Game On!

Video games are an art form. Don’t believe us? Ask the Smithsonian American Art Museum! The savvy curators out in Washington are gearing up to open The Art of Video Games on March 16. In between panel discussions with video game pioneers, photo opportunities with costumed Koopas, and busy gaming stations, the 40-year evolution of gaming will be traced with video clips, stil limages, and actual consoles. It’s a big move for our favorite games, from the Atari VCS to the PS3, from the comfort of our couches to the biggest of galleries.

Thanks for the photo, Nim.

Tickling The Ivories

The thing about voice acting is that it’s more dangerous than you might think. Sam Daly, Tim’s son and occasional Office guest-star, is here to tell us all about it.
