December 03, 2016

Edit: I’m aware of the audio inbalance. New hardware on my PC, and I need to check recording balances during production next time!

Gil Almogi has loved video games since he was young. To that end, he is a freelance video game critic. The majority of his work up until recently appeared on Game Revolution, but he has also written for the Sumthing Else blog, Armless Octopus, and Game Music Fans. His particular interests when it comes to games criticism involve representation, identity, and humanity.
