Transference: Spoon Gives Goo In A Browser

By Kieron Gillen on May 12th, 2010.

This is an old screenshot. I dig it out, as I'm into retro-chic.

Azazel was nosing at Spoon in a professional capacity, but thought it worth mention because of its gamey-aspects. “It appears to do some virtualization jiggery-pokery which can stream apps to any Windows desktop via a browser,” says he. To which I replied “MOTHERSHIPS!” and he looked at me with the disappointed gaze I’ve learned to suffer. If you want to get the plug-in, it’s here and you can try a load of IGF-esque games. It tried it, and it’s quite literally World of Goo, without installing, after a gap for streaming. I can predict a brave future with less installing in it, but with a gap for streaming. We are quite literally, living in the future.

Music Is My Hot PhysX

By Kieron Gillen on June 20th, 2008.

This is from Natural Motion which is a PhysX motion-thingy
And because I like my shout-out to lovefoxx strap for this piece so much, I’m going to re-use it here. The most influential man in British videogames journalism, Eurogamer’s Tom Bramwell, showed the sheer extent of his influentialitude by making me trot off and actually cover a hardware event. Me! In this case, NVIDIA talking about their near-future plans involving - basically – allowing you to turn your 3D card into a PhysX card via software and even repurposing your old 3D card as a PhysX one when you upgrade. Apparently. They could have told me computers would be able to produce milk and I’d have been equally credulous. Go read here. There are jokes and local colour.
