Still sealed in the plastic after 35 years, a mint condition copy of Super Mario Bros. sold for $114,000 via Heritage Auctions this week.

Evan Lahti: Tribes' desolate tundra may have sold me on the openness of its environments. In 1998, after playing Quake 2 and Doom and other shooters set mostly inside bases and ceilinged facilities for years, Tribes' box conveyed a multiplayer FPS where you could really feel the wind in your face as you jetpacked over hilltops or hopped into flying vehicles that could seat multiple players.

You can pinch proverbs and lyrics and monologues from pop culture and use them in the game if you want, and where you have to create your own, there are step-by-step instructions for doing so. Character creation is a good example of this. You're not just told to come up with a bit of a story for your character, you're given a template with blank spaces to fill out. … [Read more...] about Excited and enchanted by new RPG Quest
