'45 - Psychobilly Retropocalypse

Posted by Kyro Sk On 2010-04-22 3 comments

The title is mis-leading... intentionally.... oh ok, just fuck off if you don't think it's that clever.

Here is the stuff I wanted to share

Keep your timezones straight.

This is what I wish I had from DriveThruRPG (mostly 4e stuff)

WotC is releasing Dark Sun this fall, and I'm really excited. Rich Baker talks a bit about game design and world building which segues into the next topic nicely.

Currently working on a fairly unusual 4e setting of my own.
Even seen Kaena The Prophecy? It takes a sliver of it's soul from that story, but with a much more expanded scope and some high fantasy flavor.

Snow on Monday - seriously? At least I can squeeze in a D&D session Sunday with some good fortune. Everybody has these crazy professional schedules, or marriages, or animals, and the hardest part about getting together is the getting older. I never understood when it happened to my parents, but I'm starting to get it now.

FUCK.

On the upside, as I mentioned I'm laying the ground work for writing my own campaign now instead of re-writing someone else's (I expect my Iron Kingdoms game to wrap up by June). I guess I just needed to test myself a bit and see how a revision went before I took the plunge on my own. I'm looking for contributors (story, concept, etc...) so let me know if you're interested in hearing the precis.

Much love...

At Facebook's f8 conference, CEO Mark Zuckerberg told developers that Facebook applications would no longer have to dump any data they've collected on you after 24 hours. If you've got apps installed that might have prying eyes, here's how to uninstall them.

Are Games Art?

Posted by Selbonaut On 2010-04-21 6 comments

So I am sure that there is no debate amongst those of us who read this blog that we all agree that Games are Art. Roger Ebert on the other hand decided to post on his blog on the Chicago Sun-Times that games are not art (found here). I have not read the whole article because I don't need to read all of it. He doesn't know what he is talking about. There have been lots of people chiming in all over the internet over this and by far the funniest response, and almost lack there of was from Gabe at penny-arcade. Here is a snipit of his answer "I say games are art and last time I checked, I was beating Michelle Obama, Oprah and Taylor swift in Time's 100 most influential people list." (That list is here)

You are the walrus.

You are he as I am he as I am he and we are all together. I've been a naughty boy, I've let my hair grow long. I am sitting in an English garden, eating eggs and waiting for the sun to come. I am watching them snort like pigs in the sky reading Edgar Alan Poe. Koo koo kachoo.

You are both rational and emotional. You value creation and discovery, and feel strongly about what I create. At best, you're innovative and intuitive. At worst, you're scattered and unpredictable.

A Response to Kyro's Bacon Taco from 2009

Last year Kyro posted a link to the bacon taco, which he then failed to make over the holidays. Our arteries still function, yes, but what a manly way to die it would have been!

Potential Reason for iPad

If this is what all books can look like on the iPad, then I am still thinking that I will get a 2nd Gen one. I was always interested to see that the developers do with it, and I am liking what I see.

I am both orderly and instinctive. I value community and group identity, defining myself by the social group I am a part of. At best, I'm selfless and strong-willed; at worst, I'm unoriginal and mindless.

You can go ahead and take the test yourself.
I can dig on Green/White - the best and worst are humblingly accurate.

Cory Doctorow has a few reasons why you shouldn't buy one. Personally, I think I'd like to own one. How 'bout you?
