Invoiced a client and immediately bought three new IF games. Oops, I guess I’m never gonna properly finish Elsinore 😔
It’s weird seeing images of Obra Dinn after I’ve watched The Terror. Kinda want to get back to the game but I’m gonna be confusing the two a lot.
I didn’t know cross-save between Steam and Switch could be a thing. That’s such a great feature (assuming it’s reliable), Nintendo should subsidize the development time for any game that’s applicable.
I could deal better with the lack of interactivity in Eliza if I wasn’t so annoyed by the voice work. The dialogue is very nicely written in a naturalistic style, but they ALL overact each WORD like extras TRYING to make SURE their ONE line gets NOTICED.
Petting the bird in Falcon Age VR is really well done but everything else is pretty rough. Teleport orientation is screwed up, my baton keeps holstering in middle of combat, and the universe feels as bare as can be expected of what started as a PSVR game 😕
Meanwhile I’ve played a little of Mutant Year Zero and it’s a good surprise for a game I’d forgotten existed and got for free. I did not expect high production values and well-thought UX from the game with a duck-man and a pig-man on the thumbnail, and a rather generic title.
Apple Arcade is going to have exclusive Rayman, Pac-Man, Shantae, Steven Universe, and Chu Chu Rocket games, plus a new Square Enix RPG. And Apple didn’t even mention any of those when it annoucned the price/date in its biggest PR event of the season…
instead of a Valve Index?
Playing Vampyr in story mode (combat seems okay but the encounters are way too repetitive, so no regrets there) and it was rather enjoyable until I ruined an entire district because a dialogue choice was unclear 😒
Welp, second big moral choice and a second district I’ve accidentally wiped out. I’m such a great savior for London. Kudos to the writers for not making happy endings easy. (I’d be pretty pissed off about the wasted XP if I weren’t playing in story mode.)
It’s a shame that Project Cars 2 is mostly obsessed with track-only racing cars, which I’m not interested in, because I just had the best time driving a Caterham around Nordschleife in VR. Then I changed cars, switched to winter, and died a bunch of times in very realistic ways.
