Brief love notes to two games about racing bikes and the implied comparisons between them.
A brief reflection on my time spent both in the real Appalachia and the one of Fallout 76. It was surreal seeing this game be set in my home state, and the outcomes and fallout of its release were the jumping off point I needed for my thoughts on my background and life to coalesce. I still feels it has structural issues, but don't my thoughts have that as well?
Submitted for the March 2019 GDC Game Narrative Review Program, this narrative analysis discusses the ways MGSV's extratextual cut content and communities work with the open world's emergent gameplay and storytelling. Perhaps excessive, but in my opinion a good distillation of the hours of conpiracy YouTube videos and lengthy text posts that went into its research.
