So, hey, CD Projekt Red’s bringing an RPG to E3.

I wonder what it could possibly be?

More evidence has come to light that The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red may be gearing up to make some kind of announcement at E3 2018 next month.

The developer, which has already confirmed it will attend E3, is listed on the event’s website under the “RPG” category. Based on the listing, it appears the studio has an RPG for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC to talk about during the year’s biggest gaming show.

Disney subsidiary compliments other Disney subsidiary over breaking record.

I’m not going to link to that ridiculous piece of marketing agitprop; suffice it to say that LucasFilms* sent a congratulatory note to Marvel Studios over Infinity War beating The Force Awakens for domestic gross.  As both are actually owned by, you, know, Disney and everything this is probably not exactly a spontaneous, gracious gesture. It’s certainly not really evocative of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg giving golf claps to each other. (more…)

The Nintendo Switch is remarkably easy to set up.

It’s not quite plug-and-play, but my wife and I had scheduled about an hour to put together and set up the Nintendo Switch for my eldest, and it took about ten minutes. And half of that was creating profiles for my children. I’m pleasantly surprised.  I didn’t even have to fiddle with the wires; my TV had a spare HDMI port. As soon as everything charges up, they should be good to go.

If I sound bemused, it’s because I am.  I find it disquieting when it’s easy to set up a video game console. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop; or, possibly, the circuit breaker to short out.

Nice, restful day, really.

Today was fairly quiet. God bless Take Your Kid To Work Day. Also, and thank God for this as well: my eldest’s birthday present arrived today. The Nintendo Switch was supposed to show up three days ago. The kid’s been really good about being patient and waiting calmly for it, which is why it being late was so alarming.  It’s not like I could have easily replaced it at the last minute if the item didn’t show, after all.

PS: No, I haven’t gotten Breath of the Wild.  All joking aside, we got the Switch for our kids, not for ourselves. I’m going to let them play on it for a good while before I start using it.
