The “Oh, No, this looks PERFECT” Spider-Man PS4 Honest Trailer.

Their honest opinion?  ZOMG.

This is apparently the best Spider-Man game EVAR, and naturally it’s exclusive to the PS4.  Starting to think that maybe I picked the wrong system in the Console Wars*.  Not that the Xbox 360 isn’t obsolete anyway…

*Of course, I’m a PC gamer anyway.  But it must be admitted that the PS4 has some fine titles associated with it.

Sweet merciful Lord, they’re making a Starflight 3.

I played the first Starflight back in college, and the hype here is real: it’s one of the seminal science fiction exploration games. It had space exploration, diplomacy, combat, planetary resource management, an elaborate backstory, a difficult moral quandary at the crux of the game, and an absolutely merciless save system if you didn’t have a hard drive on your computer.  Yes, it was that long ago.  This is a pure nostalgia hit, folks: true-quill and injected right into the vein.  Forget buying it: I’m trying to keep myself from investing in the game.

That’s apparently Fig’s shtick: you can back projects, or invest in them.  $250 gets you a share in whatever profits accrue.  What’s stopping me?  Well, aside from the obvious: I don’t know anything about video game investing, which means that I’m a prime candidate for losing my shirt over doing so.

Still.  Starflight 3.  Woo-hoo!

Oh, right, that’s why I don’t play Civ-type games.

Because it’s 5 AM and I have made a very bad mistake by still being up this late.  Good night/morning.

Got sucked in by Stellaris.

Got sent a Steam code.  Stellaris is a galactic resource strategy game.  It’s very easy to lose yourself in it.  As you can see.

So, hey, the trick with EA is to actually CALL them.

EA’s online emergency support — as in, Russians have hacked my damn account — is worse than useless.  But call them, and you get a call back in less than a minute with a human being who knew what the hell she was doing and actually, you know, helped and everything.  I don’t know whether to be more charitable to EA in the future, or to call her back and warn her to flee that place before they come to feast upon her soul.

PS: They’re gonna be passing THAT customer evaluation around the cubicles, let me tell you.
