Early on in our relationship, I took my wife to a Star WarsCelebration convention (I know, right? I’m a smooth operator).
Anyway, she had never been to such a thing and I wasn’t sure what she would think. But as she wandered around the cosplaying Jedis and homemade droids she got happy tears, as she calls them. Where some people see nothing but nerds, she saw people who could be themselves and revel in the community of something they love.
Look. There was a lot of videogame news this week. Again. So we have a lot to cover.
But first, a story.
My first job out of college was at a technology PR firm. I hated it. I was basically a telemarketer. But! I am forever grateful for it because one of my first clients was a then up-and-coming videogame company called Bethesda Softworks.
