A Life Well Wasted

It’s hot. The Word Cup is going on. There is not much new things to talk about. So instead of wasting my time and your time by straining myself to come up with something half-witted, I’d rater recommend other people’s work today. And what a piece of work it is. If you don’t know it, I recommend you to check out the podcast “A Life Well Wasted”.

A Life Well Wasted

I really adore the posters for the podcast made by Olly Moss. Too bad the sell out so quickly.

If you have only the time and patience to listen to one podcast on the web, make it this one. It’s a gaming podcast with mind-blowing production values. Each episode has a theme and contains amazinly well-edited interviews with all sorts of interesting people. It is a good example on how the internet can be home to some first-class journalism. It is also a good example of a very different kind of games jouralism – one that offers true, thoughtful insights instead of falling into the old routine of trite fanboyism and consumer advice.

Plus, each episode comes with a beautiful poster designed by Olly Moss. You can even buy the posters on the website but so far I missed each and every one. They always sell out in a blink of an eye.

So I recommend to go ahead and listen to the podcast, but don’t buy the posters so I can get one at least. ;)

P.S.: Yes, I it ended.

The Game Design Scrapbook is a second blog of group of three game designers from Germany. On our first blog, Game Design Reviews we describe some games we played and point out various interesting details. Unfortunately, we found out that we also need some place to collect quick and dirty ideas that pop into our minds. Hence, welcome to Game Design Scrapbook. You will encounter wild, random rantings. Many of then incoherent. Some of them maybe even in German. If you don't like it, you might enjoy Game Design Reviews more.
