I will never understand the childish anger of internet gamer bros. I get the social/cultural/political roots of it, I just can’t imagine being so angry over something so miniscule. I like to believe it’s just teenagers who don’t know any better, but it’s so often overemotional adult men. It blows my mind every time…
The Darkness 1 is definitely a classic, and it along with Fable 2 are the games I most want to see ported to PC. The Darkness 2 I do like for going with more of a comic book aesthetic though, but 1 is still special.
Hm, I’d never actually heard of The Darkness before. idk if it would be my kinda thing, and even if it were it sounds like it would be tricky to get ahold of, but it looks interesting!
Pyre! Finally. I loved Transistor and Bastion and have been waiting to dive into Supergiant’s latest ever since I played the demo at PAX East last year.
I got work every day for the foreseeable future, so not much time for gaming. Plus I also got my own birthday dinner this weekend (I just learned it was happening; my birthday isn’t actually until Wednesday!) so I got even less time than usual.
Something interesting to mention about The Darkness is the fact that you can watch To Kill A Mockingbird in its entirety at the one point in the game.
I’m at the final boss’s doorstep in Bloodborne, but I’m taking the time to wrap up one last optional area. Haven’t bought the DLC, but at this point I’ve had my fill and am ready to move onto something else (hopefully Sekiro whenever I pick it up).
Starting a new game plus run of AC: Odyssey again after going back to my original game to wrap up side quests that I missed because they were hidden in the world. So, Kassandra is going into NG+ at level 65 instead of level 61. So there’s that.
Yea that website won’t last, at least not as “apolitical”, because that’s not possible. Everything is political. Do you have a job? Do you get paid money? Do you get taxed? Do you use that money to buy video games at a physical or digital store? Are the employees there getting paid? Is there a manager and regular…
Girls, gays, ethnics, the usual alt-right blather. It’s nothing new and nothing particularly interesting either. I wish them all the success of Voat and Conservapedia.
Art is political by its nature. Games are art. Ergo, games are political. Exclusively Games are willfully idiotic for pretending otherwise.
Still on that AC Odyssey kick. Just wrapped up the Cult plot thread so that’s two of three plots in the game. And the last one I’m now convinced had eff all to do with this game and everything to do with linking this game to the AC continuity. It hasn’t been mentioned at all save for the Animus stuff and when I came…
The link goes to a dead Facebook page.
The links don’t seem to work for me right now. I get a Facebook error.
I’ve been trying to get into programming as of late, so I might just use this opportunity to create a program for myself to log it instead. Would be a good exercise in creating a database app. :)
*tugs at collar uncomfortably* oof yeah I’m married ovah heah
Nice! I love reading this ever year you’ve done it.
So glad you were able to do this again this yeat, Astro! I love reading how much you saved. I shudder to think what I spent and I would never
Games in 2018 continued to astound— it’s just too bad I didn’t play as many as I would have liked. Because that means not only did I miss some great experiences but I’m certain I missed some fantastic soundtracks, too.
