2013: BM’s Year (So Far) In Weird

Hello everyone, or at least everyone who still remembers me. It’s certainly been awhile since I last had the time or inclination to submit a proper blog post here, hasn’t it? Granted, what you’re reading now still isn’t one...   more

WARNING: If you object to the idea of a fighting game-related post written by someone unable to cite active frames, stun values, tiers and combo strings from memory at a moment’s notice, stop reading now to save yourself (a...   more

Namco vs. Atlus: Fate of BM's Self-Respect


Collaboration: IF Only...

Hm. It would appear that my fellow c-bloggers are currently writing about video game-related collaborations and crossovers that they wish would happen. Interesting. Most of the community’s focus, at least so far, has been...   more



Shortblog: The Real News of the Epic Mickey 2 Announcement

As you’ve probably seen by now, a sequel to 2010’s Disney tribute/platformer Epic Mickey has been announced – not too surprisingly, a good amount of gamer chatter has bubbled forth in response, including quite a bit of earl...   more

Resolutions: Fresh Flowers

As both a video gamer and a onetime student of the visual arts, I’ve never felt uncomfortable shining an occasional spotlight on the more “superficial” aspects of my favored pastime, snorts of “graphics whore” from certain ...   more

East vs. West: Where The Old Gods Dwell

Whenever humanity encounters something really big that it can’t explain, it has a fascinating tendency to not only create its own explanations, but to grant them life. The sky, the sea, the past, the future, love, war, all ...   more

What I’ve Been Up To: Part 2

Hi again, all: as promised in the previous installment, I’ve got some more stuff to talk about regarding what I’ve been up to lately. Let’s get right down to brass tacks: though I haven’t written much here, there is one thi...   more



What I've Been Up To: Part 1

Hello everyone…or at least everyone who remembers me! Hope you’ve all been well – as you might be aware, I still pop in here regularly to look around and comment, it’s been some time since I last blogged myself. At this po...   more



The Obscurer Tribune # 60

Well, everyone, I guess this is about it – as was previously announced, this will be the final issue of The Obscurer Tribune, at least for the time being. I suppose it’s fitting that we’re concluding this latest run with on...   more



The Obscurer Tribune # 59

Issues like this one aptly display both why I started the Tribune and why I need a break from it…there’s so much neat stuff to cover, but trying to track down and transcribe even a halfway-decent amount of it is pretty much...   more

'Magnet School: Graduation Speech

Well, well, well – it seemed like this day would never arrive, but here we are. As all of us bear witness to the conclusion of this ‘Magnet School curriculum, we’re ready to stop, for a little while at least, merely reading...   more



The Obscurer Tribune # 58

There’ve been a lot of hefty Tribunes lately, though I doubt you mind….not so much for the bevy of news available, but because it usually shuts me up in these intro/closing sections. Usually. --------- There is a very l...   more



'Magnet School: Extra Credit

As some of you probably guessed, I initially planned to conclude this series with last week’s post: in terms of “pure” puzzlers, everything I have to teach is already before you. As the finishing touches were being applied ...   more



The Obscurer Tribune # 57

… --------- Here’s another video of Akai Katana, showing most of the third stage – I dunno, when some ticked-off dude starts summoning trains at me, that’s when I turn around and go home. My Japanese-literate shmup com...   more



'Magnet School: Ochige 401 (Hon.)

“ANOTHER ochige lesson?” Well, yes and no – while we are still dealing with “falling object” puzzlers here, remember, you’re Honors students by now. Puyo-Puyo and other instantly-recognizable ochige are but distant specks i...   more

The Obscurer Tribune # 56

Once again, happy trails, Anonymouse – it’s been a pleasure being recapped by you. Also, a warm welcome to GamesAreArt – something tells me we’ll be seeing each other regularly (y’know, just a hunch). Anyways, on to this we...   more

The Obscurer Tribune # 55

There’s plenty of JOY to go around in the Tribune this week, so stop reading this (*snicker*…“read this”…I slay me) and get to it! --------- Okay, so let’s start getting down that the aforementioned JOY – readers alread...   more

The Obscurer Tribune # 54

You’ll have to pardon me for this week’s issue coming off the presses a few hours late – as you’ll soon see (assuming you bother to keep reading), it’s the biggest one we’ve had of late. That being the case, I’ll step aside...   more

The Obscurer Tribune # 53

Okay guys, it’s time to finally make a decision – you’ve got to choose, once and for all, whether to utterly ignore The Obscurer Tribune, or ‘Magnet School. Seriously, who has the time to so completely disregard both? You m...   more

The Obscurer Tribune # 52
