Today we had an impressive assortment of incoming freshmen check out the archive in a big tour, about 60 people in total. It's wonderful to see so many new students taking an interest, but we just had to take pictures since we haven't had that big of a crowd in quite some time.

A piece appeared in UM's Michigan Today about Sid Meier's Game Design Boot Camp, which took place earlier this Summer. In it, we discover what gave him the idea for the boot camp, which companies were involved, and a bit about how it was structured. We also learn that not only was Sid Meier's son Ryan involved (a UM graduate), but also his mother, who attended the event as well.
Here is our list of the top 10 games played in the archive for the month of May. A couple of RPG classics made the list, with a Disney game even making an appearance towards the bottom of the list.
To go along with our recent redesign of the archive bulletin board, we've updated our featured game section to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Street Fighter series. So far, all of the series that we've featured are celebrating 25th anniversaries, so we'll see how long we can keep it up.
