Rutskarn is really making me want to play Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. A game filled with constant lampshading? Sign me up! It’s hard to imagine something so smart and self-aware came from Techland, since their previous game had been so stupid and tone-deaf. To be clear, I haven’t played either game.
What were we talking about again? Oh right. Tomb Raider.
So this part of the game is pretty cool. Everything’s gorgeous, there’s tons of platforming, plenty of puzzle solving, a moderate amount of combat and very little cutscenes. We’re in full-on adventure mode and aren’t slamming between “Romancing the Stone” and “Heart of Darkness”.
The Best of 2011
My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2011.
PC Hardware is Toast
This is why shopping for graphics cards is so stupid and miserable.

This mess of dross, confusion, and terrible UI design is the storefront the big publishers couldn't beat? Amazing.
Secret of Good Secrets
Sometimes in-game secrets are fun and sometimes they're lame. Here's why.
The Witch Watch
My first REAL published book, about a guy who comes back from the dead due to a misunderstanding.
