BLDGBLOG, a mind-expanding blog on architecture

I’ve been wanting to write about BLDGBLOG for a long time. This post perhaps explains why I think Geoff Manaugh is one of the most interesting speculative fiction writers today: [You] begin to fast-forward the video at 4x speed, then 8x, then 16x, then 32x – and you realize, with a collective gasp, that that […]

Jordan Mechner has a new website

Jordan Mechner, creator of Prince of Persia and all around nice guy, has a new website with information on all of the projects he has worked on, from Karateka to the Jerry-Bruckheimer-produced Prince of Persia movie. (Via John August.) launches new premium membership area on game AI

Time to help friends with a little publicity: On October 1st,, one of the top websites for AI in games, launched a premium membership area. It contains a ton of content, such as code samples, an AI sandbox, technical reports, master classes, interactive discussions with experts, A/V sessions… The mind boggles. I can’t think […]

Scorpia lives!

I just discovered that Scorpia, who used to write for the venerable Computer Gaming World in the 80s and 90s, has a website. A website that looks like it’s from the 80s and 90s. Still, great to see she is still present and active.

Surreal Game Design is no more?

Looks like the Surreal Game Design website has turned into a bland corporate Midway site, instead of the entertaining blog by the designers at Surreal Software… a pity, I thought it was an excellent idea.

Surreal Game Design: a group blog on game design

Joerg has studied physics and used to work with languages like C/C++, Forth, Lisp, Assembly and others in all kinds of environments. That may be so, but I know […]

Zero Punctuation

If by some chance you haven’t yet heard of “Zero Punctuation”, Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw’s video game review column over at The Escapist, well, go check it out. It’s very entertaining.

Warren Spector starts blog, sells studio to Disney

I just found out via Robin that Warren Spector has started a blog. And what’s the first thing I read? Junction Point has been acquired by Disney. (I am not a game news junkie anymore, so it was news to me.) Congratulations!

Dueling Analogs – crude but hilarious online comic about games

If Penny Arcade and VGCats make you blush, don’t read Dueling Analogs. You’d be missing quite a few very funny jokes though. (Thanks, Tobe!)
