I just want to note that the above date is a lie, a relic left over from the 2007 run. The comic will continue according to the established pace.
The original plan was for this campaign to be three acts:
I. It Begins
II. It Gets Worse
III. It Ends Badly
We broke from this later. What I’d wanted to do was complete this story, and then move on to some completely different genre with the same characters. Maybe they’d play Star Wars. Or a vampire game. (Which would be a goldmine now that Twilight has come out and created a rift in Vampire fandom.) What we were looking forward to was showing the same characters in different styles and settings. Some campaigns would end early, or simply grind to a halt at some player / GM impass.
But I thought the series should start with a proper three-act arc.
See you on Monday.
What is Vulkan?
There's a new graphics API in town. What does that mean, and why do we need it?
Video Compression Gone Wrong
How does image compression work, and why does it create those ugly spots all over some videos and not others?
The plot of this game isn't just dumb, it's actively hostile to the player. This game hates you and thinks you are stupid.
Quakecon 2012 Annotated
An interesting but technically dense talk about gaming technology. I translate it for the non-coders.
PC Hardware is Toast
This is why shopping for graphics cards is so stupid and miserable.
