I was out traveling all of last week and didn’t have time to do any blogging — well, that’s not quite true. I wrote a pretty lengthy piece on the current ugliness in games that’s been going on, but I don’t really have the stomach to get involved in all that awfulness. Instead, please enjoy the video above, wherein I praise a 25-year-old pinball game. Hard-hitting games journalism, that’s what I’m all about.
OK, OK; despite my self-effacement, I had a bunch of great developer interviews at PAX this weekend to cap off my trip: Hironobu Sakaguchi, Hajime Tabata, the Dragon Quest guys, Keiji Inafune… hopefully I’ll have time to transcribe them this week. Please look forward to it.
Also, last week, Jaz Rignall spearheaded a pretty much amazing comprehensive history of video games for USgamer that you really ought to read. We’re moving into fall release season and won’t be dwelling much on history for the coming months, so please enjoy this last hoorah for the past.
