This Week's Standout Member Blogs
- Opportunistic Play
(Michel McBride Charpentier)
Michel McBride Charpentier name-drops Clint Hocking in this blog post, which is why I selected it for inclusion. Seriously though, he also makes interesting observations about the importance of opportunity in game design.
For his effort, Michel will receive a lifetime subscription to Gamasutra sister publication Game Developer magazine
- Alexei Chibakov
It is well documented that video games are interactive murder simulators, so game content ratings are of paramount importance. But there are lots of them! Alexei Chibakov crunches the stats.
- 'Don't Get Married'?
"Don't Get Married"? More like "Do Get Married, While Maintaining A Healthy Work/Life Balance"!
- John Kwag
In this post, John Kwag clarifies and solves Korea. Oh ho, I slay me. Actually he continues analyzing the Korean gaming scene, as he began to do in a previously-featured post.
- The Philosophy of The Wind Waker - Part Five
Dan Merrill loves The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
. A lot. He really, really likes this video game.
