10 Cases of Murder Blamed on Video Games – Alltime10s

    This is history, but I do warn you, some of the stories told in this video are pretty gross.   Alltime10s talk about 10 murders that were blamed on video games. It’s important to make clear that despite what these murderers say, with one exception, games probably did not make any of these …

Majora’s Mask “Deku Palace Theme” Ocarina Cover perf. by David Erick Ramos (ft. RebeccaETripp)

  This is such a catchy tune. In my opinion, this is one of the most standout pieces in all of Majora’s Mask and hearing it with an actual ocarina really highlights that kind of medieval court feel the original was striving for. Kudos to David Erick Ramos and RebeccaETripp

Plucking 107 Pikmin Facts – Super Coin Crew

  Super Coin Crew gives us 107 facts about Nintendo’s real-time strategy game, Pikmin. As one of Nintnedo’s more mysterious games, I can’t help but think about how positively indie it feels.

Nothing Makes Sense in Metal Gear Solid V – Cracked

  Cracked‘s Escorts Mission tackles the ridiculousness of Metal Gear Solid V.   I know a lot of people really love this series, but this video sort of pinpoints a few of the multitude of reasons why I don’t like the series.

Stop Defending (Bad) Freemium Games

Yes, another post about freemium. I’ve played enough freemium games to know developers have reached their peak when it comes to innovative mobile games and how to price them. (Sure, I may be wrong, but based on the sameness of every freemium game I would say no.) The barrier to entry is low enough — …

Player Locomotion and Mirror’s Edge – Gamespot

  GameSpot talks about movement in games and about Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. This is an interesting perspective and does highlight the kind of game design that many big AAA games tend to forget about, and that’s giving room for the player to grow and become better on their own, rather than roadblocking them with unlockables. …
