“Destiny and Victory” – Fan Art by Nagunkgunk

How Controllers Control Games – Game Maker’s Toolkit

  Mark Brown of Game Maker’s Toolkit created an excellent video that coincidentally really captures my thoughts on controllers how people perceive them. A lot of games benefit from building on the games before it and creating this sense of game literacy. That literacy becomes so ingrained in gamers that any deviation feels like a …

The Game Theorists talks about the history behind Sonic’s moveset in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.   This is actually conflicting information compared to what I’ve read before which stated that Sonic’s moves were based on virtua fighter, since he was more like Sega’s representative as opposed to just his own game’s. …
