Out of the Blue

Color-blind gamers common. Developer awareness? Minimal (thanks Mike Martinez). Word up. I remember needing to force the colors in two-on-two DOOM deathmatch because I had a hard time telling the marines apart so if the colors were distributed wrong I'd end up shooting my teammate.

Color-blind Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez.
Play: Sprintster.
Stories: Teens Arrested For Targeting Chuck Norris.
Science!: Satellite Abandoned Due To Orbital Patent.
Media: Apple Store Movie: I Love This Man.
Craig Ferguson Auditions for James Bond.
Captain Planet Loses Perspective. NSFW.

I've known colorblind gamers who had a horrible time, and gamers who are deaf or have poor hearing have a miserable time. It is amazing how many games don't even bother with subtitles.
