It’s about a three hour drive from Dauphin to Winnipeg. I make the drive often enough, and on my latest trip I tried coming up with game ideas. Here’s what I got:
Bowser’s Funhouse – No mushrooms in this Modern Day Mario. The titular character changes between tall, short, skinny, and fat based on his appearance in funhouse mirrors. Each form has unique abilities.
Eat Up and Away – A little girl wants to meet an alien. She eats clouds to float higher and higher.
Blarney – Bullshit your way to the top. Dialogue puzzles, multiple endings. Bonus stage: vertical platformer in which you scale Blarney Castle to kiss the stone.
Universim – Set the parameters, then watch a universe grow.
Conservation Officer – Protect Manitoba’s lakes from zebra mussels by inspecting and cleaning watercraft. Bonus stage: monitor the emerald ash borers’ movement and stop people from transporting firewood. It’s edu-tainment!
Body Builder – From the inside out, design creatures to inhabit and withstand various environments.

Futurama is the second best cartoon of all time. It’s better than The Simpsons (ever was). It’s better than Gargoyles. It is not better than ReBoot. Continue reading
That’s it, folks. The greatest save I’ll ever make. Hashtag Rocket League.
Happy E3 everybody!
Gaming fanfare is fun! I must admit, E3 doesn’t interest me half as much as my favourite streaming event, Awesome Games Done Quick, but it’s cool when everyone’s paying attention to the same thing and sharing in the excitement. Continue reading
No matter what I’m doing, if it isn’t gaming, a part of me nags: Isn’t this time you could be spending leveling up? I’ll be 31 this year and I’m not sure I’ll ever learn to ignore the fact that video games reward those who play them. Continue reading
Let me tell you about two video games.
You may have heard of them. I don’t know who you are or what you know. Here goes, anyway: Continue reading
There are two winners to come out of the third installment of the RLCS: Northern Gaming and Psyonix. Continue reading
