p.s. Hey. ** David, Hi. Yeah, it wasn’t bad. Folkestone is a lovely name for somewhere. Does it live up to his excellent syllables? Which Greek island? Nice. Sun for days. Bring sunscreen. ** Dominik, Hi!!!! It’s a very rare video game that has really good dialogues. Even great games fall short in the ‘talking’ parts. It’s a genre ripe for experimental literary intervention. Aw, thanks for that love. I’m rooting for him. Love looking everywhere for you until he finds you, G. ** _Black_Acrylic, Well, yes, it’s quite a healthy genre, as you can see. Sort of like horror movies, and similarly hit or miss on the quality front, but always somehow very doable. ** Misanthrope, A good horror video game could be just the thing to make a man out of you. David continues his reality show stardom without the show part. I have a vague memory of that encounter with the girl and her standoffish boyfriend, huh. Well, for one thing, I seem to have successfully clued the children into recognising a pedo when they see one. Ha ha. ** Sypha, Hi. I wondered if you knew any of those games. I don’t know the ones you’ve played other than, obviously, ‘Eternal Darkness’, the genre’s crown jewel. Dare I seek out that SCP game? Hm. ** Alexandrine Ogundimu, Hey! Thanks for coming in here. Great pleasure to see you. You’re in school now, right? How is that, if I’m right? Haven’t actually played all those games (yet), but I did play F.E.A.R, and I’m with you about it. I don’t know ‘Condemned: Criminal Origins’ but your rec will have me looking for it today. Ooh. Thank you, thank you. Take care! ** David Ehrenstein, Thank you for the Forster link. I’ll head over there. ** T, Hi, T. I love games. I haven’t played in a horribly long time due to being afraid of being sucked into that ‘void’, but I’ve learned a lot as a writer from games about how to use narrative in a spatial way or something. Jeez, you’re coming here today? Wow. It’s overcast and a bit chilly, as you will soon find out if you haven’t. Let me know when you’ll be in Paris proper, and let’s meet up. I’ll wish you a magic day in which all your luggage shrinks until you can fit them all into one tiny little bag like they’re Pop Rocks. xo. ** politekid, Howdy, Oscar! Great to see you, pal! Happiest Halloween build-up back to you! Oh, I certainly don’t mind your list at all, whatsoever, and au contraire. Damn, a lot to investigate, and here I am with a bunch of hours to fill/kill this morning. That whole bunch sounds super exciting. Thank you lot for the effort and the share. It won’t go to waste, I assure you. I’m good. I’m crunching on stuff too, albeit with a strange bunch of free, or, well, formerly free hours this morning. I hope your work and editing deserve you. Talk to you soon, I hope. ** Bill, Right? Ha, it’s true that the slaves I tend to focus on are not generally the gruff voiced queen types who see Folsom as a kind of PNP-infused Oz. I need to get the new Evenson, thanks for reminding me. Cool. Bon today! ** Right. Today I give a little glimpse of our species’ collective future. Sorry about that. See you tomorrow.
