Tom vs Erik

February 8th, 2008

Tom Chick and Erik Wolpaw roast Universe at War in this month’s Games For Windows magazine. Fucking brilliant.

ERIK: Tom then tells me that Universe at War is part of the “serious games” movement, that what the universe is at war against is poverty and social injustice, and that the whole thing is basically a cooperative city-planning game.

Wolpaw has been one of my favorite writers since the OMM days, seeing him target UAW seriously made my day.

Toot toot.

It’s nice having the guy who made the game on hand for harassment purposes.

Just wait till I get to the fireberry caves.

Please don’t rob my house.

Mr. Crecente has been collecting photos of developers’ gaming setups, and posted the whole batch today. Petroglyph is represented by Mike Legg, Adam Isgreen, and myself.

My setups, in immediately viewable form:

Office.

Home.

Home office.

CES. Still not a gaming convention.

The biggest thing happening in the Gaming Showcase was probably the ECA booth.
