Skyrim Valentine’s Day Cards by Jemma Salume
Jemma’s special VDay cards are perfect for the wandering Redguard or feral Khajiit you’re been questing after. The Thieve’s Guild stole all my belongings, Valentine, but you stole my heart.

Still Life: Vidya Gaemz by Duncan Harris
Duncan Harris takes photography of the beautiful vistas you often overlook, trample, or blow up in the virtual world of video games. From Duncan, and quite possibly my favorite quote of forever:
“I think what it boils down to is that there’s just an awful lot of dumb shit in videogames, much of it by necessity, underneath and between which is some truly stupendous art. We know, or at the very least /suspect/ that it’s there, but as players it’s impossible to know its extent. A really bad analogy would be something like Mount Rushmore. An incredible and iconic feat of construction, a really commanding spectacle - but have you ever actually been there? The observation point’s miles away! But then you watch North By Northwest or buy a postcard and it’s magnificent again. Imagine the view from the Mount Rushmore lookout post and put a man in fancy dress in front of it tea-bagging a mannequin, reading lines from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace like they were Shakespeare”.

Assassin’s Creed Nouveau by S. Strand
A beautiful series by Strand, who wanted to balance the seriousness of the game with humerus captions to, you know, lighten the mood of silently stabbing somebody in a crowd.
