Geek Links of the Week

Steve Haske puts his thoughts about the current path of the games industry into words far better than I ever could. For the record, I agree with a lot of what he says here. [Medium]

You may not know the name Nate Wells but you know his work. He started as an artist on Thief and System Shock 2 before moving up to Art Director for BioShock and BioShock Infinite. Yeah, he’s kind of a big deal. [I.Eat.Games]

Despite getting good reviews, including from this outlet, Retro/Grade was a commercial failure. Now, creator Matt Gilgenbach is working on a new game drawing on the mental health issues that resulted from the financial failure of his game. [Polygon]

Some developers are impressed by their sales on the Ouya. Given some of the Kickstarter model impressions, any sales would be impressive. [GamesIndustry International]

How big is Google? Their web traffic is bigger than Facebook, Twitter and Netflix combined. [CNET]
