I had completely forgotten about this, until I saw it on twitter today. Fitting that I’d be working on a GBA mod while the entire line turns 20. Happy Day.
DNPWWO - Further Corruption?
I’ve had a rather fruitful day of brainstorming. After much pondering and research done into GBA programming/hacking I’ve decided to hack the hardware instead of the software. In the spirit of circuit-bending musicians, I’m going to mess with the pins for the LCD and controls by attaching copper leads from the pins to the underside of the GBA SP case. When users hold the SP,...
Where's the code?
Corruption. Hacking. Modding. Glitching. Bending. These all describe in some way or another what I’m thinking of doing for my master’s piece. There are many examples of people taking a commercial product and bending it to the point of breaking in order to make art. Many of my favorite artists/musicians do circuit-bending/glitch work to try to expose the essence of the...
(Does Not Play Well With Others) that’s a title I’m throwing around for what I keep thinking will be my thesis project. give me your opinions, alsjeblief. at the same time, I’m curious what power others think lies in a title? what is the un/importance of titling work? even naming something “untitled” is naming. people will still bring their own connotations to...

Meaning and Games
corvuse: Forget narratology. Forget ludology. If you must, you can even forget anthropology, history, religion, and media studies. But if the preceding two quotes don’t proove to you that game mechanics themselves communicate meaning and are therefore the raw stuff of stories… then there’s simply no convincing you. Quite. This is why games are such a unique medium. They are interactive in a way...
Gears of War 2 feels like Tetris: The Shooter.
I really haven’t been absent, just using other tubes. Watching the Corrupted Mario video (below) again has me thinking of some so-called gamic-art. There are numerous examples, JODI’s MAXPAYNECHEATS ONLY, made using Max Payne; Tom Betts, QQQ (most of the links are broken). There is also, most relevant to the Corrupted Mario videos, is Cory Arcangel’s Super Mario Cloud. All of...
