“Game Play” Performance Art Show Closes This Week

Do you like video games?  Do you like Performance Art as well?  If you do, the Brick Theater in Brooklyn New York has a Performance Art festival for you.  “Game Play” is running now through Sunday the 25th, and has a smorgasbord of video game-theme productions.  Over the last week I had the chance to see several of them. 

Theater of the Arcade was written by Jeff Lewoncyk and Directed by Gyda Arber; it consisted of five short plays, each telling the story of a classic video game, but written in the style of a famous playwright.  It was the epitome of absurdist humor. Imagine if you will Asteroids as a tense workplace drama about spaceship pilots in a high-pressure competition right out of Glengarry Glen Ross.  It’s a clever show with inside gags for both gamers and theatre fans, highly recommended for both demographics.

So, StarCraft II’s Multiplayer Scares You?

It’s finally on the cusp of release and considering what gave Blizzard’s original StarCraft its lasting legacy, its multiplayer, there’s the understandable fear of being completely trounced once you enter the online arena. So, I’m here to help with some basic steps that apply to every race in the game. I was once like you; scared, helpless and so intimidated by the multiplayer space that I almost didn’t try out the beta, but here I am, placed in the silver league before the beta closed down just two days ago. If I can do it, so can you. Remember, this is basic, foundation-type stuff. This article only really helps the utterly helpless and/or/and probably/and absolutely retarded.

Razer Naga: Building a Better Mouse

There are a lot of mice using the “More is better” philosophy in their design, boasting more buttons than a person has fingers.  Many of these mice make vague claims of benefits to gamers due to some new design feature.  At first glance the Razer Naga appears to another such gimmicky, over-complicated monster.  With a whopping 17 buttons the Naga immediately provoked skepticism in me, but it eventually won me over.

Premium Starcraft Peripherals

Starcraft 2 is coming, and as expected, a tidal wave of expensive hardware is coming as well to coincide with Blizzard’s upcoming RTS. Premium mice and keyboards are being created by Razer, who also worked on a special World of Warcraft mouse as well. The mouse is called the Spectre, and it’s running for $79.99. The features you get for the price are 5 buttons, multicolor LED lights that change dynamically for performance feedback, as well as looking nice. If you want to get sensitivity, the Spectre has that as well, with a 5600 DPI laser sensor, that is “tournament ready.”

Day of Defeat: Source Now On Mac

Continuing Valve’s initiative to take over the world, they’ve released Day of Defeat: Source onto Mac. All the expected features, like cross-platform play, are fully present and accounted for, making Valve objectively the kindest group of people in the known world.

Expect some ridiculous sale to follow, maybe even a 75% $2.50 slash they did during their summer sale barrage. You have to wonder just how little it costs for them to spare the gigabytes of bandwidth if they can do this with such reckless abandon every week. Anyway, expect a dozen new users filling up the servers. Yep, I’m not letting go of this joke, because it probably isn’t that far from the truth.

APB: One Week Later

It’s been a week since All Points Bulletin went live to the world in all its chaotic glory, and in that time I’ve ascertained new opinions on the lobby system masquerading as an MMO. I wish I could say these opinions were of a positive nature, but they aren’t. To express the level of disappointment I feel now compared to last week would require some form of Vulcan mind-meld mixed with a cocktail of Xanax and Valium to prevent you from killing yourself.
