Choice Provisions is looking to mix things up with micro-games in Runner3. In the series’ upcoming third entry, all playable characters will have their own original target micro-game.

Choice Provisions talked about the challenges in implementing the feature through a blog post:

“The biggest challenge here is to keep the micro-game as simple as it was in Runner2 for each character’s variation while at the same time making them all distinct from one another.

In game design, one often has to work within constraints, but when the constraints are so simplistic, as in this cannon micro-game, and you have to make so many variations, the constraints can feel overly restrictive.

Social news site Reddit is holding a Secret Santa event this year. Users were assigned a random person to give gifts to, and for one person in particular, she made out very well.

The Secret Santa for Aerrix, out of all people, was Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. Now… why are we covering this here? The news itself is pretty incredible, but Gates actually packed in some Nintendo goodies. Aerrix received a plethora of items, but the ones we care about were nearly all Zelda-related: mittens (including matching ones for her dog), a tie blanket, and picture frame. If that wasn’t enough, Gates also sent the NES Classic Edition. Oh, and a paper version of the final form Master Sword from Skyward Sword.

Here are some of the photos and excerpts from Aerrix’s story:
