There's a very recent video by Jimquisition about comments comparing The Last Of Us: Part Two to Schindler's List. The short version? Jim Stanton argues that triple AAA games quite simply aren't as well written as the vast majority of big budget movies, they're created to be a product. And comments saying that such-and-such new release is "The Citizen Kane" of video gaming is absolutely incredulous and reading too much into something that's just ... fine.
I've mentioned before that Howlongtobeat has been one of my go-to sources when I start a new game. Some people will be saying it takes the fun out of the game, I know how long it takes. Say if I'm playing a six hour long game, and three hours in it seems like the big climax, then I might know that this isn't it.
Did you know we had almost 200 days of Nightwave Intermission 2?
I'm not mad or anything, it's not like we had a content drought. I'm just saying it was a long time. I got enough Orokin Catalysts to set me up for a good long while!
I play a lot of D&D (arguably too much.)
I also play a lot of Warframe (definitely too much.)
Now Warframe already has some pretty obvious D&D influences (and that's just Chroma!) so I felt that a good way to get back into homebrewing would be to combine two of my favourite things together.
There's two reasons I've not entered the Quarantine Playlist challenge.
One is that I don't have a Vocal Plus account, for reasons that I'm half-tempted to write down just to see if this article would still get published. (That's an experiment for another time).
I have a few friends working in the NHS. And I'm getting scared for them now.
Like actually, properly scared.
I'm not going to pretend I know everything about COVID-19, but I do know that it's thrown everything through a loop, given me an extra week for some of my assignments (the only good thing to come out of it) has forced all my meetings, classes and plans to take place over Zoom (a program I'm almost 100% sure didn't exist until this whole thing started and people realised Skype is a garbage fire).
