Social Gaming Discussions and new IRC channel

October 2, 2011

As promised during our heated discussion in our introductory meeting about social gaming, I’m sharing some of the videos and articles that I had alluded to.

The first is a pair of videos (two parts) from Extra Credits. The first is fairly typical of Extra Credits (that is to say, excellent), and the second is somewhat more unorthodox compared to their usual fare; a little on the long side, but definitely worth watching.

Game Addiction, Ep.1Game Addiction, Ep.2

Another item is an article that I was recently pointed to by one of Glenn Fiedler‘s posts, named “who killed video games? (a ghost story)“. Please do yourself a favour and give it a read-through. (Yes, all six pages.)


I am also most excited to announce that we now have an IRC channel for the club, situated at irc.freenode.net on the #uwgdc channel. If you aren’t familiar with IRC, you might be able to glean the important details from a site such as this one.


Please also note that we will not be holding any events this coming week due to the impending Thanksgiving weekend. We will however be back in full force the following week with our infamous 48-Hour Game Jam from October 14th to 16th. Expect an informative post on the topic in the very near future.

Until next time,

    Note that Stephen means we will not be holding any events this coming weekend (not week). The GDCIE will still be happening both this Tuesday and the next.
