  • The Iron Giant Returns to Theaters
    For a limited-time this fall, we’ll be able to enjoy one of the best animated films on the big screen. Also Vin Diesel’s best role. This return is being done to celebrate the release of the film on BD.
  • Japan Expo and Economics
    Really this is an article about Japanese business taking better advantage of “Cool Japan,” but the more interesting info is about France’s anime fans and Japan Expo which draws more than 200,000 people.

  • Trouble with the Curve
    Video game designers have long since studied the proper way to ramp to a difficulty curve with game mechanics but social aspects in multiplayer online games need that same guiding hand.

    • The Start of the Mater: An introduction to why the initial introduction to a game’s social mechanisms are so important.
    • Stuck in the Middle with You: Now that the player is testing the waters with social play how to ramp them into deeper play.
    • Endgame: How to get players involved with the high levels of social mechanisms.
  • The Great Chicago Fire + The LA Riots
    Justinian and Theodora deal with the Nika riots. A population out of control and the Empress that stood against the chaos.
  • The Dream is Real
    I have to celebrate the licensing of the Legend of the Galactic Heroes anime and novels with two Space Opera Satellite episodes.

    • Space Orgy!:  The start of main LotGH rewatch with the first 6 episodes of the main OVA series.
    • Miracle Yang: All the crazy news about LotGH licenses and episodes 7 through 13 on top of that.
  • The Old People Go To AnimeNEXT
    Its the jaded guest podcast for All Geeks Considered when they discuss AnimeNEXT 2015. Kris Naudus and Scott Spaziani talk about their efforts to beat the heat and still have a good time.
