The final part of our New York series,we are joined by documentary filmmaker Kurt Vincent to discuss his upcoming movie, Arcade: The Last Night at Chinatown Fair. In addition to challenges Kurt has faced, his inspirations and how ideas about gaming culture can benefit from a perspective from just outside the hardcore culture, we also trade classic games and ruminate on how indie development is taking classic design and making it new.

I also want to thank everyone in NYC for being so gracious and showing AJBS amazing hospitality while letting us experience the city. We will be back next year.
