Now that we’ve reached the end of one godawful administration, I’m looking at my role as a game reviewer. More importantly, I’m trying to see things as a minority with a platform.
Where Were You That Night?
HIGH The culmination of Rocksteady’s storytelling and gameplay.
LOW I have a long way to go before 100% clearing this game.
WTF The Arkham Knight seems familiar, doesn’t he?
A VR Swingers Party
HIGH Crossing a room in seconds with a few perfect swings.
LOW The underwater bits.
WTF Why is this not attempted more often?
Over the last week or two (or three?) I’ve had a dozen unfinished conversations on Twitter and just as many ideas for articles and blog posts stemming from them, but it’s hard to find the time and energy to do justice to it all. Given the circumstances, I thought collecting all my half-written notes and reminders to get back to so-and-so in one place would kill all my various birds with one rock.
So, In no particular order, let’s finish these chats…
Life is busy, free time is short, and there are a hell of a lot of games coming out… More than any person could ever play, let alone finish. I do my best to keep up with the neverending flood, but there’s only so much one man can do. In an effort to be more nimble with my coverage, I’ve decided to roll out This Is Not A Review.
Amazing? No, pretty much as expected.
HIGH Swinging smoothly in a maze of skyscrapers.
LOW Repeated failures when rescuing people from burning buildings.
WTF Do we really need to cover Uncle Ben's death again?!?
