Game Reviews

When we review a game, we’re not just looking at the quality of the design, how cohesive the story was, or if the voice acting was good or bad. We’re looking deeper, at what the game has to say as a rhetorical device. What does the design and story say about the world? What does it imply about the worldview of the designers? And what, if anything, can we learn from it?

About Hideous Z
Hideous Z, aka Jerod Jarvis, hails from Spokane, Washington, where he lives with his wife, Amanda. A love for coaching, gaming, and writing led to the creation of Duality Games as a side project in college.
When he’s not working on Duality Games, Jerod works as Marketing Manager at Norlift, Inc, attends Spokane Valley Bible Church, and plays with his dog, Tibbers, and mini-pig, Moo.

Hideous Z WPHideous Z has been playing League since Sona was released in 2010. Playing only casually at first, he began to seriously pursue mastery of the game in 2014, and began coaching in 2015. With over 3,000 hours in the game total, including over 1,500 games on Quinn alone, Hideous Z has put an immense amount of time into studying and playing the game, and has a unique talent for breaking down what he knows into easy-to-understand lessons for his students.

Zipplebacks are solitary, preferring to hunt alone. They come out after sundown, prowling dark forests for victims. The attack of a Zippleback is like no other. Instead of breathing fire, a Zippleback makes explosions. One head breathes gas, and the other head lights it.
