NERDGEIST

Story Writing for Games was a free panel event held at CCA Theatre on Monday 24 February as part of the Glasgow Film Festival

Did you ever wonder what is it like to write for video games? How can we make best use of the video game medium to tell our stories? And how do we do it well? Rab Florence was the moderator at the panel event. He spoke to some of the best in the field about their experiences with their own brilliant games, and where we can expect video game storytelling to go in the future.

Adroid is Social

In this post, I just want to quickly discuss how watching videos online is changing drastically almost every day of our lives. It’s now relevant that we, as a mass society, use the internet and all of it’s tools to communicate and share information, stories, and entertainment pieces. Regarded as one of the most widely used Social Media websites and the world’s second largest search engine (next to Google), YouTube is a place where almost anyone can upload a video file for the world to see, or just the user’s friends depending on the privacy setting (that’s not the point of this post). 

YouTube, with it’s simplistic interface and ease of use, is home to many videos and “powerhouse categories” such as Comedy, Music, and Informational videos. Another one of those “powerhouse categories”, or categories that draw many viewers and content creators, is the gaming and gameplay category. “Let’s Players”…

February 11th, 2014 will see the North American release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, the third entry in the Final Fantasy XIII saga. I have tried very hard to stay away from any media regarding this game because I want it to be a fresh play. It has not been easy especially since I saw the photo below:

 

 

 

As a Final Fantasy VII nutjob, this brought tears to my eyes and sent my heart racing. Lightning is wearing the costume of Midgar’s flower girl, Aerith Gainsborough. Since stumbling upon this photo my excitement for this game has quadrupled.  Thankfully, I was able to roll my PTO over from last year so I will be taking a few days off to play this.

Are you killing your fandom?

Okay finally getting around to this. Thanks to more and more news articles coming out, coupled with complications in real life I’ve been putting it back for far too long. Now here it is, a collection of stories centered on the Great Console War of 2014. Let the carnage reign! (NOTE: This blog in no way advocated the use of carnage in anyway. It is just an expression in this case meaning let’s get started. It’s called a segway people.)

Our first article comes from Detroit, where Spider Man tried to take an X-box one. Two sisters were leaving a Meijer with a recently acquired system when a man in a Spiderman hoodie approached them and demanded the system. The sisters questioned the friendly neighborhood Spider Thief on if he was serious long enough for other shoppers to take notice and causing him to make a break for it…
