Once upon a time I made a blog about video games. And this is what's left of it (mostly tweets).

@GameTrailersVO:

The new GTAV PC 60fps trailer makes trivial things like Lester pushing pins into a bulletin board look AMAZING. [rockstargames.com]

Shadow of Mordor is the first time it bothers me to recognize Troy Baker’s voice. (Too American, maybe?) Was bound to happen someday.

@stroughtonsmith:

Watching Elite Dangerous gameplay is like watching people fly actual spaceships in an inhabited universe. So good. [youtube.com]

I so, so, so want to play Elite Dangerous — but only with a VR headset, so that’s a bit of an investment.

Oh. Even with assists off, Elite Dangerous enforces speed limits; ships don’t roll nearly fast enough for Battlestar Galactica dogfights.

I’m ashamed to say I had never realized before today that “newtonian physics” in a spaceship sim would also apply to rotational inertia.

DomiNations for iOS is everything you expected from Godus minus the fancy terraforming. The pinnacle of free-to-play city-building Skinner boxes.

@Phastin:

The secret backstory of The Lord of the Rings:

Gandalf is trying to get an achievement for taking the Ring to Mordor using only Hobbits.

If I didn’t have rent (and taxes) to pay I’d take a few months off to learn Unity and code a fully Newtonian, zero-assists spaceship sim.

“Dialogue by Orson Scott Card.” I bet that’s why the woman in The Dig keeps protesting “I don’t need to be rescued,” then needs to be rescued. Because aren’t feminists funny.

I feel less guilty for being addicted to DomiNations knowing that its creators were designers and producers at Firaxis.

Microsoft needs to license the technology from Huanshi’s MyIdol app for the Xbox Live avatars. It’s just too good.
