If you haven't heard by now, Satoru Iwata died. :-<
Yesterday I played a short-beginner-solo game of Killing Floor to get some screenshots of the Patriarch for my most recent blog entry. Then, when he actually showed up, I panicked and killed him before I got the chance to snap any picture.
I might have to pick up a 3DS between now and 2016, just so I can play Metroid Prime: Freedom Force.
Nintendo's thing wasn't terrible, but I wish we'd had a little bit more for Wii U. I mean, Starfox looks decent, but we already knew Xenoblade and Mario Maker were coming. Other than that, not a whole lot to interest me. Oh well.
So to sum up XBone's conference: A whole bunch of the same old stuff that we already knew about. A cinematic trailer for a new IP that doesn't actually show any gameplay. The most interesting stuff came from the indies. It was pretty much the perfect snapshot of the state of gaming as a whole.
I think I just saw Nathan Barnatt on a State Farm commercial. What ever happened to Keith Apicary, anyway?
Want to know what I thought about Xenoblade Chronicles? Check it out over here: http://theconducers.doodlekit.com/blog/entry/3848544/xenoblade-chronicle...
Well, it took my a very long time (one hundred and forty some-odd hours) but I just beat Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii. What a game!
So! As of yesterday, I'm happy to report that I now own a SNES. I only have two noteworthy games: Super Mario World, and Clay Fighter. Other than the obvious first party titles, what are some good games I should keep an eye out for?
For the last few weeks, it seems like there have been about four hundred new visual novels on Steam every single day. I have nothing against the genre itself and have enjoyed a couple in my time, but the sheer volume of them on the front page of Steam is starting to get a little overwhelming.
