I’m awash in games at this point. The three-day weekend gave me time to gorge myself on my entertainment of choice, and so pretty much everything I put up this week is going to be related to amusing one’s self with the help of a computer.
I apologize to those who are sick of Jade Empire, but I have another week of Jade Empire blather to stuff down your gullet. This will be a difficult time for all of us (except me.) but I’m sure we’ll get through it somehow.
Also, this behavior has even infected the webcomic, so that we can expect videogame-themed DMotR this week. I’m sorry. There’s nothing to be done about this.
Artless in Alderaan
People were so worried about the boring gameplay of The Old Republic they overlooked just how boring and amateur the art is.
Bethesda’s Launcher is Everything You Expect
From the company that brought us Fallout 76 comes a storefront / Steam competitor. It's a work of perfect awfulness. This is a monument to un-usability and anti-features.
Best. Plot Twist. Ever.
Few people remember BioWare's Jade Empire, but it had a unique setting and a really well-executed plot twist.
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.
Silent Hill Turbo HD II
I was trying to make fun of how Silent Hill had lost its way but I ended up making fun of fighting games. Whatever.
