Yes Murray. Yes! I am tired this morning. For the right reasons. Last night I stayed up to watch Andy Murray completely decimate Roger Federer to win Olympic gold! Yeah! But anyway — video games. Let’s get back to (virtual) reality.
Well, I guess we can continue to talk about the Olympics for a little while. Particularly since there were a couple of cool video games stories that sort of revolved around Olympians. This one is my favourite — remember the gymnastics competitor who put together an amazingly choreographed performance set to a Zelda medley? Well we have a great guest blog from her sister. Amazing stuff.
And also, in that same vein we have this story. How a stupid controller helped this guy’s brother win a silver medal. Brilliant.
Remember QWOP? How could you forget. Seems like the creator of that game has built a new one. Featuring unicorns. EA is suing Zynga. Wow. And this is how Max Payne’s miserable life still looks cool.
