This documentary follows the development process of three games on the Xbox; Braid, Super Meat Boy and Fez. The last of which I have not played yet but the first two are really amazing games and are worth looking into. Thanks to the crew at WBIT, I had the chance to watch the movie (they are not responsible for making the movie, I just won a contest and they sent me the movie). Right now the only places to get the movie are at the Indie game the movie website, iTunes and Steam. The movie gives a good insight into indie game development and something worth watching if you want to get into the industry or have a love of gaming.

Long time ago in a far off blog I come up with an amazing idea, but I never followed up on it. So why not repost the idea and see if I will actually do it this time, here is to hoping that it will come fruition

Okay, while I was roaming downtown I starting to think about gaming industry a a whole. The start with pong to the gaming crash, the rise of gaming, and now the mass media blowout day one gaming is having. I thought it will be good to go back and see how things first started. Hence the name of the new section: “The Birth of”. Right now I have a bunch of ideas that I want to start with some of them being:
– Nintendo and Mario
– Kojima and Metal Gear
– Playstation
– Motion Gaming

Right now these will be coming in the future in no real order aside from the fact it is the one I feel like talking about right now.
