I was talking to some friends the other day about the length of certain games and what works and what doesn't, and what was too long and too short, and I cheekily suggested it's not about length, but about width. It was a dumb joke at the time, but as I thought about it, it started to make sense. Maybe it's the thickness of a game, the quality of it, rather than if it is long or short. Some games are long, and feel short, and some games are short and feel long. So I decided we need a new type of gaming website to discuss things like this: GameGirth.com.
Jade Empire is coming to Ios devices, care of Aspyr Media. This follows the release of KOTOR about a year or more ago. Of course, the fuckers forgot to release KOTOR2. I know it just got a bomb-ass re-release on PC and stuff, but being able to play KOTOR2 on a handheld device like an iPad would make me accept Steve Jobs as my personal savior.
Hey guys I haven't plugged my stories and books here lately, cause I just felt tired of it and I'm promoting them a lot of other places now, but you guys are also my friends, so I thought I'd point out what I was up to.
yes, those crazy rumors spitting out of Kim Kardashian's mouth are true: I bought No Man's Sky and started playing it last night. It's actually quite cool, though slow to start, but I'm not quite ready to summarize my thoughts on it yet. I will say though it has a lot more "progression" than I thought, and involves a lot of crafting and exploration, and is very atmospheric and beautiful. I spent about two hours combing over this planet last night, and it really did take me away from the mundane.
I bought Telltale's Batman game. I downloaded it but haven't played it yet. My controller was out of juice at the time. I'm a huge batman fan as you guys know. Superman too. Damn a telltale superman game would be dope.
Took a break from Xcom 2 and working on publishing stuff to play some Twilight Princess. The good thing about this Zelda is Link always looks like he's annoyed. I'm still early in the game, dealing with the forest temple and hanging out with those damn monkeys shaking their butts everywhere. Maybe it's me who's annoyed. :p
I've been spending so much time doing marketing, sending out review requests for Cardboard Spaceship, participating on social media, sending out queries for my other books, and doing this and that, I have barely had time to breathe. It's hard, but this is what I want to do, and I'm not going to stop. Haven't gotten much pure writing done though. I have been playing Xcom2 every once in while to relax, and in fact, I've had moments when I'm napping or sleeping when I'm half-awake and playing the game in my head all imaginary. Fucked up.
