For what it's worth (and this isn't a dig), but I missed this and others pointed out that Banjo-Kazooie's moveset is modeled off of Duck Hunt's. Meaning several of their normals (A moves) are identical or only slightly modified in terms of their animation

Just wrapped up a fairly lengthy Cblog post analyzing the Smash Ultimate trailer for both Hero and Banjo-Kazooie and their movesets. It's only a long scroll because of all the images I posted, I promise.


In case people didn't catch it, the DQ Hero is a semi clone of Link.


Oh, I see it's Disable Loading Images Friday


The Stadia stuff is priced too good. This stuff is going to fly, despite the bad infrastructure in the US. Also, "Stadia Base" sounds like the first thing to get dropped later on. It's an onboarding level of service for skeptics. It won't last.


World charting video game series only takes 21 years and no alternative to finally spend a lot of money on production values.


I hadn't realized until now that FF7 is full of several insipid, inscrutable minigames. I must have spent 10 minutes trying to figure out how to march in that fucking line. Cool.


The results of the last Melee tournament... oh baby jeebus.


An original assumption on the function of the brain was as an organ to help cool the blood. I love that kind of stuff.


Someone like me, who you might recognize as a wordy person, is not a lover of grammar. Grammar is the science of language and uncomfortable neighbor of art -- a mess in the chaos.


Sensors indicate a larger than expected quotient of wienerage in the last episode of Chernobyl. Satisfaction levels dangerously high.


Started playing Sundered, a metroidvania that I think is easily lost in the shuffle. But it does some very good things with conventions of the genre, it even does procedural generation in an interesting way.


The Chernobyl miniseries continues to be a profoundly good piece of work.


Comic Book Ads: "Lobo" issue 2 (1994)

Oh hey, good morning! We're back with some more old comic book ads to take a lookie-loo at, so I sure hope you enjoy this trip down advertisement lane. This one is from the second issue of Lobo, a DC character of very 1990's repute tha...


Since everyone else is doing it, my spoilies in the comments:


Picked up Hyper Light Drifter again after having beaten it a while back only to notice "New Game Alt" mode with a completely different character that doesn't use a sword. Is this new? Maybe I just glossed over it because I started an NG+ file before.


A friend texted this to me. What a manipulative, shitty piece of propaganda. This coming from an employer says a lot.


What if an indie dev makes a spiritual successor to Jet Force Gemini? Like a low-poly game with sharper visuals and modern controls. That would make me a happy boy.


Comic Book ad blog number three has been posted. Do please enjoy.


Comic Book Ads: "Spider-Man" issue 375 (March 1993)

[Direct link if images aren't loading] Once again, good morning to you! For my third entry into what has become a daily blog series on this site I present more comic book ads for us all to enjoy. The cover will be our normal starting p...


The next entry in my new blog series showcasing comic book ads has been posted (or it will be when the Dtoid site catches up). If anyone still can't see the images, let me know in that comments to the blog and I'll put them in there... again. sigh
