Nordic Larp Talks

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Check out the video of the Nordic Larp Talks event in Stockholm recently. It’s almost two hours, but well worth your time if you’re interested in larp. It features many of the luminaries of the Nordic larp scene, such as Jaakko Stenros, Markus Montola, Johanna Koljonen, Emma Wieslander, Peter Munthe-Kaas and Martin Ericksson.

Tilt-Juhana: Metro 2033 & Bad Company 2

Viime aikoina Tiltin saitilla on julkaistu mun arvosteluni peleistä Bad Company 2, Metro 2033 ja Dragon Age Origins – Awakening.

Arvostelut voi tsekata myös Tiltin Web-TV:stä. Tilt-blogissani Parempia pelejä olen kirjoittanut videopelielokuvan klassikosta Tron ja siitä, mitä tarkoittaa kun peliä kutsutaan elokuvamaiseksi.

(This post is a series of links to Finnish-language articles I’ve written in my day job as the producer of the videogame tv show Tilt.tv.)
