Geek Links of the Week

If you’re going to make a big mistake in a news story, don’t make it in one that geeks may be reading (which would be all of them but let’s just let people have their stereotype for the moment). [Poynter]

Indie developer Nathan Fouts doesn’t like seeing quick, cash-grabbing ports on the upcoming (kinda already released) Ouya. He’s gone as far as given porting tips to devs for things that they need to fix in moving from mobile to console. [Indie Games]

Short on content this week, Kotaku is doing a Mass Effect Week. So here’s BioWare founder Dr. Greg Zeschuk talking with GI about gaming, development, the gamers and, of course, EA. [GamesIndustry]

Today on the sister site, I look at why the upcoming console war could be a massive failure for all three manufacturers. Spoiler: It has nothing to do with the likes of the Steam Box, Ouya or GameStick. [The Lowdown Blog]

Uruk-hai swords are useful for more than just slicing through humans. [Apparently Fish Need Bicycles]
