How was your week? Ours was pretty good. Lots of work and melting in the humidity. I feel so sorry for our poor kitties. Do you think shaving domestic shorthair cats is necessary?
Our weekend is looking pretty mellow. Might head out to Parcade, might finally get around to watching Fast & Furious 6, (we love car movies and movies where things blow up. Also, The Rock). I also have a little gardening to do and some serious planning for our trip to Tokyo in September. I can’t wait!!!
Here’s what I’ve been loving this week:
Online browser game The Molyneux Experience is a surreal and hysterical sendup of everyone’s favourite over-selling game designer.
I went ahead and picked up Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP for my iPad this week as it was made a free download to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the iTunes store. I do plan on actually finishing it this time, stupid moon cycles…
Speaking of Sword & Sworcery, Elizabeth Simins’ poetic, comic-art ode to the Scyntian over at Reaction Zine is beautiful and just a little heartbreaking. However, spoilers if you haven’t finished the game yet.
Tired of hunting through your bookmarks to find your favourite online flash games? Pong.com is here to save you. Basically Pinterest for flash games, the site even has the blessing of Atari’s Nolan Bushnell.
Leigh Alexander’s piece on the perils of crowdfunding is eye-opening, obligatory reading for anyone considering diving in the Kickstarter pool.
Slate has discovered Candy Crush Saga, but sadly provide little insight into King’s mastery of slot-style player manipulation. Seriously, they could teach courses in this stuff. Now leave me alone, I have jelly to dissolve.
And finally, Kirk Hamilton has me thinking I need to track down a copy of No One Lives Forever. Can you help a girl out?
And I realize I forgot about this last week, but I really liked the feature so I’m bringing it back and hopefully I will remember next week and it will stick…
