Guess what happens next week? Yep. Black Friday. Lucky for us, or unlucky for us – it’s all in how you look at it – we’ll be on our second of three Thanksgiving dinners with family, and stuck inside a house full of food and spirits instead of braving the crowds stampeding for a deal. However, if you’re the brave sort, or just willing to go through anything to save a buck or twenty, Target and Sears have a few gaming-related sales going on you may be interested in, such as: new game releases for $37, console bundles, and older releases for cheap. Joystiq has the fliers and a rundown posted here and here. More Black Friday deals, specifically from Walmart, Microsoft, Best Buy, GameStop and Toys R Us, can be found through a previous post.
Valve should be getting in on the mix with a Steam sale soon, and we suggest you get your bank account padded ahead of time in preparation.

The shorts post is rather long today, so we’re going to go ahead and race to the finish with it.

We’re all just working for the weekend, ya know. Let these shorts do some of it for you so your clicker fingers can be saved for something more useful.

It’s St. Patrick’s Day. Likely you are a bit sloshed. Quit waving your shillelagh around and read up on the little things.

Game designer Tim Schafer has posted on his blog that creative games will be made no matter how poorly they sell.
Basically, stop fretting.
Here’s the long and short of it:
“Unless it’s your money on the line, game sales don’t need to keep you up at night. The market and game executives do not dictate what games get made – they just dictate what gets made easily. They affect what can be made without a fight. As long as there are creative people out there willing to fight for ideas they care about, then there is nothing that the market or anyone else can do to stop them.”
