Fallout 76 reviews starting to come in.

This one from Gamespot is interesting.  Short version: Fallout 76 looks a lot like Fallout 4, but with other people.  Entertainingly, it looks a lot like my modded version of Fallout 4, in that there are leaves on the dang trees and everything (I just can’t get into the unmodded Fallout aesthetic*).  A whole lot of the mechanics and the GUI is identical, in fact.  But it’s not quite identical, and I assume that the differences will get me humiliatingly killed a few times.

Well, we’ll see in a month.

*It’s been a long damn time.  The trees and the grass would come back.  Even if radiation is weird and entertaining in this universe.

I am frankly dreading the hardware requirements for Cyberpunk 2077.

Not least because my computer has been having weird crashes and slowdowns lately.  It doesn’t seem to be the hard drive, the video card is the newest piece in there, so it’s probably the motherboard?  That can get expensive fast, and the fact that the tower is far too huge and I probably need a heat sink or something isn’t helping.

But Cyberpunk 2077 supposedly won’t be too much of a hardware hog: (more…)

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!
