Creativity is one of the most important things a human being can express. It’s good for our brains, our hearts, and our souls. It allows people to explore themselves and others in a deep way, something introspection and discussion can’t always do. When consuming others’ creative works, you’re getting a piece of who they are as a person, whether they wanted or intended that or not.
Creativity allows us to function as a society. We’re not merely surviving—we’re living, hour to hour and day to day. How we spend our time digesting others’ creative works—whether that’s a movie, a novel, or a collection of poems—is important to how we grow as people and a community of human beings. I hope reading about the creative content I enjoy (or don’t) gets your creative juices flowing and inspires you to make something great and uniquely your own. At the very least maybe you’ll discover something new you might be interested in.
Just Cause 3
I reviewed Just Cause 3 for GazetteXtra. Read all about it here.
Pokémon Picross is a fun puzzle game bogged down with microtransaction BS. It’s a puzzle game in which you fill in grids to make drawings of Pokémon by following instructions that show how many squares in each row and column should be filled. It’s surprisingly addictive, and it’s fun to see your Pokémon “drawings” after completion and “capture” them to use to make challenging puzzles easier. I only wish the game wasn’t blockaded by time limits and locked off areas that you can either pay to bypass or wait long enough to gain access to. Still, I can’t complain, because the base game is free on 3DS.
