Hello again! Just a wrap-up of my writing that appeared on other sites last week.
For PC Gamer:
- In my weekly mod column, I take a look at a Spelunky mod that replaces monsters, items, weapons, music, and other assets with elements from the Metroid series. It’s incredibly well-done. It doesn’t change the gameplay, but you have to relearn which monsters are which so you know which monsters do what. It’s fun!
- In the second part of my Rust diary, I experience the perils of home ownership, namely, that once you have a home, people know where you live. And they start stopping by. Often, in the middle of the night. Often, to kill you.
For Rock, Paper, Shotgun:
- My Lighthouse Customer column takes a look at Arcadecraft, a simulation game about managing a video arcade in 1980. I enjoyed it while being absolutely terrible at it.
Hey Are You Cool:
- I added a couple entries on my ongoing DayZ tumblr. I find it interesting that I can spend hours on a full server and never see another player, yet sometimes on a server with only three people on it, we all wind up in the same building at the same time.
