Exciting day so far. We waited in line in the murderous cold and Turok-level fog. Then we stood in line to get our passes. Then there was a kind of Aaron Sorkin style walking line. Now were sitting in line for the main exhibition hall.
Someone beside me is reading a comic book. Guys in front of and behind me are playing Magic: The Gathering. Someone has produced a beach ball, and a game of co-op crowd volleyball is now in session.
Man, this place is CRAWLING with nerds.
The Best of 2012
My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2012.
This Game is Too Videogame-y
What's wrong with a game being "too videogameish"?
A stream-of-gameplay review of Dead Island. This game is a cavalcade of bugs and bad design choices.
A video discussing Megatexture technology. Why we needed it, what it was supposed to do, and why it maybe didn't totally work.
Blistering Stupidity of Fallout 3
Yeah, this game is a classic. But the story is idiotic, incoherent, thematically confused, and patronizing.
