All indie games are 33% off on Steam this weekend, many of which have been featured here at DoSu. Pro tip: buy AudioSurf!

Wonderful video here, an obvious homage to “Where The Hell Is Matt?“. It’s hard to believe that it has been ten years since I first played EverQuest. I spent about four years in that game before moving on, but it’s still the most memorable gaming time I’ve had, and I came out of it with many friends with whom I still play games to this day.

Lots of new info and some in-game footage of Alpha Protocol in this episode. It’s sounding like everything I hoped it would be: like Mass Effect, but with spies!

Speaking of Mass Effect, it looks like PC will be getting the sequel at the same time as the Xbox 360 this time around. In 2010.

Dude, yes!

Internal mock-up from June 2006 of what eventually became DoSu 1.0

Internal mock-up from June 2006 of what eventually became DoSu 1.0

It has now been one year since the start of what might be called “DoSu 3.0″. The original, started in 2006, was mostly a forum with exported news. Version 2.0 was a video slideshow of sorts, again using forum software. For this version we ditched the forums for blogging on WordPress, with our first official post on January 13th, 2008.

Now that it’s been a year, and to celebrate the anniversary of our most successful version, we’re ready to launch a new forum. We weren’t satisfied with any old copy-and-paste forum with bloated features and hard to style tables, so we went with the sleek and customizable Vanilla boards. It helps focus conversation and community on a small site such as ours.

So, if you want to talk democratically about games, comics and various forms of digital art, we’d be delighted to participate. Just start a discussion over @ yonder forum:

DownloadableSuicide Forum

Furthermore, we’re currently re-evaluating what content and coverage we create and how we present it. (as if we don’t make constant changes all year long) If you want to offer some suggestions (or encouragement) now’s a good time to do that.

Silly man
