Expiration DateI love the Team Fortress 2 short movies. They're like little Pixar films......just with violence, blood, dismemberment and a general disregard for health, safety and human life.Usually they're quite brief, but the latest to surface is a whole 15 minutes. Positively feature-length!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLlLQ3LmZWU.It's making me want to revisit those TF2 "auxiliary units" I designed a couple of years back.
Inspiring GamesI’ve been asked to list which video/computer games I like. I actually compiled a list a while back, with the intention of writing something slightly lengthier than a journal update.The list is not so much what I think are good games – games age and some of them now play like a dog – but they are titles that most inspired me. They either introduced me to new concepts or changed how I saw things.I won’t go into detail on why each was important to me (that’ll take too long to write!) but if you’re familiar with both my work and these titles, you’ll probably spot where I picked up certain things from.(Listed in the order of which I first played them)Cops and Robbers (C64)The Last Ninja (C64)Spy vs Spy 2 (C64)Lemmings (Amiga)Sonic the Hedgehog (Megadrive)Sim City (Mac)Prince of Persia (Mac)Diggers (Amiga CD32)Monkey Island 2 (Mac)TIE Fighter (PC)Alone in the Dark (PC)Darkstalkers (Arcade)Myst (Mac)Ultima Underworld (PC)Tomb Raider
