Every week we invite a special guest to talk with us about life, games, and belief. This week we’re joined by Michael Abbott, the man responsible for Brainy Gamer, one of the original blogs dedicated to thoughtful game criticism. Michael talks with us about how his Buddhist meditation practices relate to videogames, whether Vlambeer’s Nuclear Throne conveys peace or anger, and how Earthbound conveys genuine, heartbreaking childhood.
