Weekends are for wasting time and reading links on the Internet.

  • Ben Bertoli of Kotaku makes the case for a Wario Bros. game. Nintendo could stand to make a game with a goofy comedic anti-hero. Hey Nintendo, if you make a Wario Bros. game, I will buy one of your consoles.
  • Alex Wiltshire of Rock Paper Shotgun invites folks from Metanet Software, the developers of N and N++, to discuss the jumping mechanic in their games. I was a huge fan of N in the day, and this is a really interesting read for someone who’s interested in the minutiae of designing mechanics.

That’s all for now. Ciao.
