I really can’t believe that Super Smash Flash is still a thing, but I guess if you can’t wait for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U this is the next best thing. Not only that, but it has a bunch of characters we know would never make it in to Smash Bros officially, …

Check Out Some Mighty No. 9 Gameplay Footage

While Mega Man might be MIA, I’m glad to know that fans of his games will be getting what is essentially a spiritual successor and that it’s looking quite good. I’m really digging how each power comes with a complete costume change, instead of just a recolor.

Banjo-Kazooie’s “Intro” perf. by SquidPhyiscs

This is quite the impressive Banjo-Kazooie cover. Usually in these types of things you don’t expect recreations of the voices as well but SquidPhyiscs went the extra mile.

Reality Check: The Psychology of Steam Sales

I watched this episode while also looking at my Steam Library and realizing just how big it is and how most of the games I’ve got in there are unplayed. Though to be fair to me, I get a lot of them through humble bundles where I really only want two or three of the …

Polygon: “Gaming’s favorite villain is mental illness, and this needs to stop” by Patrick Lindsey

An excellent article on Polygon by Patrick Lindsey analyzing the portrayal of mental illness in video games.   Ever since I first heard of the Asylum Jam, I’ve just can’t stop noticing how many games use asylums as a setting and mental illness as the thing to fight against. It’s a disturbingly common trope and …

Design Club: Mark of the Ninja – Stealth Games and Visual Cues

The Plunge: Kim Kardashian Hollywood Game

Kim-Kardashian-Hollywood

Yes, I decided to postpone living a healthier life, feeding the homeless, and saving animals from shelters to enter the world of a Kardashian — or a simulated one (minus Ray J). For those who don’t know/care, let me update you on the situation. That mobile game by the name of Kim Kardashian: Hollywood is …

Design Club: Portal and Tutorials Mechanics

I feel like there are some people out there who truly believe that tutorials are bad things. Like, the player should just wade through the near infinite combinations of buttons and mechanics to figure out how to progress. I know of one in particular who seems to believe that areas meant to teach, reinforce, or …

My Date With Captain Falcon (Feat. Markiplier & Nikasaur) by RandomEncounters

If Super Smash Bros. has taught me anything is that Captain Falcon is one weird dude. He actually kind of reminds me of Gaston in this video. Except with a mariachi band.
