The build engine is back with a brand new game.
“I’ve got another confession to make, I’m your fool.”
I’ve been away for a couple of months.
I was looking at the Launch trailer for Destiny 2 and as I found out that I was more interested by the second game and how everybody thought it was a good improvement, I got this strange question inside my mind.
For long, this warrior was and still is the butt of the joke in the Dragon Ball universe. Sure, Yamcha is still better than the average human being but next to Krilin (which is the best human on Dragon Ball’s version of earth and everybody knows that) he’s not that great. He even died more than the bald little guy. So…
Environmental storytelling is a term I never quite grasped before I played The Elder Scrolls IV : Oblivion, although it was there in other games (And even in the amazing The Eder Scrolls III : Morrowind) I only started to understand his meaning, and actually only learned that this way of storytelling a story has a…

I know, I know, what the hell with that title. But please, hear me out.
Fast travel is not inherently a bad mechanic, but strangely enough every time I’m putting the words “Fast travel” and “Evil” in the same sentence, no matter the context, there are always someone telling me something like “If you don’t like it, don’t use it” or “But it’s very convenient”.
You are among the first things I think about when I wake up.

If one day, I ever give you up.
It would be because I’m dead.
The end is near.
