By |2020-09-07T21:28:10+00:00September 7th, 2020|Categories: Game Club Letters, Video Games|Tags: , , |

Welcome to Game Club, where Joanna Price and myself exchange letters about a game we’ve jointly played. This time, we’re discussing Spycraft: The Great Game, an unusual 1996 adventure game from Activision. This post will be updated with additional letters as they’re posted.

Dear Joanna,

I am delighted to resume our game club letters, however temporary […]

Notes on every game I played in 2019

By |2020-05-25T23:17:29+00:00May 25th, 2020|Categories: Video Games|Tags: , , |

For the eighth year in a row, I’m published a roundup of every game I played in the past year. As you can see, I completely failed to accomplish last year’s promise of doing this quarterly, hence the massive block of text below. Hopefully I can break it up more in 2020, but given that […]

By |2020-04-03T00:46:31+00:00March 21st, 2020|Categories: Lists, Video Games|Tags: , |

With a lot of people trapped at home due to the ongoing pandemic, there’s a great need for cheap entertainment. Many generous game developers are responding to this with free or pay-what-you-want sales of their games. In addition, there’s a huge amount of always-free games you can play during this time.

I’ll be updating this post as […]

Nostalgia (Episode 9)

By |2019-12-20T23:47:34+00:00December 20th, 2019|Categories: Podcast|Tags: |

In this episode, Joanna & Dylan spectacularly fail at recording a tight, 30-minute podcast, and instead spend 80 minutes delving into the nature of nostalgia, focusing on nostalgic media like My Neighbor Totoro, Stardew Valley, and Millennium Blades.

Analogous to All Thresholds (Episode 8)

By |2019-07-23T17:41:25+00:00July 23rd, 2019|Categories: Podcast|Tags: |

The podcast is dead, long live the podcast. This is the final long-form episode of A Possibility of Opinions, but fret not, as we’ll continue in a new format with shorter episodes breaking from our standard format (with the same title, so stay subscribed!)

In this long-awaited psuedo-finale, our hosts catch up on a many-month backlog of […]

A Totally Valid Choice (Episode 6)

The revelations from Episode 6 include the shocking truth behind Joshua Chapman’s Star Trek zines, the title of Dylan’s favorite game of 2018, and the reason why Joanna is endeavoring to exercise for the first time in her life. The hosts take a rare detour into contemporary national politics, and Joanna calls Dylan a dummy (a […]

Notes on Every Game I Played in 2018

By |2019-08-31T18:57:27+00:00February 18th, 2019|Categories: Video Games|

For the seventh year in a row, I’m published a roundup of every game I played in the past year. Last year, I experimented with going beyond the “one sentence” format; I felt it had become overly constraining, particularly since this has been my only substantial piece of game writing for the last few years (not […]

It’s 2019, and that means it’s time for a new year of inappropriate jokes, adorable friendship, and rambling about media. In this special vacation episode – recorded on site in Sacramento – Joanna & Dylan discuss fabulous zines, the world’s greatest obituary, and an email from Dylan’s mom. Joanna analyzes Dylan’s taste in music, and Dylan […]

He Also Has A Normal Hand (Episode 4)

By |2019-01-01T18:17:57+00:00January 1st, 2019|Categories: Podcast|

In the final episode of 2018,  our hosts recount the series of unfortunate events that delayed this episode, and discuss what constitutes “good acting” in films. Dylan talks about a hyper-nerdy competition he runs, and gives a retrospective of Thief: The Dark Project on its 20th anniversary. Joanna discusses a lovely book about writing from Phillip […]
