Like Christian, I am in the index to McKenzie Wark’s new book (hence named the GTIRC). So I bought it.
I wrote several pages of comment in response to the section of Gamer Theory 1.1 on Civilization 3. Mainly about what I understood to be the function of the ‘Fog of War’ in the production of contingency and the warding off of boredom. It got reduced down to a direct quotable quote in panel number 70 and reference to the fog of war in the text. Some of my ideas shall be expanded in a forthcoming gaming essay, if it gets done, which it shall (cause I am a machine!!!!).
Actually writing of ‘writing in response’… I have just finished my third journal article review for this week. Kick arse!!
Next dissertation chapter is also cranking. Wow, how much easier is it to write the third iteration? A ‘problematic of knowledge’ within enthusiast cultures… Yeah!
