Comments

A little late to the party, but I really enjoyed the interview with Craig Adams. Hearing from the artists and production folks at game studios is always interesting stuff, and a nice little window into how they work. Thanks, Julian!

Re: critical theory, grandtextauto is worth checking out if you're interested in the electronic literature/interactive fiction end of things. MIT Oulipian (see 1, 2) Nick Montfort (of Twisty Little Passages and IF & IF/E-literature writing) posts there pretty often and I believe the folks behind facade are affiliated as well.

GrandTextAuto's a pretty great site (though a little bit deep-end-of-the-pool to the uninitiated). It reposts blogs from a number of different pages. You'll have to get used to reading about experimental poetry.

re: the arishok one on one duel

Spoiler:

1) if you have access to it, you can summon your mabari which helps
2) if you're a mage, don't bother with spells for damage, spells with slow effect still help, but you do better damage just by mashing your basic attack

Only just listened to this and wanted to say that I agree completly with all the criticisms leveled at DA2.
