The Walking Dead has garnered some Game of the Year honors, now. Conoisseurs among my acquaintance, however, are giving some significant pushback, and that’s grist for the humanities mill! Jorge Albor and Scott Juster of the EXP blog and podcast, who have been all over this game, and who are in general simply excellent conversationalists, will be joining us–so you should consider joining us too! Any resulting crowd-control problems will be ably handled by Roger’s heavy-handed shushing on the front end and Dan’s ginsu-esque editing on the back.
This will be a spoiler-heavy affair, and I’m going to try to spend some time on one particular incident in Episode 4: is it just a smelly pile of dirt that you have to click on, or is it pathos?
We’ll meet on Thursday, 10 January at 10:00 pm EDT / 7:00 pm PDT (note the later start!). Conversation will be on the VGHVI mumble server, leave a comment if you need connection info and we’ll send it to you.
