Hello all - while there is much to talk about from Gamescom (more than E3, methinks), you will have to wait a week to get the skinny.   Our Viking Lord Adams has taken ill and will not be available for musing this evening. We are always sad when we can not raise a glass with you...but we will be back next week, Grog in hand!

Hope you get well soon Brent. Look in the bright side, you can play games to help you feel better it always works for me.

Totally agree with Alex. Nothing cures the (un)common cold like binge gaming. That or rest. Get well soon.

Laughter is the best medicine, which is why Brent should watch Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance

Hi Axeheads,

At the request of CountDrac, I have posted my first game analysis, which I wrote for my Game History class. This is a design paper analyzing Sonic the Hedgehog 2, my favorite platformer of my childhood, using the Modes, Goals, and Dynamics model. Please enjoy, and I'll follow up any questions. I plan to write a similar Dark Souls paper this week.
