quote [ From board games to stunted game systems, the many attempts to turn VHS into a platform for games ran into a big problem: There was only one way forward. ]

IndieGames: A Farewell, But A Hello At IndieGamesPlus.com!

quote [ BTW, the entire IndieGames.com domain will redirect to IndieGamesPlus sometime in the next few days, so we'll get the benefit of all that historical site traffic ]

13-year-old blog w/ pretty good coverage leaves GDC brand and asks for moderate funding while having migrated all reviews up to the very first one. Also, excuse the latent retro posting lately.

SensibleEndowment Playing Quiplash 2 - YouTube Gaming

quote [ It's like cards against humanity, but online. Let's give it a shot. ]

I'm playing around with streaming a game I picked up off of Humble Bundle[ref link :P] a couple weeks ago. It's like cards against humanity. You'll need One browser (computer?) to view the stream and another (phone?) to use as a controller for the game. I'll start the game once I have couple people in there. Shout out in the post comments if you're in. #LikeCommentSendNudes

The Twenty-Five-Year Journey of Magic: The Gathering

quote [ The people who make up gaming communities were once seen as sun-shunning nerds who were pushed aside by the rest of society. Now their world is everyone?s world. ]

I never got into Magic the way that some friends embraced it. Fun game though and the history makes me want to go and explore it further. (full text in extended)

The Ballad of Yo! Noid

quote [ In the ?80s and ?90s, advertisers got the idea to market products to kids through video games. The games aren?t half-bad (mostly), but they?re still ads. ]

I don't avoid the noid, I destroyed the noid

DIY transcendence with Timothy Leary?s Mind Mirror

quote [ Plenty of Leary?s unfinished games have been unearthed, but only Mind Mirror was ever completed. His digital projects included a choose-your-own-adventure adaptation of William Gibson?s cyberpunk epic called Neuromancer: Mind Movie. Due to feature music from Devo, and co-authored by William S Burroughs, it was never fully realised. ]

Sounds interesting enough. This has a supposedly witty writing style.

The great video game exodus

quote [ ?Creating a new world, a new dimension, a history that people are going to get invested in is absolutely the best feeling in the world,? he says. ?But the environment for making games is worse than ever. There?s too much ego, too low salaries, too much extended overtime, and pettiness in general.? ]

Nicely written piece by Simon Parkin, author of Death by Videogame. See also interviews on working conditions.

Absolutely Brilliant!

quote [ The British company Codemasters, best known for the Game Genie, didn?t let a pesky lack of license get in the way of creating some of the NES? best games. ]

You couldn't beat me with a Game Genie
