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

Video games are becoming too real

@Campster:

There’s no way I think you can look at what happened to, say, Twitter and conclude that “any speech not illegal is welcome here, if you don’t like it just block it!” is a viable or healthy strategy.

@Vahn16:

given that steam has previously been overwhelmed by nazi groups, a gambling epidemic, and tons of scams, it’s kind of amazing to me that they decided on EVEN LESS MODERATION [steamed.kotaku.com]

Can I say that From Software’s art deserves a better-looking engine or will I lose half my followers? The lighting still looks terribly outdated to me.

Hahaha oops I criticized From Software’s lighting just before Todd Howard came to introduce the new Fallout hahaha wait a second what’s happening this looks really pretty.

As much as I loved Forza Horizon 1 and 2, I can’t see the point of releasing a new one every other year. That’s the third of the series to come out on Xbox One; how much better can it be, really?

I for one enjoy The Division’s fake chatter. Megan and her friends make me imagine a multiplayer game I’d actually want to play.

I hope Cyberpunk 2077’s gameplay is more fun than any of the Witchers, because yes I would like to go there thank you.

@Campster:

Anyways Microsoft needed to prove they have exclusives to justify their console and they did so by buying a bunch of devs to force platform constraints so uh

Yay?

@GameDesignDan:

Ahahaha

@leighformayor:

EA spent like 10 minutes talking about a game SET in World War 2 and didn’t even mention the word Nazi once. Thank you, Bethesda. Condemning nazism really isn’t that fucking hard hey.

Elder Scrolls: Blades on an iPhone basically looks better than vanilla Skyrim. Technology has gone crazy. (You better have an extra battery though.)

@transgamerthink:

Might as well mention that The Division plays into a very specific power fantasy of government sanctioned violence and the allure of having a badge in a way that I find really weird.

@BrendanSinclair:

Really, really done with games where society collapses into a might-makes-right hellscape where 1/3rd of the people are hyperviolent psychos, 1/3rd exist to be victims, and 1/3rd are good guy hyperviolent psychos.

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey wouldn’t look like so much of a rehash if Origins had taken place earlier in time and hadn’t included entire Greco-Roman regions to explore. I like Ancient Greece all right (though less than Egypt) but I’ve had my fill already.

@Papapishu:

Hey Video Games, if I wanted to see America driven to the brink of starvation and thirst with neighbor pitted against neighbor in a lawless militia state I’d wait like 4 years.

Interesting official breakdown of the BG&E 2 trailer

I wish I’d played BG&E 1 for more than a couple of hours and the returning characters had an impact on me.

Stormland looks like a pretty cool game that I’ll never be able to play without getting an hours-long migraine.

Sable had me at “no combat, only exploration,” but I hope the final game supports supersampling because the aliasing looks awful on certain shots.

@ajohnagnello:

Everyone: What lovely bluegrass music.

PlayStation: THERE IS NO HAPPINESS DEATH IS THE REWARD

@dhindes:

Let’s not be too quick to celebrate lesbian character representation at E3 until we know for sure they’re not all getting killed off by each game’s end

Finally got into custom Beat Saber tracks — ended up playing for 3 hours 45 minutes. My watch’s workout tracking app crashed and everything hurts, but I love this game more and more every day.

@RtoVR:

The Glitch Mob & ‘TheWaveVR’ to Launch Interactive VR Version of Latest Album [ow.ly] @theglitchmob @TheWaveVR

@haydencd:

There are people who consistently ruin or degrade the lives of developers, journalists, and other community members, and instead of saying “You’re not welcome here” publishers are like “Nah, we’ll undermine the art to cater to those people too. Need the money.”

It’s a choice.

@haydencd:

Super proud of Bethesda for reiterating their “Fuck Nazis” stance even when it’s likely done them financial harm. The bar is literally on the floor and they walked over it, but kudos.

Also proud of DICE for telling Battlefield’s worst factions to get lost.

Keep it coming.

Quarantine Circular is mostly good but I don’t need my cinematic interactive stories to include the kind of alphabet-rotation puzzles I have to input into a Javascript console. I would like a better ending that a short text screen, however.

Ugh, PUBG’s gamepad controls are mapped to the keyboard — only moving in cardinal directions and diagonals. That’s gross.
