Catching Up With Victory Point Games...maybe...

Shellie emailed me a little while ago and said "OMG, have you died? Where is Cracked LCD?". And then she threatened to fire me. The truth is, Bill Abner is completely AWOL, I think he just got a review code for Shogun 2 and as such my four-in-one review of some new Victory Point Games is languishing on his desk. Or I think he might be travelling. So, while you bide your time wondering how much I really didn't like Parsec, here's some stuff from Nohighscores.com you might like.

First up is an editorial I did on video game length, filler, and the illusion of content. I get to make a reference to Jed Buell's midgets.

Then there's a roundup of four recent IOS games that I think are worth your dollar.

Bill Abner writes his second board game review for Brief History of the World. He uses a numbered list in it. I'm ashamed.

Bill also gives us a piece on failure in games. He definitely SHOULD NOT play Hard Corps: Uprising.

But yeah, eventually the Cracked LCD piece will go up so keep checking. I'm about to go play Mansions of Madness at the Hellfire Club so if someone sees it post, link us up.

There Will Be Games

Sometime in the early 1980s, MichaelBarnes’ parents thought it would be a good idea to buy him a board game to keep him busy with some friends during one of those high-pressure, “free” timeshare vacations. It turned out to be a terrible idea, because the game was TSR’s Dungeon! - and the rest, as they say, is history. Michael has been involved with writing professionally about games since 2002, when he busked for store credit writing for Boulder Games’ newsletter. He has written for a number of international hobby gaming periodicals and popular Web sites. From 2004-2008, he was the co-owner of Atlanta Game Factory, a brick-and-mortar retail store. He is currently the co-founder of FortressAT.com and Nohighscores.com as well as the Editor-in-Chief of Miniature Market’s Review Corner feature. He is married with two childen and when he’s not playing some kind of game he enjoys stockpiling trivial information about music, comics and film.
