Old-School RPG

Old-School RPG

It's been a long time coming, but the decision has been made - Brenda Brathwaite (my fiancé) and Tom Hall (my good buddy) are teaming together to make an Old-School RPG that harkens back to the 80's and 90s great RPGs we all played and loved. They plan on making the game at our company, Loot Drop, Inc. located in San Bruno, CA. Check it out [...]

Xcode For Beginners

Xcode For Beginners

I believe anyone wanting to learn programming should start with the basics, and that means the C language. It also means no graphics so the focus is on the language itself and understanding just the language, and not an IDE or environment like Flash. You can do plenty of good learning just by using text mode. Here is a step-by-step walkthrough of [...]

Latest Update & DOOM Post-Mortem

Wow, it's been a long time since I wrote anything here... thank you very much, Facebook. Most of my updates happen over there, but not really anything important or game history-related. I use Twitter as well, but don't do much. I'm just very busy running my game company, Loot Drop, and forgetting to update my site. At GDC 2011, Tom Hall and I [...]

Duke Nukem Forever Returns

Duke Nukem Forever Returns

I've been asked several times by people on Twitter what I think about Duke Nukem Forever having an actual due date; that the game might actually come out. Well, I think it's awesome for several reasons. First, because I've been a huge Duke fan since Duke Nukem 3D. I absolutely loved that game. My memories of playing DN3D are as awesome as my [...]

Gamesauce #2!

Gamesauce #2!

There's a new magazine in town for game developers, and its name is Gamesauce. The first issue had an interview with Trip Hawkins. I was fortunate enough to be interviewed for the second issue by Brenda Brathwaite and answered some of the more interesting questions I've been asked thus far. There are some other great articles inside, such as [...]

30 Great Gaming Geeks

30 Great Gaming Geeks

How great is it to be ranked #5 on a list of the top 30 "gaming geeks"? Pretty great, if you ask me! Ahead of me are Steve Jackson, Shigeru Miyamoto, Reiner Knizia and Will Wright. That's a pretty awesome group of people. There's a down arrow on me, and an up arrow on Will Wright, suggesting that I used to be ranked higher than #5. Wow. Thanks, [...]
