Hey all, didn't have time for a blog post today on account of running all over creation paying bills. But here's some cool stuff I read this week that you might be interested in:
The Power of Imagined Worlds
This is a wonderfully dense interview with Austin Walker, the GM and showrunner of Friends at the Table. It's well worth the read if you're into that stuff (and you probably are if you're on this blog)
The Oral History of Tony Kushner's play Angels in America
An even longer read, this details the conception, development, and release of Angels in America, a play about gay men during the AIDS epidemic of the 80s. It's a bit of an emotional piece, since you get the story out of the mouths of people who put so much of their lives into it. Good stuff, even if you're not into theater.
Teens React to Bayonetta 2
Okay, so I didn't read this. But it's a really fascinating video. I had never put much thought into Bayo2's touch screen controls, but I can definitely see a very specific niche for them. It's a cool feature that allows players who maybe aren't great at technical execution-based character action games to still experience the awesome spectacle of the game and just have a good time.
