Dice

quote [ A documentary about the original bad-boy of the dodecahedron himself. One should seriously not miss this piece. Another college documentary, this is. ]

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

What's On Steam

quote [ Every single Steam launch in bite-sized capsules. Updated every 10m. ]

It seems Theodore "90% of everything is crud" Sturgeon was entirely too optimistic.

Dazzling and Didactic Board Games from the 19th Century

All rise and no fall: how Civilization reinforces a dangerous myth

quote [ The idea of perpetual growth underpins much of our society, but games seem uniquely committed to it as a medium. It can be seen everywhere from the chase for highscores to the consumerist dreams of The Sims, who buy better things in order to enjoy better lives. Perhaps gaming?s roots in the toy and consumer electronics industries are one reason for the emphasis on growth; the constant hankering for bigger, faster, more. We climb the tech tree, we level up, we collect bigger and bigger weapons because of a widespread assumption that growth is an inherent good. ]

Starts with reviewing a game expansion, ends with contemplating over the side effects of games teaching growth and power as history lessons. Pretty reflective comment section, too.

The Lost Zelda Game | The Legend of Zelda: Ancient Stone Tablets [BS-Zelda]

quote [ Every Nintendo home console has had at least two Legend of Zelda games released during its life cycle, all but the Super Nintendo that is, but what if there IS another Super Nintendo Zelda game that was previously lost to time? ]

Played the LoZ series my entire childhood with the original on NES being the first video game I remember playing, to sometime in high school when Majora's Mask bored me. Link to the Past was always my favorite, and I thought I knew everything about it 'til I watched this. Had tried a couple BS games through emulation, but somehow never heard about this sequel. May have to download it and give it a whirl.
