The Wii U has exceptionally poor sales compared to the original Wii and even the far less successful GameCube.
Is there anything Nintendo can do to bolster sales?
A lot of players, and developers, look at grinding for levels/experience as a lame tactic to increase a game's length. While this is true, in a lot of cases,
it is not always absolute.
In the last tutorial we started learning some GML basics and how to make a new enemy. This time around we will finish creating the 'Strafer'
enemy and add health values to it and our other enemy.
This is part four of my 'Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD' Hero's Mode Three Heart Challenge. This time around I'll be quickly visiting Hyrule, The Forsaken Fortress, and
the Savage Labyrinth. Can anything slow me down?
When I saw a trailer for a new Secret of Mana game I was incredibly stoked in mere seconds. Sadly that elation vanished as fast as it appeared when I noticed that
'Rise of Mana' is a game only for mobile phones. What does this mean for true RPG fans?
So there I was in a Blockbuster looking for something new to play. My mom didn't want me to rent a game I had already tried so she pointed out one she said looked nice.
Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee. I did not want to get that game, but my mom forced me to get it anyways. I had no idea how lucky I was at the time.
I want to talk about the unfair situations women of all ages face when playing games in a male dominated community.
Do you know anyone who has, or have you yourself, faced these events?
People tell me all the time that I should make a game for mobile and rake in all the free money. The thing here is that most games that actually turn a profit have lots
of time and energy put into them. It isn't that easy.
In an industry scared of risk and in love with producing sequels how is one able to find something
fresh? Luckily independent game developers are able to take the risks that giant companies can not. Allow me to introduce, Recettear.
This is part three of my Three Heart Challenge. Today I'm visiting 'The Tower of the Gods' in the hopes of finding a true challenge. With no bottles filled with fairies will
I be able to conquer this dungeon? Or will it prove to be too much?
MediEvil came out back in 1998 and has you playing
as the raised skeletal corpse of Sir Daniel Fortesque. This game combines dark fantasy and humorous dialogue to create a very unique experience. It's time to raise
this old title from the dead and discuss what makes it so enjoyable.
This time we will begin creating a new enemy for our player to fight. I'll be teaching you a lot more code with the Game Maker Language this time around. It may seem daunting at first, but it's actually very simple. It may take a
little time to sink in, but once it does you'll have acquired a very useful skill.
You think you know about Little Mac? Get serious kid. I've examined every frame of this newcomer's video to reveal the
secrets behind his gloves. You want to step in the ring with this champion? Then you've got a lot to learn.
I absolutely love the fact that Nintendo managed to make a multiplayer RPG game where you can pit your trained parties against one another. Turn based RPGs are not well known
for their multiplayer activities. Cool as that is I'm mostly going to be complaining about Pokemon in this article. I do love to complain.
I just want to wish all my family, friends, and awesome readers a wonderful Valentine's Day! For my Australian readers, or those of you who read this in the future, I hope you
have already enjoyed Valentine's Day! Perhaps you guys would like to know how I celebrated this special day? Yes? I'm pretty sure you were thinking yes.
Natsume has been cranking out Harvest Moon games since the original for the GameBoy in 1998 to the newest installment HomeTown Story for the Nintendo 3DS in 2013.
So they know what they are doing don't they?
Just before the holidays I spent a good chunk of time fighting off genocidal ninjas and writing an article called 'Are Games Crippled By Easy Modes?'
This article sparked a lot of awesome discussion and I'd like to share some of it with everyone.
