Game Sho — Quest for Infamy

Game Sho — Quest for Infamy
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.

Game Sho – Ridiculous Mobile Story
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.

Game Sho – 2D Or Not 2D

Game Sho – 2D Or Not 2D
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.

Game Sho – State Of Gaming

Game Sho – State Of Gaming
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.

Game Sho – Free To Play Is The Future
Back then, games were worth much more than just a pretty penny. Now, we complain about how expensive games are priced at 60 dollars. With the indie scene and the wealth of good games for under 20 bucks on XBLA and PlayStation Network, tons of great games under two dollars in the iOS app store, and companies going bankrupt even when they’re selling millions of games, it’s easy to wonder what the value of a game really is.

Game Sho — What? Story In Video Games?
Video games can do so many great things when it comes to creating an experience. The amazing thing about video games that most other mediums don't have is the sheer interactivity of it.

Game Sho — Pajama Princess And Story In Mobile Games

Game Sho — Pajama Princess And Story In Mobile Games
Princess Pajama presents itself as something much like a tower defense in the same vein as Cartoon Wars, where you fight off hordes of monsters trying to get to the other side to take down their base while trying to defend your own. Not really what you would think the game to be right?

Game Sho – Undo The End & Mobile Games

Game Sho – Undo The End & Mobile Games
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.

Game Sho – Ludum Dare & Katawa Shoujo
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.
