Weekly Freeplay is a new 1UP feature that attempts to dethrone Gamespy's Download This (discontinued since December 2006) as the best regular column about indie games in general. And off to a very good start, I must add.

I really like the fact that more and more mainstream editors and journalists are turning to indie games even when there are a large number of commercial stuff to write about.

Let's just hope it lasts.

What sucks is that mainstream news sources like that will publish articles listing games us indie fans have known about for months, yet they get all the credit... :-(

Dammit, their RSS feed isn't for this column alonem, but is a general 1UP thing. FAIL.

the only credit they get is with their mainstream readers ;)

if "us indie fans" have known for months, then our credit goes to those who put us in the knows ages agos.

no big deal.
