Decker's Delight Links (16.Sep.06)

Deckers are the hackers of Shadowrun and the tech-wizards of Neuromancer. Totally un-related to this useful (or, so I gather) bit of info, is this new-look and more verbose version of the Decker's Delight link collection. Try to enjoy it.

The Elderly, being the elderly and consequently the rather grumpy people they are, are concerned with in-game advertising. Their audience gets to comment.

Meanwhile, Australians (perhaps even Aussie elderly fans), namely The Sydney Morning Herald, ask if video games are art (and actually try to answer), only to be shot in the leg by the realization that tabletop Roleplaying (not of the fetish kind) is not. That'll show 'em. Just Roll Dice and Kick Ass.

Thankfully, gaming and quite living legend Brian Moriatry gets interviewed by the good folks of Adventure Classic Gaming, and Gamer C discovers the perfect restroom set-up.

As for the history buffs out there, the Decker (well, me actually; a gnome really) would like to propose the excellent A History of Role-Playing by Steve Darlington and a rare glimpse at the skeletal remains of Looney Tunes [courtesy of Urban Retro Lifestyle].

More fun is to be had by watching Jakanden's brilliant find, a Universal Studios Employee video by none other than Tray Parker and Matt Stone. Oh, and by playing the excellent and free remake of F-1 Spirit. At Independent Gaming of course.

Closing surprise links: this, this, this, this and that.

  4. Horrah for you then ross... Guess I'll be buying one in December, but I'm pretty sure it could wait for after the first price drop... So, I'll have to play with yours then...

    Thanks Tom :)

  5. It is a cool photo. A bit Gieger-ish. But without any sexual repression. Thanks for the link too!

    A shop worker tried and almost succeeded in getting me to place a pre-order for a Wii yesterday, but I resisted the urge...temporarily.

  6. Quite Gigger-esque indeed dear tomleece, but far too normal for the great man's tastes, I'm sure...
