The Finisher

The folks at LoadingReadyRun are headed into Hour 131 of the Desert Bus for Hope 2018 over at twitch.tv/desertbus. Over the past nine years, the gang has (as of about 45 minutes ago) raised 5 million dollars for Child’s Play, a charity that donates toys, games and funds to children’s hospitals all over the world. The more money raised the longer the team has to keep playing Desert Bus, a minigame from Penn & Teller’s mercifully unreleased Sega CD Smoke and Mirrors. And while the cult classic game is widely considered to be the worst game ever made, I think maybe we can do better… or worse. So if you were hired to make the next best worst game ever, what would you make?

The Finisher

Game Director of Magic Arena Chris Clay announced *today* that Direct Challenges are coming to Arena November 15. That means that you’ll be able to challenge people directly, which means actual factual friends lists are soon to follow. Now I’m a fan of social mediums as much as the next guy, but I need another list of suggested friends like I need another LinkedIn request. But it’s coming, so in addition to having people like, tweet, favorite, share, and subscribe, now we’ll add Arena friends to the list, but how else can Magic add more to the gathering?

The Finisher

Tonight is All Hallow’s Eve, The Devil’s Day, Dia de los Muertos, Samhain, Hallow Tide… better known as Halloween. A time to celebrate fun-sized candy, pumpkin spice everything, and especially costumes. I’ve always liked costume parties and cosplay and masks, because everyone becomes themselves when they are dressed up safe as someone else. So on this, the only day of the year where it’s socially acceptable to show up at your day job as a clown unless your day job is as an actual clown, what Magic celebrity would you dress up as on the most wonderful night of fright of the year?
