So, I guess Magicka is a funky 4 player co-op fantasy zark-everything game. They now have a downloadable expansion in which the wizards... fight the Vietnam war? With "napalm" as a magic power?

Womanist Musings has a great post on the white normative in fantasy and romance, The Unbearable Whiteness of Being:

If one purpose of fantasy is providing escapism from a flawed world, it is absolutely necessary that everyone has tools to construct a fantasy world where they can be affirmed for everything they are, including their race. As we walk through a world where whiteness, thinness and cis-genderism is worshipped, for many of us, fantasizing about a better life where we are whiter, thinner, and more 'normal' is the insidious deepening of psychic wounds that eventually catch up with us.
