Matt at Normal Happenings wrote a phenomenal post about Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and the underlying theme of carrying on despite everything trying to tear you down or trip you up. With my grandfather’s sudden passing and a job that never feels secure, Matt’s post felt like a life boat, coming just in the nick of time. Give it a read. You’ll be glad you did.

Luna over at GamersUnitedGG wrote a fantastic post on female video game characters in honor of Women’s History Month. From Ms. Pacman to Samus Aran, she gives a look at some of our favorite and influential female characters from the 80’s and 90’s. Give it a read and comment with your favorite female game protagonist!

In case you didn’t know, I’m a HUGE fan of Doctor Who. I am beyond excited for Jodie Whitaker’s Doctor. I also love the gals over at The Ultimate Guide to the Fashion of Doctor Who who put together this awesome list of fan-made title sequences for the new Who.

Megan at The Dragon’s Tea Party graces us with another #rant. Man, do I love a good rant. She talks about her frustration at non-gamers and their perception of the gaming world and gamers. I’m sure it’s all things you’ve heard before and frustrations you’ve experienced. It’s good to see someone put it down in words.

When you find that you can’t even put a couple of hours towards your gaming hobby anymore and adulting is getting you down, remember you’re not alone. Check out The Dragon’s Tea Party’s Adulting and Gaming: My Struggle To Do Both.
