The McElroy brothers “play” Elegy for a Dead World

A couple weeks ago, Griffin and Justin McElroy recorded a video while “playing” Elegy for a Dead World. The game lets you float through a backdrop of a desolate, alien world and provides writing prompts. You can complete the prompts and publish your story as well as view others’ stories. I don’t think anything I’d ever be able to write could compare to their work though! Check it out on Polygon.

Nothing memorable from the last day of E3

You’d think there’d still be a bit of news that caught my eye on the last day, but I only marked one interesting article from all the coverage I saw.

Xbox One’s new Achievements system explained, time-based Challenges don’t reward Gamerscore, Griffin McElroy, Polygon, 6/13/13.

I think what Microsoft (and by extension Griffin’s article) was trying to explain in too many words is that the Xbox One will have Feats of Strength like Blizzard games do. Terrific! These are especially fun.

Nothing else stands out in my memory sadly.
