Spark Comic #19 - Blobtacular

Welcome to a Sparktacularly Blobtacular edition of Spark Comics. Today's topic, the Wii game A Boy and His Blob. Now, I had heard of this game for quite some time and have only recently gotten my hands on it. While I haven't had a chance to play it too much, been busy with other things like life, doing these comics, and playing Catherine, but I love the game. It has amazing animation quality and it is outrageously cute, not to mention it has decently solid gameplay mechanics and yet it's very underappreciated. Laugh if you want for loving a "kid's game", as you might call it, but I'm gonna have fun playing this and I highly recommend you buy it!

I know people write these things off as "silly kids games", but give other things a chance too and broaden your horizons. There is more to life than shooting games and hyper-realistic graphics. Even if the thing looks silly and for 5 year-olds, doesn't mean it's not worth your time.

P.S. Coincidentally, the same week I make this, Smosh made this video. This hilarious video shows the unfortunate state the games industry is in.
