    Golden Kamuy and Ainu Represensation

    In the manga, Golden Kamuy, the Ainu people and their culture is a major theme throughout the series. The way they eat, hunt, dress, and go about their lives are explored and raise awareness of this group of people. Should we, as readers, show more support towards authors and artists such as these to spread awareness and attention towards ignored cultures? Is this one of the first in a long trend of authors providing a spotlight towards more obscure cultures?

      The article was quite well done, but I do wish you had gone over other games rather than Bioware and such for great narrative. Something like Mother 3 or Tactics Ogre with its more linear storytelling would’ve been nice to see. There’s a clear end to them, but that doesn’t make them any less well-written narratives in video games.

      Emotionally Investing in Games and Their Characters

      The issue with a lot of game journalism is that it wasn’t really journalism. Very few times did these sites feature articles interviewing developers or voice actors.

      One egregious example I remember was an article about the newest Rockband game becoming the writer feeling sick of the part he was in rather than how the game actually played.

      The article was very lovely, but it could’ve used less summarizing of the books and more focus on how each antagonist affects Harry and the setting. The part about Umbridge’s presence creating a hostile environment of cynicism could’ve been a bit stronger and brushed up more. The section about the Triwizard Tournament being an antagonist could’ve used more work as well.

      However, overall it was quite well done and clearly showed lots of effort put into it. Good job!
