Picks of the Week: Week 14

Posted on April 11, 2011 by


A great mix of posts this week on a variety of topics—let’s dive straight in and explore!

Psymonkee took an itemised approach to ranting which looks like it might have been therapeutic. Anyone struggling for something to write, consider trying this for yourself!

Simon Reed posted not only a revisit of retro classic Chips Challenge for the Atari Lynx, but also managed to get some words from the original developer in there too—well worth a read.

Catherine Woolley spent an evening in the company of renowned game designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi and shared her thoughts on the experience.

Richie Churchill returns to us after a brief hiatus with some great photos of his boat trip and a surprise on the riverbank.

Our resident daily-drawing artist Beth Anderson captured the rickety feeling of this old gate wonderfully—love the description, too: “held together with chicken wire, rope, hope and nails.”

And Ian Dransfield shows that Ciaran Watkins better watch his back, as he clearly has an in-depth understanding of the world of advertising.

The clear pick of the week, though, is once again Campfireburning with this wonderful post from Day 100, appropriately enough, about landmarks. Food for thought, for sure.
