Darius Drake's Blog


I'm a game developer, and I enjoy learning about what makes good games, too. My favorite overall "game making" company is Nintendo, and I especially like the Pikmin series. I'm a longtime Kirby fan, but anything that's unique and interesting will get my attention.

I'm looking forward to mastering the Animal Crossing Villager on Smash Bros U!

Why is Nintendo doing things that seem counter-intuitive? And do they actually see potential in the Wii U for the years to come? Read this blog post for my opinion.
