The Smithsonian is gearing up for their "Art of Video Games" exhibit which will feature images, concept art, sketches, and footage from 80 games.

The games have been judged and voted, the art has been chosen, and all that's left is solidifying donors for the exhibit before its grand opening on March 16th next year. For the low price of $10 you can put yourself (or a silly name) in the exhibit's credits, which will appear both online and in the museum. But get this: the more you donate, the bigger your name will appear. In addition, every month a random winner will be chosen from the list of donors to receive a ThinkGeek gift until the exhibit ends in September 2012. Neat, huh?

As of yet there hasn't been a group donation. However, it looks like there are a few interesting names to be seen on the wall. I'm actually a bit surprised nobody's donated in the name of Cave Johnson yet.

"For many of you, I realized $60 is an unprecedented windfall, so don't go spending it all on, I don't know - Caroline, what do these people buy? Tattered hats? Beard dirt?"

Atari: RollerCoaster Tycoon on PC 'completely different' than mobile game

It's crummy that our gut reaction to a new RollerCoaster Tycoon happening was that of concern instead of sheer joy. After RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile was announced for iOS, we learned that Atari has plans for a "PC experien...more
