Yeehah, some more GameSetLinks, headed out by the fascinating-sounding Sense Of Wonder Night at Tokyo Game Show this year - I'm finding out more, and in the meantime, Western indies should consider applying.

Also in this particular batch - the real geographies of Azeroth, the making of Stanford's machinima archive, how to win (or lose) money playing casual games on WorldWinner, the trailhead for the Resistance 2 ARG, and lots more.

Tiny teeny beanies:

Interesting clarification via Nick Denton, that '...his young writers are paid more than other young writers at other print and web outlets.' Broadly true - of course, there are no old/experienced writers needed, but that's true elsewhere too. Not picking on Gawker, promise.
