Hosts: Scott, Todd, Timo
Congratulations to Lexx and Megan on the birth of Kara: The Chosen One!
Main topic: Chekhov’s Gun (Narrative Techniques) (22:50)
Chekov’s gun is a concept of design that applies very well to theatre, but less well to gaming. Nevertheless, it provides a framework that can be applied to gaming in an interesting way.
Todd: Don’t be whiny just because the story didn’t go where you thought it would go.
Scott: Ready Player One,
and How to Live Safely in a Science Fiction Universe
Timo: A week in to 2012, and I’m already hemorrhaging money.
