An Archived Managed World This blog has moved to General Interest
Next-Gen Xbox Details (well, not so detailed details)
At the GDC, evidently someone named “J Allard” talked a little about something called an “XBox” that is rumored (and I emphasize, *rumored*) to have garnered some interest from gangly, pale people who often refer to themselves either in the third person or, perhaps more frequently, as “geeks” (don't even get me started on the whole “nerd” thing, sister!!!!). If you're interested (and I have a feeling some of you out there in my audience might fall into ......

Classic Gaming
I found this site. Most of the games hosted on it are shareware, but it certainly took me down memory lane.

A New Managed DirectX Resource
I just got an email about a new Managed DirectX website that went up. The site is “The Z Buffer”. It has a good number of resources for anyone interested in Managed DirectX, and it looks like ZMan has gotten off on the right foot. He just posted an interview with the lead developer from Tin Soldiers: Alexander The Great, the first known retail game released using Managed DirectX. If you want to stay up on the news posted at “The Z Buffer”, you can find the RSS feed here. Enjoy, ......

Halo Addiction
Well, I'm officially addicted to Halo 2 and XBox Live now. I just finished playing a bunch of games online with Scott Hanselman and some others. What a blast. The last game was particularly fun. We were playing “1 Flag CTF” where there is one flag and each team takes turns as defenders and attackers. The map was Zanzibar. Zanzibar is an incredible map. Very fun and very fast passed. It particularly takes pretty good team work if you want to pull of a smooth win. The game was four-on-four ......

Maple Story
I think all of you gamers should check the game Maple Story out if you haven't already. It's a 2D side-scrolling RPG and is quite the looker. I think that this game proves how a game doesn't need to be 3D and photo-realistic to be fun. Download it and check it out now, for real!

Where are the game development articles going?
I wanted to let you all know that I have started up a website on gamedev called Managed World. That will be the main hosting place for my game development articles. Why have I done this? Well, the experience that I've received over the last year has led to me to believe that while dotText works wonderfully as a blogging engine, and as somewhere to post a couple of articles here or there, it doesn't suit my needs very well when it comes to a game development site. I will still be doing regular blogging ......

Red vs. Blue, meet The Sims 2
Apparently, it looks like the guys behind Red vs. Blue might be starting up a project using The Sims 2. Hmmmm, now that could be interesting. [ Update: You can find the site here: Evidently, they've posted the “intro“ already! ] ......
