Super Mario Maker - Bully Bill
https://supermariomakerbookmark.nintendo.net/courses/FADE-0000-0127-110B Bully Bill We’re finally getting to levels that I feel are pretty good! Here, I wanted to have a very high-up level, with multiple paths, and I wanted to focus on another one of my fav...

Me and MMOs
I just went through a gigantic MMO bender, followed by some Life Changes, which is why I have been totally inactive on this blog. I never considered myself an MMO person. I played Runescape briefly. It was unfriendly and grindy. I was never tempted to play ...

What I'm Playing - 3/13
I'm not doing very well at keeping a weekly cadence up on these posts... Sunset Overdrive This isn’t a good game. Well, it’s okay. There are moments where the writing and cutscenes are genuinely funny. But by the end of the game, it relies so heavily on bre...

Puzzles and Dragons - A History
It's impossible to talk about many mechanics present in the App Store today without talking about Puzzles and Dragons. As far as I can tell, this is the prototypical monster collection + fusion game.   P&D launched in February 2012 and according to the deve...

Kickstarter
On rare occasion, I back video games on Kickstarter and wanted to lay out some of my criteria for sussing out any red flags a video game Kickstarter might send up. First: I determine if the game interests me at all. Most of my preferred genres (RPGs, city b...

What I'm Playing: 3/24
Murdered: Soul Suspect I loved this game. I had really low expectations going in. Reviews mentioned a terrible stealth aspect, which seemed like the sort of frustrating gating element that makes me give up on a game. In practice, the stealth wasn’t horrifyi...

What I'm Playing - 2/17
Forza Horizon 2 I was never able to write about one of my favorite games, the 2012 SSX reboot for Xbox360/PS3. The furthest I got was a single link to Tom Chick’s review and a link to this song from the soundtrack. The only sentence I wrote was, and I quote...
