I do a lot of pen-and-paper role-playing. If you think that means I dress up all kinky… then no, get your mind out of the gutter and read this first. Normally, I meet up with friends, we sit around a table and play. With a pandemic on, this has become an interesting challenge.
I’m an avid gamer, D&D player, and I collect/paint wargaming miniatures. I also play the occasional board game.
If I review a specific game or setting, it’ll be in the reviews category, but general thoughts end up here.
I was at a neuromarketing presentation two weeks ago. When I saw some of the techniques used, I was immediately reminded of video games, specifically of a video Jim Sterling did on some of the practices in video game marketing. Then I read that the Dutch gambling authority is looking into possibly classifying loot boxes in video games as gambling, as is Belgium and Hawaii. Clearly, something is up.
