Brendon Chung, whose working on something called Quadrilateral Cowboy, is the focus of this chapter. We learn about Glitch City coming together, how Brendon want his games and a few nice words about LA.
I really like her ending of the chapter on LA, "...and I always thought I’d hate LA, I always thought I’d come away with a thin filthy layer of it on me; everyone outside of LA gripes that it is shallow and awful, that people value terrible things here. Perhaps I don’t hang out with the right people. I never hang out with the right people. Or maybe I always hang out with the right people."
Embed with Games is more of a thoughtful and very deep connected diary about Cara visiting friends who happen to be really into gaming. Sometime she gets some fascinating philosophy about what games should give other times it's her complaining about not being cool.
