An interesting note about our Spoiler Warning hosts. Rutskarn has a blog. Mumbles has a blog. Chris has a blog. Heck, even I have a blog. But not Josh. Josh hides in my blog-basement and pops up once a week to drink all my beer.
Speaking of Spoiler Warning, it looks like we’ve got another episode here:
Say, who among you is headed to PAX East this year? Josh and I will be there. I’ll probably be hanging out around The Escapist events. I might end up on a couple of panels like last year, or I might just hang out with my fellow Escapist contributors. Or I might end up at the BioWare booth, trying to goad one of the Mass Effect 2 writers into facing me in a gladiatorial fight to the death. Hard to say right now.
The event is out of three-day passes, but they still have passes for all three single days available. That’s kind of a surprise. Saturday was long sold out by this time last year. In fact, the show itself might have been sold out by February. I can only assume sales are slower this year because the event falls on Easter weekend.
A programming project where I set out to make a gigantic and complex world from simple data.
Overused Words in Game Titles
I scoured the Steam database to figure out what words were the most commonly used in game titles.
A video discussing Megatexture technology. Why we needed it, what it was supposed to do, and why it maybe didn't totally work.
What Does a Robot Want?
No, self-aware robots aren't going to turn on us, Skynet-style. Not unless we designed them to.
Blistering Stupidity of Fallout 3
Yeah, this game is a classic. But the story is idiotic, incoherent, thematically confused, and patronizing.
