Less of a symphony, more of a cacophony.

It's not quite back to what was great yet, but there's a spark still here.

Seems like Suda51 saw Frozen, played Dark Souls, and then got the lyrics mixed up.

The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

maca2kx: Vox Pop Winner December 2012

Posted on Monday, January 7 @ 14:51:27 PST by

December's month of Vox Pop articles represents the past and the future. xDUMPWEEDx explored the history of the CD-ROM and the radical format shift away from cartridge-based systems. I still miss those gray blocks. Though dust had to be blown out every now and then, they had very little loading time and they were sturdy. I'm sure you could stop a mugging with one of them. However, the new format of downloadable content to a hard drive or the advent of cloud gaming may well soon replace the CD-ROM in distribution.

On the horizon are two trends: free streaming as presented by UrbanMasque and Game Companions as presented by maca2kx. Streaming isn't a new thing, but now it's becoming more feasible for more people. During the next generation of consoles, we're likely see even more live streams available. But game companions are definitely items I would love to see packaged in more Collector's Editions. The creation of story worlds are more important than ever and game companions can help immerse the player in those worlds as powerfully as the gameplay.

Excerpt:"I want a report on the game’s hidden story. I want material reflecting the stories of characters the protagonist mentions in passing. I want information about the technology we use to accomplish missions in game."

"The difference was clear to not only software developers, but to the consumer as well. CD-ROM technology was the way of the future.."

Runner-Up:UrbanMasque
Title:Free Streaming

Excerpt:
"This guide will most likely be for console gamers, but if you're a PC gamer with a rig that can decipher Alien DNA, I will mention your option a bit at the bottom since your setup will be extremely simple."
