What even is that

It is basically pro wrasslin's The Room, or an attempt to do an avant garde pro wrestling storyline.

Here is the version including all the build-up to the. . .umm. . . "match."

The best thing is that WWE was apparently threatened by this thing, and made their OWN experimental match. . . with higher production values. . . and pick-axes. . . and a horror movie approach instead of bizarre comedy.  O_o

I can even tell what character Tom is playing.  Hint, he's holding the gatling gun.

if that's base raiders, there better be an extended looting the corpses scene or stripping the copper wiring off the walls of a base scene.

If that ain't an omen, I don't know what is. Hope they didn't try to attack any Greek ships later that day.

I'm not going to claim this is *actually* one of the internet's best videos, but it's probably the best video on the internet inspired by an avatar on the RPPR forums:

So apparently, Flat Earth Theory was not crazy enough for someone. Apparently, there are also no forests on flat earth:

! No longer available


Fo those of you who don't have a spare hour and a half of your lives that you don't want, the basic premise is that there used to be GIGANTIC SILICON TREES. They were all destroyed by a NUCLEAR WAR in between 1780 and 1815. Every stone on earth used to be a living part of a tree. Mesas? They are GIANT STUMPS.

This is proved by the polar icecaps.

There is a decent lecture on post apocalyptic video games/worlds with some discussion of the primary literature they are based on (the Road, Metro) here:
! No longer available


This lecture was created by Dan Pinchbeck of The Chinese Room, who hasn't made any post-apocalyptic games; and if you don't like Dear Esther and other walking simulators, arguably hasn't made many games at all.  However his analysis of isolation, negative space, and how rewards and pacing work in survival games are worth while.  There is a boring part for more than 5 minutes after he finishes gushing about Day Z/beans that lasts until he reaches the next section.

Pinchbeck states one of the primary elements of post apocalyptic (video) games is the lone wanderer.  He also suggests a game designer can get away with only building a limited economy because the complexity of the previous economy cannot be supported in the post-apocalyptic world. 

While I was listening to this argument I was thinking that Red Markets is a direct rejection of this tenant. Caleb makes it very clear that without constant movement of goods (by scavenging, repairing and creating) a post-apocalyptic small community will die.   Perhaps Pinchbeck would consider Red Markets an early post-post-apocalyptic world, because communities still exist and the DHQS is turning it's colonial attention to the west for expansion.  Or Pinchbeck's focus on the lone videogame wanderer is the lens through which he views post apocalypse fiction. Or he's just wrong.

Anyway mostly interesting talk. Some useful points.
