In more Chrontendo related news, I'm posting all the old Chronsega episodes on Youtube in preparation for Chronsega 7. More Chrontendo episodes will follow in the near future.
I'm sure you guys have been following the game news lately, but there seems to be some upsurge in the vast, unwashed masses of videogame fans making a noticeable impact on the decision making processes of videogame companies. There was that whole "Operation Rainfall" which seems to have produced a US release for The Last Story as well as Xenoblade. Bioware is now supposed to be preparing a response to the fan outcry over the ending of Mass Effect 3. Also, you have perhaps seen the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter thing? Proving the Double Fine adventure game was not a fluke, fans ponied up a million bucks in a few days, just for a sequel cultish 80's computer game. I'm sure all this caused thousands of Sega enthusiasts to suddenly start dreaming of a Shenmue 3 Kickstarter.
Anyway, it's just odd that as democracy seems to be waning in larger public sphere (increasingly restrictive "anti-terrorism" laws, crackdowns on internet usage, etc, ) it has started flourishing in the world of electronic games.
I've updated the links recently. A couple interesting sites have been added. In terms of insane chronogaming type projects, we have The RPG Consoler, a fellow who is playing every console RPG (as the name would seem to imply.) So far, he is up to the first Dragon Quest. These things usually end in a very tragic type of mental breakdown, so wish the poor fellow well.
There has been some traffic coming in from a blog called Why Modern Video Games Suck, which turns out to be not as curmudgeonly as it sounds. He actually likes lots of modern games! But he does find old school gaming principles endearing, so the blog is definitely worth a read.
Chronsega 7 is mostly recorded, so expect some news soon.
