Last weekend, I had the distinct privilege to preview Honor Code Games' upcoming horror game, Narcosis. It was the first time I tried on an Oculus Rift and holy shit.... This is pretty much the future.
Oh! And I got to interview the team! Check out the interview below to hear how Honor Code is making a horror game on the Rift.

I can admit when I'm wrong, and I was totally wrong about smacking down Apple's 3D Touch. As it turns out, a simple right-click for mobile phones is a very, very big deal.
"Here’s the deal: Apple makes a big hurrah out of the small things. To Android users, this is infuriating. Used to less than ideal opportunities to customize their devices, and the flexibility to install any number of imperfect workarounds, Apple’s late-to-the-party tweaks often feel inconsequential. Android users aren’t wrong to feel this way, especially since Apple’s refinements to Android’s complicated user experience are often given credit for popularizing or mainstreaming Android’s experiments."
Check out my piece over at The Toggle to see why.

A few nights ago, I failed miserably trying to convince my boyfriend that MGS V was a big deal. Unable to articulate my way through the entire history of Konami, Kojima, and Metal Gear, I decided to show him the reveal trailer for The Phantom Pain. In doing so, I forgot that my boyfriend hates gore and violence. In case you forgot what that trailer is like, a lot of people get shot in the head in really upsetting, personal ways.
"Ugh, Carter. Why did you show me this? It's just guns and shooting. This isn't interesting!"
Ouch. Metal Gear Solid is about so much more than guns and shooting - and I need to write about why.
Back in 2008, I made the decision to get not only a Bachelor's in Business (Marketing), but also a Bachelor's in Film at American University. Flash forward 8 years later and I'm celebrating my one year anniversary as PicsArt's Senior Community Manager. It's such an honor to work with the team the team that has grown PicsArt into an app with 65million people using it every month and over 250million downloads worldwide. Our San Francisco team continues to grow with the addition of extremely smart, fun, and driven people who are a joy to see every day. PicsArt is challenging, creative, exciting, and, as it so happens, it's also the perfect fit for me.
When I decided to study both film and marketing, I never thought I'd have the opportunity to support this many artists on such a global scale. It's a privilege to be where I am and my path here wasn't always as clear cut as it looks in retrospect. From Greek Week to Google+ to UserVoice to gaming, my commitment to overcommitment and a sporadic attention span have led me to a workplace that makes me feel at home, important, and aware.
I look forward to growing as a contributor here at PicsArt as we continue to improve / grow our platform for as long as I can. Thank you to everyone here who challenged me or supported me. Google+ was an extremely important part of me getting to where I wanted to be and I recognize that. :)

Google. You infuriate me. The most elegant product you've ever designed was the Google homepage back in 2009. It's powerful, but all of the complexities remain under the hood. You look at the Google homepage and it just works. You aren't left staring at any part of it saying, "Huh. I wonder what that does..."
With the Nexus 6P, announced today, you immediately wonder how it works, what it is, and why it looks the way it does. The Nexus 6P is everything that's wrong with Google; a personification of the inability to elegantly combine technology, advanced features, and design. This is what's been holding Google back in the phone arena for the better part of a decade and, unfortunately, it doesn't look like they're learning their lesson.
I get it: Apple plays catchup so that they can refine and simplify innovative features, but could everyone else get that too?
Her story about how she lost her husband Andrew (also transgender) is one of the most heart-wrenching, powerful stories I've ever come across. I never knew Andrew, but, through Sarah's writing, I've learned just how much of an impact he had on Sarah and how important his role was / is in Sarah's journey.
I spent the first twenty minutes of my day today sobbing my sad tears into proud tears - and I highly recommend this read. Sarah McBride's story (so far) is what movies are made of and where heroes come from. This is one of the most honest, well-written pieces I've ever read.
