- The return of the GameSetLinks is here, with the back catalog of the 'Strafe Left' cartoon over at RockPaperShotgun (see left!) still providing some fine amusement, for starters.

Also hanging out in this particular set of links - the state of game education in the UK, innovation at Tokyo Game Show, the IGDA's memorials wiki, the Yaroze revisited, the U.S. 'bootleg' Game Center, and much more.

Go for broke:

Interesting because the Yaroze really wasn't that successful - but it still helped some folks get into the biz.

Ludonarrativism - the blog.
An intriguing new game(ish) blog by 'Eileen Smithee'. Whoever that is. Could be anyone.

Memorials - IGDAwiki
'The Memorials project is undertaken by members of the IGDA's Game Preservation SIG to document obituaries and provide a space for memorials of past developers, players and other figures important to the industry.'

Infinite Lives - Jenn Frank's (revitalized) game blog
Hurrah! Good indie/random cool stuff here.

Wow, a shameless U.S. 'tribute' to Game Center CX, interesting.
