Sorry, I forgot to update back at MAGFest. Partially because it was MAGFest and MAGFest is like heaven, only with more ravers and expensive food. Mostly because I was still recovering from Katsucon which is like every Japanese meme rolled into one and given a bachelor’s degree in fun.
I’m really tired. The metaphors aren’t working. The point is! Here’s a new article. It’s an essay of my MAGFest panel How Free-2-Play Games Are Changing Video Game Narratives. It talks about how all those cheap little games we download are effecting the very stories we experience in video games. It’s a wee bit alarmist but not untopical either. Check it out.
A full convention report is (probably) forthcoming, but for now, enjoy.
