Chris is a complicated figure, loved by her own country who knows not what she does, despised by the enemies that know her handiwork too well. Like I said, I don’t go in for chivalry unless it’s willing to twist the knife. And Chris’s fundamental ethos is one of service, of selflessness. So it was interesting to see her struggle to find herself.


Let’s be honest: Locke is the reason this domain exists. Everyone is allowed one creepy obsession, and the 16-bit treasure hunter is mine to embarrassing degrees. I sort of fell into rabid fangirling at the age of nine, and I have yet to fall out of it. But it’s a testament to Locke that he’s just as appealing to me now as he was then. At first I loved him for the all ways that he is a hero, now I love him for the reasons he isn’t.
