Hey kids, it’s more content from GameSpite Quarterly 3! Which is neat and all, but as a lot of people have noted, this stuff doesn’t work nearly as well online as it does in print. This is not a shameful attempt to extort you into buying a copy of the book — well, maybe a little bit — but simply a salute to the greatness of print. Guys, tree corpses are still a wonderful way to absorb the written word. Don’t believe Ondore’s lies!
Today’s entries are significant for including one of our deliberate attempts not to make this issue entirely centered around the American 8-bit experience by including an entry on UK microcomputer hero Dizzy. So that’s nice. I think Matt Cramp may be Australian, though, so I’m not sure this attempt really counts as us expanding our horizons. It’s more like being slapped across the face for our closed-minded colonial ways. How sad.
In other news, today’s episode of Retronauts is pretty keen! Also, I’ve discovered that Street Fighter 2010 is not a very good game, but it’s a very interesting game. And that makes it notable. I’m glad I waited until 2010 to try it, though, because I really don’t think I would have appreciated it as the noble failure it is back in the day.
