How do you do? This weekend, we’re going to take a look at Neopets. Remember Neopets?
- Nathan Grayson of Kotaku writes about GCON, a gaming convention for women in Saudi Arabia. Running such a convention in a country where gender segregation is enshrined in law provides some unique challenges.
- Kotaku community blogger Cal K. Rool writes about revisiting popular turn-of-the-millennium virtual pet website Neopets. It’s basically a ghost nowadays, with most of its users having aged out of it. I never got into Neopets, but it’s weird that something that was so popular with my friends is now all but forgotten.
- Finally, Mallory Ortberg of The Toast writes erotica from an alien perspective. It’s gross and hilarious.
That’s all for now. Catch ya later, punks!
