TV programmes, films, books and games give us the opportunity to explore distant worlds without even having to leave the comfort of our own bedrooms; they also allow us to see representations of countries and towns that we wouldn't be able to visit in person. Intercontinental travel is still as expensive as hell, and a lot of people still don't own a passport, since they don't anticipate being able to venture beyond their home country any time soon.
I have never left the European Union (well, that will change next year...) I moved to Germany from the UK three and a half years ago, so I probably do have the desire to travel pumping through my veins, but the farthest afield I have travelled from my hometown of Rotherham is a holiday to Lanzarote when I was two years old. As a youngster, my parents were nervous about long-distance flights, and as a 26 year old, the funds for my dream holiday sadly need to go towards other more pressing matters, such as saving for a deposit.
But games that do the globetrotting for me are adding to the list of places I would visit if I won the lottery. Who knows? Maybe if interest rates become anything less than godawful, I will be able to plan one or two of my dream vacations in a few years' time. So, here are the games that have wanted me to get out of my armchair and pop down to the travel agent's office.
Did Catherine make you want to do a space tourism?

It's a three-day weekend for most people in the US (apology in advance if you're not getting Monday off) and there's no better time to scroll endlessly away on the web, basking in capitalism delight. If you've passed the holiday sales hangover, then this respite from our weekend deal hiatus may just be what the doctor ordered.
This week we're spotting tons of sales event with GameStop continuing with their popular pre-owned game sale where you can pick up 4 used games under $4.99 for $10. It's the same set of titles you've seen before and about 3,000 titles qualify. Most are of the old platform variety, though there are a dozen Wii U and PS4 titles, along with about sixty Xbox One games.
In Winter/New Year sale land, both GOG and Humble Store are continuing the PC digital game sale frenzy. If you missed out on Steam Store's Winter Sale because you were in a cave somewhere during much of December (just like us!), Humble Store's sale is essentially Steam Sale redux. GOG's New Year sale is slightly better in our opinion as we're spotting quite a bit more new historic low titles. In either case, check the links to both sales event below for a price breakdown on noteworthy picks.
Finally, in the hardware department, GameStop is offloading a number of pre-owned Wii U system starting at $139.99. You'll find a Wii U 32GB system with two games for $139.99 (Lego Marvel Super Heroes and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed); or the better bundle for $169.99 with Super Smash Bros. and Super Mario 3D World; there's also a console-only Wind Waker themed for $139.99 but we feel this is a moot deal given no games are included.

As a gay, there is nothing more infuriating than when critics and the press praise a straight actor for playing a gay character. Unless he is being teabagged and fisted on camera, that shit ain't brave. That's just a guy doing his job. By the way, maybe if Armie Hammer was getting fisted and teabagged on camera, people would have gone to see Call Me By Your Name.
But second to that is the argument that you can't be homophobic because at one point in your life a gay was in close proximity to you. That's the position Quantic Dream founder David Cage is taking following a trio of articles accusing the studio of being of a toxic workplace. As reported in Le Monde, Mediapart, and Canard PC -- side note, don't click that last link unless you have a container of eye bleach nearby -- Cage and Guillaume de Fondaumière, Quantic Dream's co-CEO and CFO, are facing a variety of accusations including overworking staff, overlooking racist and sexist jokes including 600 crude Photoshops, and inappropriate behavior.
Le Monde -- the only paper without a paywall -- interviewed 15 former employees about their experience with the company. While Cage's work ethic is almost universally praised, his management style is not. In February of last year, an IT manager for the company was sent a cache of 600 Photoshops featuring employee faces pasted onto sometimes sexist or homophobic imagery, the earliest of which dates back to 2013. Also, there's some Nazi stuff thrown in there because of course there is.
Cage and de Fondaumière told Le Monde they only saw the images considered funny even though they were cc'd on emails containing a link to the folder with all of the questionable material. Le Monde spoke with Cage at Quantic Dream where he argued the company is not a "rugby locker room," which sounds like a play on that "locker room talk" nonsense we had to deal with in 2016. The best part of this entire piece comes directly after that when William Audureau, the article's author, notes that just behind Cage is a picture of a dick with balls dropping a fart.
Perhaps most damning is two employees recounted an incident where Cage was viewing security camera footage of a burglary and he turned to an employee of Tunisian descent and inquired if he was related to them.
This weekend saw not only the first Splatfest of 2018 take place, but also the first global Splatfest in some time. Players worldwide battled it out on Nintendo's arena-shooter Splatoon 2, in a fight which saw Pearl's love of the Action genre take on Marina's penchant for Comedy.
After a day of colourful carnage, Action cleanly won the vote, taking 58% of the public poll. Comedy, however, pulled itself back into the game in both Solo and Team play, scoring a narrow 51% in both modes. Thus, Comedy takes the final victory 2 - 1. I guess the power of laughter should never be underestimated, even when compared to an uzi-wielding Chuck Norris' flick.
Marina is probably pretty damn stoked to win the first Splatfest of 2018. Perhaps this could be a reversal of fortunes for the funky octopus, who came in second place to Pearl over the cumulative course of 2017. It will be interesting to see whether she builds momentum over the coming months, or whether her adorable gremlin buddy will maintain dominance.
Splatoon 2 is available now on Nintendo Switch.
Well, that was a clothes call! Steiffgal saw a wonderful antique Steiff doll in a really eye-catching outfit listed online, but the seller would not ship to the United States. After a little back and forth with the seller - including assuring her that this doll would love her new home in America and would have lots of new Steiff friends here - everything worked out and the transaction was completed. All's well that ends well! Now it's your turn to check out this darling girl and see what makes her, and her costume, so appealing. Does she call to you as well?
Such a morsel of information made Steiffgal hungry to learn more. It turns out that Vierlande is a four district area of about 77 square kilometers located in Hamburg in southeast Germany. Digging a little deeper, it appears that Lena is wearing a traditional Vierlande outfit which includes a dark dress, white shirt, lighter apron, elaborate bodice, and a large hat. Steiff has a long tradition of producing dolls in national or ethnic clothing, starting at the turn of the 20th century when they made a series of regionally dressed farmers from different areas around Germany. The picture of the Vierlander on the right is from 1900 and is from Museums Victoria in Australia. As always, Steiff has done a masterful job capturing the details and authenticity behind this lovely outfit.
Steiffgal hopes you are totally in-to this great doll out-fit!
