(@randileeharper recommended this rhythm game, saying:)
“it is very fun! but it is also VERY difficult to get into. i love it because it’s like music therapy, and requires enough concentration that it works for adhd/anxiety (for me, anyways). most people get frustrated after trying it, but if you stick with it, it gets easier. :)”

Arcade Spirits on Steam
“Arcade Spirits is a romantic visual novel that follows an alternative timeline where the 1983 video game crash never occurred. It's 20XX and you've just started a new job at the Funplex game arcade. Who will you meet along the way? Will you find the romance you're seeking?”

(@kit_flowerstorm recommended this, saying—)
“I’m biased (I helped with #accessibility in Arcade Spirits and the dev team is great) but this game made me feel hopeful. Even with the protagonist being so used to frozen meals & not wanting to get their hopes up. If you need a smile, check this out.”

Interview: Game Accessibility Specialist and Advocate Ian Hamilton on CVAA
“[CVAA] doesn’t affect games directly. It affects advanced communication services (text chat, voice chat, video chat) across all industries, including those in games. So it is only relevant to games that include chat functionality, and only relevant to the chat functionality, not to gameplay.

“It must be possible to locate, navigate to, and operate the chat functionality, so any UI/info needed to do this is also covered. This technically includes accessibility of manuals, help websites etc that relate to comms functionality, but those are pretty unlikely to exist.”

“Protip for anyone recording MAME videos: Use -aviwrite to record raw video, -nosnapbilinear to turn off bilinear scaling, and -snapsize to specify a multiple of the base resolution that is at least 720p. You get nice, crystal-clear graphics even after YouTube’s processing.”

He also added in a later tweet:
“Nota bene: Being that it’s uncompressed 720p video, you will need either a beefy SSD, or the patience to play a given game at roughly 20-30% of full speed. But the end result is something that’s actually watchable, and not mangled, macro-blocked hell.”

How modders are removing enemies from games to create stress-free experiences | PC Gamer
“Mods for games are usually additive. New features, forgotten content… mods are usually about putting more into a game. Yet in recent years we’ve seen the rise of a particular kind of mod that takes things away. Specifically, taking away a game’s enemies or threats. We previously covered a mod which removed all danger from first-person sci-fi horror Soma—it later become an official game mode—but there are plenty more games out there getting mods that do the same and they’re equally fascinating.”

Retrogaming on original consoles in HDMI on a budget
“For example, we enjoy the Hyperkin Retron 5 in that it lets us play NES, Famicom, SNES, Super Famicom, Genesis, Mega Drive, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, & Game Boy over 5 category ports. with one additional adapter, it adds Game Gear, Master System, and Master System Cards. It uses emulators at its heart, but it requires the use of the original game cartridges.

“However, the Hyperkin supports all the original controllers — many of which we’ve found at our local thrift store — which strikes a nice balance between the old and the new. Best of all, it uses HDMI as its output plug which makes it super easy to hook up to our TV.”

“OpenJazz is a free, open-source version of the classic Jazz Jackrabbit™ games.

“OpenJazz can be compiled on a wide range of operating systems, including Windows, macOS, GNU/Linux and *BSD. Also ports are available for some homebrew platforms, for example Wii and PSP.

“To play, you will need the files from one of the original games.

“With the demise of DOS-based operating systems, it has become necessary to use emulators to play old DOS games. Jazz Jackrabbit™ deserves more - and would benefit greatly from new features.”

The ten most meaningful videogame quotes of all time
"'You are in a maze of twisty passages, all alike' is -- if you'll permit me to be absurdly nerdy for a moment -- a very well-constructed sentence. It is a statement of mystery and ultimate possibility. It's brief, yet descriptive enough that your mind can fill in all the blanks: the details of what the maze looks to are ultimately up to you, but you're given enough information about the current location to make an informed gameplay decision."

The Struggle To Bring More Women Into Game Development
"Gary Gygax, biological determinist and creator of Dungeons & Dragons, once told a reporter for Icon magazine that “gaming in general is a male thing... Everybody who’s tried to design a game to interest a large female audience has failed. And I think that has to do with the different thinking processes of men and women.”"

Shut Up & Sit Down | Review: Cards Against Humanity
"These are just a small sample of the subjects which Cards Against Humanity suggests as punchlines. You don’t need to use them, it implies; whatever you come up with was your choice. You’re the one who put those pieces together. But Cards Against Humanity still gives you the tools with which you can construct these calls and responses. It still frames and controls what happens. There’s a word for this, and that word is “enabling.”"

The State News :: Did you seriously just play that card?
"Where are all of these targeted communities at the Cards Against Humanity games? Do they play it? I don’t know. But typically, all groups I’ve seen play Cards Against Humanity are composed of white, college-educated, able-bodied, cisgendered, privileged individuals. We hardly feel any microaggressions inflicted by our society, so who are we to make these kinds of jokes?"

Braid comes to the Mac | TUAW
"Now Braid, Jonathan Blow's terrific deconstruction of Super Mario Bros., has appeared on OS X thanks to the kind folks over at Hothead Games. The game has won more awards than you can count, but I can personally tell you it's great, as I played the XBLA release when it first arrived. It's a classic 2D platformer in the vein of Mario with a very important twist: you can reverse, slow, and replay time throughout the various levels."
