Here’s a wish from me to all of you for a happy, safe, and fun holiday weekend! Since Thanksgiving is traditionally the beginning of the Christmas season, once again we put up our holiday decor, which will be around until after New Year’s (which isn’t so far off now. Eek!).
Also, I’ve been meaning to mention, for you Mac folks, that Spiderweb has released the Mac version of Geneforge 5, the conclusion of the series (PC in March). If you need something to play over the long weekend, go grab it!
There’s been a lot of noise around the ‘net lately about Mirror’s Edge. An article at the UK Guardian by Keith Stuart takes reviewers to task for not appreciating the game’s “innovation”, instead focusing more on its flaws. Coyote has a post on his blog about this, as well.
Over at Forbes, they have an article about Electronic Entertainment Design and Research, a company that does sales projections for games. Using information from a 6,000 game database, they can (supposedly) “determine how certain developers and publishers, marketing budgets and release dates align to affect game sales”.
