I have mixed feelings about this article. On one hand, I agree with most of what he says. On the other hand, David Cage doesn't practice what he preaches, and on top of that, doesn't respect videogames as a medium. He even wants to rename 'games' to 'digital entertainment'. 

What does that even mean? Technically, a Pixar movie is digital entertainment. It's a meaningless phrase, unless you count the fact that it isn't the word 'games', thus freeing him from the need to respect the medium. 

Heavy Rain wasn't trying to be a game, it wasn't trying to play to the strengths of the medium, it was simply attempting to be an interactive movie. It was still a game, but it was a game that largely attempted to ignore the strength of the medium. 

If you want to grow up, make games that are more than just jiggling the sticks to effectively turn a page.

Does anyone know how to make a Nexus 7's gesture keyboard remember swears? Having to type them out manually is annoying.

Wow, the Google+ experience on an Android device is pretty spectacular. On a Nexus 7 specifically.

This is a really great article that sheds light on the ever-growing conflict between gamers and non-gamers with respect to the appreciation of games. He makes a lot of very strong points, and his arguments explain almost every conflict with the mainstream media. Long read, but very worth it.

Experiment: Curious how many people are actually using Google+ these days. So if you would, please drop a throwaway comment on this post. I guess if there's enough people actively using G+ that follow me then I might as well start using it more.

If you use Love2d, and want to use a 360 controller but have been frustrated by the lack of support, fret no longer! I have made a library that you can use from Love2d for full 360 game device support.

So if you were thinking about playing Final Fantasy Tactics on iPad... don't.
