This great Twitter account collects safe rooms in games

A new-ish Twitter account is collecting the save rooms, bases, shops, quiet zones, and other "safe rooms" from games (well, safe-ish) - places which I'm always happy to visit while playing, and glad to see pop up in my Twitter feed. The Safe Room is almost a safe room itself, a pleasant moment on that punishment of a website. Who doesn't hear the calming Resident…

This perfectly horrifying Twitter bot combines erotica and video games

The problem with Twitter, people always say, is that it's too good. Everything on Twitter is just too wonderful. If only someone could somehow make Twitter horrifying enough that you instinctually threw your phone across the room upon loading the app, we could get our lives back. Friends, consider this problem solved. Game designer Liz England has created @vg_erotica, a Twitter bot which combines romance…

Game Box Art Recreated With Cute Japanese Stock Art

I don't know what a 'meme' is anymore. First they used them for science, then memes escaped a lab as a virus in a monkey, then Internet turned the viruses into jokes, and then the virus infected every other form of joke. (I think, at this point, we're either safe or have ourselves become memes?) All I know for certain is that delightful recreations of…

A Twitter CYOA? Choose Your Own Escape!

Oh, Twitter. Apparently you are┬ánot content being a medium that encourages us to waste our time tweeting jokes at podcasts in the hopes they'll mention us on the show, or to contribute our voices to the thunderstorms that are hashtag wars in full swing. Now you want to be a gaming platform too. Or such is how I choose to interpret the appearance, earlier this…

PSA: Where To Find Rock, Paper, Shotgun Around The Web

Rock, Paper, Shotgun is more than just a website. It's the last line of defense against the humdrum of everyday existence. It's an ever-expanding collection of wonderful, videogame-y things to help you remember why you love this medium in the first place. It's sort of a blog, which is a subcategory of website. It's also a Facebook page, Twitter account and YouTube channel, which maybe…

GSC: “Stalker 2 is currently in development”

A tweet from the usually rather quiet GSC Stalker Twitter account has assured us that the game is still being worked on. It's the first word we've had on the development of game since January, when we heard that they were seeking funding for the project following the studio's collapse. That they've lasted until now, and that they're speaking positively, is encouraging, but I don't…

RPS On The Twitters / King’s Bounty $2.50

We interrupt our regularly scheduled "staring aghast at irresponsible news media" to draw your attention to the RPS Twitter account. When we set it up a couple of years ago, we didn't do a whole lot with it and thus didn't promote it much. We reckon we've got the hang of it now though, so please follow @rockpapershot to get as-it-happens tip-offs to our bestest/silliest…

Iconographic Violence: Dot War

It's the social web game du jour! It's hilariously goofy. Basically, Dot War allows you to take 2 twitter account icons and wage a war against one another, by a process that transforms the icons into incy soldiers. It's a little like Gratuitous Space Battles in that it's the layout of colours in your icon that determines which mix of the various soldier types you…

Peeping Toms: Twitter As An ARG?

Oh God, I'm writing a second post about Twitter in as many days. One of you rabid anti-social networking types is totally going to come and kill me for this. (As a side-note, the craziest angry-reader threat I ever received was, in response to an admittedly hurried review of the Star Wars: Empire At War expansion pack, a claim that he was going to find…

RPS Inevitably Jumps On Latest Bandwagon

As John revealed yesterday, as part of a transparent attempt to raise his own follower count (coughhere'smecough), RPS has a Twitter thing. We're so impressionable. In fact, we've had the account for a while, more to bag the URL than anything else, but being stupids we haven't thought of how to best leverage this exciting new web 2.5 sociopathic networking micro-blogging brainfart technology as yet.

Wholesale Fail Whale: Developer’s Twitters

Barnett pointed me at this, via twitter, appropriately enough. Sam Houston is maintaining a list of twitter feeds of people in the industry who don't mind it being public. And what a list for cheery stalking. For example, we can swiftly find out that Ragnar Tornquist's favourite comfort movie is Lost in Translation, George Broussard's wondering where the Pizza has got to and Valve Software…
