This series of articles is an attempt to play through The Canon of videogames: your Metroids, your Marios, your Zeldas, your Pokemons, that kind of thing.

Except I'm not playing the original games. Instead, I'm playing only remakes, remixes, and weird fan projects. This is the canon of games as seen through the eyes of fans, and I'm going to treat fan games as what they are: legitimate works of art in their own right that deserve our analysis and respect.

Technical Difficulties

Let me be honest. At this point, I'm having trouble getting articles together. I'm having trouble getting my life together. Between power outages, computer crashes, whole articles vanishing instantly into oblivion when I'm a few sentences away from completing them, exploding lamps, paperwork, and the like, I'm getting far less work done than I had hoped.

With that in mind, I'm going to be taking the pressure off of myself by taking leave for another week. I suspect rather strongly that no one will be here when I get back. It's difficult, at this point, to rationally justify continuing at all. But, well, I have these drafts put together. We'll see where things go.

Of course, I could always use this down time to post a few guest articles. If anyone is interested in throwing some material together to post, let me know. It would be far better than leaving this space dead, and there are a number of people that I've been wanting to hear from. But, until further notice, stay tuned for new articles on Sunday, September 11th.

  1. I'll probably still be around. I would offer some work as a guest, but unfortunately have little time to actually come up with and write anything. Best of luck hope this sticks around.

  2. It will. Having a break is letting me work at my own pace a bit more. In fact, I might start building breaks like this into the schedule, since I'm putting so much work and thought into the entries.

    Plus, things around here might not be completely dead... I've got a few updates I want to make, and some guest posts. So, we'll see how things go.

    In short, I'm feeling like much less of a gloomball about the whole thing now.
