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

Ah, the 9/11 VR experience is a school project — that makes more sense [share.oculus.com] [youtube.com]

I knew the PS4 was outselling the XBONE but I didn’t think it was this far ahead: [arstechnica.com]

@Sharoogala:

Activision buys Candy Crush maker for 5.9bn

For scale:

Disney & Star Wars: 4bn

FB & Instagram: 1bn

Oculus: 2bn

Minecraft: 2.5bn

Marvel: 4bn

Crossy Road hard mode: play Apple TV multiplayer with yourself. (UI is so obtuse I actually needed an article to explain how to enable it.)

Une semaine après Agent A, sortie de The Room Three : [itunes.apple.com]

5 November

Agent A for iPad substitutes constant backtracking (and nice production values) for interesting puzzles. Well, escape room design is hard.

Fallout 4 gameplay trailer

Looks cool, but… why do you all want to spend 50+ hours in a post-apocalyptic wasteland?

It’s funny how jarring I find Horizon Chase’s graphics in Retina definition. They looked so cute in videos, but this style needs pixels.

You could send your pet home to clear your inventory in Torchlight 6 years ago. It’s a crime to implement encumbrance today without a similar system.

This is very cool: “Tomb Raider allows [Twitch] viewers to vote on conditions that will change the streamer’s game” [eurogamer.net]

Else Heart.Break() is lovely and I really want to like it, but it’s such a pain to play I’m not sure I can ever launch it again.

And the worst part is not trusting the event scripting anymore after I had to restore an old save because I got fired before being hired. (Among a bunch of much more minor hiccups.)

It’s odd how few iOS games there seem to be with proper daily challenges. I love having a reason to do a Card Crawl run each day.

23 November

The NYT crossword app’s custom keyboard is a huge pain in the ass and, like, totally the reason I’m failing.

25 November

Giving Guild Wars another go, and the Mac client works much better now, but the game seems to assume I’ve played an MMO before; I haven’t.

I don’t suppose they snuck an arachnophobia mode into the Lara Croft Go update without telling anyone, did they?
