    Randomness in games

    Hi guys! I saw someone posted my Game Shame article here last week, so I thought I'd drop by and show you my latest article on randomness in games. In the article, I talk about some of the uses for randomness, as well as some of the pitfalls you should be aware of. Enjoy...

    Game Shame

    Hi guys! I'm the author of this article. I just wanted to clear one thing up that a few people, for whatever reason, didn't pick up on. Some of you seemed to think that I was saying that games aren't art. Actually, my opinion is that they are ALL art (I define art as products of creativity)...

    Zero Punctuation: iPhone Games

    Wait - no 100 Rogues?! Hit it up next time, Yahtzee. You'll like it. It is one of the few truly original games on the iPhone, with fully animated pixel art and SNES style music. Here's the soundtrack

    Zero Punctuation: Overlord 2

    You know what's really great about these ZP reviews that I just realized? The fact that he does not show the game, but instead explains the core mechanics. We need to start looking at games this way more often.

    PC Game Bashing

    Nothing's wrong with PC gaming. Valve and Blizzard make PC games, and they are pretty much the best game developers in existence. The thing is, they still don't have the hype power of Microsoft or Bethesda or any of these lesser console developers. So all your friends just don't know. Pity them.

    Fallout 3-like it hasn't been reviewed enough

    There's a lot wrong with the game. Chief among those things: It's far and away a worse game than the original, which was made more than a dozen years ago. Pathetic.

    Poll: Just How Many People Think Their Game Ideas Would Make In The Video Game Market?

    Sins of a Solar Empire. So I want to get into 4X.

    Sins is kinda crap I hate to say it. I am a big fan of the genre. Make sure you have played Master of Magic and X-Com: UFO Defense, and also to a lesser extent, Civilization. Those are the good 4x games. You're better off with Master of Orion than the Stardock game. Although Stardock's...
