1. Kris Ligman writing for Critical Distance:

    Next week, Critical Distance will be running a special edition of This Week in Videogame Blogging in honor of Black History Month. Similar to how our Women’s History Month roundup worked last year, this special will exclusively feature work by and curation from black writers.

    We strongly encourage you to submit links for this roundup — including your own, if you have something you’d like to share.

     


  2. On this week’s Critically Speaking podcast: Without action there can be no stealth. Or is it, without stealth there can be no action? Either way, sneaking, hiding, and gathering information in order to get the upper hand on NPCs or other players is a fascinating and thrilling experience when done right.

    Used to be the one of the rotten ones
    And I liked you for that
    Now you’re all gone, got your makeup on
    And you’re not coming back  [x]

    Inspired by the beautiful indie game, Gone Home.

    Yep. Can’t not reblog this.

  4. On this week’s Critically Speaking podcast: special guest Ryan Payton of Camouflaj joins us for a discussion on his studio’s new iOS game, République, as well as the Kickstarter process that led to its development and release.

    It’s a good one. If you haven’t listened to Critically Speaking yet, this would be a great episode to get started with.

    RIP Games for Windows Live, we hardly knew ye. On second thoughts, we knew ye pretty well, and we hated your malodorous guts - good riddance.

    See my previous comments. Good riddance indeed.
