Intelligame Podcast 002 – Community w/ Dylan Higgins
Episode 002 (I haven’t decided if it’s pronounced “two” or “double-oh-two” just yet) revolves around community and comes to you from the overcast goodness of Seattle, Washington at PAX West. The good ship IGPC is setting sail again, everyone! I’ve had some difficulties with the website and podcast uploads, but now this just means that you have multiple ways to skin the cat. For those who didn’t catch it earlier, the Intelligame Podcast is now on Soundcloud! Head on over to Intelligame’s Soundcloud for both episodes outfitted with sound-y, cloudy goodness.
Episode 002 (I haven’t decided if it’s pronounced “two” or “double-oh-two” just yet) revolves around community and comes to you from the overcast goodness of Seattle, Washington. Recorded at PAX West, this week’s interview is with Dylan Higgins, a friend who works at a local arcade, Ground Kontrol. We talk games, and one game in particular: Killer Queen. It’s a 5v5 arcade game that’s built quite the group of players in Portland, and we talk about the scene’s development. They’ve got a fundraiser going to help fly them out to Austin, TX; if you want to help out, check the link in the references! We also talk pinball, which is a long-time favorite, and Dylan calls out his Intelligame.
In other content, we have a Director’s Cut of The People of PAX West. Thinking about just the sheer number of people at PAX is an intimidating force in itself, but it’s also interesting to think about each of those people as individuals who’ve made a choice to delve just a little bit deeper into the world of gaming and whatnot. I’ve also called out a community-based Intelligame of the Week. It’s one most of the readership has likely played already (or could be playing right now), but it’s still worth calling a bit of attention to.
