Chic Pixel Plus Episode 54 – Reading Too Much (Into It)

In another overdue episode of Chic Pixel Plus (which should no longer be an issue after Anne submits her thesis in July, promise!), we talk about whether or not we read too much into the media we consume, and Anne gets a little heated up about Twitter Discourse™. Sarah talks about what it was like to make a point and click adventure game for Resist Jam, Anne shares some early NieR: Automata impressions, and Granblue Fantasy comes up once again. Don’t miss Sarah’s impressions of the Kingdom Hearts concert in Tokyo at the end!

About Anne Lee

Also known as apricotsushi. Anne can be written with the kanji for apricot (杏), and sushi was the most quintessentially Japanese thing I could think of when I was 13, resulting in my goofy, albeit memorable, nickname.
