The fine art of misdirecti-- *disappears*


Sorry about the lack of updates or even the lack of surprises I had planned originally. Let's just say the week got away from me and things didn't quite play out as I wanted. But still, lots of good things happened. Just stuff I can't say much about.

Yet.

In the meantime, feel free to check out a couple of my more recent features over at Wii Chat. Plenty coming up, we're just experiencing a bottleneck at the moment. One column which seems to have opened up interesting discourse is my look into our speed obsessed culture and how this affects the gaming landscape:

"However, one thing that has become increasingly apparent is that we're looking in the wrong places to attribute culpability when it comes to the growing number of shorter, 'small' games. We blame casuals, non-gamers and Nintendo via Wii for supposedly pandering to them.

"But we're burning the wrong witch.

"If you're looking for someone to blame, don’t point a finger at them. Instead, invert that twitchy little RSI fated digit to yourself and you'll find the culprit.

"Because we're all to blame. Every single one of us. "

You can read the rest here: http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-articles/32332-short-games-mini-games-whos-blame.html


Other than that, I'm hoping what I wanted to show last week will be available this week. We'll see.

Heh, would I do that?









Hmm, yeah, you're right, it would probably be something I'd do ;) But not this time! I've actually got tonnnnnns of stuff to publish this week if I'm allowed to show it. Although I wonder if I'm jinxing them by doing so... curse my troubled publishing history!

That said, this entry has its fair share of exclusive material, once you sift through the-- *is suddenly struck down by concealed ninja*
