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

If you didn’t buy Monument Valley when everyone said you should, you don’t deserve to get it for free today.

Yay! I can buy Rez again and give my 360 away. Also, Rez in VR may or may not be the best thing in the entire world.

Oh, so I guess Sony is tired of me “buying” the free PSN games for PS3 on my PS4, so they now only show the active console’s games?

I suppose the idea behind The Elder Scrolls Online’s free weekend is “it took me all weekend to install the 80GB, might as well buy it now.”

After the pain it was to get Guild Wars to a playable state on my Mac, I’m incredibly impressed by how well The Elder Scrolls Online runs.

TESO feels like it killed Skyrim and wears its skin. Come on, couldn’t you just pretend to give me dialogue choices?

Damn, I can’t believe I didn’t play KOTOR sooner. I was afraid the combat would suck — and with good reason — but the rest is so great.

Somehow I stupidly thought Mass Effect had emerged fully formed out of Bioware, rather than being the refinement of a previous game.

Meanwhile, Dr. Langeskov is eminently forgettable, even though the premise should be solid gold and I like Simon Amstell a lot.

I’ve never replayed an RPG to try different choices, but I would do KOTOR again to check out the Dark Side… if combat was more palatable.

So what I’m saying is, how on Earth didn’t they remake KOTOR with more modern gameplay as a tie-in with the Old Republic MMO?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens est exactement comme Star Wars: Battlefront — superbe, fidèle à l’original, et trop terrifié qu’on s’ennuie pour avoir la moindre substance.

RT @rclarke: If you think The Beginner’s Guide literally contains stolen content, you’re wrong. You don’t have a different but equally valid opinion.

Hooooly shit I’m glad I don’t read Destructoid

It’s time to buy either Divinity: Original Sin or Pillars of Eternity. The latter is cheaper today but I suspect I might enjoy the former more… although everyone seems to agree the story is better in Pillars, so I guess that’s sorted then.

26 December

Today I’ve installed Windows on an external drive, set up Skyrim and a few mods, and… it works perfectly. That is awful news, obviously.

I’m looking all around, admiring the stonework like a tourist.

Good thing I’ve been listening to the Total Party Kill D&D podcast, or I wouldn’t understand half of what’s going on in Pillars of Eternity.

Funny how the undisguised D&D systems annoyed me much more in KOTOR than Pillars. I like my scifi to be immersive; with fantasy I don’t care because I never feel involved anyway. Je ne comprendrai jamais pourquoi tant de de gens rêvent du temps des dragons, des latrines et de la peste.
