kylo holds rey

New episode is ready to shoot, but scheduling conflicts prevented us from doing it this weekend. Instead, I bought a bunch of Star Wars Lego and am recreating shots from the film by memory.

Here’s the famous scene where Kylo Ren swat a fly off Rey’s face.

What a nice guy.

Board Games ≠ Video Games: The Folly of Myth

Posted on Monday, 10 November 2014 by

A Review of Myth by Mercs, LLC

I really wanted to like Myth.

I loved the idea of the game. A “DM-free” dungeon crawler that uses procedural rules to determine how enemy mobs spawn and behave without needing a dedicated player to control the baddies. It seemed great on paper. A fully co-op game where everyone can be a hero and work together to “beat the game”. The art was cool, the classes unique, the models were detailed and creative. The Kickstarter made almost a million dollars despite its modest $40,000 goal. Everything seemed to be in place for a big hit. So why didn’t it work?

The problem is, they designed it like a video game. (more…)
