One of the most exciting things from E3 2014 for me was No Man’s Sky, an exploration-heavy game that looks like the covers of 70s and 80s sci fi novels.  Even better, the game is entirely procedurally generated – like Minecraft, no two maps are the same.  Or, as the newly released trailer from The Game Awards puts it, every star, every planet is unique.  Even better than that, if you ask me?  The sci fi colour palette:  Yellow, green, and ochre; neon purple and pink over a field of black.  No Man’s Sky looks like it could be a welcome departure from two generations’ worth of games in sci fi settings slathered in grey, brown, and guns.

This one’s a lot shorter than last week, since it’s not an epic anniversary episode. But I have to apologize that it looks slightly different than the 200 previous installments, since I got a new computer, and Apple can’t stop “improving” their apps, so iMovie doesn’t do exactly what it used to.

But this week I recap my reviews that went up on this site, including Game of Thrones and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, then talk about the fascinating weirdness of Deadly Premonition, which I’ve only just discovered (because it’s free on PlayStation Plus!). Make the jump and watch!

Captain Toad’s bonus levels from Super Mario 3D World have been expanded and refined into the solo release Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for the Wii U! Well, it’s not technically a solo adventure since Toad shares screen time with Toadette, but they play identically (which is in keeping with recent comments from producer Koichi Hayashida regarding their gender). But is this charming-looking platform puzzler worth your time?

Telltale Games has launched yet another in its successful series of adventure games, this time licensing the popular Game of Thrones to create a six part game that takes place after season three of the HBO series and telling the tale of House Forrester, a family from the North loyal to the Starks. But seeing as how the Starks don’t fare well in Westeros, can you keep the Forresters from meeting the same fate? Your choices will decide.

Wootini’s Weekly Animal Crossing Diary

Dear Diary,

Well, the mass exodus from Geneva continues… or should I say ATTEMPTED mass exodus. Because I’m not letting anyone else go right now. And the weather took a turn for the seasonal, which is nice. But the real big news this week is that I apparently filled up my camera’s memory card! I know, right? Who even keeps track of such things! But towards the end of the week, I tried to take a picture, and was informed that I couldn’t because my camera was full. Now, I know I have a ton of room left on the card, so it must just be the camera that fills up and can’t take any more.

So I emptied out the SD card of photos and archived them so I can take some more next week. I guess I hadn’t realized how many pictures I’d taken, but since I’m documenting my entire life here in the lovely burg of Geneva, I guess I’ve taken more than I thought! You can see my most recent shots by reading on!

Apologies for the length of this one, but it’s a special super-sized anniversary episode! To commemorate reaching 200 episodes of this dang thing, I invited a couple of my Smash-loving friends over to try and teach me some basics and convince me that Super Smash Bros. is as awesome as they think it is.

After a few rounds of Smash (which constitutes the bulk of this episode, sorry!), do I agree? Make the jump, watch and find out!
