The Museum of Modern Art in New York will be exhibiting twelve games next year and, as well as Minecraft, Eve Online is among them. "This came as quite a surprise to us," said Executive Producer Jon Lander. "The curators who assessed this saw
the beauty of Eve, coupled with the fact that it's a universe that
is completely lived in and shaped by our players and almost to a
minimum by ourselves. They feel [it] has almost transcended to an art form."
Guild Wars 2 is on the horizon. It feels like an eternity when it was first announced back in 2007, but here we are today on the verge of the games launch. I've followed the game since its announcement to present day, falling slowly in love with it. So in love in fact, that I decided to pre-purchase the collectors edition back in April. Finally after four months, a pleasant chap delivered a big brown box to my door. Cue amateur photography.
Minecraft has a sort of fuzzy, low-fi charm to it that makes taking static screenshots of a build a bit troublesome: you'll never get amazing lighting, sharp lines, or anything approaching gritty realism. For that you'll need a renderer.
