NPR is slowly but surely becoming the best "mainstream" media outlet for intelligent and well-meaning coverage of videogame news. Their coverage of Ian Bogost's Cow Clicker phenomena was fantastic, and I still regularly link people to their short piece on the perspective of a young female gamer.

A couple of days ago they posted an interview with Tim Schafer on his past work with LucasArts, his recent success on Kickstarter, and more. This is the kind of thing I'm hoping to do with Sup Holmes? (which is on hiatus for the week due to E3 taking over everyone's lives). Alex and PJ's mix of genuine fandom and enlighted inqueries make for a fun and informative piece. 

For those concerned parties out there, Sup Holmes? will be back next Sunday with Zoe Quinnzel, developer of the upcomign text adventure It's Not OK, Cupid.  It should be awesome.

Review: CounterSpy

CounterSpy's stylized Cold War re-imagining is on point. It looks good, with its spindly spy running, rolling, and leaping like a jumping spider. It sounds good, with its jazzy soundtrack that reminds of James Bond.  Unfortunately, the rest of it feels half-baked. more
