tfw @gregoryawilson geeking out about Knight Rider on stream suddenly inspires me to work on another thing... 🤔

Semi-random question of the evening:

Raise your hand 🙋 if you live in a place other than the US & do not have access to at least one of the popular streaming media services (HBO Max, Peacock, Paramount+, Apple TV+ - you name it).

Black rock is mainstream now—but it wasn't in the 00s though we invented it. I wrote about what @TVonTheRadio meant to me, and how the racism they faced also affected BIPOC bands from Trinidad who tried to make it. 🙏 to @NylonMag & @alyssavingan. nylon.com/entertainment/in-som

On the one hand, this game looks absolutely rad and I definitely want to play it!

On the other hand, seeing this trailer while I'm still working on does suddenly make me terribly anxious about the name?

as a designer & poet who likes to think about reading game text as a kind of play in the same sense of 'unlocking' & wants so badly to make/play more games where thinking abt/emotionally experiencing rules is part of playing, I really dig this thread SO EVERYONE READ IT

I moderated a panel about the intersections between poetry and games this week. It's a really rich topic and we could only cover so much in the time all…

turns out that Sesame Street knows that writers are just parents of word-children

(jokes aside, this is quite sweet and valuable at present for a lot of folks I reckon)

HE WAS NOT JOKING

I REPEAT

SOUND THE ALARMS GAMERS

YOUR THING IS HAPPENING

It's truly wild about this kickoff event how many of these promos that are either "we paid a very talented motion graphics team to make an ad that takes the same time to play as it would take for me to say the thing" or "I said the thing. That's it! No, really! No context! Bye!"

birbsite: 

What would really win my attention about House of Ashes is if it purposely or inadvertently makes a statement about American military interventionism as an act of historical desecration… but how much you wanna bet it’s just a weird, violent monster movie kind of experience?

birbsite: 

Things of note in the last howeverlong of the Summer Game Fest kickoff:

• I haven’t played Among Us but the sheriff role may be neat
• was that a Gungrave game?
• VtM: Blood Hunt does look cool.

birbsite: 

What does the director’s cut of an already Very Auteur game even include? Not even bashing, but will Death Stranding include even more dialogue indulgences? Or more walking?

birbsite: 

METAL SLUG TACTICS?! Real talk I have actually never played a Metal Slug game, but all I want is more stuff like this.

birbsite: 

This looks like it's going to be absolute fire and I am here for it, especially if Aabria Iyengar is GMing.

Quick, a question for all my BIMPOC writers/editors/publishers etc.—

name one thing that you and other POC readers implicitly understand when reading a POC story that white readers have literally misjudged because they didn’t get it or weren’t bothered to look it up.
