How Hearthstone Helped Me Embrace the Randomness of Life

April 28th, 2014 by

hearthstone random

I’ve always avoided luck as much as possible. My childhood was emotionally rocky, and I dealt with it by hiding in my head. There, in the recesses of my mindscape, I had boundless freedom and complete control. I naturally gravitated towards escapism, whether it was building something with Legos, reading, watching TV, or riding my bike.

Then, of course, came video games. When I was eight, my sister and I saved up our allowance for a year to buy

Video game soundtracks are largely comprised of themes that are empowering, tense, intriguing, foot-moving, and blood-pumping. Occasionally, though, you run across video game music that makes you chill, perhaps even to the point that you get a little drowsy.

While they might cut short the play-sessions of the sleepy gamer, these select tracks can have tangible benefits outside of their games of origin. When you’re stressed out, fed up, or having a hard time finding your way to slumberland, a collection of soothing video game music can be invaluable.

Out of my personal playlist of 50 relaxing video game music tracks, here are the 10 that I find the most effective, in order of most chill-inducing last:

Final Fantasy VI has one of the most memorable casts of characters in the series. In no small part this is because of the very expressive animations compared to what had come before it in the Final Fantasy franchise. Another element contributing to the expressiveness of FFVI’s cast is the dialogue of the various characters throughout the game which didn’t drive the main plot forward but created alternate story arcs that gave the characters interpersonal tensions through which to express their individualistic motivations. It is through this additional dialogue that the various differences in personalities gets expressed.

Top Ten Games Missing from the App Store

Apple’s App Store is home to many terrific games, most of which make terrific use of touch controls. It’s also home to many ports across many different genres, be they mainstream or indie. There are a lot of great games, however, that have yet to be ported that probably should.

I made a the original top ten list back in 2011. Two games from that list were later ported in Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective and Scribblenauts: Remix.

In my top ten list from 2012, three games made the cut in Final Fantasy IV, Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes, and Theatrhythm. Theatrhythm wasn’t even out when I made the call, but I’m glad it made it to the App Store, though Square-Enix definitely overcharged their mobile fans for the privilege.

Without further ado, I present to you the “Top Ten Games Missing from the App Store.”

NES Sprite Trivia

October 17th, 2013 by

The Nintendo Entertainment System single-handedly pulled gaming back up to its feet after the great video game crash of the early 80s, when trash like Atari’s E.T. caused many to lose faith in interactive electronic entertainment. Nearly thirty years after its release in North America, it’s still relevant, and its best games are still played by millions around the world.

To pay homage to what is arguably the most important video game system of all time, we’ve compiled a collage of sprites from the NES to test your knowledge. Some are easy, some are hard, some are tricky… all are nostalgic.

Can you name the game that goes with each sprite? All answers are shown together below, so try to figure them all out before looking at the key.
