Vlog Ep. 190: Your Personal Legacy


This episode of #BaduyPride was all about one's personal legacy, a question that has been weighing heavily on our minds given a number of friends who have passed well before their time. We've all experienced more loss than usual as of late, and we probably need to steel ourselves for possibly more. 

Legacy has a lot of possible meanings and we did our best to talk about its many facets in this episode. We started with the physical stuff but went on at length to talk about the impact we have on other people whether we like it or not. It was a rather lofty discussion with its heavy moments, but it still felt important for us to talk about it, especially given recent personal events.

Vlog Ep. 189: The Maxis Sim Games


This episode of #BaduyPride was all about the different Sim games originally created by Maxis, which is now a part of Electronic Arts. This one company has made quite an impact on the gaming world and pretty much popularized the simulation game genre with their unique approach to things. 

It was nice to go through the gaming history of this company, particularly given how many of those games I had played growing up. I was sure that even Tobie must have played games like SimAnt, but I guess that really was more of a niche experience. But a least well all enjoyed unique explorations like Spore and maybe we'll try diving back into The Sims sometime.

Vlog Ep. 188: Coffee, Kopi, Kape, et al


This episode of #BaduyPride was all about coffee in all of its glorious forms! And I guess we're starting to codify Tuesdays as "chews-days" where we celebrate different food topics, and this one had us talking about the blessed java creation. We tried a little history both academic and personal and then it was sort of anything goes from that point.

Today's episode felt a lot closer to our "normal", which was nice. And I know a large part of that involves all our friends and other viewers who participated in the conversation and really gave us a lot to think about and explore. We spent more time searching for things online than expected for this coffee episode, but no regrets for the resulting conversation.

Vlog Ep. 187: Dracula's Feast


After a short break, we decided to resume our #BaduyPride episodes this week and kicked off Monday with a game very dear to our hearts, especially now. Dracula's Feast is a (possibly) lesser-known social deduction party game created by Peter C. Hayward. It's the sort of party game that needs a minimum of four players but can safely support up to 8 players as needed.

It was a little bittersweet to cover this game today given the person who brought the game to our attention is no longer with us. But the best thing we could do is to celebrate a great game and sharing the joy with everyone in the hopes that more people decide to get a copy for themselves. What else are geeks to do, right?
