Crashing Heaven by Al Robertson is a book that i've just started, and it's pretty cyberpunk, leaning towards post-cyberpunk.

@veektarius: I've got to politely disagree. You've gotta Give Chrisjen Avasarala and Bobbie Draper a chance before putting the series to the side. The first book didn't wow me, but after those two, I was hooked.

@humanity: The first book of the Expanse is a little....poorly written. It gets much mcuh better, don't give up yet!

Also OP, I'd suggest watching the show Person of Interest if you haven't already. The first season is pretty formulaic, but i believe that there is a guide for which episodes are essential watching. the further it goes on though...well.

This is the second time that this website has impacted me emotionally.

Glad to have had the chance to read your stuff Austin; can't wait to see what you do with Vice!

Oh, and read The Expanse series, @austin_walker, I think it's what you're looking for as far as a semi-woke space series goes.

This may be an unpopular opinion, but I feel like simply dismissing people who make internet threats as trolls, asshats, fuckwits or see-you-next-tuesdays is counterproductive. These are human beings, just like the rest of us, regardless of how misguided and maladapted their coping mechanisms are.

Some of these people may very well find their definition within the confines of gaming, and take news and views that impact their defining factor in unanticipated or initially unwanted ways as an attack on their very existence.

I am not saying this in order to condone actions such as rants, death threats and doxxing campaigns. What I am saying is that these are humans, who need to be connected to, reasoned with, and corrected with dignity and respect, same as the rest of us who had the benefit and privilege of having people in our lives to guide and correct us when we've acted shitily.

In summary, there but for the grace of God(or the Social Contract, or Decent Parenting, or Friend Groups etc) go we all. Maybe instead of throwing rocks, we should get to the root of the problem and win some hearts and minds.

Well I've already got two in the Mark of Kri games, so if i were to get really greedy, i'd have to say Both Viewtiful Joe 1&2. Oh, and Psi-Ops. And Second Sight.
