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.

Sex, Pong, And Pioneers: What Atari Was Really Like, According To Women Who Were There

quote [ Back in 1973, Steve Miller Band?s ?The Joker? was blaring from the PA in a California warehouse as two dozen women in flared jeans assembled Pong circuit boards. The smell of corned beef and marijuana wafted down the manufacturing line. Orders for Atari?s landmark table tennis video game were still pouring in on the crisp October day when Elaine Shirley first giddily entered the warehouse to join the all-woman crew of Pong cabinet-stuffers. ]

Seems relevant to your interests.

Nolan Bushnell was supposed to receive an award for developing Pong and kicking off the whole video game market, but the award has been retracted due to a #NotNolan campaign based on comments he made about the freewheeling days at Atari in the early 70's.

Punching Nazis

quote [ Why are Nazis so popular as enemies? The obvious answer is 'because they murdered innocent people on an industrial scale', but there isn't really any correlation between the part someone played in history, and how often they show up in video games.

[?] You can't punch an ideology to death. [?] This is literally why we have video games: if we could easily make bad things go away in the real world by punching them, we'd all be out there doing that, right now. ]

More thoughtful games journalism.

The Story of Tetris

quote [ In 1984, during the Cold War, a Russian programmer named Alexey Pajitnov created something special: A puzzle game called Tetris. It soon gained a cult following within the Soviet Union. A battle for the rights to publish Tetris erupted when the game crossed the Iron Curtain. ]

My parents used to stay up all night beating each other scores.

Where do downloadable games go when they die?

quote [ But considering that digital games change so much over time, with content added, tweaked and taken away, perhaps it's impossible to preserve such games in any meaningful way. After all, which version of the game do you preserve? Perhaps it's better to think of video game history in a similar way to the study of history as a whole - as a sequence of documents, interpretations and recollections that capture moments in time, all in the context of the events of the day. ]

More on media conservation and the death of portals.

Game Tourism ? tool-assisted meandering

quote [ Game Tourism is playing a game with the primary aim of exploring its world, without engaging in any active conflict such as combat or stealth. Whether conflict is bypassed with cheats, mods, or built-in functionality, the aim is to refocus attention on the game's architecture, aesthetics, storytelling, and atmosphere. Feel free to think of it as a form of art modding or glitching. ]
