Oh dear, now I'm wanting to start a blog for video game pontification. I'm sure it'll pass... who needs a blog when you have mastodon? :)

I think my favorite part is how the game's reward structure is also the fun part of the game. I don't feel like I'm being encouraged to do something I don't want to do in order to do something I want to do.

Something that's always kind of bugged me about gamedev stuff on bird website is like...

Any dev above a certain notoriety doesn't really talk about their development anymore. It's more of the hot takes variety, or little bite size clips to show off to try to grab attention.

Nobody talks about the nuts and bolts of development because it's over the heads of most people; or worse attracts the sort of player who's looking to pick a fight because they don't understand how design works.

Put in my request to have them look at my priority access for . Maybe they'll have draft when I get in? :)

Never got around to posting my RIX prerelease deck and pool. First time doing an Izzet deck, so even though I lost a lot, I think I learned how to play it properly? Moreso than before?
