 News Post: Interior Decorating Posted: Wed, 18 Oct 17:35:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: Gabe has managed to spread this Battle Royale disease to Kara, and it infected all the people I used to play Destiny with.  I’ve told him repeatedly: this is not the cool game to play.  He doesn’t have the receptors to collate this kind of data.  So if I want to play a game with…  anyone, I’m playing this. Gabe and I found a very nice house with a very nice view, right in the middle of the circle, so we thought hardening it might be a strong play.  What this meant as a course of action was very distinct for each of us, and we both set about doing…

 News Post: Transference Posted: Mon, 16 Oct 17:51:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: After we talked about Fortnite: Battle Royale last week, Greazy-E installed it on the PS4 here in our office and a stream of people from the building found themselves drawn inexorably toward it.  Except Kiko.  Kiko is staying out on principle. A phenomena that started at Mike’s house and then filtered into our celestial realm here is to spectate the match out and watch your lineage.  Maybe it’s technically the reverse of a lineage, but still.  It’s so engaging that there has to be a way to make it part of the game proper. Having spent more time with…

 News Post: Provenance Posted: Fri, 13 Oct 18:33:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: I love playing PUBG with Kiko on Wednesdays.  We even have an Emote dedicated to that stream - a chicken drummie with the no symbol around it - that designates us as Team NeverRoast, a fraternal order dedicated to failure in PlayerUnknown’s BATTLEGROUNDS. Kiko sent me a message yesterday night about Fortnite: Battle Royale, which is in many ways a clone of PUBG - a clone of its mechanics, but also apparently its success.  Before this, people mostly talked about how the product had interesting ideas but didn’t understand itself very well.  Now, it’s spoken of…

 News Post: Acquisitions Inc. Down Under! Posted: Thu, 12 Oct 22:01:00 PST (Gabe)
Gabe: I’m excited to finally announce that Acquisitions Incorporated is coming to PAX Australia this year! We’re switching things up for this adventure though and moving Ac Inc. to a “galaxy far far away”. That’s right, Omin Dran has opened an AI franchise in the Outer Rim and we’ll be playing Fantasy Flight’s Edge of the Empire. I’ll be taking on the roll of game master for this adventure and my players will be Jerry Holkins, Holly Conrad, Kris Straub, and making his first appearance at the AI table, Jesse Cox. In this universe Omin Dran is a smooth talking smuggler…
