Hello! I'm Tom. I designed a game called Gunpoint, about rewiring things and punching people, and now I'm working on a new one called Heat Signature, about sneaking aboard randomly generated spaceships. Here's some more info on all the games I've worked on, here's the podcast I do, here are the videos I make on YouTube, here are some of the articles I wrote for PC Gamer, and here are two short stories I wrote for the Machine of Death collections.
Okay, you know – perhaps you don’t – how I hate all console games and don’t even really play Guitar Hero unless someone makes me? And how I’m more resistent to SingStar than anyone who isn’t Scottish? I am now officially excited about Rock Band. From Wikipedia’s soundtrack list:
So Electric Version is kind of a weird choice since it’s probably the worst song they’ve ever done, but that’s still better than pretty much everything else the human race will ever achieve. The New freaking Pornographers are in a mainstream game! I think this is the first time I’ve ever been able to check both the “Games” and “Music” categories in my WordPress dashboard.
The Jet song is just hott, and it takes a lot to make me spell that with two t’s. If it had Maxi Geil’s Makin’ Love In The Sunshine I would buy the goddamn console for it. And a TV.
The_B: Is it wrong for me to enjoy AYGBMG on my housemate's Singstar?
fearian: If you dont want to buy a console and a TV and a very expensive game, like me, you could do what Ive done and get hopelessly addicted to frets on fire, the brilliant open source guitar hero-esque game for windows, linux and mac.
you can use GH controllers, play multiplayer with a mod, and the best part, is theres about 1000+ songs for it if you know where to look...
(well theyre on the wiki actually...)
