Got to hang out with James, meet Spoony, Bill Amend and Jonathan Coulton, got to hit all the concerts. I can't believe this is the first time I made the trip. If you haven't gone yet, I can't recommend it enough. You know in your head that you left your house to come here, and yet showing to PAX makes you feel like you are finally home.
While there, I also had a quick joint interview with James, conducted by Dylan of Giant Fire Breathing Robot. I think it went quite well, especially considering how tired our voices were from hosting eight panels (James) and cheering at concerts (me). Check it out!
This episode deals with all things Legend of Zelda. They rounded up twenty-something people to talk about which Zelda game was their favorite and why. Great fun to listen to. I contributed a little ten minute segment in which I tried to figure out which was my favorite. The results were unexpected.
WARNING: You may find yourself compelled to go back and play your favorite Zelda games after listening. In worse cases, you may find yourself playing them all back to back.
I was recently made aware of a youtube series by one of my viewers, titled: Games Worth Remembering. It's still new, only a few episodes in so far, but thoroughly enjoyable. Each episodes discusses a game which might not be wildly popular, but stands as a high point in gaming's history. So far he has covered Rez and Flower, and is currently in the middle of a two-part episode featuring Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.
If you haven't played one of these games yet, watch the video. If you have, you might still want to just to remember what made these games so wonderful. I really want to go back and play all four of these now.
This place is a supplement to my series of video game lecture videos. Here, I'll post regular progress updates on the next video, discuss various video gaming topics and, occasionally, share my impressions on a specific game.
Whatever. The point is that I don't vanish for three months at a time between videos.
