Hey All, I just finished splicing out the crap portions of the audio recording of Iris’ talk that happened way back in August. You may be thinking, “Ok, that’s great Jon, but that talk is also really freaking old. Where are all the recordings of more recent talks?”

Until then, feast your ears on the following audio tracks. The first one is an extended conversation about graphics and how they connect (or don’t) to the emotions that are felt while playing games, and whether or not graphics help immerse us in games. We finish up that recording with some talk of Super Meat Boy. Some of it is really funny if you’ve ever played the game. The second file is the actual talk that Iris gave about the existential gamer and Minecraft. Enjoy.
This is before the talk:
