  1. @OskSta Bad North Tech

    I “liked” this “moment” but I’ve no idea where that’s recorded, so. Animated GIFs (sort of) of the mechanics of a 3D game under development. Fascinating. (via Infovore)

  2. frank lantz - don’t die

    Long interview that’s interesting on trying (and failing) to make videogames “serious”, the purpose and worth of learning about making games at university, having a shared basic knowledge of games history/culture/ideas. Needs editing.

  3. Sleep Ambient HD - YouTube

    Six-hour recordings of ambient sound and video from different games like GTA5, Tomb Raider, Mirror’s Edge, etc. (via @mattb)

  4. San Andreas State: Animal Cam

    I watched the recording of this for about half an hour today. (via Waxy)

  5. Scroll Back: The Theory and Practice of Cameras in Side-Scrollers

    I haven’t even read half of this but it’s so good. A really detailed and interesting look at a single feature of video games, that I’d barely thought about before, with loads of animated GIF examples. (via Infovore)

  6. Dan Golding — The End of Gamers

    This change in gaming seems long and slow and so I’m just picking out this one article to save as an almost arbitrary, but appropriately titled, marker for when gaming, and gamers, changed, (via @GreatDismal)

  7. How Jon Snow dissing the PlayStation 4 explains why no one cares you can’t afford a house

    Oh, yes, all of this. I’m baffled how things like TV and radio news seem to be written by and for white men over 50. God, that sounds naive now I’ve written it down. Duh. But still. (via @matlock)

  8. Evo 2013: your very, very vague guide

    Tom Armitage on the major fighting video game tournament. I’m fascinated by these things. Not enough that I watch them, but still. Worth knowing something about what goes on.

  9. Shooters: How Video Games Fund Arms Manufacturers • Articles •

    On the licensing deals between gun makers and video games. “We want to know explicitly how the rifle is to be used, ensuring that we are shown in a positive light… Such as the ‘good guys’ using the rifle.” (via @matlock)

  10. The guide to implementing 2D platformers | Higher-Order Fun

    I enjoyed this understandable description of different basic ways of constructing the basic physics of platform games. (via CreativeJS)

  11. Chasing a Sound in your Head (

    I love ‘Red Dead Redemption’ but this is exactly right. If I ever show a video game to a non-gamer there are always oddities you, even now, have to explain away with “that’s just how things are in games”. (via @cityofsound)

  12. ESPN - OTL: The Franchise - E-ticket

    I like American football but have never played Madden (until trying the demo this evening). I enjoyed this article about the history of the game, and trying to make the first version work on early consoles.

  13. Charlie Brooker: why I love video games | Technology | The Guardian

    Not just interesting on why games are good, but on exactly how non-games-players get frustrated with them. Would be good to talk about that more.

  14. The Escapist : Video Galleries : Zero Punctuation : Gears of War 2

    Quite enjoying these animated games reviews, although this is the only game I’ve played much, so far. Kind of sounds like old Victor Lewis Smith.

  15. Mapping the Brainysphere: 29 blogs switched-on gamers should read « Subject Navigator

    I was looking for one or two good games blogs to follow and found too many. Choices choices.

  16. Discount thoughts: critical thinking compilation

    Collections of intelligent writing about video games. Only two so far, but promising.

  17. DadHacker » Blog Archive » Donkey Kong and Me

    Lovely early days of computing story about the guy who wrote Donkey Kong for the Atari 400/800 home computer. (via Kottke)
