The Video Game Art of Fumito Ueda
“As video games have become more and more popular, the medium’s defenders  have developed a misguided tendency to point to the ways that games are  useful, practical, functional. I do not know if Ueda’s games will make you smarter, or improve your vision, or promote world peace.  I very much doubt, in fact, that they will do any of those things.  Emphasizing the ways that games are tools for instruction—whether  intellectual, physical, or moral—is an unfortunate residue of their  origins as children’s playthings. Abandoning it will be the sign, maybe  the last one, that this new form of storytelling is all grown up.”

Aaaand… The Battlefield 3 Scores Are In

With, as of yet, a Metacritic score of 93, Battlefield 3 has been praised by critics almost universally. However, there are some slight variations in the overall meat of the reviews.

For example, many critics have felt rather differently about the campaign. Game Informer’s Dan Ryckert claims that it has the best single player campaign since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. However, Peter Eykemans from IGN, and B. Ring / M. Sharkey from Gamespy claim that the campaign is nothing more than a halfway decent distraction from the absolutely stellar multiplayer.

Regardless, the main idea is the same. Battlefield 3 is a damned good game.
