Audio Interview with Alex Frazer and David Buckley

Project: Blue Room is a single player mod with an ulterior motive. It wants learn about how you play. Well, the mod itself doesn’t, but the authors do.

So, what better way to figure out what’s going on than to kidnap and interrogate them? Actually, there is a better way: call them on the Internet and chat with them, so that’s what I did.

Be warned, we talk for nearly 90 minutes, all of it fun and interesting.

If you have any questions, please post them here and you might get an answer.

Poll Question 312 – How do you feel about the concept of paid mods?

WOW, what an interesting time we live in.

I’m not going to go into all the detail of the recent “paid Mods” event because I am sure you have been following it and probably know more about it than I do. However, I am going to talk about how it could affect me and this site.

If it is new for you, then I would suggest LambdaGenerations three excellent articles: 1, 2 & 3 and INtense!’s ModDB post as good summaries of different points of view.

May 2015 General Chat

As I sit here in from of my PC it’s raining. Great way to start May, don’t you think?

I’ll be creating a Poll Question about the recent paid mods fiasco, so please avoid that topic for now.

Besides that the rest is up to you.

Let’s talk about what you have been reading. I’ve restarted Rudy Rucker’s ‘Ware Series (no spoilers please) and I’m not sure I ever finished the first one even because about a quarter the way in and I don’t remember anything.

This Month’s Sci-Fi Movie

In June 2014, I started to use a poster from a classic Sci-Fi move as the background for the post image.

This month it is from The Space Children (1958). An alien intelligence aborts the launching of a rocket with the help of a bunch of children.
