    How Super Mario 3D Land Saved The 3DS

    The 3DS is 7 years old. Just absorb that thought for a second. Man, I remember when the first 3DS came out in 2011, I was just entering secondary school! Now I’m in my second year of college and the thing is still alive and kicking! Well…depending on whose perspective it’s from. Despite not reaching the extreme levels of sales its predecessor once had, over the past 7 years, the 3DS has still managed to develop what is arguably Nintendo’s most impressive handheld lineup. From action games and platformers to RPGs and simulators, there was practically no genre that evaded the 3DS’ grasp. Add to that a robust indie lineup,…

    Beta64 – Kirby’s Adventure & Kirby’s Dream Land

    *Intro Music* Though hardcore platformers like Donkey Kong Country have always been some my favourite games in the genre, Some days I just want to sit down, relax and play a nice little game, Where I don’t have to worry about making pixel perfect split-second jumps with the time limit but within this niche sub-Genre, One mascot stands above the rest… I’m, of course, talking about… Bubsy. I mean Kirby. Sorry, I get those confused. Oh, What a series of games, classics I dare to say. Especially, Kirby’s Adventure on the NES. That’s my favourite of the series, and a game I’ve always been wanting to make an episode on,…

    Land acknowledgements: uncovering an oral history of Tkaronto

    Aahnii, Boozho, Sara Roque n-dish-ni-kaaz, Shebahonaning n-don-jibaa, Tkaronto in-day. Tkaronto, a Mohawk word: The place in the water where the trees are standing. The place where the fish weirs are. My dog and I spend a lot of time walking. It’s my favourite way to move through this city. For me, it’s the meditative action that isn’t about negotiating bike lanes or public transit. But a time to slow down and really try to see the world around me. Concrete sidewalks, parking lots–now covering the rivers and trails that once flowed freely. The Petun, the Huron Wendat, the Haudenosaunee the Anishnaabeg, the Métis, the Mississaugas, all made their homes here.…

    That Time Britain Burned Down The White House

    – Welcome to Ruining History. Today we’re gonna talk a lot and learn a little about the War of 1812. Guys, it’s a weird war. – What war was that? – It was the War of 1812.

    You Can Rent a House Here For Only €0.88 a Year…

    Just outside of Munich lies a sleepy village called Fuggerei, where the rent for a whole year is just under one Euro, 88 cents to be precise. So what do you get in exchange for your measly rent? A matchbox? A cupboard maybe? Is it made of strudel? No, you get a modestly spacious two-bedroom apartment made of stone. Is it in a dodgy area? No, Fuggerei is extremely safe and rather pretty if you ask me. It even sits inside its own walled enclave; people pay millions for that shit in America. The five gates of Fuggerei are locked every day at 10pm, blocking off any passage in or…
