Sophie Houlden held a Fishing Game Jame last week, resulting in many new fishing games for us to love, though sometimes the term "fishing" is used loosely. Sophie's game FisherClimer is still in progress, and hasn't actually ...
Destructoid loves Ridiculous Fishing. We can't stop talking about its clever design, quirky vernacular, and unmistakable prismatic aesthetic. Whenever I see strangers on the train playing the likes of trashy iOS games like Candy Crush I want to elbow them in the eye and show their remaining good eye what they're missing.
Backstory: Billy is a man with a mysterious past, out for the sort of redemption that requires lazer-guided bazookas and isolated fishing vessels. Reel men. Fishing is Billy's chi. Help him cast his lure to the deepest depths of the ocean without touching a single fish, attempting to lure the rarest catch, then grabbing everything valuable in sight on the way up.
Once your catch is flung into the air you'll use pistols, rockets, and multi-touch semi-automatic weapons to turn it into cash, allowing you to purchase ridiculous upgrades. America was created so this game could someday exist, and this guide attempts to help you enjoy 100% of your $2.99 iOS purchase. Don't worry, there are no other opportunistic in-app game purchases you must be subjected to. Amen, Vlambeer.
Pace yourself -- you can't just run and gun through it in a few hours. There are hats, man.
What is it that makes fishing such a compelling mechanic to developers? Ridiculous Fishing helps to answer that question. It's takes all of the moment-to-moment experiences associated with fishing (calm, anticipation, surprise, disappointment, pride, shame, epiphany) and turns them all up to appropriately ridiculous levels of intensity. That's why it's the best fishing game.
When talking to another human being who doesn't play many videogames, I have to imagine trying to explain a title like Let's Fish! Hooked On would come across as mystifying. And in its own way, that's kind of awesome. It's a ...

I know you've been waiting for this. XS Games has announced that 2009's Bass Pro Shops The Strike has gotten a revision: The Strike: Tournament Edition. Better still, that revision is available today for the Wii.
Last week, I got to do one of those things that makes me remember how cool my job is: I played The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The fifth installment in the hugely successful Elder Scrolls series and one of the most eagerly anticipated games of the year.
Before I begin regaling you with tales from Skyrim of fair bar-maidens and fire-breathing dragons, I should clarify something: I’m not an Elder Scrolls fan. It’s not that I dislike the series, I just haven’t spent that much time with it. Oblivion came out at a time when I wasn’t doing much gaming, and since then, my time with it has been limited to playing around with it at friends’ houses.
My first exposure to The Elder Scrolls was from a severely maladjusted co-worker who’d share anecdotes of sneaking into barracks, poisoning all the apples in the pantry, waiting for all the guards to eat the poison apples, and then stealing their things. I’m a sucker for sandbox games, and the thought of this much freedom piqued my interest. However, before I got around to checking out Oblivion, I got sucked into Fallout 3, which quickly became one of my all-time favorite games in a matter of hours. Fallout, however, is NOT The Elder Scrolls.
