Spelunky Daily Challenged Week #8: Did You Miss Me?

After a week of sickness prompted a Spelunky vacation, Justin returns to the mines only to find the game bitter, angry, and more stupifying than ever. We can’t give up now.

Spelunky Daily Challenged Week #6: A Little Outnumbered

In between daily challenges the enemies of Spelunky have started strategy sessions on how to work better together. Either that or Week 6 is when paranoia sets in and cripples all of Justin’s abilities.

Hey! Watch! Coin Animated Short

I don’t really carry much change around these days, but I still associate it with the classic arcades of my youth. Exit 73 Studios must have a similar reverence for metal money because its new animated short, Coin, features Donovan Murdock’s quest for revenge on the man who stole his coin.

Spelunky Daily Challenged Week #3: Needs Some Bat Bat-spray

Week 3 was one bouncing step backwards into traps and onto spikes. All because I was scared of a little flying mouse. Two and a half weeks is apparently my limit on optimism without progress, as silly Spelunky mistakes really started to break my spirit by the end of the week. This game is lucky that… Continue reading

Hey! Watch! Other Places Videos Series Features a Serene Looking at Various Gaming Locales

In watching Ultrabrilliant’s Other Places video series, it is clear to me that I haven’t stopped to smell the video game roses (usually for fear of my character’s safety) in too long. Exploration is probably the biggest sole factor in maintaining my interest in gaming in general. From the technical marvels to the thick atmospheres… Continue reading

Spelunky Daily Challenged Week #1 Highlight (Death) Reel with JDevL

Spelunky has taken more than a few of our lives in the past week, thanks in no small part to the PC version’s addition of daily challenges. After I got off to a truly horrible start, I decided to record/livestream as many of my daily challenge sessions as possible. Maybe I’ll learn something, maybe I’ll… Continue reading
