Well it’s about time! Nintendo will be teaming up with Japanese mobile developer DeNA to develop smartphone games featuring Nintendo IP. They will also be developing a new multimedia service that will replace Club Nintendo and work across Nintendo devices, smartphones, tablets, and computers. Full story here.
Sorry I’ve been absent for so long. I’m studying abroad in Japan for a year, and I don’t really have time to play video games, and I’m also running another blog so this blog is essentially going on hiatus for a year. But I saw this article and felt like I should share. Games are really getting beautiful: http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/12/11/most-beautiful-video-game-moments-of-2013
Right now I’m pretty much limited to playing my 3DS, so I’ve been playing mostly Animal Crossing, but my host family bought me Pokemon Y so I’ve been playing that too. I initially was playing in Japanese but it got too difficult–it literally took me several hours just to get my starter–so I started over in English. Amazing so far.
This is a (mostly) platform game made by me and two classmates for a final project. It explores the theme of infidelity, and the feelings one might experience after cheating. It’s short and hopefully not too difficult, so please give it a try!

This game has you playing as the lone survivor in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, but it takes place almost entirely inside your head as you slowly go mad. Play it here. It’s a platformer inspired by games like Limbo and Braid (but not as good).
This is a tower defense game in which you defend your castle against hordes of enemies. Pretty fun I guess. So play it.
