Alright, as promised today we’re kicking off the rejuvenated Game Club with a group play through of fan favorite of Beyond Good & Evil. If you’re interested in playing through a game along side a group of friends and then discussing the deeper meaning of the game and its plot, don’t forget to hop in.
We will be meeting weekly, on Monday’s at 9:30 p.m. Eastern, though this month with the holiday and E3, is going to have an odd schedule. I’m pretty sure it will be easy to get through the game in four meetings. So let’s plan on our first meeting to start on July 7 at 9:30 p.m. Eastern. Just come to the site and look for the Game Club Beyond Good & Evil Discussion post.
In this first assignment for Beyond Good & Evil you’ll need to complete the the Black Isle Mines section of the game. Make sure you don’t play past that point because I’d like us all to be on the same page, so to speak. After playing through the chunk, try to think up some interesting questions and discussion topics. I will have a list of my own, but I’m hoping we can all ask each other interesting things to discuss.
BG&E is a great game that does encourage a great deal of thought and social commentary. This has me thinking about digging my copy of the game out and playing through again. For full details, visit the post at Kotaku.
