Google celebrates the PAC-MAN 30th Anniversary. Make sure to play, at least one, before making a search. Use your arrow keys as your joystick. Thanks Google!

Ars Technica posted an interesting article on the gaming industry and how they have all but forgotten colorblind gamers. Not surprisingly, folks who are colorblind manage to play anyway. In fact, I my self used to play Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!. (I could get all the way up to Bald Bull.) Apparently, based on my conversations with other totally blind people, this is not as unusual as you might imagine. There have always been video games which (probably unintentionally) gave the user enough information to literally play blind.
