The Shufflingdead train to success

December 17, 2009 Newbs No Comments

Until now, only phases 1-5 of “The New and Thrilling Shufflingdead.com” project were known. They were:

Phase 1: Finish porting site over to WordPress
Phase 2: Update at least minimally
Phase 3: Promote site
Phase 4: Expand the Shufflingdead empire
Phase 5: Increase quality

Phase 5, I feel, has gone superbly. The “News” section of the site was introduced under this phase, and with it came an endless march of stories that I’ve had fun writing, and which I suspect have been fun for the Shufflingdead readership.

And now, it is my pleasure to introduce Phases 6 through 8 of the project:

The Dungeon’s Boss: Games Played, Preview #2

For most things in life, I am a procrastinator, even when it comes to tasks I enjoy. That includes school work, site work, cleaning, and email writing. Man, writing emails sounds like a lot of work before you sit down to write them. The one exception to this rule is video game playing: my anticipated start date of January 1, 2010 hasn’t even arrived, and yet I’m already deep into passionate gaming.

Last week, I discussed my experiences with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and F-Zero: Maximum Velocity. I had already beaten those games by the time I wrote about them, and so, of course, I have moved on to yet more games. This week, I will be talking about some games that I am no where close to beating, Final Fantasy I and Final Fantasy II, from the Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls GBA collection.

The Dungeon’s Boss: Games Played, a Preview

Once my quest for a higher plane of gaming existence begins in earnest, I plan on making posts at least monthly in which I will detail those titles that I am either currently playing or have recently beaten. I will describe the joy and pain which they bring me, and generally treat my gaming collection like the beloved child that it is. Although that won’t be until 2010, I have games I’ve been playing that I’d like to talk about, some of which have been haunting me on the backlog for some time. Think of this as a sort of non-canonical prequel to those upcoming posts.

The Dungeon’s Boss: Controlling Handhelds

Preparations for my 2010 gaming strategy continue. I’ve spent a considerable amount of time debating with myself the particular issue of GameBoy games, and how to play them. I have a GameBoy, GBA, DS, Super GameBoy, and GameBoy Player, and just about any one or two of them are all that’s needed to get through my many pre-DS handheld games. Having said that, the only one that’s truly comfortable is the SNES controller that goes with the Super GameBoy, and that won’t play GBA games. The DS cuts into my hand, the GBA screen hurts my eyes, and the GameCube controller’s d-pad is horrendous.
