Posted by on Nov 22, 2013 in Musing, Promotion, Video Games | No Comments

This Uncharted PS4 Trailer reveals that a new installment of the hit series is coming to the new PlayStation. Good. I came this close to shelling out for a Vita just to play Uncharted: Golden Abyss. (I settled for watching the cinematics on YouTube.) Here’s the thing about this trailer and me: It’s possible that Uncharted may […]

Just a quick update for those of you who have noticed that Gameplaywright’s blog has left fallow for months: Things are afoot here at GPW but we’ve shifted from a short-term view to a long-term view for a while. We’re brewing up new books, for that long run, and the time for such thoughts and […]

Writer and editor James Lowder, one of the many talented contributors to The Bones: Us and Our Dice, kindly gave us a few copies of the superhero anthology he mentions in his Bones essay. We thought we’d pass them on to you, dear readers. At first, I thought I’d offer them to the next few […]

The Bones Blog Carnival Begins

Posted by on Jun 1, 2010 in Dice, Fan Culture, Promotion, Writing | No Comments

With The Bones coming out this month, in both special and regular editions, we thought it would be a good and fun idea to promote some more conversation about dice and randomness and how we play with both.
