The Calendar of Mario – May

I wasn’t able to find a 2018 calendar that I liked. Last year I had a Legend of Zelda calendar. I was rather happy having a whole bunch of different Zelda games to look at each month. I figured “Why don’t I make my own calendar!” It was harder than I thought, but I prevailed in making the…

WarioWare: DIY – The dirty Dozen

I remember being impressed with WarioWare, inc.: Mega MicroGame$! the first time I saw it. It was in the means of a flash game advertisement and/or competition. It’s hard to remember exactly what it was but it made me want the game.

I enjoy all the WarioWare games but the one I played the least is the one I feel I should have played more than any other, WarioWare D.I.Y.

When Super Mario Make was just a pipe dream in every Nintendo fanboy’s eye, D.I.Y. gave us the tools to make our own microgames. See what I did there? Mario Maker… Pipe Dream… *cough*.

Sure it was a little flawed and missing some key functions and mechanics, but it still made it possible for the creativity to flow. And here I am now to showcase the twelve, count ’em, twelve microgames I actually finished making.

Before we get started I’d like to let you know how I came across my copy of the game. In April of 2010 Kotaku Australia ran a competition for Splinter Cell: Conviction. I don’t recall the prize, I assume it was a copy of the game. A quick google search just now and I discovered the prize was actually A Splinter Cell: Conviction Xbox 360 console bundle.

Perth Wildcats NBA 2K16

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve played an NBA 2K game. I’m pretty sure the last one was 2K14, which came out in 2013. The only mode I ever used to play was MyCareer because I liked the idea of being your own player and progressing through your time in the league.

I guess it’s because the only team in the NBA I ever liked was the Indiana Pacers and since Reggie Miller left I stopped caring. However for the last couple of seasons I’ve been following my local NBL team here in Perth, Western Australia.

The Perth Wildcats!
