The Best of Scanline Media… So Far

Jen: Let’s be real for a moment: this has been a frightening week in an already turbulent year. I am still coping with the knowledge that this country has elected a figure who ran on promises of eroding the rights and safety nets of myself and many others that I know and love. But we’re …

A Personal Announcement

Today marks a significant change for me. Effective immediately, I am transitioning from Joseph Benjamin Unkle III to Jennifer Unkle, or Jen for short, and will be assuming she/her pronouns. My article bylines, as well as all future video/podcast content, will reflect this transition. This change will undoubtedly be surprising to some, while others have …

Bottle Crow is Moving!

Hey folks, it’s Colin. Thought I’d put this up here real quick for people who come here wondering what the deal is with Bottle Crow. The short version? The feed broke, and the way it’s set up, we can’t fix it. We need to start a new one. If you’re subscribed to our RSS feed …

Another week, another Playlist! Colin’s under the weather, so I’ll be taking the reins for the day. I wish him the best of luck and hope he has a speedy recovery! Now, onto the games…. -Ben Spelunky Traditionally, roguelikes and I don’t mix. I certainly appreciate games like The Binding of Isaac and Paranautical Activity, …

Here’s what we played this week: PLAYED Outlast Ben: When anything related to horror is marketed by bragging about audience reactions, I’m immediately skeptical. Everyone consumes entertainment differently; I once sat behind a buff man with tribal tattoos in a theater, and he wailed when a harmless cat leaped from a garbage can. You can …

Playlist: August 23rd

Fun fact: Scanline Media has had a growth in views every month since we launched it. Not mindblowing, but a little thing that we’re proud of. August might be the first month where that’s not the case. Granted, we been slack- I was out of town for a week, so I wasn’t posting anything then, …
