Weekly Update: The Wheel of Fortune
August 9, 2011 - Readings
This week at Robot Geek, I discuss my failure to get laid in Persona 3 and what it says about narrative design in Game Stories and Fortunetelling. This was a fun one that I’ve been meaning to write for a while. I’m kind of a huge Tarot card nerd, and I’ve always been fascinated with how and why fortunetelling works. (In the entirely down-to-earth sense of how it works as a social behavior, not, y’know, the wacky stuff.)
Here’s what I’ve been reading this week!
I Won’t Do What You Tell Me. My Robot Geek colleague Fraser Elliott deals with the pitfalls of quota systems over at his new personal blog, The Vibrant Popular.
