Rundown (6/10) E3 2018: Consumption Makes the Heart Grow Fuller

As is customary with celebrating an event such as this, it is important to acknowledge the futility of this event.  E3 is effectively one big commercial designed to hype up consumers in order to spur discussion and news about games, in order to help maximize potential revenue, in order to allow major AAA studios to continue existing.  It is very easy to view this whole affair cynically, pointing out the downsides of high expectations and how gaming is arguably most enjoyable when ignoring industry nonsense. But I cannot help but love the act of fervorous consumption all the same, as it is a very filling and pleasing experience that still serves as a good excuse to become excited in a world that… I’d rather not talk about right now.  Time for video games!

Rundown (6/16) E3 2015: It’s Over and I’m Not Particularly Happy…

And E3 is done… Kinda.  Yes, I know the first proper day just happened, but after the press events, my work is mostly done, and 90% of the announcements are out of the way.  It’s just impressions from here on out, which is just dandy in my book.  However, Nintendo, Square Enix, and AMD all had press conferences, so I’ll just get to explaining what the blazes they were about, and what my Autistic mind thought about them.

Rundown (11/09-11/15) Don’t Go Outside or the War Will Get You!

1 GUP War It is Hell And No People Are AliveSo, Dragon Age Inquisition comes out on my Birthday, but a combination of the price, bugs, and how I am saving for a GTX 970 ontop of the inevitable Steam sales puts it on the back burner.  Oh, and Origin, never forget about that yucky Origin!  I really do want to dive in though, but I have visual novels and some PS+ games to keep me preoccupied.  Also out of the streets, where there is always a war on.  A nice chilly one at the moment, filled with mutants.

Rundown (11/02-11/08) No Despair Is Allowed in the Butthole!

Despair

So, I’ve got some news to share about my upcoming Novella, as opposed to a novel that is three novellas sticked together.  It is a little story of mine I dub The Vile Doohickey, which involves a group of teenage friends who find a body swapping remote.  The story will come out this year, as I almost done with the final chapter, but need to edit afterwards.  I am also looking into making a visual novel, but don’t plan to get started until Winter Break… where I am still working, and am going to need to type up a handbook so Santa can bring me an Nvidia GTX 970.  Regardless, I have at least one more Novella I plan on doing after that, in the form of a tribute very obscure to a Z-tier Manhwa mixed with my favorite character of 2014… Yeah!

Rundown (4/20-4/26) An Uncreative Title for an Uneventful Week

SF Super sadness and upset why you leave me bro I wanna have butt sechsLet’s see here… Bandai Namco’s going some indie stuff?  Nah.  Zynga has lost a lot of market share, but I don’t even care about them as a thing.  Gamestop is closing many stores and shifting more to mobile, but I am going digital from now on, so I don’t really care a hair.  Battlefield 4 is still busted, even after it came out six months ago.  Just Cause 3 may be a thing, yet I found 2 to be super dull.  A lot of people have played Watch Dogs and its story sounds loathsomely mundane for a game with giant robot spiders.  Oh, and a bunch of people dug up some old ET cartridges…  Yeah, it’s been a very slow news week.
