Neal Stephenson will be at the Tattered Cover LoDo tonight to talk about video games, farming gold and his new book, Reamde. But first, he talked with Thorin Klosowski for an extensive Q&A, which prompted this response from Rick:
I concur in re: Cheating... Oddly, I spent years only letting my young son go look up cheats or walkthroughs (in the short amount of gaming time he had per week) after he beat the game. It seems incredibly sad to spend hard-earned money on a game and then ruin it for yourself. Go, Neal, go!
