Mixed Media, Sunday 4 June 2017


  • Horizon: Zero Dawn: Amazing — one of my favourite games of recent years. It took over my whole life for about two months. Loved the action, loved the story.


  • 12 Monkeys season 1: Entertaining enough that I’ve continued with season 2.
  • Westworld season 1: Very good! Just as Jonathan Nolan’s show Person of Interest looked at the intersection of surveillance and AI, and tried to figure out what the endgame was, with Westworld he looks at video games and AI and speculates about where that could go. It made me think a lot about the kind of games I enjoy playing, and the paths I like taking through them.
  • Iron Fist season 1: Bad, for all the reasons you’ve probably already heard about.
