Once upon a time I made a blog about video games. And this is what's left of it (mostly tweets).

Obviously it doesn’t help that I got a taste of Driveclub VR last week, but I don’t think that’s the whole reason.

Everyone said Forza Horizon 3 was the best car game ever so of course I’m finding the tone and structure less enjoyable than Horizon 2.

“30% installed, but you can start playing right away!”

starts the game

“Forza Horizon 3 needs an update”

I hate this console so much.

Finally found the one place in the Xbox dashboard where the installation progress counter isn’t stuck at 0%, so I guess I’m fine.

I deleted the game to start over and now installation is stalling at 4%. If my Forzabox is dying just before its last hurrah I’m gonna be 😡

Left the Xbox on to install the game and do its thing while I worked. It turned itself off because I was idle and now appears to be stuck 🙄

Forza Horizon won’t be here until tomorrow and I need to take my mind off PSVR and maybe I should have bought it online even at 20€ more.

RT @kezamacdonald: Some of the comments on Palmer Luckey’s now-deleted Reddit account are quite, quite extraordinary. Amazing how fast money can strip empathy.

Got a few days to see if I cancel my Forza Horizon preorder. Feels silly to waste time on my 20-inch screen just before I get Driveclub VR.

I don’t give a fuck about the iPhone 7 anymore.

Didn’t seem possible to disable traction control in Driveclub VR; looks like they want to make sure you won’t do donuts until you throw up.

La démo Playstation VR est à l’angle de la rue des Archives et il y en a pour tous les goûts, si vous n’y allez pas vous êtes de gros nazes.

I don’t think it made me queasy (unlike Rush of Blood) but the lack of G-forces when you hit the brakes hard in Driveclub is extremely weird. Wheeeee! Suddenly you’re in zero-G!

And Rush of Blood is very good at what it does but oh my god demoing a rollercoaster to VR virgins are you fucking mad?

The VR mode in Bound is definitely pretty but having to keep teleporting manually in addition to controlling the character is too much of a pain in the ass.

The Tomb Raider PSVR experience is uninteresting and looks like shit because they’re going for photorealism without the power to achieve it.

Went to a PSVR showcase and somehow chose all of the worst demos. Except for Driveclub — Driveclub on a wheel is awesome.

I need a wheel.

love Rez but, judging by the tone of everyone’s previews, there must have been MDMA in the water at the hands-on event.

“Rez Infinite: Area X reveal trailer”

I guess the music isn’t as bad as Child of Eden’s and I’ll get used to it.

I like to think the odds are pretty good that SteamVR will be compatible with Playstation VR headset and controllers by the time I get a PC.

19 September

It doesn’t look like I’ll get a PC+Rift in the next couple of months, so I couldn’t possibly risk missing PSVR’s release.

Gave in and preordered the PSVR headset. Wanted to wait in case they released a complete bundle, but I’ll look for secondhand Moves instead.

Almost lost my streak on a stupid mistake — I was so close to giving up

The Forza Horizon 3 demo was full of diverse cars at launch, but now all the drivatars are driving the same blue BMW we’re all locked to 😄

Metal Gear Survive gameplay video

I don’t really enjoy wave-based survival modes, but this looks more than decent.

16 September

For a game where your gear levels up, customization is so much better than The Division’s

Didn’t expect to have so much fun in this game #PS4share

Two things Overwatch gets right that For Honor mysterioulsy chooses not to: your allies are always the same color, and you can change heroes at respawn.

I’m finding For Honor completely amazing (in 4v4, mostly) but I’ve never played, say, Chivalry, so what do I know.
