Put together by Rami Ismail, Meditations.games is a collection of games by over 350 developers. Each day is a new, unique game, and only available that day.
Its a great concept. I’d love to see the analytics by the end of the year, and just how many people will still be playing this.
The original Doom turns 25 this year, and to celebrate, its co-creater, John Remero made a new chapter to the original game, titled Sigil.
Sigil, according to the website, is an unofficial 5th episode to the game:
I wanted the levels to feel like they belong to the original game as if they were a true fifth episode. There’s more detail in the levels than episodes 1-4, but not overly so. I believe that people playing Sigil will recognize my design style, but see new things I’m doing becau

Good. Employers should be able to fire employees based on their political beliefs, no matter what they are. Political beliefs are a chosen ideology, unlike race or gender. If your beliefs do not align with a company you work for, go somewhere else.
But if the loudest voices in the Call of Duty “community” act like an angry mob instead, guess how the entire world views Call of Duty?
While the majority of gamers don’t act this way, they are often times the ones most heard. It’s also why the gaming community can’t be taken as a whole so often.

One of the best responses so far:
The truth is I always act as if I didn’t have to worry about profits, had all the money in the world, and no technical limits. Maybe that’s why my games are considered “niche,” why they go over budget, and why my programmers have to work so hard. So basically, I’d be doing exactly what I’m doing right now!
