Goodbye, April showers. Hello, grating Facebook memes of May…
In April, we reviewed:
We opened the month with two reviews of old classics (well, one not so classic): Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders and… E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial as an April Fool’s joke. The Green Screen Mage (who we interviewed) brought us a review on the recent release of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. A couple of my personal favorites we revisited were Breath of Fire II, River City Ransom, Super Metroid, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Darkstalkers: the Night Warriors and arcade’s Sunset Riders. The Rage Mage did his dookie all over the Final Fantasy XV – Platinum Demo and Spider-Man: Return of the Sinister Six.
On the musical horizon, we discussed the ubiquitous Ocean theme in its light shallows and deep, dark depths variations.
We hit a few other milestones with hits and such, sharing some great concept art and screenshots from various franchises. Most recently that was the visuals of Alien: Isolation with our celebratory post for reaching 3000 hits.
A post that was near and dear to my heart as a new father was “Interpreting Super Metroid through the Lens of Motherhood“. I hope that one helps parents struggling with adjusting to their new baby.
Finally, and most importantly, we’re collecting gaming memories. Please read this post, “Your Gaming Memories in a Bottle?“, and share some of your favorite gaming memories for our upcoming 100 snapshots of gaming life. This’ll drop when we reach 100 posts, and this one here makes 83. The more people participate, the better it’ll turn out, so check it!
April was a great month for attracting new readers, reaching out and working with our community, and hitting new heights. We managed to review 2 more games than we did the previous month. May May be even better!
Only now, the Darkwing Duck theme song is stuck in my head!
