Made mojito bubbles tonight. They're completely self-contained mojitos that burst when you bite them.

I have a character named Tristan in prologue of my book :)
Nice kid.

OK, now how do I link Google+ with Spotify with LinkedIn with Twitter with Facebook with AIM with Klout with Kotaku with my brain muscles?

I heard typing 55378008 into a traditional, old-school calculator and flipping it upside down usually works in tying together accounts. Makes about as much sense as anything else on Plus.

We tried our hands at a live interview show during E3. We had on tons of great guests, including developers for:

Battlefield 4
Infamous: Second Son
The Division
Destiny
Quantum Break
Call of Duty: Ghosts
Titanfall
Batman: Arkham Origins
Hohokum

My favorite moments included chatting with Sam Lake about Alan Wake 2, discussing the real world inspirations of The Division and trying to get Vince Zampella to add a special "Belly Buster" self-destruct to Titanfall.

Special thanks to co-hosts Michael McWhertor, Griffin McElroy and Tracey Lien

Now go check them out and let me know how we can improve. Me sucking less doesn't count as a suggestion. :D

Chatted with TernTV last week about their notion of reinventing the way people experience classic novels. I'm a big fan of books, but I'm kind of fascinated with their ideas. http://kotaku.com/5819929/the-reinvention-of-literature

Neat idea. Glad they're adamant it's not a "game" so much as an interactive medium. With no way to affect the gameworld, I'd agree it doesn't qualify as a game. Though perhaps this lack of feedback will make these reinventions ultimately unappealing.
