Sup Holmes & Vander on Papo & Yo, minorities, and more

This week on Sup, Holmes? we welcome former EA developer and current Minority Media Inc. creative director Vander Caballero to the program. Vander's first game with Minority, Papo & Yo, bravely takes on issues that most other developers would shy away from. We live in a time when our mainstream culture still sees videogames as the stuff of children's fantasies, not appropriate for dealing with serious issues. Vander and his team made a game about the fantasies of a child who is processing some very serious issues, including coping with the addiction of a caregiver. It's a subtle, subversive, beautiful, and affecting game that's well worth talking about. Read more at

4mm Thin new TV at CES!

One of the top showstoppers at CES was LG's 55-inch OLED display. The image quality of the 3D set is fantastic, but that's not what had crowds snapping pictures one of the real show stoppers
was this tv that the set is only 4 millimeters thick, as it does not require side or back lamps. This big, beautiful TV only weighs about 17 pounds and has a contrast ratio of over 100,000,000 to 1.

The Humble Voxatron Debut

I have bought every single humble bundle from their site "Pay what you want. If you bought these games separately it would cost around $25 but we are letting you set the price. All of the games work great on Mac, Windows, and Linux. Be the first to tackle Voxatron -- a voxel-based, old-school-gone-new platform shooter. Pick up your trusty pea gun and shoot your way through more than twenty challenging areas. The included Voxde level editor grants you the ability to create mind-blowing new environments to share with the world. And, as a customer of the Humble Voxatron Debut, you'll receive access to all of Lexaloffle's future updates to Voxatron. Dive into a twisted basement dungeon in The Binding of Isaac. Get ready for a delicious brew of randomly generated, Legend of Zelda-esque dungeons; Robotron-esque run-and-gun; and action-RPG progression. The recently launched Halloween update adds a ton of content -- a new chapter, new bosses, new enemies, new items, a new character, a new ending, and more! Learn new tricks with tetrominoes in Blocks That Matter. In this award-winning, charismatic, platform-puzzler mashup, you play as the Tetrobot, a plucky robotic drill that assimilates blocks of varying materials and properties, like sand, wood, stone, obsidian, iron, and diamond. After absorbing blocks, you’ll need to recreate them in various tetromino-shaped patterns to solve puzzles and traverse levels. You can support charity. Choose exactly how your purchase is divided: between the developers, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the Child's Play Charity. Also, if you like this deal, a tip to the Humble Bundle itself would be much appreciated!"

New GTA Will be the "Largest and Most Ambitious" Yet

Rejoice, ye claustrophobics. Rockstar has confirmed that the Grand Theft Auto series is returning to the fictional state of San Andreas, and promises that the upcoming GTA V will be the "biggest and most ambitious" game in the franchise. Specifically, the game is taking place in the city of Los Santos - the starting city from GTA: San Andreas - and its "surrounding hills, countryside and beaches." The press release from Rockstar makes no mention of San Fierro or Las Venturas, the other two cities present in San Andreas, and they don't appear to feature in the recent trailer. It seems GTA V has a narrower scope than its well-regarded PS2 predecessor, but this doesn't necessarily mean the game area will be smaller. GTA IV technically took place in the same city as GTA 3, yet the environment was several times larger thanks to a current-gen redesign.
