That Shelf's long look back at our favourite games of the past decade. Here's our look at the last 10 years in gaming.
The debut title from Toronto's Reptoid Games is an entrancing effort about digging up old bones.
Eric and Jon recap E3 and can't agree on anything. Jon also regrets a few of his recent life decisions.
This year's press conferences were the best in years because they emphasized games rather than technology.
We talked to Community creator and Harmontown subject Dan Harmon for 90 minutes. Here are those results.
The recent sale of Mojang indicates that the industry is now focused on the next generation of players.
And now, all the game news that's fit to print. Eurogamer is embroiled in controversy, PAX goes down under, Apple unveils the iPad Mini, Zynga lays off 5% of its work force, and Square Enix licenses the Unreal 4 engine.
The Shelf rings in the new year by waxing nostalgic about 2010's best and worst games and movies, and talk about what we're looking forward to in 2011. Will and Zack are joined by Emily and our old friend Lucas for this best/worst of ought ten show. The episode also has the distinction of being the only podcast you'll ever hear successfully segue between Gaspar Noé's brutal Enter the Void and Pixar's heartwarming Toy Story 3.
We here at the Shelf decided that there was no better way to ring in 2011 than by compiling a list (A list at the end of the year?! What a concept!) of our favourite games of 2010. In an industry regularly dominated by triple A titles and billion dollar publishers, this past year proved to be a breakthrough of sorts for indie gaming. This is not to say that there weren't great blockbuster games this year - there were plenty - or that indie games weren't a forced to be reckoned with in years past. 2010 merely showed us all that good games are good games, period.
Jeff and Will are joined by new contributor Jesse and our friend Emily for this super-sized edition of the Dork Shelf Podcast. It has been a while since our last show, so we have a lot of catching up to do. We recap Fan Expo and the Toronto International Film Festival, talk about the games, films and comic books that have been entertaining us on the commode, and some of the many amazing dorky events happening in Toronto over the next few weeks.
