Wow, has it almost been a week with no blog posts by yours truly? Well, the blog-quake happened at a good time for me, I had a big paper/presentation for grad school to do over the weekend, and presented Monday night. Now it's Wednesday morning Busan time, and I've got a few ideas for the blog. I'll likely just write them up today at work, and schedule them for release over the next week or so.
What's on my mind? First, a new idea of what really delineates old school/new school games. I know this is an old (and pointless, dead horse) debate, but Tim Brannan's "I play everything" banner, and ChicagoWiz's response to it (I assume) got me thinking about it again. And it's probably more of a 'what I like' blog anyway than anything definitive.
Second, a meta-topic about blogs. How does our presentation affect the way we're viewed? I know I'm not the most serious blogger, and having video game and cereal box art as my header shows that off right away. I'm gonna take a look around the blogosphere and give some opinions on which of the blogs I follow show off their tone.
Third, gaming related and potentially useful (so it'll happen before the other two above less useful posts) would be that I've got nearly 300 ideas for 'Saturday Night Special' encounters for the Megadungeon in my little pocket notebook. I started transferring them to my netbook on Monday when I had an hour or so after dinner before the presentation. When I've got them all typed up, I'll post them (warning, many are borrowed, laden with pop culture references, or just plain cheesy).
Fourth, I've got my four Gamma World (92) sample characters done as of last night. I'll post them up here as well. And man, I wish I could play all four of them!
