On November 2, 2018, Blizzard closed its annual BlizzCon keynote by announcing, to scattered applause, a Diablo game for phones. It was a baffling marketing decision that immediately set off controversy, as fans of Blizzard’s iconic action-role-playing game franchise loudly accused the company of neglecting its PC…
That game you bought last month isn’t the same game today. It’s almost certainly been patched, updated, rebalanced, and tweaked. The original version is shrinking from view as it washes downriver. But is it better now? Truer? Should you have played more of it back when you bought it, or waited?
Back in March I suffered a devastating injury and was rushed to the hospital for emergency open heart surgery. Since then I’ve spent every waking hour working my way back to you folks. Hi.

I’ve played No Man’s Sky for dozens of hours and never found a planet I wanted to call my home. This week, I finally did.
I’m so glad that this game continues to have such great legs. It really seems like there’s a really cool development story to be written here when all is said and done.
Whether you played No Man’s Sky two days ago or haven’t played since launch, returning to the game since the Next update is going to involve some adjusting. If you’re wondering how to make Warp Cells or where to find resources, here’s a few tips.
Conspiracy theory alert:
I had no difficulty completing Sonic Mania. This is not my first rodeo. I grew up with a Genesis because I wanted to one up my NES-owning friend down the street. Sonic has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Here’s a picture of the Sonic action figure I found at my parents’ house the other day. I…
People still ask this question?
A journey through the world of the freezing woods of the survival game The Long Dark has long been wonderful. The sky constantly changes; the snow is breathtaking. The sound design is rich and detailed, with your pack making different sounds depending on what you’re carrying. The quiet can be overwhelming, until it’s…
Of course Flunkstunck United is the real name of the team. Thanks for reading.
Right up until probably the last two minutes of Gone Home, I was convinced it was a horror game with a REALLY slow burn.
I like dark, twisted, tough, first person and melee. Give me all of those and I’m in heaven. I’m pretty much the same with my movies and books...at least the dark and twisted parts.
Main point for media preference: Darker and Edgier, along with deconstructions (scathing, if possible) of a game/media’s tropes.
I played Bioshock Infinite all the way through for the first time in The Collection and it ended up being one of the best games I’ve ever played (maybe even in my top 5). Truly something special. And I haven’t played it yet, but I understand that it has story DLC that connects to the original Bioshock.
I found Lovecraft through Fallout, after the Dunwich building had a big impact on me. I have a book of short stories by him. So I have to ask: do you find the stories somewhat difficult to read because there’s not much character interaction?
I got really into the 90's Berserk series after someone told me it was a big influence on the Dark Souls series. It’s something I probably would have never watched prior to being told there was a connection but I ended up absolutely loving it and it was nice seeing some of the influences. If you liked Bioshock 1/2 you…
I’ve been having this problem since the Switch came out. That charge % just does not display correctly for whatever reason. Been hoping they’d patch it, but apparently the system isn’t stable enough because that’s all the patches seem to fix.
