This month's IndieBox was my favorite coach co-op space adventure game: Lover's in Dangerous Spacetime. An added bonus of getting this great game was it came with really fun things!
Can you guess which item was my favorite?
Okay to be fair my favorite object in any IndieBox is probably always the instruction manual. I love the little note from the developer and just flipping through it. Surprisingly, I miss this little booklet most from newer console releases even if I never used them to look up the controls. I felt like every time I got to look through the manual as a kid I learned a little tidbit about the game.
The previous month Indiebox decided to spice up how they distribute the game and start creating these amazing,soft flashdrives in the shape of characters, and objects from the game of the month. I love this addition since it gives me yet another thing to display, (plus chances are I'm going to just redeem the steam code for the game). However, since Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is couch co-op this might actually make this a great portable experience when I head over to friends house or if I'm doing a game night!
Honestly, if you're not subscribed I'm not sure what you're waiting for. March's game has already been announced as Assault Android Cactus and sign up ends soon! Next month will be the first month Indiebox officially introduces me to a game I've never played, but given their track record of amazing titles I'm not worried.
Stay tune til next month's box! :)
The excitement, and the realization that so many marvelous things were jammed into one weekend.
PAX South! Global Game Jam! Street Fighter V beta!
"I want it all, I want it all, I want it all."
I didn't realize when grabbing my ticket for PAX South that it would land on the weekend of the Global Game Jam. This year it was a resolution of mine to get back into game jams, and now I'm going to miss the biggest one of the year. Crap.
Oh, Street Fighter V also decided to be awesome and give us an another free beta weekend before it releases next month.
Needless to stay, I stayed home and played Street Fighter, canceled my hotel and sold my PAX badge to some neighbor kid who plays Clash of Clans all day.
San Antonio is a beautiful city. While it feels pretty touristy, it had some great gems waiting for me within walking distance of my hotel! My favorite is a shop called Belgian Sweets, they made that delicious looking waffle and they serve all that chocolate seen in the images above. If I return to PAX South in future years, I'm always going to remember this shop and stop at least once!
The whole city seems full of great shops like this, and I can say as far as locations go this is the best con I've been to.
I thought the diversity lounge was really awesome! I'm really grateful that I ran across an image Geeks Out had posted otherwise it would have flown off my radar.
I've been on the fence about the subscription service IndieBox, but there is so much love and care pack into this collection that I couldn't help but signing up for next month. It also helped that the February's game is Lover's in a Dangerous Spacetime.
