- 'Nier: Automata' Visionary Yoko Taro Is Dreaming of an 8-Bit Call of Duty
So, when I ask how he’d like to see the industry change, Taro’s outlandish response wasn’t as surprising as you might think — especially given his many remarks on the failings of the video game industry at large. “I would like to see aliens or something attack Earth in a way that destroyed all of the silicon-based technology we currently have, so the whole world had to return to the 8-bit era and game creators were forced to make a living developing games in that low-tech environment.”

- The New Barbie Movie and Why We Can't Stop Talking About Politics
The suggestion that patriarchy can be fought through the act of ‘waking women up’ to the unfair double standards they experience is obviously absurd. There is no sense in which the contents of the film, or the use of ‘Barbie’ as a role model, can serve to genuinely equip women to combat the patriarchy. the Barbie movie does not serve as a replacement for ‘talking about politics.’ Instead, it practically begs the audience to conceive of such useless political discussions as genuinely political. In a sense, I may have presented the causal order of this phenomenon backwards. It may be that the desire to ‘talk about politics’ is a cheap reflection of the form of (pseudo) political action roused in audiences through the presentation of consumption as a political act. The gradual transition from this form of consumption serving as a temporary ‘shield’ for forgetting about the political to constituting what defines the political may just be a product of the increasingly hegemonic role that large capitalist firms play within culture. And this phenomenon is, of course, predicated upon an intensification of powerlessness and a withering away of political agency
- Shuzo Oshimi's afterword to Okaeri, Alice
