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

Surely I trust Rockstar, but I can’t imagine how switching between characters wouldn’t kill what little narrative immersion GTA can provide.

Xbox now supports 32GB sticks because people’s needs evolve and it’ll take at least until 2016 anyway before larger sticks are created.

Wonder if Molyneux has a switch in his office for when people get tired of Curiosity and it’s time for the next layer to be the last.

The Sleeping Dogs demo is pretty tempting. I like the fighting much better than Arkham’s (is it faster?); wish the demo had some driving.

Hold on, the Forza Horizon intro video, where did they film this? I never thought those “festivals” were a real life thing.

And, yeah, Forza Horizon goes to the top of my wishlist, as it would. But I need a decent wheel for it, so it’ll have to wait.

I only hope the controller bugs (losing acceleration every so often) are limited either to the demo or to my third-party gamepad.

Play Letterpress from two alternating devices and keep wondering which games are new and which have been resurrected by Game Center sync fails.

17 November

Oh, Enslaved… your messy controls, obnoxious camera, and checkpoints before unskippable cutscenes.

18 November

Can’t change Enslaved’s difficulty mid-game (actually, mid-chapter). I’m stuck with unfun combat between the two watchtowers. I’m out.

Who thought it’d be a good idea to have entire stretches where the upgrade shop is unavailable? Save for an expensive upgrade, get stuck.

Loving The Darkness 2, but why the hell did the demo spoil something the enemy reveal that happens several hours into the game?

I suppose I should find it comforting that the Steam client is just about as crappy on Windows as it is on OS X.

I bought Psychonauts in a previous sale and only got around to trying it today. God I hate WASD+mouse. I just can not play that way.

25 November

Argh, j’avais pas envie de jouer à Quantum Conundrum mais à 3,74 € ça serait jeter de l’argent par les fenêtres de ne pas l’acheter, non ?

26 November

Finally figured out that Psychonauts supports 1080p and gamepad (I’m new to this PC thing, okay?) and it all went from Hate to Glorious.

I’m now feeling guilty that I only payed a couple of bucks for Psychonauts. You quickly realize it’s worth a lot much more.

Paid. I knew that tweet looked weird but I couldn’t figure out why.

27 November

Psychonauts comes from an era of game design in which figuring out puzzles and bosses was supposed to be hard.

I’m not a fan.

Yes, I’m lazy.

Bilan des soldes Steam : Witcher 2, Walking Dead, Just Cause 2, Magicka. J’en ai pour une semaine à tout charger.

Oh, right, that’s why I’d unsubscribed from Polygon — Instapaper always misses half the content… and in my opinion it’s Polygon’s fault (the overly elaborate layouts don’t just mess with Instapaper, they also make my iPad 1 slow to a crawl and/or crash).
