I can't recall any video games made from a movie mostly involving black people. A black film I define as a film which is produced or financed, written, directed, and mostly acted by black people. Every other film where black actors are mostly utilized is a non black film that mostly involves black people, ala Black PAnther.
With definitions out of the way, will you want to see a Candy man video game? the way most black people love the horror genre, especially in the usa, plus the way most bl
My dearest followers,
I don’t know where you are or when exactly you are reading this. I just hope that this last and final blog post finds you safe and healthy. However I have decided to leave this account. I will miss my time here and I will miss creating post for all of you my dear readers and loyal followers. You all have motivated me and I hope I've done the same for all of you my dear readers.
You are strong and brave and you can get through anything. Hopefully my pos
I think it’s overlooked that the big Japanese publishers—including Nintendo—were looking to the West long before Sony’s decline in Japan.Like they were looking to the west on NES, SNES, PSX too!I think the other thing overlooked is that Nintendo was disproportionately wrt home consoles losing ground in Japan starting with N64. Nintendo was forced to confront shortfall in the Japanese market long ago and this eventually led to it, with DS/3DS/Wii U doing disproportionately well in Japan.Iwata Nin
So, MHRise is the best selling third party game on Switch with 7M of units
Gamasutra - Monster Hunter Rise has shipped 7 million copies in two months
Considering that it was released on one console (PC version is still not available)I was thinking how important this is. While MH has been with Nintendo consoles since many years ago (mostly because the portable consoles) this is the first Non-Nintendo Third Party Exclusive that is not a port from current or last gen. Also it doesnt fea
Did you know? Memorial Day was originally a Black holiday called “Decoration Day”. It was a celebration to thank the Black Union soldiers who’d fought and given their lives in the Civil War.
The first Decoration Day was held in 1865 in Charleston, South Carolina. The Union army had just successfully defeated the Confederate army. Black Union soldiers played a very large part in this victory.
On May 1, around 10,000 free Black people gathered in the historic Hampton Park to pay their r
Konami will soon surpass 3 million sales on the Switch and Baseball Spirits & Yu-gi-oh launching this year they should have no problems reaching something like 4.5 million. If they end up launching Winning Eleven on the Switch it could very well be an even higher total. On their heals will be Capcom with Rise, Stories 2, Generations Ultimate & Ace Attorney both companies will soon be uncontested at the top.Square does have Dragon Quest III Remake launching this year, so overall they shou
For quite some years I have been dreaming about a crossover racing game which would include Wave Race, 1080° Snowboarding, and Excitebike. With 2021 being N64’s 25th anniversary, I thought that now might as well be the time to share my wish.
Two of these three series got their life started on Nintendo 64 (Wave Race and 1080° Snowboarding) and did receive sequels since, but even those were quite some time ago. And though Excitebike got a spiritual successor in Excite Truck (with the OG title
It has nothing to do with the source material, the fundamental problem is that the film studios don't understand what part of the story in the game is appealing.
With a lot of horror game adaptations, the focus tends to be shifted away from horror and towards action. This to me shows that the writers watched a let's play or just saw some scenes or pictures. They miss how much more terrifying it is to exist in that world rather than watching it from outside. So, th
Nintendo's more popular handhelds have had very long lifespans, in the neighborhood of 10 years. I think the Nintendo Switch will wind up in that territory.The thing is Nintendo has been hinting at this publicly too. For the last year or so, they keep talking about how the Switch is just entering the middle of its lifespan. So it’s got a ways to go.I do think it’s worth mentioning something that will probably come up. There’s a theory that Nintendo is done with generations as we know them, and i
I had $63000 in student loans for a college degree. When I graduated from school I had about slightly less at a 7.45% interest rate. At first I tried to get my career started so the loans grew. I remember every time I would get a statement I couldn’t sleep for a few nights. Watching that balance grow was very uneasy. I ended up having a baby (very expensive, so I was really in a mess. Eventually I got tired of the hustle and became a certified armed agent. My income gradually grew and I started
I tend to enjoy reading various articles on writing , the industry, the concepts, et cetera. parallel to craft articles. These topics can be fun or engaging. As some of you know, I have a controlled electronic footprint, meaning, I don't keep old posts. This blog never had fifteen posts and never will cause I don't like ejunk. But, I realize, aside my posts to what I created and create, I need a post to just chit chat if you will. So this post will serve that function, throug
Hello to the late readers,
Yes mind reading... In the year 2020, I said to myself, I will make a video game. It is not a hard task in all earnest. It is also not an easy task. The greatest challenge is... fun. Yes, the greatest challenge in making a video game is fun. When I was in college I made games few , excluding me, could master or have fun playing. I took the Will Wright masterclass on Video Game design. The best idea I garnered from it was the 365 game a day challenge. I thought to
Click Anza to start the game, Maliza to end it.
Listen to the music of Scott Joplin, the Ragtime dance, while you wait for the beats.
A Red beat is a date so great it is valued twice.
A green is a date that went well.
A pink is a date that is going poorly.
Click the red or green, don't click the pink, if you click anywhere inside the heart or outside the heart the game is over.
Do you have the patience to wait for love? Is love always at the end of the journey?

BlackGamesElite is a online club which I started to do two thing
1. Have a community considering Black people, a human community based on the auniversally accepted phenotypical range of skin, in relation to all elements of the video game industry, from developers to culture to characters in games or any other factor in said industry.
2. To have fun:)
