Although we are separated by great distances it is nice to be back in your lives, internet friends, no matter how or when you come across this edition of Blogs of the Round Table. ‘Time’ is something we implicitly care a lot about here at Critical Distance: archiving what people write about games (a medium often characterized by it future-orientation) on the internet (a medium that often erases the impact of time) is a project that frequently has us double- or triple-checking dates and bolstering our archives however we can.
For me personally, ‘time’ has been tough to manage. Probably the clearest evidence of that has been July’s BoRT was open only for half a month instead of the regular 30(ish) day submission window. However, looking back over the past month(ish) there have been a number of pieces discussing the importance of time in games and play that I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I did.
Well that’s about as much time as I have for you this month. Keep an eye out for our return to the regular schedule when Taylor Hidalgo tags in for July’s topic.
