Another TSG Writecast! This time we had a goal of pitting the 3DS and Vita against each other. Unfortunately, we got off topic quite a bit. But that’s cool, you know. It was fun. The podcast is actually a little old now and was posted before the Vita launched, but you can still check it out for some goodness.
Anyways, if you want to check it out head over to TheSpeedGamers!
Recently I checked out an old BBC documentary series from 1982 called The Computer Programme, and it was really interesting. They may seem a bit obsolete these days, but I do think watching it today gives an interesting perspective of where we’ve been, where we’re at now and where we are going with technology.
I’ve been trying to jump back into the general tech scene. I pretty much disappeared from the whole thing about the time Apple started really taking a grasp of the field, so it’s been interesting jumping back into it. Sure, looking at the new is important and I’m definitely frequenting tech news sites more often now. But I think I feel the same way with tech as I do with games: that it is equally as important to look at the old. The Computer Programme has been great for giving a look back into where technology stood in 1982, and the questions and concerns they had back then.
At least from what I can tell, there doesn’t seem to be any official way to check out the series anymore. But you can find the series uploaded on YouTube.
While I haven’t gotten around to writing anything specific to Skyward Sword yet, I have put together this piece on the Zelda series as a whole. Actually, the article started as me criticizing Skyward Sword’s overworld, but it opened up into the topic of overworlds on a franchise level.
You can check out the article on TheSpeedGamers!
(Or you can just look at a stupid picture I drew.)
I actually recently beat Skyward Sword, so you might see me doing some articles about it soon. I can garuntee that the title is slightly involved in one I have going up very soon.
But yeah, those freaking cats in Skyward Sword. They got my nerves so much. During the day, cool leave them alone. Heck, they’re not even that cute. But at night I’m just like, “Excuse me, sir. Can you tell me how to find Fujima-san’s hous — OH GOD, THE PAIN.”
