Choice Provisions blog - It's SPAAAACE!

Hi there! I’m Jason. I don’t know if you’ve heard, but we’re making a game called Space Dave! It’s kind of a sequel to a game designed and developed by our MiniVisions team called Woah Dave!, which we released almost one year ago.

Woah Dave was a surprise hit for us, and we wanted to give Dave Lonuts the chance to continue his wacky and bizarre adventures. What we didn’t want to do, however, was just release a game that could have been an update (and we already did that with the free Woah Dave Deluxe! expansion.)

Chronus Arc - review

This is part of a Chronus Arc review over on NLife...

Chronus Arc is competent RPG that fails to deliver on one of the most important aspects of the genre: the story. It delivers an uninspiring narrative, coupled with a forgettable soundtrack and fast travel and escape mechanics that, while solid, rob the game of any sense of difficulty. If you're looking purely for old-school RPG mechanics, you may have some fun with Chronus Arc. Otherwise, you may want to look to another one of the many great RPGs the 3DS has to offer.

Hangin' with Mr. Koopman - NintenDaan Wednesday

Here's an important bit of information. Due to time zone differences, the wonderful NintenDaan will actually turn 26 RIGHT when his round starts today! I know...shitty way to start off your birthday. Both of us realized this just earlier today! I promise I wouldn't make Daan work if I knew his birthday would fall right in line with his usual Wednesday block! I'm not THAT heartless!

So yes, while it may be the wee hours of the morning for Daan, it's still the start of his birthday. Please send him all the wonderful wishes you can muster up! Either comment here or hit him up on Twitter!

He's got the site from now until around 10 PM ET. That's when I come back from dress clothes shopping (shudder) and get back to work. See you later tonight, gang!
