I just got done watching the documentary from Microsoft called “Game Over”, which is the story of the Atari 2600 and the E.T. cartridge being buried in a landfill in New Mexico. Wanted to write about it a bit, because several parts were pretty powerful for me.
A few months ago, I posted a video showing some video capture sessions from a game I was involved in the creation of, “Rise of the Triad”. The response to that was popular, and then I never delivered any more of them. Well, tonight I have some more to watch. :)
