In this edition of Editorial Miscellany, Ethos discovers the Super Nintendo for the first time and launches into praise for timeless games and how they are important to guide the current confused generation of games to eventually find their way.
Ethan played one Nintendo game and watched another. He has good things to say but sees the ways in which Nintendo has been its own worst enemy by looking at some of their design choices that occasionally operate in contradiction.
Ethos played a very good side-scrolling game and a very disappointing side-scrolling game in an attempt to collect stories for this week’s Editorial Miscellany. Spoilers, but Shovel Knight is the good game. And Valiant Hearts is the disappointing one.
After weeks of Wario and Mario Kart, Ethos is finally sick of talking about local multiplayer games and instead talks about his experience with a few attempts at combo-genre RPGs. Spoilers, they are not great.
Ethos downloaded Game & Wario based on a specific recommendation and he is very happy about it. So happy, apparently, that he decided to rant for most of his Editorial Miscellany about it.
Lusipurr’s Fountain of Perpetual Disappointment has been a project in some form or another since its inception as a joke on a podcast almost six years ago, but by the time 2012 rolled around, it became a serious and involved undertaking. Even as a lifelong gamer and having a history in independent film-making, nothing could more »
Ethos witnessed the E3 press conferences from somewhat of a distance this year and feels something like ambivalence toward the whole thing. He reacts to the announcements and his own apathy within.
Well it was nice while it lasted. Ethos comes down off his exciting fortnight of gaming to report on his dull half-fortnight of not-gaming. What more could one want in a gaming-related article? A lot. A lot more. Sorry.
Ethos had a pretty busy two weeks in the world of gaming for once and he is excited to tell all of Lusipurr.com about it. Mario Kart 8, Puppeteer, and, wait… Suikoden Tierkreis?!? Will Ethos ever learn?
Ethos is disillusioned with the Mass Effect series after returning to the third entry, but he also likes Dragon Quest more and more, so maybe he has a problem. What can be made of all this? Who cares?
