For Your Consideration 

The Last of Us, Corpse Craft and The Riveter

GAME | This whole zombie trend is getting kind of over the top, right? See, that’s what I was thinking, until I played The Last of Us. The apocalypse has come and gone, and America is left with a torn landscape populated by criminals, cannibals and some of the most gruesome, mutated zombies you’ve ever seen. The game — which we reviewed here in June, but thought you might need a reminder — plays out like a feature film, soundtrack and all, and you might find yourself getting choked up just like you would at the theater. It has its fair share of horror-style moments that will have you running to turn the lights on.

APP | OK, so I’m a little late to the party here because I just got an iPad, but maybe you haven’t heard of Corpse Craft: Incident at Weardd Academy either. This game is some of the coolest shit I’ve seen in a long time: It’s like Edward Gorey, Harry Potter and Tetris all rolled into one. The gist: some other Brit kids are being dicks at school, so you launch an onslaught of creepy creatures on their house to set it on fire. It’s frustrating and cute, and you will be totally obsessed.

MAGAZINE | We here at The Inlander have a mostly female staff, but that’s a rarity in journalism. So we were all excited to see a copy of the new female-centric mag The Riveter. We got our copy of the Summer 2013 issue today: it’s the size of a ’zine, but it’s laid out like a little, tiny version of a serious, glossy magazine, mixing journalism and essays. It’s not going to upend the gender scales in journalism, but we can get behind any young, ambitious female journalists looking to stir the pot.
