Grethiwords: Wonderful Backlog Onion

Since blogging on Destructoid, I haven�t done as many stupid �update on what games I�ve been playing/thinking about/excited for recently�-type blogs as I used to. I guess I feel like there�s more pressure here to better develop my ideas into something more fully-formed � something with a point � lest I appear in the recaps under �could be better� and feel bad for pushing more worthy blog posts off the first page.

But then there are times when I�m inspired to think about videogames enough that I just want to unite morph my random unconnected thoughts into a giant fist and punch my blog with demented prattle. And anyway, random blogs �because videogames� are in fashion�now, so let me be!

Anyway, I declare this a new segment on my blog (meaning I might do another one ever): Grethiwords! I write the words about the videogames! Because I�ve been thinking about the videogames! Videogames!


And now for something completely different. I did a blog about Love-de-Lic recently, which I�m actually kind of proud of, although it�s secretly just a romantic love letter to game director Yoshiro Kimura. There�s a scene in his game Chulip where the boy writes his first love letter, and that scene makes me so happy I want to cry.

Anyway, I didn�t know what he was up to now when I wrote that blog, but I just found out, from Podtoid of all places. He�s started an indie company called Onion Games and, as discussed on Podtoid, he has a twitter account in which he writes from the perspective of a sentient onion. It is amazing. But even more amazing to me is his blog/website, started mid-September. He writes diary updates like this one, and somehow, because of the cartoons he draws with it, and because of the way it�s written, in broken English, it somehow captures that mixture of child-like innocence and serious feelings from his games that I always find so beautiful and makes me want to cry so. I love it so much!

He also posts pixel art on the blog. Like this:

Isn�t it the best?! Look at it!! <3

Anyway, I still have no idea what kind of game he�s working on, but according to the blog, �Onion games is making game happily�, and I couldn�t be happier to read that.
