  1. MMOs and Gaming, Part the Seventh

    If Disney can start the Star Wars franchise up again, then by Mecha-Thor so can I.

    Well, not Star Wars, but you get the idea.

    I find it strangely entertaining that of the MMOs I've looked at recently, the one that interested me most from an overarching design perspective does not exist.

    Leaving aside the whole cliche "if you die in the game you die for real" aspect of Sword Art Online, and the neural interface virtual reality fantasy, the ...
  2. Branching Out

    So I started a new blog out there in the "real world".

    Shambling Towards Bethlehem.

    If you go there, you'll see some familiar things that I put up when I was starting out and needed to pad the site with posts a bit, but about half of it is new material at this point.

    I think.

    And pretty much all of it from here on out will be new material. Probably less on the gaming side of things though, to be honest. And I might revisit ...
  3. So today I totally lost my shit.


    See, I've got a panic disorder. It's weird, it's linked to social anxiety, etc, and once it starts it's almost impossible to put that particular genie back in the bottle.

  4. Student Teaching...

    So I haven't written anything here in a while, largely because I really didn't have too much time during my last semester, and I've mostly been trying to relax so far this summer. Nothing stressful, since in the fall...

    Student Teaching.

    It's... pretty terrifying, to be honest.

    I hate being observed, and student teaching is all about observation. While in theory I get to ease into things, slowly transitioning from being essentially the teacher's helper ...
  5. Supernatural Paradox.

    It's a double-header. I should probably be going to sleep, but between the cough, the headache, and the soul-crushing depression, that might take a while.


    Paradox might not be the right word, really, but it's an interesting conundrum nonetheless.

    See, when someone attributes an event to supernatural causes, the typical argument is that it's something that "cannot be explained". That, since it lies outside of the individual in question's ...
