Thank you. It wasn’t the work with the forklifts that bounced me out, but (ironically, since it’s my career) it was the racing that I struggled to optimize to the necessary win to advance the story. This coincided with a time in my life where my career took priority anyway, but Shenmue, and to a greater extent, the… Read more
Codemasters games usually have a broad band of accessibility options to them while remaining grounded in some reality/relevance to life, so I’d recommend something like GRID or DiRT, where you’re going to have fun, too. Project CARS has a nice variety, and will even support PSVR! Maybe having headlook will help? Good… Read more
Thanks for the tip! I like that it’s silly enough for those who aren’t Homestar Runner fans can still get a good laugh from it, and the Rule Book Album will be great to listen to together...
I have Tragdar(Trogdor): The Bard(Board) Game as well, but we haven’t gotten a group together yet to play! That sounds hilarious, and in a way I am disappointed that we all didn’t learn the end-game mechanic the way you did, but I can keep it a secret for the others when I finally do find folks to join in. I’m so glad… Read more
It would end up being some type of LocoRoco meets Thomas Was Alone meets Wonderful 101! For sure, unique verbs like “absorb”, “separate”, and “the boy Wonder Twin metamorphose” would be cool, especially if you could change states...I’m now imagining your composition being reactive to some materials, causing them to… Read more
I put Doom 2016 on “I’m Too Young To Die” and I’m happy with how I can just pick it up cold and enjoy it. It gives me a lot of satisfaction in killing without too much frustration because I’m not very good and still get the same platforming and puzzle solving exploration that also makes Doom fun.

As someone that was watching a scene analysis of Jurassic Park last night, and being blown away by the complexity of framing and positioning of characters in different moments of their journey through the film, I can understand why they might have phoned-home the artwork. As an engineer and not an artist, I can only… Read more
Derrick Sanskrit was just talking about Telling Lies this week, and I love that these games have a co-op/party capability to them... though it sounds like this one might be a little too intimate for certain types of parties.
Oh, boy, this weekend is busy for both games and work! I’m in St. Louis for work, but I… Read more
For some unexplained reason, I’m trying to play games on three fronts this weekend: I have Animal Crossing: New Leaf in my 3DS, and I’m cleaning up all the daggone flowers that have overrun my town as a result of that Keep the Town Beautiful ordinance. I did it to reduce picking weeds if I left the game for a month,… Read more
It is tough to have an introspective experience during an interactive one, their prefixes inherently contradict each other, but certainly sometimes it’s able to be pulled off quite well, it’s just that the player needs to do the heavy lifting and the game needs to stand back and let it happen. If I wasn’t still trying…
