Links

When we aren't working, we are playing games. When we aren't playing games, we are browsing the web (wait, we do that at work as well). Anyway, here are some of the sites that we find indispensable in our daily lives.

Once Upon Atari

When asked, "If you could bring only one DVD to a deserted island, which one would it be?" My answer has consistently been, "Once Upon Atari". Why? Because every time I watch it, I am reminded of the, "good 'ol days". The classic VCS (2600) titles that are burned into my brain forever: Pitfall, Yar's Revenge, Breakout, and Space Invaders just to name a few. I am further reminded of how lucky I am to be developing software in a higher level language with near limitless amounts of memory. Now, if you will excuse me, I have to go fight some ducks (err... dragons) in Adventure.

Metacritic

Don't want to be single sourced for video game reviews but hate navigating to all of the video game sites? Metacritic is the answer. This aggregator collects reviews from all of the major sites and publications to present a single score. You can also drill into individual reviews. It also works for music and movie reviews!
