Aug 24th 2008 5:49PM So is that the reason why Jonathan Blow's been saying the same thing about people critical of Braid? Because he's a hack?

Tom Bihn's Checkpoint Flyer: a TSA-approved bag worth owning {Engadget}

Aug 19th 2008 3:22AM The TSA doesn't ever approve or endorse any bag. Even if a bag meets all the news TSA guidelines, they can reject it for any reason they deem appropriate.

Apr 17th 2008 11:29PM He only won because Britney missed the regional. You know it to be true.

A warrior and his spirit gear {WoW}

Apr 5th 2008 4:50PM I've played WoW for two and a half years and never heard anyone use the word "apping." Anywhere. Not even in Trade.

All the World's a Stage: Magical table, magical screen {WoW}

Mar 2nd 2008 10:43PM Earthdawn! O_O There's some memories. I still have my 1st-edition books.

Damn you, Microsoft/FASA/Jordan Weisman, for sitting on that fantastic license. A shame FASA dissolved so much that even the ties between Earthdawn and Shadowrun got axed from the canon.

You pointed to the good stuff RedBrick Games has been doing, but Living Room Games also licensed it. They haven't done much with it in two years, though.

The problem with roleplaying in WoW is heartbreakingly simple: Even in instances, there's no mutability to the game world. You never make a difference in the world — you can't. Even with all the pretty excellent RP add-ons out there, almost every alteration you perform eventually just resets itself.

The only lasting effects can be with other players, but WoW provides such a limited toolset for those interactions and no enforcement of immersion.

Women in Games: Pinckard, Tory talk about industry, Jade Raymond {Joystiq}

Dec 12th 2007 6:24PM Pinckard: "Because — and I’ve written a little bit about this before — if you’re a woman in a male-dominated field, you’re naturally going to stand out."

Rubbing a vibrating game peripheral on your pussy and posting pictures of it on your blog certainly helps a girl stand out. I'm surprised that didn't get brought up.

(Note: I really like Jane, and her band, and GGA. Just funny to see her say this without any mention of the Rez post.)
