i got this person confused with brandon wardell for a minute


lookin good


Ooooooh those are some choice quotes from the judge.

Eat shit, Wardell


I am trying to remember if this is one I KSed as an 8bit game a thousand years ago.


not to be all negative and whatnot, but

not really feeling the double jump in this. at least, from the stage being demo’d, it feels extraneous. maybe it has some purpose or better implementation in other stages.

otherwise, looks kind of like a more Treasure-y Contra (moreso than Hard Corps, i mean). i’m intrigued!


do most videogames have double jumps in them now because of the growing societal fear of commitment? in this essay, i will


What the fuck how’d you get into my Dropbox


Broke: double jump
Woke: triple jump
Masterstroke: Kirby infinite jump
Pre-soaked: Mario 3 frog suit jump


Bespoke: Bionic Commando arm


Catherine is coming out on steam I guess


the best game design is you only get to jump once and you have to live with it for the rest of your life


you only get to jump once, but each time you restart the game, your jump is slightly higher. you can keep restarting to get higher jumps, but there are various dangers inherent in jumping too high


You can only press each button on the controller once.


I wish this had been more than an essay

Xbox emulation is officially in the sweet spot of the glitches being really cool.

self-interview with a dude that wrote a bunch of the emulators for the xbox, haven’t watched it yet probably interesting!


Today we’re happy and excited to announce Hitman HD Enhanced Collection , a compilation of two classic Hitman titles remastered in 4K resolution: Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman: Absolution . It will be available digitally January 11, 2019, for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Both games can be played in 4K resolution and 60 fps, including many other improvements that bring these two classic titles into 2019 with the attention and love that they deserve.

“We’re very happy with this collection and how we were able to update and remaster two of our classic Hitman titles for modern consoles,” said Hakan Abrak, CEO, IO Interactive. “ Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman: Absolution have helped us on our journey to where we are today, and we’re looking forward to players enjoying them in 4K and 60 fps.”

Hitman HD Enhanced Collection will feature:

  • 4K visuals at 60 frames per second
  • Increased texture resolution
  • Upgraded texture formats
  • Super-sampling
  • Upscale support
  • Heightened shadow map and mirror resolutions
  • Improved lighting
  • Updated controls for a more fluid experience


Good on IO for re-releasing these in a way that directly profits them instead of a publisher first, but:

Hitman Absolution was a PS3 game

Hitman Blood Money was already remastered for PS3.


Also Absolution was Absolutely Awful.

Blood Money is ace, though.
