Hello! We’ve decided to spark up a regular list of links and stuff that we’ve passed the week reading and playing. It’s a little insight into why making games takes years and how bugs happen.
First up, did you ever play Progress Quest? Candy Box is EVEN BETTER than the RPG that plays itself. That merchant’s so creepy that we threw all our candies on the ground to make him sad. That’s winning isn’t it?
After seeing the new trailer we’re all scarily excited about GTA V, because we had our funnest times driving about in San Andreas and trying to find Bigfoot. We identify with Trevor most, obviously. By the way, we would like to think that we wouldn’t have made these comments on GTA V stories and videos if we were younger but we can’t guarantee it. Come to think about it we can’t guarantee we didn’t make any of them today either.
Speaking of Bigfoot, Eurogamer’s feature about the quest to find the secrets of Shadow of the Colossus is awesome. We hadn’t heard of most of these. Oh god we have to go and play it this weekend now.
This crazy guy lived without the internet for a year. Bet he had to spent the whole time laughing at keyboard cat. Apparently he can somehow be reabsorbed into society. Who’s going to tell him about Ed Balls and Gangnam Style?
Finally, we’re into this GPU-powered water physics demo. Needs more sharks/squid though.
