Holy crap there’s a new Sonic game coming out that actually looks good!
Sonic mania is a throw back to the classic 16 bit Sonic games on Sega Genesis. Its 2D side scroller with pixel art sprites and it looks great. Seriously take a look at the trailer. Can you tell I’m excited?

Mobile Fighter G Gundam is getting an HD Blue-ray release box set! But as far as I can tell, it’s only in japan. The episodes are split into two box sets each costing 34,000 yen, that’s about $312 US dollars if you import it! The first one comes out Sept 23, and Nov 25 for the second one.
They need to give the series the same treatment in the states with the option for English dub, subtitles etc. and a reasonable price. I hope they decide to re-release the series in the states again because if your like me and …

Disclaimer: This is in no particular order, because I couldn’t pick just one game to be number one. I love too many to choose just one to call my favorite so instead I’m just going to talk about my favorite games ever. This is a good post to read to get to know me and my preferences for games.

Grimstorm is a game you can download and play right now for free.
This is what I’d imagine Dark Souls would be like if it came out in the 80s for the NES. It’s heavily inspired by the Souls games as you can tell by the first enemy you’ll encounter. The game is hard, but it is fair.

So I just beat Dark Souls and I feel kinda proud of myself. This is a notoriously difficult game and now I can say that I beat it. I had the patience, the skill and the strategy to win. This is a big deal for me because I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not the greatest at video games. I make lots of mistakes and I’m far from perfect but believe it or not I think that’s why I was able to finish the game. Yes its difficult and punishing, (nothing like loosing a large amount of souls to a cheap death, getting one shotted, falling off something, wonky physics) but I was always able to just try again, or try another way, or form a new strategy, or look one up, if I was stuck. There is no penalty for how many times you die and try again. Normally I don’t like re doing levels over again, or being sent back to the start, like old school games, but for Dark souls… I didn’t mind it. It was the appeal of the reward and the feeling of accomplishment that kept me going. So I wanted to write down a few of my thoughts on it and also Demon’s Souls (Which I still haven’t beaten yet, working on it now).

Graphics vs. Gameplay
From classic text only games to modern realistic interactive stories, the video game industry has grown immensely since its inception. But, what makes a good video game? A good video game is one that is fun and entertaining. Developers achieve this by designing fun and challenging game play, not fancy graphics alone. Graphics play a major role in games, especially with modern games, but a game will not succeed on pretty visuals alone.
