Gaming Links

Kieron Gillen interviews Will Wright.

N'Gai Croal writes about mainstream videogame reviews and what they never discuss: gameplay.

Jason Price sent me a link to some of the best viral marketing I've ever seen (for "Too Human").

Matt Sakey's excellent Culture Clash column has a new installment titled Graduation Day.

Mike Smart sent me a link to a website titled Myths About Violent Video Games and Children, created by two psychiatry faculty members at Harvard.

Here's a link to an article I saw in a Penny Arcade news post--Gamble Your Life Away in ZT Online. It's a Chinese online game that's ostensibly free, but not really, and the article is an interesting read.

Chris Grenard has started a new Rock Band website with a twist: it includes user reviews by song, along with difficulty ratings by instrument. Having a database of user reviews is an excellent idea, and you can help by registering at the site and adding some reviews of your own.
