Getting Schooled by the Tutorial

by G. Christopher Williams

29 February 2016

Read a book, watch a movie, look at a painting, most artistic mediums assume you already know how to understand them. This week we discuss how games always have something to teach us as players.

Unfortunately, thanks to a scheduling snafu, we don’t have a new episode for you this week. We will be back with an all new episode next week, though, talking about last year’s blockbuster Metal Gear Solid V.

In the meantime, we will try to tide you over with something from our back catalog, an episode concerning that ever present video game standard, the tutorial.
This episode includes regular Moving Pixels podcast contributors, G. Christopher Williams and nick Dinicola, and our much missed former colleague, the always erudite, Kris Ligman.

This podcast is also available via Soundcloud.
