Sundays are for being lazy. Here’s the best writing about videogames from the past week. (Although this week is unusually light on vidgams. You’re welcome/sorry.)
For Vice (which Waypoint has now regrettably been folded back into, by the way), Elizabeth Ballou delved into the fascinating and sometimes creepy world of Ingress, an augmented reality game about spies and logistics. I love how people get so deeply invested, but the way that tips over into genuine harassment is disturbing. Ballou’s article is only about that in part though. It’s riveting and you should read it despite the slightly misleading headline.
