True Nature: Memories of Star Road

Like many, many gamers, I have a distinct love for Mario. I'm old enough to remember playing the original Mario Bros. in the arcade, and it remains one of my favorites of the series. Super Mario Bros. as well, where you had to wait in lin...

 
 
 

Beercade mural: Supreme Awesome in Nebraska?

I don't need to lay out the events that lead me to visit Benson, Nebraska this past weekend. What I need to do is share the mindblowing win that was found on a small-town wall as my gf and I took a walk down Maple Street after breakfast. ...

 
 
 

Have you seen these Super Mario Bros. candy tins???

Maybe you have, but I just wanted to take some cool pictures :-) I did a double take when I saw these at the checkout in Bed, Bath & Beyond of all places. At first glance I thought they were cheap knockoffs-- but they are actually really...

How a title screen is made: Ace Yeti Trapper

So here's a peek into how I went about creating a title screen for an iPhone game that my company launched recently. Note I do not presume any one methodology is better than another. In fact some graphic artists may find this example to b...

Lovin' me some 8-bit Jesus

Tales of PS3 Tomfoolery: Why has God forsaken me?

A Time to Build: Shoot-Em-Up Construction Kit

I made a papercraft Castle Crasher

Thanks to D-toider Danmartigan pointing the way, I downloaded this dude's Castle Crasher papercraft template. Considering he created it from scratch based only on a photo of someone else's template, he did a pretty good job. Putting ...

If you love it, change it: Pokémon

I have a lot of favorite games. I hate having to answer the question, "So what's your favorite game?" It's just too narrow a question to such a broad subject. But if I had to, a relatively encompassing answer for me would be Poké...

 
 
 

Damn you, St. Mystere

Do you like solving puzzles? Or perhaps free time to do other things of import? Be it known that Professor Layton and the Curious Village holds these two actions in high conflict. What is one to do? I do enjoy brainteasers and their ...

 
 
 

Airport Extreme and Nintendo DS WiFi

About Edcoone of us since 8:07 PM on 08.23.2007

Who is Super Edco?
Since back from the retro days of yore, anytime a game would let you create a character and name it yourself, I've been using EDCO. It came about as an amalgam of my own name and the fact that an unusual number of games in those days only let you use four characters.

Videogames are a big part of my life. I've been playing and making videogames just about since there was such a thing to be done. My favorite games are RPGs, Fighters, and action adventures, and the rest of that list is a long one indeed. Currently I make games for Rumblecade.
