Remixing Memory: Multiracial Identity Work in 'Remember Me'

JOSHUA WOOD | CLEMSON UNIVERSITY | @thatjoshwood

"denies us the opportunity to play as a character who looks like us and shares a basic...life experience" - Sarah Nixon, NYMGamer
Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, Half-Life 2, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy all feature multiracial characters
“There's trial and error built in to these sequences. You'll find yourself trying to constantly keep track of what the correct first, second and subsequent steps are to make a remix go right. All of this combines into a nice meta-game that has the player not trying to have his own memory betray him.” - Evan Narcisse, Kotaku
"Mixed race people do not possess special talents or abilities simply because they call themselves racially mixed." (Mahanti 6)
"we need a methodology that would take both the way things appear regularly and consistently to us as normal subjects of our order, and are therefore self-evidently evident to our consciousness, and as well...our reflex qualitative mental states and/or sensory qualia, as objects of our inquiry." (Wynter, "Towards the Sociogenic Principle" 59)
