  • Dan Fornace, creator of Rivals of Aether writes: After 8 years of working in fighting games, I’ve accepted the fact that no matter how “easy” you make your game, pros will absolutely demolish new players. Well-known fighting game Youtuber Maximillian talks about the casual appeal of Guilty Gear -STRIVE- and expands a bit on the above: I think there is definitely a serious learning curve when it comes to fighting games. They're typically difficult for the uncommitted casual gamer to get into. There's a lot of stuff that needs to be learned: inputs, commands, matchups, systems, etc. I mean, I've

  • Weeknotes 2020-12-13

    Time passes yet again. I think I have to get used to not having much personal stuff to report in the weeknotes on certain weeks (aside from the watching/gaming parts), especially given the pandemic where I'm at home 90% of the time. Speaking of the pandemic, the UK started vaccinations last week, and the US FDA approved the Pfizer vaccine as well, so hopefully this is where things start to turn around. Sadly, it may be a while before vaccinations get widespread, especially here in the Philippines. I'm hoping things clear up by mid next year for us here, but

  • So I got a Nintendo Switch last month. One of the first games I had gotten for the system was the recently released Super Mario 3d All-Stars. I had really been wanting to play Super Mario Odyssey instead, but my brother had a copy of that game that I could borrow later, so I decided to get 3dAS first, as I had never really played the 3 games on the collection. I've mostly played the 2d Mario games prior to this, with the exception of 3d Land (3DS) and 3d World (WiiU), although both of those games were closer in

  • Finally finished Divinity Original Sin 2. Not sure if I should do a review since due to character choices and party comp, I feel like I've only scratched the surface of the content, and it might take a couple more runs to alleviate that. But it's a great turn-based RPG!
