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

That’s not starting out the way I intended. Let’s say it’s the adrenaline.

I remember reading the best playthrough was low-chaos Emily — but Domino seems much more fun in high-chaos than just saving on sleep darts.

Not to mention that you can’t put to sleep any guard having a drink near a candle or everyone in your chain will explode ಠ_ಠ

WHY DOES DISHONORED 2 NOT LET ME USE THE RIGHT STICK TO CHOOSE FROM THE WEAPON WHEEL.

4 January

I took a job within the UK and my truck’s cabin is all bugged out

I don’t wanna go back! It’s scary in there!

By which I mean I literally can’t wait and will surely buy another headset before that’s properly available.

You can’t play PSVR games online while pretending you don’t have a mic and that’s not a reality I was prepared for 😱

Elite Dangerous alien encounter [youtube.com] [youtube.com] Great design, for both the ship and the encounter.

Today is Saturday and, like just about every week, I can’t imagine how I ever managed to get a 58-day streak in the NYT Crossword.

The Dishonored games still have the best environments

14 January

Damn, this is incredibly beautiful in motion

I don’t understand why my Steam screenshots always come out so dark when all the relevant settings are at their default values.

So, Dishonored 2’s final encounter is… bad, right? Everything before had been pretty much perfect, but argh.

16 January

I finally just played Inside.

Human language does not allow me to express anything more about that experience.

I will say that, of all the things that are fantastic in this game, the animation work in the final act is just incredible.

RT @GeorgeSokol: Been looking at how #Overwatch environments are built, lots of neat trickery here.

For example, these doorways? Floating geo!

I feel like most of the difficulty in She Remembered Caterpillars’ demo just comes from the cognitive overload of a blue bridge meaning the opposite of a blue gate 😕

27 January

Maybe my PSVR wouldn’t have been sitting in a drawer for a month if Thumper didn’t get so damn hard.

Of course there’s Driveclub but that demo on a $300 playseat was so good and I don’t have a $300 playseat, nor enough room for one, so 😕

I wish someone would make an historical MMO recreating everyday life in Ancient Egypt / Greece / Babylon.

Oh wait no I forgot that people are awful.

29 January

Finally starting The Witcher 3. I hate Geralt’s voice and the controls and UI still rub me the wrong way. Powering through, I guess.

Well, I’ve almost finished The Witcher 3’s first area. Writing sure is nice but I hate everything about the way this game is designed.

I guess the idea is “It’s much better than Witcher 2!” which, yeah, I gave up on Witcher 2 after ten minutes instead of an afternoon.
