News Post: The God Lords

Tycho: I have coming up on fifty hours of Minion Masters, which may not seem like much - as I understand it, there are much larger numbers - but when you take into account the fact that a round of the game takes a few minutes at most, it's an incredible amount of play density. It's a deckbuilding strategy game similar to Clash Royale, except where Clash Royale maintains the MOBA concept of Towers, you're essentially going face with every unit you send over - hindered only by the u...

In 1995 I wrote an article in Wired about the Museum of Bad Art, which showcased art found in thrift stores. I'm glad to see the tradition of curating thrift store arts and crafts is still going on at MoBA. And here is an unrelated but similar Instagram account with many examples of mindbending works of primitive art. It also includes a lot of creepy products and other ephemera, which adds to the entertainment value.

From Game Room to Boardroom: 4 Video Game Skills that Translate to the Workplace

By Patrick Soulliere II Video games have long been seen as a distraction or an escape: a way for men and women to disassociate from the real-world and battle virtual villains. With any stereotype, there is a lack of knowledge or understanding, and the stigma shadowing gamers is no different; often they’re perceived to be lazy, shy, and introverted. However, a recent study conducted by Elsevier proves quite the opposite, pointing to extracurricular video game habits as a key component in developi...

Riot Games Issues New Company Values In Wake of 'Bro' Culture Accusations

An anonymous reader writes: Riot Games, the maker of the enormously popular League of Legends multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) PC game, has issued a new set of company values on its web site. They're the result of some soul searching after the company was accused by many of its own employees last year of having a sexist "bro" culture. The company said that these new values replace the company's Manifesto from 2012 and reflects conversations with more than 1,700 Rioters about "what we want ...
