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

2 November 2014

Thanks to Driveclub’s update, I’m only kicked off the lobby after each race. Still spend more time connecting than racing, but — progress!

Driveclub’s online is so annoying, even when it works, that I regret all the time I played Forza without a proper internet connection.

3 November

J’ai à moitié envie d’acheter le nouveau Call of Duty. HALP.

5 November

GTA V in first-person

Fuck, that trailer’s tempting — I had to remind myself I didn’t enjoy the driving model in V.

6 November

In case you missed it: 80 Days is mostly a text adventure for iOS, and you should absolutely try it. Great writing, enticing universe.

Hmf. The Crew’s floaty driving model is making me miss Driveclub. Damnit, I really need to get a Forza Horizon console.

7 November

Doubly surprised by this month’s free PSN games: I’m finding Escape Plan obnoxious, and SteamWorld Dig spectacularly addictive.

Spent the whole night driving from Detroit to Miami to LA and back. I would love The Crew so much if its handling was just a little better.

Modélisme virtuel sur iPad

Gratuit et bien fichu, mais je ne peux pas imaginer que leur freemium fonctionne.

12 November

I’m more than a little disappointed that I won’t get to climb all over Paris in AC:Unity, but democracy is important #votewithyourwallet

Am I the only one who lost interest in the new Monument Valley levels because they take place between two of the game’s existing chapters?

RT @ustwogames: Seems quite a few people have gone back and 1 star reviewed Monument Valley upon update because the expansion was paid. This makes us sad.

13 November

Go to the App Store and give Monument Valley 5 stars again. Let that be your good deed for the day.

“Gaming on Samsung Gear VR? Expect Overheating Problems”

$200 headset + $700 phone and it works for 20 minutes. And a few weeks ago Oculus (Samsung’s partner) was begging its competitors not to poison the VR well by releasing shitty products.

17 November

I’m watching a stream of GTA5 being played first-person and, damn, I wish I hadn’t already bought and finished it on PS3.

RT @michelmcbride: MinigameJam: A game jam to make hacking and lockpicking and all these bullshit AAA minigame tropes actually fun and interesting

18 November

RT @Pentadact: Haha, played Far Cry 4 single player in Offline Mode. Uplay is down when I quit. When I start it again, it’s lost all my progress. Fine work

19 November

RT @michelmcbride: Reminder that in Assassin’s Creed: Unity, this is Prince Louis-Charles (7 years old in 1792) [youtube.com] [en.wikipedia.org]

RT @michelmcbride: That is not a bug. They didn’t have child character models, and thought it was good enough to ship.

20 November

Today is the day the Driveclub disc comes out of my PS4. I doubt it will ever go back in, even for next week’s free DLC.

21 November

Stuck at Far Cry 4’s first moral choice. Play online and risk losing progress to a disconnection, or offline with no possibility of coop?

I can’t remember the last time I played a AAA game and really, unreservedly enjoyed it. Probably the first Forza Horizon — and that’s two years old.

23 November

It’s a pity though that voice chat quality over the controller earbud is rather awful.

24 November

I don’t understand why my Far Cry 4 screenshots always come out so dark when I post them to Twitter.

The end of the first Shangri-La level gave me chills. I can’t bear to return to sad old Kyrat.

RT @Pentadact: MEDIA ALERT for IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

In Far Cry 4 co-op, you can latch your climbing rope onto your buddy’s gyrocopter. [pic.twitter.com]
