This post is just getting less and less timely. On the other hand, this question is timeless. "Birth of an Icon" - found at FreakingNews.com That said, the event which sparked this post happened almost a year ago now. So after reading this new post by Mark Danger Chen, which deeply abuts the themes of postmodernity which this here post is really about, I figured I'd better just hurry up and get this thing out the door today. While I wasn't able to make GDC last year, like virtually everyone else (who works in or around games) I was promptly informed by colleagues and blog posts about Heather Chaplin's now infamous rant regarding perpetual adolescence in games (or really perpetual adolescents in the games industry). weblog - That old question again

One of your mules has taken a sick day, but instead of staying home and recovering from whatever vague illness he claims to have, he simply wanders around town, getting into lots of adventures while leaving you in the lurch. If this sounds suspiciously like the plot of a rather well-known 80s movie it is, but it is also the basis of Glitch Games' marvelous new comedic mobile adventure, Ferris Mueller's Day Off! Instead of resembling Matthew Broderick, Ferris is... well, he's a mule. A green mule.

This Gaymer's Story
When I first discovered that someone had released a Magical Taruruuto-Kun title for the Game Gear, I was thrilled. After all, I've long loved the Game Freak-developed, Sega-published Mega Drive game based on this anime and manga franchise, so surely I'd also get a kick out of a portable iteration, right? You'd think so, but my first impressions of Tsukuda Ideal's Game Gear title were far from favorable. It didn't help matters, of course, that this game isn't a platformer like its Mega Drive-based cousin is; instead, it's a shmup in the vein of Gradius (Parodius may be a better point of comparison). That's rarely an issue for me, though, so what prompted my less-than-thrilled initial reaction to this one? The Gay Gamer

Retro Remakes flipside: Demaking modern games The other side to the Retro Remake phenomenon is, of course, the demake (a term, I’ve just found out via Wikipedia, was coined by Polytron’s Phil Fish): taking a modern game and simulating it as if through retro tech.

I’m Tired of Being a “Woman in Games.” I’m a Person. While I understand this is a rant, and I'm totally okay with that because god knows I've ranted...but well. Okay, I agree on several points, SEVERAL points you're making, in fact over the last month we've had plenty of sexism/sexist articles on Kotaku which I don't mind for the most part (cept for the Bitch article...that was a non issue for me.) Here's the thing, Kotaku has to decide to pick WHICH article theme they want to go with each day, you can't have a blathering piece on whatever Felicia Day is doing and how cute she is and then in like the next three post "Feminist Whore achievement" the next. It's all about Page Hits and that's okay...however Kotaku knows EXACTLY whats going on when they post sexy articles or articles about some Jidol who plays games, J-idols wearing latex showing their boobs or a figurine or a game like Code of Princess, then on the EXACT SAME DAY post something along the lines of female mistreatment in gaming. Why?
