^ That should have been on "Video games"...
But yes, his blog is very inspiring, but very long posts. I am trying
to read up, but don't find much time. I will spread the word about IF
on kindle. Have been wondering why there is no interpreter for the
mobile platforms (or maybe there is and I haven'T noticed?)
I use one called HunkyPunk for Android which is decent. The biggest problem is that the newer format that is required for larger, more fully-featured games (glulx) is pretty much limited to desktop clients and web-based interpreters right now. That's changing, but slowly; there are relatively few people involved in the development of such things.
I am thinking that a dedicated eInk reader of some kind is going to make it to my Christmas list. They've really come down in price, and I know I would use it; I've been reading ebooks since my Palm M100 in 2001.
Here's kind of a fun, silly little video game:
Basically, you attempt to scare people out of the house as quickly as possible without getting them killed.
It takes a while, but you can frighten everyone out of the house.
I haven't tried killing anyone, though.
Cute game, fleeb; I rather enjoyed sending the little weebles running through the house with they're heads in their hands....
on the less cute but still fun side is the Last Stand zombie-killing game....

'Cept you, fleeb....you're safe.
Wow...apparently, I enjoyed it enough to post it twice....

They totally stole that from stargate universe.
How It Should Have Ended: Super Mario Brothers
scored Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Had to resort to downloading it - every place locally is sold out of physical copies :(
I've been obsessively playing the game for about a week now. They did some impressive work on that game. I wound up creating a sneak-mage... I sneak into an area, summon an atronach, and hide in the shadows while it mops up mobs. If this doesn't work, I might summon weaponry (haven't found anything to summon armor, like you could in Oblivion) and use restoration spells to keep me alive.
I can now fill soulstones for enchanting things just by using a summoned weapon to kill something.
I also nearly have 100 sneak, but only put points into the bits that allow me to be silent.
Meanwhile, I'm accumulating shouts and dragon kills to power them, and I've finished the mage quest line, so I'm the area's arch-mage now. I kill dragons by summoning an ice atronach to distract the dragon, and firing destructive lighting bolt spells at it. I switch between summoning and restoration spells often for this.
Magazines can now officially review a game that people have been playing for about a year or two now. Huzzah!
I'm nowhere near The End in Minecraft, having started a new world after he got the world generation code worked out. I have a place with plenty of obsidian, but I've been tooling around with other things instead, never bothering with The End or The Nether. I want to set up a server and have a few friends play (co-operatively) together, as I think that might be really fun.
