I’m very glad you enjoyed Wishbringer so much! As you say, it’s a really streamlined, solid, and refined take on the core components of the earlier Zork and Enchanter titles. Specifically designed to help entice newcomers to the many wondrous worlds of Infocom— it’s sensational to know its virtues still hold up today. Read more

Even having been of a certain age where I watched Lawnmower Man with my parents, bug-eyed, imagining the non-horror-movie implications of the technology, before being abruptly pushed out of the living room during an awkward sex scene, I’ve been slow to embrace VR. Even with games like Catlateral Damage and Viscera Read more

I just finished The Last of Us Remastered (both the main campaign and the Left Behind side story) over a very explosive 4th of July weekend (seriously...every single neighbor was setting off fireworks throughout the night). There’s probably some thematic resonance there, but I’m too lazy to look for it. I started both Read more

Replaying Last of Us 2, for two reasons.

One, to have a “gamey” playthrough, as my first was a “story” playthrough. Naughty Dog does an absolute top-tier of a job of immersion in its modern games if you let it — “let it” meaning skip the desire to put the main plot on hold to poke around. You always can tell where Read more

Having spent most of the week grinding my way to getting a better quality rocket launcher, last night I finally completed Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Which, as I said a few weeks ago, has been far better than an unnumbered MGS game originally released on PSP has any reason to be. Only gripe is that, as with so Read more

That is the problem with these sprawling IPs. You can’t keep straight with the tons of material and it creates an ever constricting backlog of continuity. Read more

Dragon Ball was one of those phenomena that I was born like a week too late to appreciate. It felt like there were a few people my age hanging onto their childhood shouting, “Yes, Saturday morning cartoons! This is my jam!” but I was more into Frasier in middle school. And, presumably, puffing my billiard pipe Read more

I’m going to start off talking about tabletop, since I managed to finally get in some Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition action. As I’ve mentioned before, we have a local gaming group Goblins & Growlers which does drop-ins and one-shots in breweries. Said one-shots do fit into an overarching narrative so it’s a semi Read more

I bet once they get around to a game focusing on the Saga of Yamcha, then the franchise will have reached the appropriate stopping point.

You still earn credits like you would key with the rocket pass. Except there’s no credits for non premium users. Used to be that you’d get free decrypters, which were keys with probably a worse RNG attached.

I'm shoving the discourse in the garbage where belongs and playing Pokemon Sword this weekend, in between looking up old cartoon shorts on Disney+.

I’m gonna try to finish up Death Stranding this weekend. Loving it so far

So I’m kind of interested in finding a good racing game. I have historically been AWFUL at racing games, so I’d like to find something with a good learning curve. Forza Horizon 4 has some neat quality of life stuff from what I’ve seen, but I don’t have an XBox One and there is NO effing way my laptop can run something Read more

That’s a pretty nifty idea! A Waluigi sort of take on WarioWare’s chaos fueled fun, only more centered towards messing around with the Mushroom Kingdom’s denizens.

I don’t know if it was an article or comment but the other day I saw the best take on this, which was essentially that Goose shouldnt be in smash, but rather UGGs developers should make a waluigi game in the goose style where you prank other Nintendo characters.
