Journey is one of the best pieces of interactive digital art ever

Just had an absolutely lovely experience playing through Journey. What a gorgeous and moving piece of art.

Journey

It is faultless to me. Every single aspect of it is utterly wonderful – every single second was pure joy and marvel! The closest thing to a perfect piece of software that I’ve ever seen.

The Legend of Zelda

Zelda tattoo!

I’m not a tattoo person. Not at all, not even a teeny little bit. This one though, that I spotted on BoingBoing is definitely one of the best ones I’ve seen. Geeky as all hell, but undeniably cool.

Like most boys, I played a few computer games when I was younger. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening was, without doubt, the best game ever on the Gameboy. I hadn’t played a computer game for a few years when I broke my back, but got hold of my old Gameboy and Zelda while I was lying about in hospital. The game was still brilliant.

A quick search told me that a new Zelda, as well as two of the older NES Zelda games (which look crap), was released for the GameBoy Advance last year. Which is just about enough to make me buy a GameBoy Advance. Just about, but not quite.
