…that I’m writing for a really great site now. Seriously, I’m really proud of and excited about USgamer. Please tell your friends about it, and if you have time please kick off some kind of crazy Ponzi scheme to spread awareness of the site. We’re off to a solid start, but I want it to be a long-term success.
Here’s some stuff I’ve posted over the past few days:
- Super Mario 3D World: Four Players, Four Opinions – Like a four-player session of the game, it’s a chaotic mishmash of conflicting ambitions!
- Why Did Atari Fail in Japan? – The latest entry in my retrospective series on the Japanese console launches of summer 1983. It’s the best part of this series so far! You should read it. I’ve spent a ton of time researching this topic.
- How Final Fantasy V is Saving the World, Four Jobs at a Time – Of interest to all you folks doing the Four Job Fiesta this year.
In other news, I played Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage? for the heck of it after E3. It was fun, if short; the best Zelda II ripoff since Battle of Olympus. I can see why our pal Tomm Hulett hooked up with WayForward. I had never watched Adventure Time before, but I liked the game enough to check out a few episodes. They were good enough that I want to watch… all the episodes.
