OneShot: A Journal of Critical Games
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 2, 2018

As culturally-significant artifacts, games have garnered an increasing amount of attention from academia as well as business, marketing, and other industries once considered outside the realm of entertainment. Study of play, now out of its infancy, is likewise enjoying increased clout in industries looking to use this research to motivate, instruct, and develop new work. At this stage of maturity, discussions between and within the densely overlapping game development and studies disciplines have largely been limited to traditional forms of textual and verbal discourse, but that need not continue to be the case.

Critical Essays on Tom Petty

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 - 10:53am
Crystal Sands, editor

When Tom Petty died on October 2, 2017, Americans mourned the loss of the iconic rock n’ roll legend. Fans from all over the country have articulated how much the loss of Petty has impacted their lives, to many, much more so than they expected. Many would have a tough time dealing with and healing from the loss of America’s musical storyteller. 

Mikael Wood from the Los Angeles Times writes, “[Tom Petty] was perhaps the quintessential American rock star, with an iconic shades-and-long-hair look, a nasal voice gloriously unsuited to any other genre and a seemingly bottomless bag of tunes that felt as though he’d written them to soundtrack the specifics of your life.”
