THE OUTER WORLDS drops tomorrow.

Giving some thought to checking to see if THE OUTER WORLDS drops at actual midnight; if it does then I can download it overnight and muck about with it at some point in the not too distant future. It is turning into that kind of indeterminate time period.

Is that whining? It kind of sounds a little like whining. The chapter revision of the book is going kind of interesting; I managed two chapters today, but I’m looking ahead and the notes are starting to ask me questions that I hoped that nobody would think to ask. I can answer them, but I’m starting to get why writers hate revising books so much…

Didn’t get far because I have a ton of stuff to do, but got to here:

Trying out CONTROL.

Just finished what I guess was the tutorial. CONTROL looks very spooky, which is excellent, but it has two of the besetting video game flaws of this era: save points, and no easy mode. The first annoys me, because I don’t see the point in not designing a game where you can quicksave anywhere you damned well please; and the second makes me roll my eyes, because I’m mostly playing CONTROL for the story anyway. I’m sure that the combat’s gonna be awesome and everything, especially since you can fling stuff around and everything, but I’m almost fifty and I just don’t have those reflexes.

Still, should be fun.

PS: It runs smoothly on my computer, by the way. This is a general observation that I’m apparently echoing: a lot of people were expecting the need for higher-performance PCs. Then again, this one I’m using IS new.

The Outer Worlds Video Game RPG character generator.

Got this pointed out to me on Twitter: it purports to be a way to generate a character for Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds ahead of time. I’ve fiddled with a bit, and if it’s accurate then it’s telling us some very interesting things about the game. In more or less order:

So, yeah, Samhain started today on Secret World Legends.

In case you haven’t figured that out, posting was out the window today. Samhain is THE holiday for Secret World Legends, so… well. Things will get back to normal soon.

This @SecretWorldLgds contest looks like fun.

I did the Agent one, not the Screenshot one. The Agent is more in my wheelhouse; and, frankly, if Secret World Legends doesn’t want him I’m doing a full write-up of the dude because I think that he’s hysterical. And inevitable, in a Laurence of Arabia way.

In the Mail: Dualshock PS4 Wired Controller.

And if I have any free time in the next couple of days — SCA event and regular husband/dad stuff — I will even see if this Dualshock PS4 Wired Controller will actually let me play Playstation Now games on my PC. Not gonna lie; I am perhaps a bit more impressed about this development than I possibly should be. But it’s kind of neat to be able to integrate all of this stuff. Heck, when they eventually bring out the PS5 I may just wait until all the PS4 games are on PS Now.
