1. haha, awesome game. Took me 56 turns. Can’t go wrong with 50 Madonna and 50 M.J.

  2. God, I love games with a trading mechanic. I know Ruby and I’m in a game design course, so I guess I should probably try making a free market engine, but then I’d have to read about economics… And then I’d know how the sausage is made…

  3. One of the little things I really liked about the old Scorched Earth (which still, to this day, no one seems to have made a note-perfect clone of that keeps the game the same but updates the goddam code to work well on modern boxes with online play, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM, THIS IS OBVIOUSLY A THING TO DO) was the option to have market-driven prices for weapons from round to round. Weapons that seemed kind of shit in an all-else-equal situation suddenly became interesting once the comparative price of the good stuff skyrocketed in the face of heavy demand. Loved that.

What Is Gamefilter?

Gamefilter is a community weblog based in spirit and intent on the great work of Matt Haughey and his staff at Metafilter. It's all about sharing links to interesting stuff on the web, but with a narrower focus on gaming-related links -- good stuff that other people might not have already seen -- and talking about them.

Anyone can join for the low low price of zero dollars, and once you're a member, you have the senses-shattering power to post new stuff right from the front end of the site, and talk about that stuff in the comment threads. You don't need an account to read GFi, but as well as giving you The Power To Post, membership also lets you
