While I’m increasingly ambivalent about Google+ overall, I’m completely positive on gaming via Hangouts. Not only have I been playing my Weird Adventures game there, I’ve gotten a chance to play with some other bloggers in their games.
Twice now, Horvendile Early, gambler and pistoleer, has ventured forth into the wilds of Erik’s Wampus Country. Orwendill, fighter and artist (of tasteful nudes) has had one outing with that dubious coterie, the Nefarious Nine, in Chris Kutalik’s Hill Cantons. Tonight, an as yet unnamed Chaos-tainted soldier from a grim future is going to kill things as a part of a Warband courtesy of Mike Davison.
I’m also playing in Scott’s (he of the Huge Ruined Pile) strict textualist AD&D game, though that’s play by post via G+.
The gaming itself is great, after so much writing about gaming, but what I may like even more is getting to put a face and voice to all those posts I’ve read. I suppose that sort of connecting with folks in a shared hobby is exactly the sort of stuff social media is suppose to for.
That and pictures of cute animals with humorous captions.
