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

Démo d’Audiosurf 2. Il faut avoir pris des trucs pour y trouver un intérêt, non ?

3 June

WTF, il y a un simulateur de corrida sur PS4.

Did the player’s bodily functions need to be so loud in Ark: Survival Evolved? Was it integral to the Dinosaur Island concept? #misophonia

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s an ugly low-poly spaceship!

RT @cocoalabs: When the HELL did they remake Battle chess? OMG:

RT @danthat: “Real GTA” is astonishing work, but he doesn’t run into walls enough [youtu.be]

From the photos, the Oculus Rift’s included headphones look like cheap crap. You can remove them, but for the price you shouldn’t have to.

Just remembered some people prefer in-ear torturephones. In that case I’d rather the headset came with no sound at all. Clearer message.

There’s a purity lost to Geometry Wars 3 but it’s still damn exciting. And I sure am glad I didn’t buy it on iOS with touch controls.

It’s like Little Inferno was designed just for me. And it’s the perfect game to play while listening to podcasts.

The Fallout 4 demo is making me want to play it, which is a first for this franchise.

Fallout Shelter scrolls faster than my finger and that goes against every iOS convention.

With backwards compatibility I don’t have a reason anymore to resist the Xbox One and Forza Horizon 2 — except I’m saving for a PC and VR.

Eve Online looks gorgeous, and runs perfectly on my Mac, but oh my god it’s even less of a spaceship ‘simulator’ than I ever imagined.

I think dystopian future works better when the corporate powers are faceless, but Mirror’s Edge certainly looks fine.

RT @agentbizzle: This EA press conference is what happens when a nerd and a jock have to work on a science project together for a whole semester.

RT @patrickklepek: Seems impossible to watch this Star Wars footage without a giant smile on your damn face.

RT @Cafeine: 1. love the game. 2. Aisha Tyler when not selling ubi stuff :P [youtube.com] (thx Fask :p)

If Elite: Dangerous is a mile wide and an inch deep, I’m afraid No Man’s Sky may be much wider yet even shallower — but, hey, so fucking pretty.

RT @haydencd: Fuck. Sony is BRINGING the games. And I feel like last year, they did the same. But then I look at the PS4’s library and…nothing.

Even Sony’s Assassin’s Creed trailer is cool. Clearly it isn’t games they have mastered, but the powers of deception.

I’ll believe in Sony’s Morpheus when they announce that it includes its own GPU.

The way Nintendo integrates Amiibo into everything they make is pretty nice. If you’re gonna sell silly NFC figurines, give your players something in return.

Maybe it’s time someone explained to Japanese game developers that they can’t just use Times New Roman and call it done.

Little Inferno is little more than a cookie clicker with pun-based riddles and nice visual effects. But what’s interesting is, that formula totally works.

No Man’s Sky was the main reason I was glad to have a PS4 and now I want a gaming PC more than ever before.

18 June

Made an effort and tried Torchlight 2; the pets are adorable but I just cannot deal with attacking enemies by clicking on them like I’m hunting for desktop icons.

(Damnit, why can’t everyone learn English already?)

20 June

TerraTech was the first build-your-own-vehicle game I found well made and enjoyable… until it launched over-powered enemies at me then respawned me without a radar so I couldn’t make my way back to the base I had built.

RT @robotdeathbear: Apple pulls all Civil War-themed games from the app store because they contain the confederate flag. [toucharcade.com]

It doesn’t seem like Apple to inspect its own catalog for Confederate flags. Wonder if an internet brigade has been mass-reporting them.

RT @Campster: Censorship or not, the move by Apple is a regressive, overly broad response that reflects their disdain for games as a medium.

RT @Campster: And given that the App Store is a serious platform moving millions of dollars that contempt from on high should absolutely be worrisome.
