Here are my thoughts on the OUYA after playing a retail unit. There is a lot of room for creative application, but average consumers may be stumped by it.

I had a geek out moment meeting and interviewing Ken Levine, creator of BioShock and BioShock Infinite. We talked about how hard narrative is to successfully include in games while still having great action, why in-game choices don't always have have consequences, and why even he still has to appeal to the masses.

Great write up!

Coming from the P.O.V. of a DM, I can totally understand the tensions between conflict, narrative, choice, and story path. You try to map out a great story, but that means you know certain things ahead of time despite the choices of the players.

The illusion of depth is more important than actual depth. First, because it is actually achievable. Second, because they are one in the same if the player is sufficiently immersed and invested.

Thanks for an article that both entertained and brought up thought provoking points!

Hi
Want to say you something
In the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away.
Sorry if it puts you on thinking process.

The OUYA's Kickstarter is over, and they've raised $8.6 million to produce their consoles. I'm skeptical of them meeting their target delivery date (because so few Kickstarters ever do), but am cautiously watching the company in the next few months. I'll give them credit to the fact they answered all the questions about the console, even if all the answers weren't satisfactory to me.

I did a postmortem with CEO Julie Uhrman (while she was sitting an airport) yesterday. You can read it and a timeline of the OUYA here.

You can be a skeptic & optimistic. I asked for 'fair and balanced', you gave me 'ugh, no use talking to people who disagree with me'. =)

I spent about three weeks collecting interviews from the top people in gaming to bring you this. They were kind enough to share their thoughts and predictions for the year, and what they think is in store for the gaming industry.

Quotes from Ken Levine, Warren Spector, Randy Pitchford, the founder of Twitch, Kellee Santiago (co-creator of Journey), Doodle Jump's creator, Julie Uhrman - OUYA founder, Jordan Mechner, marketing heads at CCP and Activision, and a lot more.

Papa & Yo is great in concept, but needs to be patched to fix some technical issues. Still, the ideas behind the game are solid. My review is below.

More about the new SimCity, from its creative director Ocean Quigley. The depth of the simulations in this game seem unreal.

SimTown, SimCity Societies, and SimCity 4 put together more or less... Right? If they got rid of the Origin part of it, I'd be willing to buy it.
