Shameless Self Promotion

This is the place where you can confab about all the other stuff besides videogames.

Another really good review, Marlew. I'd heard about Paratopic and I reckon your write-up has put it on my list for when October rolls round! I am really enjoying the resurgence of PS1 era graphics in indie games at the moment and it sounds like the designers knew how to use that to its fullest.

Thanks, Jon. I'm happy I've tempted you to give it a try. From an AV perspective, they really nail it, and I'm still listening to the soundtrack regularly.

Posted my latest level review for Dishonored 2.

When I started this blog it was just cursory posts about my experiences replaying the games. It has mushroomed into essays about the lore and design of each level now, and I'm enjoying writing it more than ever. Which I've proved by ending up three weeks ahead of schedule with the next three levels essentially written already, having abandoned the play-a-level-a-week restriction and rendered the weekly posting schedule a sham and an artifice.

This wound up being the biggest one yet, fittingly on one of the most famous levels in the series - The Clockwork Mansion.

I'm going to space these out on the forum so I'm not so shameless weekly, but I wanted to post that our episode of 90s Music Got Me Like... "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba is up! Next up is "She's So High" by Tal Bachman.

I reviewed and analysed The Royal Conservatory and The Dust District levels from Dishonored 2, which means I'm nearly up to that other very famous level, with a certain timepiece.

I enjoyed really digging into The Dust District, I've perhaps underrated it slightly in the past because of what it comes between but it is a fantastic chunk of world and gameplay. Here it is:

If anyone is into anime, I do a weekly news/review podcast on twitch(which later goes onto youtube). I plan on doing more like a fighting game news podcast starting next month:

I have an article featured in the latest issue of Switch Player, for those who are also looking forward to No More Heroes III or otherwise enjoy the occasional magazine dedicated to the medium. Copies are limited, so if you're interested, you might want to act sooner rather than later.

My solo podcast, Radio64, turns a year old today! It's a video game music remix show, mostly Overclocked Remix tracks. I keep it about an hour or less, since it also plays on a small, local radio station in Western NY state.

Big news on the Bethesda front yesterday, the most interesting aspect of which to me is that Arkane Studios are part of the deal and will hopefully reap the benefits creatively and be supported for the excellent IPs they come up with.

I have marked the occasion in my own small way by posting my latest level write-up or review. I've come to a very interesting level in the series that has already spawned many think pieces and YouTube videos, A Crack in the Slab:
