Be Kind Rewind

(Note: Please be gentle, this is my video game automobile racing diary and although it only began with Automobili Lamborghini and Beetle Adventure Racing I truly do love racing and the games it takes form in and this is my abridged diary.) ...

 
 
 
 

A Time to Destroy: Need for Speed Undercover

When this month's theme was announced I was quick to call to mind a few ideas, but sadly none about game principles themselves. It was mostly bile towards game developers, topics such as promises (Fable 1, Fallout 3's 200+ endings) and sat...
