Perspective | Waluigi was robbed and humiliated by Nintendo, and his fans are furious

quote [ In the Nintendo universe, Waluigi is supposed to be as villainous as his cartoonish mustache and perpetual frown would suggest. But what made him that way? Perhaps it is Nintendo?s insistence on humiliating the character in front of his friends and the general public.
...
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! ]

These are the opinions I care about.

The Flash Games Postmortem

quote [ This talk will attempt to encapsulate the immense history of Flash games and how it has shaped the current game industry. This is as much a story about how Flash lived, rather than how Flash has (maybe) finally died. ]

Very interesting talk about creative and economic history of Flash games.

In other news ?

Working LEGO pinball machine built from 15,000 bricks

quote [ Pinball machines bring out the kid in all of us, hanging out in an arcade losing quarters and setting high scores. And the Classic Space era of LEGO sets appeals to so many of us who got our first LEGO sets back in the 70?s through 90?s. ]

90s CD-ROM games still have a lot to teach us

quote [ Many CD-ROM titles tapped into the existing creativity of gamers more deliberately, becoming like ?software toys,? a term Will Wright liked to use to describe Maxis? simulation games. ]

The little-known world of competitive Minesweeper

quote [ Because of its solitary nature, and the fact that each player is simply trying to improve his or her own score, it?s in a way a lot more similar to sports communities. There are tons of parallels between the community of competitive Rubik?s Cube solvers and the community of competitive Minesweeper board solvers, in that you?re performing an activity that seems like it?s difficult to an outsider, and eventually you learn a lot of patterns and you try to get really fast. ]

Like, reeaally old bookmarks.

Intersting little piece. More dice facts on this very site.
