How id built Wolfenstein 3D using Commander Keen tech

quote [ After the graphic assets were generated, a tool (IGRAB) packed all ILBMs together in an archive and generated a C header file with asset IDs. The engine references an asset directly by using these IDs. ]

Somehow the article doesn't explain the Commander Keen reference (which was, to my knowledge, using the same level editor, only top-down)

Move over loot boxes, surprise mechanics are the ethical and fun new way to monetize gambling addicts

quote [ Representatives from EA and Epic Games spoke in front of a UK parliamentary panel. They were there to defend the game industry against charges of addictive game mechanics and encouragement of gambling via loot boxes. One of those representatives took issue with the basic premise that randomized item purchases should be labeled as "loot boxes" in the first place.

"That is what we look at as 'surprise mechanics,'" EA Legal and Government Affairs VP Kerry Hopkins told the panel. These surprise mechanics are "quite ethical and fun [and] enjoyable to people... We think it is like many other products that people enjoy in a very healthy way. They like the element of surprise." ]

A rose by any other name would still cost you 200 EA Fun Bucks™

The Speedrunner Who Wasn?t: How a Community Dealt with an Elaborate Cheater

quote [ His speedrun, a full eight minutes under the previous record, was met with suspicion, leading to the unprecedented formation of an investigatory council, the expunging of Ryan?s runs, and weeks of vitriolic back-and-forth. On one side, a community trying to protect the integrity of their game. On the other, a person claiming they were targeted for the great crime of having good luck.

The whole time, though, Ryan knew the truth: He was a cheater. There was no world record. ]

Cheaters never win. It is known.
