Howard and the Webthang here at OnceUponAtari.com wish to express our sadness over the loss of a truly cool guy and most valuable asset to classic gaming. Bryan "KidHype" Smith, producer of Retrogaming Radio, will be missed by a huge community spread throughout the world. Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family and close friends.
The Classic Gaming
And HSW was there! Yes I know I'm late in reporting this, but a good time was
had by all. Anyone who has pics or bits to pass on about CGE 2004 (and HSW)
I'm willing to post them. Catch me on the contact page.
The Warshaw Awards 2003
December 19, 2003 by: Jason Bergman (loonyboi)
"Although I love this industry to death, it seems like every year,
someone, whether it's a single individual, publisher, or developer,
stumbles. Hey, it happens to everyone. So, with my tongue firmly
in my cheek, I'm proud to present the Warshaw Awards for 2003.
I get to the awards themselves, a few words about the person these
awards are named after. Howard Scott Warshaw was one of the
great developers back in the Atari days. He was the author of two
excellent titles: Raiders of the Lost Ark and the classic Yar's
Revenge. Sadly, he's mostly remembered for his third game: E.T. for
2600. Yes, Scott Warshaw, is the author of the game that is considered
by many to be the worst of all time. Some people even blame E.T.
for single handedly causing the industry crash that followed its
release (although that's a serious exaggeration as far as I'm concerned).
Just like Howard, there were plenty of bad moves made this year.
Here's a list (which is no doubt far from complete) of some of
the worst missteps of the year."
