WASD Gaming Culture Magazine

Postby Splork » 30 Aug 2017, 01:23

Hello, my fellow video game aficionados!

If like me you find Taling Simulator to be one of the best stream-formats out there, then I might just have a thing for you.

There is this German magazine called WASD (https://wasd-magazin.de/) which examines games not as a product, but as a cultural phenomenon. They've been releasing two issues a year for the last half decade, but so far only in German.

But now, for issue 12, they are planning an international release (with some translated and original English-language content) - and there's a Kickstarter for that:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1592403663/wasd-its-video-game-culture/

At 15 bucks it isn't exactly cheap, but you get about 200 pages of reviews/essays/interviews (they're calling themselves a 'bookazine') - and no paid advertisements.

So if you're intrigued by a more 'high-brow' games magazine, maybe give it a look. I have personally read several issues and can heartily recommend it.

PS: The book itself is also quite gorgeous btw. - have a look: https://wasd-magazin.de/static/kickstarter/#wasd-slim/page/1

It looks good. I'm sorry they didn't meet their total.

Interesting, thanks for sharing!
Years passed but netbet poker is always there. Only in a couple weeks and I'll play there. It's always fun with those games. Don't you think?
