  • Indie games worth looking into

    The Boston Festival of Indie Games is a convention for indie games that I had pleasure of going to, so here are my brief impressions of the indie games I played while there. I wasn’t there for long, and I procrastinated far too long on this, but... More
  • My Game Announcement Wishlist

    E3 is coming, while the show has certainly decreased in importance majorly, it still invites hopes and dreams for new games. So here's my list of unconfirmed games I want to see announced. Will all of these be announced? Hell no. But I can dream.... More
  • Nintendo is more then Mario

    5

     

    I never considered myself a fighter in the system wars, mostly because of it's stupidity and insanity. But I do find myself defending what I like from the crazies, like with Nintendo. Nintendo is one company with a fandom that greatly annoys me, for the exact same reasons the haters annoy me. And this is because of one shared, hypocritical misassumption. That Nintendo only makes Mario and should make something else, and that Nintendo doesn't do third party games.

     

    The truth is, Nintendo has done exactly that. Take a look at the 3DS eShop, plenty of original games by Nintendo with no Mario in sight. Hell, I don't even know of a game like Sakura Samurai. The 3DS eShop alone has plenty of examples against the common assumptions about Nintendo. Mighty Switch Force, Pushmo, Crashmo, Dillion's Rolling Western and Liberation Maiden would like to remind you of their existence. And on the retail end we have Code of Princess, Rhythm Thief and the Emperors Treasure, Samurai Warriors: Chronicles and Ghost Recon Shadow Wars.

     

    And on the Wii U, it already has the Cave, Little Inferno and Trine 2 up on the eShop. And retail wise, we have Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper and Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed. Various multi platform games would also like to talk with you (and Mass Effect 2's port to the PS3 and the news that caused). Also, we're very early in Wii U's life, it takes a long time to actually assemble a good library, and it still has a better game library then the Vita (though it's better then most say). The long list of good quality games on the horizon is proof enough the library is going to get big. And now, let's talk about the most unfairly bashed console of all time.

    Well, I did it. I actually managed to pull this off. I didn't miss a single day. This challenge has helped me as a writer, I've gotten better at just writing things down. So I figure that the best way to show this is to have this final entry dedicated to my writing itself. So I presen

  • 31/31 Day 30: All animated things are not for kids

    If there's one assumption I hate, it's that some things are "Just for kids." It's why I loathe the average Nintendo hater, and there's sadly many cases where all Anime is assumed to be for kids. And there's the stupid assumption... More

    I've given a reviewing a shot a couple of times, but I haven't written any in a long time. A discussion in the Comic Book group here led to me trying to write a review of a Comic Book, so here's my review of Uncanny Avengers #1.
