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

@AldisSipolins:

I partly think this shouldn’t exist, but mostly am like #youdoyou (as long as people know what to expect in #VR)

[buff.ly]

I can’t decide if Subsurface Circular is an interesting take on visual novel production or just completely overkill.

Snake Pass was already frustrating enough before I started following a ball python on Instagram — look how agile a real snake is

I should have seen it coming but that’s a cute way to present developer commentary

5 September

In today’s crossword news, I’d never realized that AM/FM and AM/PM only differ by one letter. And I re-read that part of the grid fifty times.

8 September

I’ve had a tab open on Farming Simulator’s Steam page since it went -50% six hours ago and I don’t knowwwwww.

Onward Free Weekend

I’m curious how long I can play this (both in terms of locomotion and shooting realistic humans in VR).

14 September

If I play Death of the Outsider now I will definitely never ever finish Prey. (Instead of the 50/50 chance it currently stands at.)

@eurogamer:

Psychonauts is absolutely free on PC right now, over at the @humble store, get a copy now - [eurogamer.net]

@TristanACooper:

finally figured out what mario odyssey reminds me of

16 September

That upper-left corner was a right pain in the ass

I don’t think I would have liked Scanner Sombre much as a flat game, but it makes for an excellent VR experience.

Look what I’m doing instead of working for real money 😩

@sproutella:

UHH DIVINITY ORIGINAL SIN 2 HAS ONE OF THE COOLEST FEATURES I’VE EVER SEEN IN CHARACTER CREATION

“Women are ruining games” 16th century edition

21 September

Check out Forza going after the Euro Truck Simulator crowd 😁

@stroughtonsmith:

Fascinating to see all this running on iOS

@Pentadact:

HEAT SIGNATURE IS OUT

Break into spaceships!

By the Gunpoint devs!

Buy! [store.steampowered.com]

RT pls?

New trailer! [youtube.com]

I’d still rather finish Prey before I get Death of the Outsider but today’s Crate & Crowbar is weakening my resolve.

My first Heat Signature character was soon “captured” (with a bullet, there was a lot of blood everywhere, but okay sure it’s sci-fi). My second character’s life goal slash loyalty mission is to free the first, who was his life partner, so basically I’ve been guilt-tripped into playing the game forever* now, well done.

* Actually, now that I’m writing this, I’m curious what happens when I “kill” the second character — does the chain end, or were they poly?

@BrendanSinclair:

PUBG-Fortnite thing is sorta like Threes-2048, but if Threes devs already had to give the cloners a cut of their money in the first place

23 September

I’m having issues in Tacoma with sounds & voices going quieter the more directly I look at the source and can’t find any complaints online 😒

I keep forgetting that Titanfall 2 exists and is in my mind’s wishlist because it isn’t on Steam.

24 September

@alexanderperrin:

Hello! My web-based, hand-drawn scenic tram simulator ‘Short Trip’ is now in service. Take a 5 minute ride at [alexanderperrin.com.au]

26 September

Not sure if my connection or the game, but I’m getting terrible performance — rubberbanding, UI lag — with Fortnite Battle Royale on PS4.

27 September

I managed to get my highest score ever on a daily game \o/

29 September

What’s funny is, obviously I’ve seen that concept in fiction before (isn’t there a Futurama episode with a lousy allegory for piracy?) and it never shocked me as a theoretical idea.

30 September

Everyone’s complaining about Cuphead being too hard so I found nothing better to do than buy The End Is Nigh.
