Fiction Friday is a series where I talk about what I’ve been reading. Short Stories (and sometimes Novellas) are featured as in-between posts and the first Friday of the month will feature a new novel review. Today, I review Presumed Dead, an episodic serial by Rick Kennett, narrated by Marguerite Kenner. This is part one of a three-part series. Part two will debut on August 28th in lieu of a traditional post.

I’m changing things up for Fiction Friday and discussing a serialized story. This one is Presumed Dead, by Rick Kennett, narrated by Marguerite Kenner, as featured in Cast of Wonders. You can find Part One here. This is a self-published story from 2016 that Cast of Wonders is doing as an episodic serial. I don’t do too many of these (cause there isn’t a lot out there) so I figured, why not?

This is going to work a little differently since as of writing this, only three parts are out. I’m only going to do part 1 today, but this coming week, starting Tuesday, I’ll review part 2. I will finish it all off on Friday with another grand Fiction Friday special. Today, we’re delving into Chapters 1 and 2.

Talking About Tropes: The Problem With Playing Narrative Games (And How We Could Fix It)

Talking About Tropes is a series where I talk about storytelling tropes and my thoughts on them. I also talk about certain tropes related to my works and why I used them for that specific story. Today, I discuss how we can improve games that rely on narrative storytelling.

I love a good story. Video game stories are wonderful experiences and combined with in depth gameplay, can produce experiences that are unlike anything I’ve seen. However, they have a gigantic flaw. Imagine this scenario. Continue reading “Talking About Tropes: The Problem With Playing Narrative Games (And How We Could Fix It)”

Playing With Imagination: Thoughts on Batman: Arkham VR (And PSVR overall)

Playing With Imagination is a series where I talk about video game stories and plots. Many video games have incredible stories and are often overlooked in our society. Today, I talk about Batman: Arkham VR from Rocksteady. I also talk about the PlayStation VR and discuss the concept in general.

PSVR

I was going to talk about a Nintendo Switch game, but I haven’t gotten far enough into it to talk about it, so instead, I have a new system (kinda). Recently, I bit the bullet and got myself a Playstation VR. I had an interest in PSVR (and VR in general) for a while and I wasn’t sure which ones to get. There’s the Oculus Rift, the HTC Vive, and Samsung VR and whatnot, but I like a lot of Playstation stuff, so I have a VR headset to mess around with. Before we begin with the main game review, I figured I’d talk a bit about the VR itself and then move on to the game review itself.

So let’s jump into the many worlds of virtual reality.
