Dear Esther, I found this gun...
Knowing it was essentially workshopped via life experience makes it even better.
I think people react to and interpret art and entertainment in a variety of ways. If film theory is a legitimate discipline, then why not video game theory? It certainly doesn’t apply to every game, and sometimes symbolism can be a real reach. I’m not claiming that, you know, Tetris is about man’s Sisyphean struggles…
Here’s the thing, I’m happy there’s no virtual console this time around.
The thing that really surprised me is that Nintendo actually gave presentations and talks at the GDC this here. I know the IGDA used to have the hardest time getting Nintendo to open up and work with them. I also recall hearing how Indie development going back as far as the original Wii was a much more difficult…
FYI, the big sign says:
That story of the kid at Chuck E. Cheese was exactly me (except it was Pistol Pete’s Pizza). I knew what I was doing and thought I was awesome. Then got to a certain level (3-1 I think?) with a literally impossible-to-pass horizontal pit; full-speed running jump wouldn’t even get you close. I could never get past it,…
So, while this version technically came out after the home version, its important to note that the NES did not get a wide US release until late 1986. So, for people outside of NYC and LA, this could have been the first version they ever played- it was for me. I got my NES Christmas 1986 after the nationwide launch (I…
Good Morning Kinjaers!
Jason have you considered doing an update on your 12 Successful Kickstarters That Never Delivered article? Out of curiosity I looked through a few pages and there are some actual updates. Might be fun to check it out.
I’ve played this game a few times in its earlier stages a year (or two?) ago. It’s impressive (for a free game), and gives you the option to not keep or brand your servants as slaves, essentially you build their trust for you, so that they want to stick around, rather than just be ‘slaves’ in the traditional sense…
I saw someone do this on Reddit, and made it my goal to do it myself today.
Still way to young to have passed on. I haven’t been on an Xbox platform in years, but still appreciate the work he put in for the industry and the gaming community. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.
I met him at my first E3 back in 2011. Fun guy. Rest well.
Lol that last one- “To pull off this cool long jump move just press [Trigonometry] and VOILA!” Time to spend the next hour trying to do these, thanks!
Every Time....walking away in tears.
Love seeing Doc break character. A very sweet moment.
I love watching streamers play with randos for this reason. For every 10 games you’re teamed with people yelling obscenities, it’s worth for that one where you can tell the person feels like the luckiest person in the world being teamed with a streamer they recognize.
I met the Doc once and he is such a nice guy, although he is a character actor I don’t think this is fake
Yeah you did write a book about Final Fantasy
