Game Player Hired as Football Manager

FC Baku is one of the football teams of the capital city of Azerbaijan. The club just chose the new manager: an unknow guy of 21 years of age. Vugar Guloglan Oglu Huseynzade has never trained a real team before, he was hired for his knowledge of Football Manager, the videogame.

Considering the fact that videogames nature is getting closer and closer to real nature, this makes sense from a next nature point of view, but I have to say this is still a brave decision for a football club. We will follow them in the next games. Go Baku!


Super Mario Cloud

Cory Arcangel hacked and modified a piece of hardware’the cartridge on which the game “Super Mario” is stored, or rather, was stored to produce “Super Mario Cloud” This is because, by disconnecting some contacts on the circuit board and putting in a chip for which Arcangel wrote his own program, superhero Super Mario disappears, together with all the obstacles over which he has to jump. Only a few comical, white clouds remain in a blue sky. Arcangel took away all the narrative elements of the game and everything that made it dynamic.
