Gaming Session: Demon’s Souls, 31 May 2012

So Atlus is keeping the servers open! Instead of mourning the end of the run of, and getting a fair measure of, a multi-player experience that critics often characterize as “ground-breaking,” we get to try to answer the interesting question “Was declaring that they would be shutting the servers down a gimmick?”

That’s of course because our “gaming sessions” don’t have to be all scholastic. So come along, and maybe “Was it a gimmick?” will become “What is a gimmick?” or “How do we describe what happens to a gamespace when the game’s designers shear it of affordances?”

We’ll be talking on Skype this week; if you don’t think I’ve got your Skype info, leave a comment and I’ll e-mail you.

We’re playing at the usual time: Thursday 5/31 at 9:30 EDT / 6:30 PDT, hope to see you there!
