sliverstorm: Vox Pop Winner October 2012
Posted on Monday, November 5 @ 13:20:03 PST by Nicholas Tan
Wow, this past month had plenty of entries and a wealth of them were featured. You guys definitely made my job difficult. But in the end, I chose sliverstorm's Black Mesa tribute, in part because it's an awesome game and in part because of all the screenshots he took (plus the commentary). That's a lot of effort for one game and for one article. When I have spare time, I'm going to have to get through this remake, just to say that I have.
Also thanks to UghRochester for the review on the Roxio. Now I know what to get if I ever need to video capture (whenever I no longer have access to Jessica's epic editing station).
I suppose if there's a theme for the entries this time around, it would be about rescuing games whether it's through De-Ting's recipe of solutions, maca2kx's exploration of Kickstarter, spartan317's argument that executing old ideas well can be better than random innovation, or shandog137's diatribe on dumbed down games as a thought that is simply misunderstood.
Congratuldations to sliverstorm for his second Vox Pop win!
