In another of today's main features, regular columnist Jim Rossignol presents this week's 'Blogged Out', a news report that looks at the world of developer blogging and the conversations being had with the community at large.
This week, Rossignol visits Wyatt Cheng, the productivity of Generation X, and Ron Gilbert's comments on the recent furore over game journalism, which he interprets the following way:
"Ron Gilbert suggests that games developers need to start delivering some genuine thought-provocation so the games journalists have something aesthetically and intellectually stirring to write about. He explains: "I watched David Lynch's Mulholland Drive again last night and I am still thinking about that movie. It's complex and there are a lot of layers to mull over. It's twisted and days after you see it you find yourself saying "Oh, that's what that means". Do games do that? Not to me." Gilbert's conclusion is certainly representative of the opinions of a large swathe of the gaming population, and if that's the case, then perhaps the idea that games need to be more 'Art' gives the issue the wrong focus."
