Astoria, Queens, played a vital role in early motion picture production, but video games have taken over the neighborhood’s Museum of the Moving Image this month. The institution’s new exhibition—Indie Essentials: 25 Must-Play Video Games (thru March 2, 2014)—features some of the most innovative games created by independent designers and developers since 2002.
I’ve been to a few video game events and I have to say they are a lot of fun. It’s the perfect opportunity to test your skills against a group of friends or other gamers. Plus, onlookers always cheer you on. This Thursday, August 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center, the construction toy company K’NEX will celebrate the addition of Mario Kart™ Wii Building Sets (for ages 6 and up) with in-store events for fans.
