The Brainy Gamer launches

I'm so happy to begin this project. Thanks for taking the time to check me out.

The Brainy Gamer is a podcast and blog devoted to thoughtful conversation about video games. I hope to provide a useful link between the game scholar and the game player. To that end, the blog will highlight interesting news, articles, books, interviews, videos and other resources that offer intelligent and lively consideration of gaming.

The podcast will focus more directly on analysis and discussion of specific games. I will, of course, discuss genres, designers, platforms, etc., but my main target will always be the games. 

I hope you enjoy The Brainy Gamer.
