The Week In Games: Get Your Cringe On

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Get Your Cringe On

It’s the start of July and release schedule has gone on vacation. Unless awkward party games are your thing, in which case That’s You! has things covered.


You might have missed it among all the other news, but at this year’s E3 Sony announced its new PlayLink project, an initiative to release downloadable party games that can be played on the PS4 via your smartphone (and a corresponding downloadable app). In That’s You! for instance, you take surveys and say nasty things about the people around you, like writing in someone’s yearbook for old people.

Not surprisingly, this news didn’t set the gaming community on fire, but anyone who’s played the Jackbox games knows how easily these games can get their hooks in you.

I’m still on the fence for FF XII. I never got into the Gambit system and now, I’m hesitant to give it another try, especially after coming off of Vagrant Story. Anyone know if the controls have been reworked, or is it the faux MMORPG style controls? Because that scheme always rubbed me the wrong way.
