Last week's top stories, now in handy haiku form photo
Last week's top stories, now in handy haiku form
by Darren Nakamura

This past weekend I was up late and feeling loopy, and some haikus about a Flash game nobody cares about fell out of that state. Struck with inspiration, I thought, "Why can't all news be digested 17 syllables at a time?" Thus, the video above was conceived.

Here are the stories mentioned, in case you missed them the first time and would like more information than a three-line stanza affords.

There! Are you feeling a little more zen now?

Is Peter Molyneux done talking to the press?

If you pay attention to video game news and the media, then chances are you know the name Peter Molyneux for more than the games Populous, Black & White and Fable. His name has become synonymous with over promises and wha...

Nearly two years later, Peter Molyneux still hasn't delivered for the Curiosity winner

At this point most hardcore gamers know not to trust Peter Molyneux. He makes grand promises that his games will push the envelope or change your life in some way, and in a few cases, outright lies. Then he has the balls...

The co-founder of Devolver Digital has some words for Peter Molyneux photo
The co-founder of Devolver Digital has some words for Peter Molyneux
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Yesterday, Destructoid ran a story in which designer Peter Molyneux shared his belief that the indie craze will disappear. Specifically, he said that what we're seeing is just a cycle, and that "it won't last."

Many people disagreed with Molyneux's sentiments, including Devolver Digital co-founder Mike Wilson. In an open letter sent to Destructoid, Wilson wrote that indies are making games "because they love it. They aren't competing in secrecy but rather openly collaborating, lifting one another up and inspiring one another. Gamejams!!! And while many of them are doing incredibly well financially, that's not the point, or certainly not the main point. Which we think is what is quite different than the past, at least to our eye."

Read on for the full letter from Mike Wilson.

Theme Park is now on GOG.com

Whilst looking at the newly-created page on GOG.com for Theme Park, I was shocked by the revelation of its original release date of 1994. Was Bullfrog's seminal management sim really that old? In fairness, looking at screensh...
