ESH | Disco Dodgeball Brings Dodgeball Back to Gaming

Not only a mouth­ful, Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodge­ball is an amaz­ing Early-Access mul­ti­player expe­ri­ence. I have not, in a long time, got­ten that sucked into play­ing match after match of any com­pet­i­tive mul­ti­player game. With fist-pumping music, diverse match types and psy­che­delic visu­als, this is one of the most promis­ing games to enter the Early Access program.

Ramblings | New Nintendo 3DS Direct Emotional Roller Coaster

It has been a while since I’ve responded directly here about a Nin­tendo Direct. Then again, the mini-conferences haven’t had as many twists and turns as the one this morn­ing. It was truly an emo­tional roller coaster, so I’d like to respond to each piece of news indi­vid­u­ally with my thoughts. Feel free to respond with your thoughts as well!

ESH | Taking Games For Granted

Recently, my father-in-law was stay­ing with me and my spouse lead­ing up to the New Year. One evening, while my wife slept, I decided to show off Wolfen­stein: The New Order to both enter­tain my guest and make some progress in the story. As I played, he enjoyed the alter­nate his­tory aspects of it and we ended up play­ing for quite a while. So long, in fact, that I ended up com­plet­ing the game. What I wasn’t expect­ing was his reac­tion when the cred­its began to roll. He was absolutely floored that I’d fin­ished the game and was prac­ti­cally gush­ing at the ease of my vic­tory. I was com­pletely con­fused by his reac­tion until I dis­cussed it with my spouse a bit later when she said that it was likely he was so impressed because he may have never actu­ally beaten a game before.
