I am a huge fan of what they are doing with BFV. Everything is built for playability and fun, but there is a deep history to be told. Strategy, understanding weapons, and tactics will be more powerful than raw twitch nerves. The pacing of the game is frantic and releasing different parts of the world over time just adds to the delight of booting this game up.
The Internet Archive, who acts as a library to the past, was able to get clearance to allow free access to a ton of old DOS games. An interesting stroll down memory lane.
“There are different variations of Mumbley Peg. One version involves two opponents who stand opposite from one another, feet shoulder-width apart. The first player takes his pocket knife and throws it at the ground, so that it sticks into the ground as close as possible to his own foot. The second player take his knife and does the same. The player who sticks his knife closest to his own foot wins. A player could automatically win if he purposely stuck his knife into his own foot. What can we say, this was a time before Xbox 360. Kids needed something do.”
Let’s see who remembers this one?
The game I created for my kids this Christmas is complete. It was a huge success and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them open, explore and play the game. Thanks to all who submitted art work and helped make this project a huge success.
