Here are a bunch of links. I’d wanted to do a post about each of these, but I am falling further behind and just don’t have time to do some of this stuff justice. So let me just point to some posts and say, “That’s cool.”
Speaking of old games, Mark has a great series of posts on old Commodore 64 games. It looks like he was able to grab some great screenshots using his emulator. I never had a C64 (alas) but I saw variants of these games on other systems and I enjoyed seeing them again.
Steven has moved his long-standing anime site over to mee.nu. The new site just has new content, but it sure is nice to have permalinks to work with. Now I can link to a particlar post that stikes my fancy, as in this case where he foretells the future using only numbers as his source of divining power. (I’ll bet he’s right. I’ll bet 148 million bucks he’s right.)
Cineris has a great post up on some anti-nerdist advertising. Er. Nerdisim? Nerdaphobia? He also has a post on his first impressions of Final Fantasy XII. His thoughs on the game are similar to mine, although thankfully he wasn’t baffled by the plot the way I was at first.
Shamus Plays LOTRO
As someone who loves Tolkein lore and despises silly MMO quests, this game left me deeply conflicted.
Batman: Arkham City
A look back at one of my favorite games. The gameplay was stellar, but the underlying story was clumsy and oddly constructed.
Top 64 Videogames
Lists of 'best games ever' are dumb and annoying. But like a self-loathing hipster I made one anyway.
A horrible, railroading, stupid, contrived, and painfully ill-conceived roleplaying campaign. All in good fun.
What is this silly word, why did some people get so irritated by it, and why did it fall out of use?
