Activation Degradation

Activation Degradation is a novel by Marina J Lostetter about an android. On Jupiter, defending Earth from aliens. It also has some profound things to say about humanity. So, it’s nothing like the video game Detroit, which I reviewed last week.

God of War

God of War is a Playstation 4 game about the Greek half-god Kratos.
