FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437     In all the talk of graphical downgrades no one seems much preoccupied with 'why?'.  Why build something and then proceed to tear it down, piece by piece, in the hope that ever more diminished expectations about the final product won't be severe enough to...

DAILY MANIFESTO

sliverstorm: Vox Pop Winner October 2012

Posted on Monday, November 5 @ 13:20:03 Eastern by

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!
