I had never really played an adventure game before. I'm fairly young, so that genre had fallen out of the mainstream before I ever got the chance to play them. So, with no prior experience, I dove into Quest for Infamy.

I recently bought two games and spent hours on end playing them. The two games were Game Dev Story and Ridiculous Fishing. These two games are entirely different games.

On the 28th, there was a curious announcement from Nintendo. The Wii U Deluxe bundle is dropping to $299.99, and there is a new handheld making its debut. The 2DS made a rather large splash on the internet, to say the least.

Video games have come a long way. From 2D or vector graphics and only a few sprites on-screen to thousands of polygons and near realistic gameplay. When I had a Nintendo 64, I just needed to plug-in one of my four or five cartridges into the slot on top and play. Currently, it's not that different.

Let's see here, so Kana---the only one who voted mind you---picked out Undo The End for the free indie. Honestly, I don't really like it. It has a unique game mechanic that might be cool, but it doesn't really deliver.

I remember giving Fez a mention in my first article here, but I didn't give it that much detail as I wasn't focusing on it.

Ludum Dare, a contest to create a game within 48 hours. This is a great event for people who want to make their first game because it sets a specific 48 hour goal that people can focus on very hard without a worry for bugs. In the end, a game can win on coolness, fun, graphics, audio, humor, mood, theme, and innovation.
