There was a legend, when I was a kid. A legend of the ‘minus’ world or ‘negative’ world. But how could you get to it? Try as we might, we never could. But this person can:
The video embedded above, courtesy of GamesRadar, showcases a new mode for Mortal Kombat on the PS Vita, called the Bonus Challenge Tower. This tower lets you play through what are essentially a series of mini-games all designed to take advantage of the mobile platform’s capabilities. Some require you to tap or swipe the screen, some use the accelerometer. My questions for you are, do you think these help or hinder the game play? How would you feel if they were part of the primary game play? Would you be more or less apt to play the game if it were like this throughout? Would you play the challenge tower, even if it is just as a novelty, or will you avoid it completely? Discuss below, if you’re so inclined, and if you do, I’ll join in! 🙂
Video of the week time. As a follow up to Thursday’s blog post, I present you with this brief bio, from ESPN.
