Lately, I have put much thought into usability in video games. Back in the days, we were used to games being not-so-user-firendly. Such as Super Mario, a platformer that doesn’t let you save is just as usable as Microsoft Word without save feature. Of course, if you could save your progress anytime in Super Mario, it would be as usable as Word when it comes to saving, but it would take a part of the game out. It would become too easy if you never had to start from the beginning after dying. Therefore, there’s a tradeoff! 🤔 (more…)

Lately I have been putting a great deal of my free time to Pokémon Sun for Nintendo 3DS. So much so that I thought that writing a review was the way to go. 👍

What makes Pokémon Sun so special is that it’s a perfect mixture of old and new. Old in the sense that it has surprisingly many old Pokémon from the previous generations. On the first island, you can bump into a Growlithe, Zubat, Slowpoke and so on. This is cool, because you don’t feel too lost with the game and all of its new Pokémon. Some old Pokémon have a slightly different form in Alola region to spice them up. (more…)
