Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games is the only Mario game that has ever received a logo in Russian (despite Nintendo of Russia releasing official translated versions since 2011), which is fitting considering the fact that it is the only Mario game where the plot takes place entirely in Russia.

Notes for Yuri on Ice panel at 221b Con 2017

Here’s basically what I said for my five-minute comments at the #221bcon2017 Yuri on Ice panel.


Notes on genre and political context for Yuri on Ice

Yuri and Victor, the main couple, are examples of what Mark Gatiss describes as “incidentally gay,” meaning their sexual orientation isn’t the main focus of the story.

Figure skating is at once the gayest sport and a homophobic sport.
