It's that time of the week where I need you to help me do my job: letters for the Reply to All mailbag! Also known as "The Best Way to Start Your Saturday." (I'm still tweaking the slogan.)
This week's Conversation Kindling(tm):
- iPad iSchmad. Forget whether or not you're going to buy one -- what kind of games would you want to play on it if you had a free one? What kind of games would you design for it, if you had such talent? Me, I would make a two-player combat-based Flight Control, where you draw attack runs for offense and aim anti-aircraft guns for defense. I'd also make a 2D version of that holographic missile game James Bond plays in Never Say Never Again.
- I'm thinking of stalking Patrick's digital self as he investigates PlayStation Home, interfering with his carefully planned social experiments. Good idea?
- Anyone else already falling behind on 2010 games? I need to quickly finish the first Mass Effect before tackling part 2, I've got No More Heroes 2 in my bag ready to go home, and enough of my contemporaries are talking positively about Darksiders that it warrants a look. Granted, it's my fault for rewatching the entirety of a certain television show before...
- OMG ONE MORE WEEK UNTIL LOST OMG. Also, you should be watching Archer on FX. It's the new Adam Reed show, whom you might know as the guy responsible for SeaLab 2021 and Frisky Dingo.
