As the years have passed and friends have begun to produce their progeny, part of me has started to think about how I want to raise my own little Nintendo gamer. Continue reading First-generation Nintendo dad
I think its fair to say that few years live up to the calibre of 2013. From the very beginning of the year with DMC, Dead Space, and Tomb Raider, it felt like developers had developed a mastery in both … Continue reading DoFuss’s Games of 2013
New Super Mario Bros holds a particularly conflicted place for me in my memories of 2010. After the usual blanket TV ad campaign (that Nintendo subjects Japanese audiences to) interest was high. Continue reading DoFuss 2010 – New Super Mario Brother (or “no more plurals”).
We are back for the almost-last DoFuss Show. December will see the last DoFuss Show with my return from Japan to the UK. As I won’t be in the ‘land of the rising sun’ any more, the opening lyrics claim that I am ‘the number one gaijin, the man in Japan who can’ will become hopelessly inaccurate so (as we can’t be bothered to rewrite the theme tune) we decided to cancel the show.

Continue reading The DoFuss Show – Some thoughts on E3 and Pierce Brosnan.
It has been a long week, in no way helped by the fact that we had to record this show twice thanks to technical problems. Fortunately the dry run meant that even with my general exhaustion we were able to keep the show mostly on track, and when we didn’t it was at least funny. Continue reading The DoFuss Show – 29 out of 100.
Gaming news and talk of what we have been playing sits as ever at the front of the show, but this time the feature topping our metaphorical cake is whether playing online games could make us better people. This is an idea put forward by Jane McGonigal, a designer at the Institute for the Future, during her talk at TED in February. While it may seem like a bizarre idea, much of what she said got me thinking that there maybe something to it, as did looking at her online games that have been designed to harness the power of the game playing public for good.
