The Inkulinati video game Kickstarter.

I don’t actually know if I’m going to get Inkulinati – a turn-based strategy with medieval animals. Video game development takes forever and I altready have a Steam library full of games I don’t play. But the conceit is nigh-perfect:

Five days left on this one: I’ve set the timer and when it goes off I’ll ask my wife. Or at least show her the videos. The videos are funny.

The STAR WARS: SQUADRONS reveal trailer.

…Get thee behind me, EA.

I’d need a controller for that for the PC, right? Yeah, I’d need a controller for that. So no can do wait if I had the right controller I could play the old X-WING and TIE FIGHTER games Gog.com has them on its site for cheap NO NO NO MUST RESIST MUST RESIST

…Yeah. October 2nd: time to save vs. shiny.

Oculus Rift / Roblox VR bleg.

I am at my wit’s end on this – and so is my kid, which is a little more important. The short version: since the last update Roblox doesn’t recognize the Oculus headset, even when Steam VR is enabled. We get sound but not video. The Oculus works otherwise. Anybody have any thoughts?

PS: The new version of Roblox has nothing in settings to even refer to VR.

Epic’s got the remastered GHOSTBUSTERS on $5 mega-sale.

Kind of. I think that what happens is, you pick up Grand Theft Auto V for free (for the next couple of days), and that gets you a $10 off ticket for their Mega sale ticket items. Then you go get the remastered Ghostbusters game, which is already on sale for $15, and then you end up paying $5. OK, OK: $4.99. Still, not a bad deal.

PS: I am absolutely NOT playing GTA in front of my kids. Or possibly at all. But they’ll go to college eventually.

Sorry, folks.

Got sucked back into the first Dragon Age. Dunno why. Well, I do know why – my wife is playing it again – but I’m not entirely clear about the causal link there. Maybe because she was having fun? That might be it.

The new “Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2” trailer.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 looks good, although that guy at the start is precisely the sort of person that my Humanity 10 Toreador would stake on sight and then claim she was just cynically enforcing the Masquerade. I’m just a big ol’ softy, me*. Seven months to go before I can play it…

Moe Lane

*Unless you’re Society of Leopold. I was catching myself getting very intense when it came to those SOBs and their crossbows.

Anybody out there using Garry’s Mod?

We switched computers, and now when my kid tries to run it Garry’s Mod keeps trying to re-download all of the add-ons. This takes days, literally. It runs normally when we take the game offline, but then we can’t find any of the add-ons that should be there normally. We’re stumped.

The “Now this is just some BULLSH*T” ASSASSIN’S CREED: VALHALLA video game trailer.

That this is, indeed, some bullsh*t will not stop me from picking up Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, now that they’re back into a time period that’s interesting to me. But this is still some bullsh*t:

Via Coming Soon. Vikings are cool but they were still horrible at visits. I don’t particularly blame the English for deciding to object to that. And if they have Brian Boru saying anything besides póg mo thóin to the protagonist then my eyes are just gonna permanently roll like this.
