweight championship, the so-called "Fight of the Century," in early 1971. (Read More)

In addition to a heart breaking back story, Ethereal features a number of unique gameplay elements that could allow it to stand out to those less concerned with personal tales of woe than they are with playing a great game. (Read More)
