Limited Run Games – Broken Age

This is probably a little bit more for the collector in your life, but I have to share. I just got my copy of Broken Age in the mail. An actual hard copy of the game! That’s what Limited Run Games does. They take digital games and produce a small amount of physical copies for sale. 

I love Broken Age. It’s done by Tim Schafer and Double Fine Productions after all. As in the people who made Grim Fandango and Psychonauts. Broken Age is a fun puzzle game where two timelines intertwine. You have a girl who is being offered up as a cake sacrifice to protect her village on one side and on the other is a boy who’s lived a sheltered life on a space ship run by an overprotective computer he calls mom. I definitely recommend it. Problem for me was it crashed my iPad. So look at me all excited because now I can play it on my Vita! You can check out Limited Run Games to see what games they have previously sold and see what they plan to sell. Fair warning these games sell out fast. And if you want to play Broken Age, check out the digital downloads for PS4, Vita, Android, and iOS. Age range here is as early as your kids can read. Go have fun!

Wednesday Art – Jet Set Radio

Here’s some cool artwork for Jet Set Radio from the Sega Dreamcast. I got to play Jet Set Radio Future on the Xbox. The game itself is a crazy wonderful mix of rollerblading platforming while tagging walls with graffiti (each character had their own unique style) set to the music of an underground radio station DJ. That music is still amazing. Some of the best ever in a video game. All that was wrapped up in this comic book style art. JSRF used cell shading in the game which for me was a first. It gave the comic book style an even more gritty/ethereal edge to it. If you ever get the chance, I would always recommend these games.

At Least Let Me Get One Hit In

The big guys are off camping this weekend so I got Knack for Little Guy and me to play. It actually has decent couch co-op. He’s playing the silver knack secondary character, by choice, and he can still fight and jump and do everything my character can do. Except he’s too good! I can’t even get a hit on the bad guys unless I pull out a special move, because he’s already gotten in there and beaten them all up! And then he turns around and gives me health because apparently I need it…. I’ve created a monster.

Goofy Video Game Stuff My Kids Have Done #3

Right now the kids are upstairs having a Nerf war. With Character classes. I can hear them bantering back and forth about what types of ammo, weaponry, and attacks the different classes can use. I asked them to describe them to me:

  • Outlaws – can use any long range weapon, certain close range weapons, cannot steal or back stab, but can lie
  • Knights – can use any melee weapon, crossbows, and flails and they have armor which gives them one extra life
  • Ranger – can use any long range weapon , but cannot use close range and has an incredible speed boost
  • Bandits – can use any long range weapon and can steal and lie and can trade for anything once, but they cannot do any close range attacks
  • Thieves – can use small close range and small long range attacks and they can steal and lie and backstab
  • Gladiators – can use crossbow and short sword, but no shield 
  • Steampunker – can use any weapon, does incredible damage, but can only move five steps per five seconds

The eldest’ base is Makerhaven. He has parts and long range weapons as resources in his base and his base has the ability Maker which allows him to modify weapons at any time. He also has the special ability of Tinker, which allows him to use a certain bow.

Makerhaven and Pandaria’s weapons stashes

The youngest’s base is Pandaria. He has books and close-range weapons as resources in his base. His base has Panda Power – if anyone hits one of the stuffed pandas in his base, they loose a third of their life. His special ability is Swordplay which allows him to challenge anyone to a sword fighting duel. 

This is so exhaustive it cracks me up. I think they spent more time designing their game than playing it. After they told me all about it, the youngest said, “What if someone actually turned this into a video game?” The eldest replied, “We could do that. ” Yes, yes you could boys.
