I don’t understand. I have to admit there was just something about New Horizons that didn’t stick the landing. New Leaf had me returning for nearly three years; unfortunately with NH, I lasted about 10 or so months and then lost interest. Obviously for the time I placed and the content I enjoyed, the experience was… Read more
sims and also it’s cottage-core. I guess I should probably say goodbye to my girlfriend before it comes out and she disappears for good.
As a father of an avid Pokemon Go kid who turned 11 yesterday: You did nothing wrong. If you hadn’t see the kid himself and done what you did, there would have been zero guilt. It’s a low-stakes lesson for a kid to get disappointed. It’s happened to my son countless times on our Pokewalks. But rather than get mad, we… Read more
This is inevitably what will happen when games touch close to reality. It’s weird to me that the guy says “No one wants to play as an Iraqi civilian” because I’ve felt for awhile now like a “role reversal” situation could potentially make for a very solid survival game. Like imagine a game set during the Rwanadan… Read more
Don’t beat yourself up over it. You can’t commit every waking hour to the job search. In my experience, there aren’t even enough decent jobs available to fill a whole day of searching. You have to do something fun to offset how soul crushing looking for a job can be. It’s the healthy thing to do.
I absolutely feel this. I stay up and play games late at night even though my wife says I can play during the day because I feel guilty playing in between looking for work. Also, I’m happy I didn’t get the job I applied for at Digital Trends now. Best of luck on your new job! :) The job market is brutal right now.
Absolutely has to be Super Mario Party. It takes too fucking long to complete a game of any substance (10+ turns), so you’re stuck with the other person for at least an hour. If somebody gets completely shut out from winning halfway through the game (which happens all the time), then they either get to king-make or… Read more
I feel so cynical and nihilistic watching the wealthy class clutch their pearls at another class creating market volatility. I graduated in 2011, in the middle of a “once in a lifetime” global recession that caused my industry to shrink by 30-40%, caused by the wealthy class pulling the levers of the world economy… Read more
My partner and I spent $1000 on a game yesterday. We didn’t spend it on Pokémon cards, or Fortnite V-bucks, or…
To be fair, I think it would still be news if a western developer (rather than an investor firm) was doing this much purchasing - if Activision had bought a large stake in Dontnod, for example, I tend to assume Kotaku would still have covered it. But you’re right in that they don’t really seem to be doing anything… Read more
