I can’t believe I’ll be seeing Asian Kung-Fu Generation live next weekend IN Japan. Talk about crossing something off my bucket list :D

Last week, I got really, really angry about the future of gender representation in games thanks to statements made by members of the Assassin’s Creed Unity development team. I decided to channel this anger into a Storify, so others could read the incredibly meaningful discussion that emerged as a result of the Ubisoft controversy.
I wasn’t going to share my personal thoughts on the matter (much more eloquent writers have already done so), until my sister directly reached out for my opinion. I figured it might be worth sharing my frantic Facebook response with all of you. In the end, at least this controversy highlights the fact that our industry has finally begun to identify issues of gender representation in gaming as worth talking about. Let’s call that progress.
Oh and for reals, check out the Storify that I mentioned. There are some great writers and critics in our industry and you should be reading their work.

I’m pretty confident that I post way too many Legend of Zelda memes on Tumblr, but this one was just too perfect to pass up.
THAT FACE.

Oh my goodness Tumblr, I’ve missed you! I’ve been living in Niigata, Japan for the past two weeks and will be here until mid August for a marketing internship with software developer Tsugi. Ironically enough, I ended up locking myself out of my account for a little while by activating extra security measures before leaving the states.
Anyways, I can finally share my recent blog posts on here, which include marvelous (and extremely amateur) video! Make sure to check out my Girl Informer blog for more updates as my summer adventure continues!

I’m extremely happy with how our cosplays for Momocon 2014 turned out! Time constraints meant that I missed a few components here and there, but the end results were pretty wonderful. Can’t wait to improve with future projects :)
