Sonic Is All About Earning Your Momentum – Really Freakin’ Clever

  Really Freakin’ Clever‘s Joshua M. brings up some really good points in this video, but I don’t necessarily agree that Sonic the Hedgehog 1 is “clever” for making it about “earning your momentum”, at least, over any of the other Sonic games (minus a few, obviously). At it’s heart, the Sonic games have always …

Cracked Breaks Down Why The Order:1886 and a Bunch of Other Games Are Basically All the Same

  I don’t argue with the idea that there are “prime games” that everyone else looks at/rips off, but I do disagree with what some of the prime games are in this video.   But when really looking at it, games have to build off each other. I think in some regards we can say …

Grand Theft Auto V Broke Tons of Records and Some People Wanted A Piece of That – Did You Know Gaming

  When you’re making a lot of money, it’s not a surprise that people come after you. I can’t believe how many hopeless cases there were against Rockstar. Though the one about the music in the game might be valid…I wonder if there was some sort of off the record agreement.   This video is …

PBS Game/Show Says Your Choices in Games Don’t Matter and I Think That’s A Terrible Way of Thinking About It

  Somehow I forget to discuss this episode, which is a shame because I have some rather strong opinions on it.   My main issue with it is that “choice” and “agency” are being conflated here and in games, those are not the same thing. But before I get ahead of myself, I think it …

GameTrailers Gives Us a Refresher Course in Master Xehanort and His Evil Plans in the Kingdom Hearts Series

  Despite how convoluted and complex it has become, I really love the story for Kingdom Hearts and I really like Xehanort as a villain. It’s definitely going to satisfying to finally conclude all the madness that has Kingdom Hearts.   It is really sad though that Master Xehanort’s English voice actor, Leonard Nimoy, has …

Super Mario 64’s “Wing Cap” Jazz Cover perf. by insaneintherainmusic

  insaneintherainmusic has kind of an interesting take on the Wing Cap theme from Super Mario 64. It feels really…melancholy. Sort of weird for such a whimsical and empowering song but I still really like it.
