By Nicole Drum - December 7, 2019 05:44 pm EST Share 0 Comments 0 Game of Thrones fans are used to waiting, especially when it comes to the books. After all, it's been eight years since the most recent installment in George R.R. Martin's fantasy series, A Dance With Dragons, was published. With the HBO series having wrapped up, fans have since been eagerly waiting for some news that the next book in the series, The Winds of Winter, will be published soon. Thus far, that wait has been in vain as there has been no announcement about that book. In fact, there hasn't been much of anything from Martin recently even on his own blog and that lack of words has a bit cautiously optimistic as they think the silence might be hinting there's a big announcement coming soon.

By Tanner Dedmon - December 7, 2019 09:51 am EST Share 0 Comments 0 There’s a new game that’s been announced recently called I Am Jesus Christ, a game which promises players the chance to play as Jesus himself and perform miracles for those in need.

From 2010 to 2014 Richard Cobbett wrote Crapshoot, a column about bringing random obscure games back into the light. Play enough games, and at some point your mind is going to start creating your own. If you can program, if you can draw, maybe you can sit down and make them happen. If not, there are tools like GameMaker and Unity and the UDK to make them happen. But what if you'd been inspired before these modern marvels came along? What if you'd had a genius idea for your own 3D world back in 1991? Then maybe, just maybe, you'd have found the 3D Construction Kit (or Virtual Reality Studio) the answer to your prayers. If so, you'd be the only one. 3D Construction Kit was where your ambitions went to die.Very rarely has such an awesome toy been this useless. And yes, awesome is the word. 3D Construction Kit offered incredible technology by the standards of the time, not simply on the PC, but on everything from the Amiga to the ZX Spectrum. It gave you a complete polygon-based 3D … [Read more...] about Crapshoot: 3D Construction Kit, the toolset for making your own crap games

So politics in games can go beyond the simulation of diplomacy and decision-making to also investigate how the balance of power affects the lives of our characters in other genres, whether it's imaginary factions they choose to support or their communities telling them how to live.From Fallout: New Vegas to Life is Strange, the fingerprints of politics are all over games. Which brings us to our weekend question: What's a game that handles politics well? Here are some of our … [Read more...] about What’s a game that handles politics well?
