Minimum Review
With so many shooters crowding the marketplace, it’s refreshing to see Minimum take the low-fi route through Steam Early Access.

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.

"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
TitleFree 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."
