Inflection Pixel’s Ten Titles I Loved In 2012, Part One

Winner!

Welcome to 2013!  This is the year that I remember that I have a WordPress blog I used to write to!  Newly energized through the new year and a new job, I hope to (yet again) write a bunch more.  I’m going to start off light by slowly trickling out what I think is my favorite games out of the ones I’ve played last year.  Like last time, this isn’t a comprehensive list of the best of all games of 2012.  I didn’t get to play all the games I wanted to play, but out of the ones I did, these are the ones I liked the most.  So, be light on me, and let’s get this show on the road.

Inflection Pixel’s Ten Titles I Loved In 2010, Part Four

In harmony.

And now, without any further delay, the continuation of a series of blog posts I had intended to finish months ago.  Shameful.

Inflection Pixel’s Ten Titles I Loved In 2010, Part Three

On the snare.

Sorry for the gap.  There are actually more than four games that exist on my list of my ten favorite games of 2010.  Some of it had been written for a little while now during the middle of my semester, so they might be crap.  Ah well!

Inflection Pixel’s Ten Titles I Loved In 2010, Part One

A Hero is born.

Welcome to 2011!  I’m looking forward to another year of working myself to within an inch of my life and playing a lot of video games to compensate!  I wish you all sorts of goofy fun for your new year.

I have two New Year’s resolutions this year: 1. play more Dance Central, and 2. write more!  I started this blog so I can keep my mind juices flowing on what I see and ponder on about video games more often, but it only works when I actually write!  With a reduced credit hour load this semester, hopefully I can start fitting that in more often.  The spring semester has also started this week, so I decided to fit this in with my first burst of productivity for 2011.

To start off, I want to do a wide sweep of ten of my favorite things of 2010.  This is my personal list and it doesn’t approach close to exhaustive; I’m not a professional game reviewer nor do I have the time and money to play all the games I want.  I’m going to try to do two a post to get my wheels really spinning.  Here we go!…

intro

My name is Anthony Munar, a computer programmer in Utah. I also play a bunch of video games every now and then. I talk and think a lot about them, but I never really solidify those thoughts anywhere, and writing is something I like doing, so I thought I'd do it right here. I don't intend to be high-and-mighty authoritative about what I say and I don't really have any sort of standing in the games industry. This is just for me to muse about games when I want to.

Naming a blog these days was harder than I thought. In calculus, the inflection point on a curve is where its concavity changes between upwards and down. So, maybe, the inflection pixel is the pixel which represents something that turns my opinion around on a game, like the pixels representing a beam cannon firing in FreeSpace 2, the pixels representing a flying car wreck in Burnout, or the pixels representing my own sentry gun holding off an army in Team Fortress 2.

Using the word 'pixel' in naming something game-related seems clichéd, so sorry about that.
