Review: What You Don't Get

Every once in a while a comic comes along that tugs at your heartstrings and flushes out your tear ducts. Blankets. Persepolis. Pride of Baghdad. I recently read one of those comics. It’s called What You Don’t Get, written and drawn by indie comic creator Anne Thalheimer. This book follows a semi-autobiographical track, following Anne from high school through college and into adulthood, focusing on the impact of an event that forever altered the course of her life: a double homicide at Simon's Rock College on Dec 13, 1992.

A lookback at E3 games: Super Mario 3D World

We may have seen Mario a lot lately but boy, am I excited for Super Mario 3D World for Wii U. The 3DS version, Super Mario 3D Land, was an excellent new entry into Nintendo's platforming series and I'm happy to see the next one on their home console in delicious, crisp High Def. My first impression is that four player co-op (with Peach!) is a great addition and the fact that all the characters play differently is icing on the cake. The cat suit seems a little strange but looks like a fun ability all the same. New Super Mario Bros U is great but I'm glad to see a more 3D Mario. I can imagine that this is more of an "in-between" game, meaning we're still waiting for a proper entry in the vein of Mario 64, Sunshine and Galaxy, but I think this is a good way to please those fans who are eager to see what Nintendo has in store for us.

A lookback at E3 games: Fantasia: Music Evolved

Probably my favorite game from E3: a new rhythm game from Harmonix that puts a new spin on the whole music game genre. While the game does have your traditional "hit the mark with the right timing" gameplay, it also allows the user to change the song as they play it. Ultimately this conductor game should be seen to be believed. Check out this video for a good look (the gameplay starts around 3:40).

The game incoporates its Fantasia license loosely, but attempts to capture the spirit of the classic movie more than anything. Fantasia: Music Evolved comes out for Xbox One and Xbox 360 sometime in 2014, and requires Kinect to play.

E3 is over - Sony wins, probably, and everyone's still hating the Xbox One

E3!

So it's come and gone. Every year, this giant news source drops a boatload of content onto fans' shoulders, and leaves us to sort through the mess. In the coming weeks, we're going to take a look at some of the things that might have been overshadowed by the major console news.

For now, here's a quick recap of the biggest stuff with Microsoft and Sony, in case you missed it!

E3 2013 Press Conferences

The day of E3 press conferences ended with a bang thanks to Sony's strong showing. We saw the console, got the price ($399, lower than Xbox's $499), nice announcements (Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy XV (formerly Versus XIII)), and support for indie developers!

Tomorrow, the adventure continues with Nintendo's video presentation.

Join Bosskey on IRC during E3 one of several ways:

  • Download an IRC client (like Chatzilla, Adium, or mIRC), and go to #bosskey on irc.rizon.net.
  • Visit this link directly and just enter your name to join: Mibbit link!

Kiefer Sutherland is the next Naked Snake voice

During Konami's pre-E3 press conference today, it has been revealed that Kiefer Sutherland, best known as Jack Bauer of 24, will provide the voice of Big Boss AKA Naked Snake in Metal Gear Solid 5. Absurd!

David Hayter, the original voice of the Snake character, was shown to not be involved with this new game in the Metal Gear Solid series a few weeks back when the MGS 5 trailer was first released.

NYU study finds that the presence of a used games market drives new game sales

Marketing professors at NYU recently investigated the notion that the sale of a used game equals lost money for the game's developer. They found that consumers are "'forward-thinking': They take the eventual resale value of their games into account when purchasing them."

Were the used games market to be eliminated entirely, game prices would need to be about 33% (down to roughly $40 in the US) lower, according to the study. Rumors surrounding the newly unveiled Microsoft Xbox One seem to suggest that the used game industry is indeed in trouble.
