Perhaps it was driven by availability, but growing up, I very much enjoyed platforming games. Super Mario Bros 3, Mega Man, Duck Tales, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; heck, I even played the crap out of Barbie for the NES, because my family owned it, so I played it.

But lately, I've found I'm drawn less and less to platforming games. I bought the remastered version of Duck Tales, and played through about half of it. Shovel Knight came and went without me finding any interest in it. Even Mighty No 9 doesn't interest me, at all, when I loved the game series it was modeled after.

I've been trying to figure out why, and it's finally occurred to me.

Roguelike/Roguelite games have ruined Platform games for me

I now realize that I no longer want to have to memorize levels. I don't want to have to practice the same jump over and over.

I want to master the mechanics of a game, and have the game develop around me. I want a new experience every time I play. I want to try different powerup combos. And I want a full game play through each time I sit to play.

I've been spoiled by Roguelike games!


Here's a fun look at 2 games Mighty No. 9 and 20XX

I used to love the Mega Man games, so it was fun seeing both of these *not* Mega Man games side by side and discussed.

I'm not crazy about the news, but now we know that the NX and Zelda will launch in March 2017. Nintendo still won't say much about the NX, but Zelda will be the focus at E3.


Well... this is an interesting car commercial...

Is anyone still using Miitomo? It was a fun app that seemed to burn bright and quick.

When I first downloaded it, it took a couple days for others to install and us all to find each other, but it seems like no one is using it anymore.

Part of its charm was in the questions it asks you, but I wonder if that's also part of its downfall. If I have a random thing I want to post to a social network, I go to Twitter and/or Facebook and post it. Miitomo doesn't work that way, so I'm not as inclined to use it when "inspired."

What are your thoughts? Will Miitomo continue its initial popularity, or will it dwindle as people try it and then move on to something else?


I've still not played the game, but I enjoyed Rich and Jack's discussion of it. Spoiler alert: They're not crazy about it lol


Rich and Jack are playing Helldivers and accidentally invite a couple random players (another funny moment is https://youtu.be/LwdfSPCkP1g?t=1h17m when the first player joins and surprises Rich and Jack) to play along with them.

In the main video, one of the random players has his wife start scolding him apparently for being too loud, and for being 30 and talking to people on a computer game. The funny exchange starts at about the 7 min mark. smiling_imp


I was not aware of this game show, but as a 90's kid, it would have been my favorite, easily.

If you've not seen it before, I recommend you check it out. It's pretty "rad."

At least check out the theme at the beginning.

Word.

(Also it includes all the commercials, which are an amazing 90's time capsule as well)
