From Asteriods, to Zelda

Filed under: Uncategorized — jkaplan7 @ 7:27 pm

Hey guys, welcome to From Asteroids, to Zelda, an outsiders look on the insider business of designing video games. Everything from development, art styles, story, to sound design as well as where the industry is heading. This isn’t going to be all about hardcore gamer knowledge, I’ll do my best to keep things in layman’s terms.

I’ve been playing video games since I was little, I remember playing Sonic on the Sega Genesis in the 3rd grade. I’ve grown up at the same time as the industry. In those years, I learned a lot about development and as I entered the later years of high school I became more active such as learning coding and design programs as well as developing my own small games. Really I just wanted to introduce this blog and myself next time we’ll get more into the meat of things.

I’d like to end each blog with some the games I’m playing, both for casual gamers and hardcore players.
-Casually playing: Rock Band 2 (Xbox360) and Super Mario Bros Wii (Wii). Both are great games to just pick up and play alone or with friends.
-Hardcore games: Demon’s Souls (Playstation 3) and Mass Effect 2 (Xbox 360). Both are challenging games for those looking for something a little more skilled based.

Happy gaming readers!

  1. I’ve really been wanting Super Mario Bros. for the Wii, since I always thought it was inconvenient that those old Mario games were only for one or two players. But with the $40+ price tag, I’ll have to wait!
