Picked up All You Need is Kill. Halfway through, solid story with a great premise. I'm waiting for the narrative bombshell to drop. Really cool worldbuilding.

Haven't seen the movie (Edge of Tomorrow, that is), before you ask. ;-) Will probably watch it eventually to compare.

So apparently the comic is an adaptation of the original light novel. Interesting. I'll have to check that out, since I wound up liking the story a good bit.

That "What is the Origin of Your Name?" quiz going the rounds on Facebook has wrapped around from "obviously bad" to "hilariously awful self-parody". It's now suggesting fragments like "SS", "K", and "NNE" as words.

It's kinda amazing in that way.

So I reinstalled Rollercoaster Tycoon. It's every bit as fun (and consumerist) as I remember it.

Raise your hand if you would totally play the Vlaada Chvatil boardgame of Rollercoaster Tycoon. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

Chroma Squad is at a discount on GOG.com, $10. Worth a go? (Maybe I should wait until I've played through some of my other games...)

Well, I haven't been able to really work on this, but the ideas have been simmering around in my brain and developing accordingly.

The game is called Attack of the Brain Eater, and it's about an alien parasite that tries to slowly infiltrate the brains of a group of friends. It's one part card microgame, one part Werewolf-style social game, and one part exploration of the self-defense mechanisms of a community. (Which, arguably, Werewolf is already.) I might mock up some actual physical cards for it, but you can also play it with a normal deck of cards.

Abandon: you can do this to players, in an attempt to isolate the Brain Eater and stop its transmission; abandoned players are no longer part of the game
Stillness: a key component of the game; you fall into stillness when you get abandoned, and after the Brain Eater takes you
Dream: the normal flow of player interactions gets interrupted when someone begins the Dream, a time when the Brain Eater might slip out from person to person...but also the only way to progress the game to its end
Dragonfly: haven't worked out any way to fit this in, but that's okay!

I publish my many of the slides from my PAX Dev talk on making better game books, and propose starting a video series about game book production—provided my Patreon reaches a new goal.
Last week, I gave a talk at PAX Dev on using text design and page layout concepts to make better game books. It was a talk with slides, and I ran the full hour. Some folks have asked for the slides...

You should "check out" this absolutely "hilarious" website.
Dianne spotted this near the campus of University of Kansas. Obviously, if you really live here, you will only jog, skip, or march to class. Posted by bethany at 9:45 PM 0 comments · Email ThisBlogThis!Share to TwitterShare to FacebookShare to Pinterest ...

Some of these aren't that problematic; They aren't necessary, but if it's you're slogan then implying it should be read as if someone were saying it is almost appropriate:

So "walk to class" and http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Qpc-R_Sc7QU/VcYtJQ4o9oI/AAAAAAAAWeA/WU-V-2GRQSk/s400/1947.jpg are examples of where I'm ok with it. Others, like "Fresh" meat just worry me. :(

They're mostly all by the same composer, and I'm a fan of some of the Blazblue stuff myself, though it may be less thematically coherent than the GG stuff

I love Pegasus. They have a nice selection of various games (including indie games), and the staff is great. I love browsing around, and dropping in to geek out about something with the guy at the register.

Simply...fantastic. Walking in there was mildly breathtaking, and the staff is quite friendly. And...well...games from floor to ceiling, and the stock is ridiculously varietized! No trouble finding what I wanted at all!
