Shadow of the Colossus by Nick Suttner from Boss Fight Books is a play-by-play walkthrough of the game Shadow of the Colossus with personal anecdotes and developer correspondence interspersed throughout. It’s exactly that and nothing more. If that doesn’t sound interesting to you, then this book isn’t for you. If it does sound interesting to you–as it definitely does to me–then you will get a lot of enjoyment out of this book. (more…)

The credits have rolled on What Remains of Edith Finch. Here’s the set-up: a family curse causes every member but one of the Finch family to die in every generation. That left-alive person lives only long enough to keep the family lineage going for another cursed generation. You play as Edith Finch, this generation’s lone surviving member, as you return to your childhood home to learn more about the curse and to, perhaps, escape it. What Remains of Edith Finch is a walking simulator that delivers its story with variety and creativity without ever buckling under the weight of its heavy message. I’ll be reeling from this one for a long time. This could very well be in my top 5 favorite games of all time. (more…)

I’ve been collecting video game themed coins for a little while. Though I don’t do collection or pick-up style videos, I felt this particular video was warranted as I don’t see too many video game coin videos out there. Let me know in the comments below if you collect video game coins. Are there holy grail coins that I should be looking out for?

Also, what are your thoughts on Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain? (more…)

I still love Limited Run Games. I will still support them in any way I can that doesn’t involve buying games (I ordered a t-shirt today). I’ve realized recently that having unplayed video games on my shelf bothers me. I wish it didn’t, but it does. I simply have too many games. Unfortunately, Limited Run Games releases are the majority of my unplayed games on my shelf. I plan to play all of them, but given my limited amount of time, I cannot rationalize adding more to my shelf.… Read the rest
