This Week: Immersion!
To be immersed is to be a sponge -- to be soaked so much in a game's atmosphere that you can't help but drip with that same atmosphere yourself. Or something like that, only less gooey.
Wideo Wednesday - Mike shares yet another set of new and interesting game videos for you to watch!
The OMGeek Podcast (Wednesday) - Episode 7's topic is Why Immersion Matters. James, Jayvee, Jed, and Mike are joined by Mitch Ellis, a designer, developer, and (of course) gamer, in their discussion of peripherals and technologies that are meant to heighten in-game immersion.
Throwback Thursday - James writes about the part of his life that he spent in Shenmue for the Dreamcast.
Portable Perks (Friday) - Jed shares his experience with Guacamelee for the PS Vita! Ponchos! Sombreros! Burritos! Cacti! None of these are in the game! As far as I know.
