Yo Dawg, I Heard You Like Breakout, So We Put a Breakout on Your Breakout

July 3, 2013 | Andy Cush

You say you can’t wait for all those barbecues and rooftop parties and Usher-curated fireworks happening on the 4th of July, but really, you’re going to be on the computer. And if you’re going to be on the computer on such a beautiful, patriotic day, you pathetic, lonely loser, you might as well be playing a beautifully meta update on Breakout, the classic Atari game, in which every brick has its own separate, miniature breakout game inside it. It’s really fun–just the thing to ease your mind when you’re staring into the retina-display void instead of eating hot dogs and drinking beers with all those beautiful people you wish were your friends. I, on the other hand, have lots of people who want to hang out with me, and like seven parties to go to. I will have fun.
