I'm broke! I'd almost forgotten what that was like. I'm tempted to adopt an impression of someone elderly, shake my fist, and complain about all them yougin' bahstids comin' here and stealin' our jobs. It may help dissuade me from buying the Heroes
Season One DVD box set next payday.
In lieu of actual content, I think I'll link to things. Most of them will have to do with gaming, and LGS-related gaming at that, but I'll try to make them as interesting as possible for those who do not, in fact, care.
Right!The Illuminated Ones
An interview with Jordan Thomas, who created Robbing the Cradle and far-and-away my favourite level of Bioshock. He talks about light, how important it is, and the various techniques he uses in his work. You may find it deadly boring; I found it fascinating. Free Radical - By Shamus Young
So, how many times have you visited ff.net and rolled your eyes at the latest 'novalization' of your favourite game? They tend to suck, right?
Here's one that doesn't. It's based on the original System Shock
, though it expands quite a bit upon the story and has a very different ending. It could be a reasonably good quality cyber-punk novel with interesting text effects (alas the audio links are long-dead), and even has a few moments that made me giggle (along with one moment that I thought was awesomely cool). It is, for the most part, very well thought out. If you're looking for someway to waste time, there are worse places.The Complex and Terrifying Reality of Star Wars Fandom
It's funny because it's true.Zero Punctuation
A British guy who lives in Australia reviews games very fast into a microphone while little photoshopped images flash up to facilitate his explanations. Cruel and hilarious. I even like the Bioshock review, dedicated LGS apologist that I am.
And finally, from my favourite game journalist...Brain Pies!
I don't know.
