I think this is a first for Spoiler Warning. Mumbles didn’t make it this week. Chris wandered off or got distracted. My computer crashed. This means we were down to a single commenter – brave Rutskarn – who could not himself see the the stream. For a brief moment, nobody was watching Josh. It’s a miracle the show survived.
When Rutskarn was talking about a game that he worked on, he was referring to Will Fight for Food, a game that seems to be constructed with the premise of “What if there was a roleplaying game where you could beat up NPCs that annoy you?”. I got some genuine laughs out of it, and the trailer is brilliant.
Also note the point at 5:50 where Rutskarn totally nails the rhythm and style of the typical Twilight Zone outro. He does this without preparing beforehand. He makes it up as he goes, and is able to get all the way through without pausing or breaking character. I occasionally imitate the writing styles of other people. Sometimes I even imagine I’m good at it. But I can’t do it live, without preparation, while also doing a vocal impression. So that was a humbling moment for me.
So that was the Silver Shroud quest. Maybe it was a great quest, maybe it was merely adequate, but most people seem to agree that it was one of the high points of Fallout 4.
PC Hardware is Toast
This is why shopping for graphics cards is so stupid and miserable.
Final Fantasy X
A game about the ghost of an underwater football player who travels through time to save the world from a tick that controls kaiju satan. Really.
Batman: Arkham City
A look back at one of my favorite games. The gameplay was stellar, but the underlying story was clumsy and oddly constructed.
Bad and Wrong Music Lessons
A music lesson for people who know nothing about music, from someone who barely knows anything about music.
Why I Hated Resident Evil 4
Ever wonder how seemingly sane people can hate popular games? It can happen!
