So yeah. Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, part one is finally out and in my hot little hands. I’ve been playing it on and off for the last couple of days. It’s really fun. I’m pleased to note that Gabe and Tycho’s juvenile/erudite humour is in full force.

The thumbnail on the left is of my player character. It’s a scarily good likeness.

Old-Skool Web Design Drives Me Nuts

The Dallas Observer’s website is astonishing. Looks like a classic, blocky, CSS-positioning-driven website. But it’s all tables, baby. It’s just trying to look like it’s a CSS website. Mad.

Which is a round-about way of saying that this article, about the world’s best Halo player is pretty interesting.

A question

Posted Mar 16, 2004 in Games Comments 0

So to all my loyal readers I ask: are there any computer gaming sites around anymore that aren’t horrid, ad-infested content-free wastelands? I used to read a lot but it seems to have completely lost focus in the last couple of years. (Computer Gaming Online, if I recall) is gone. What gives?

Even better, are there any good gaming review or analysis weblogs around?
