Tweet of the Day, Or Else One Guy Doing A 1-3-2-4 Pee Sequence edition.

On a timer, because why not?  But, yeah. This looks conceptually familiar.

Hey, do you want to play some classic Sega Genesis games on your devices?

(Via Fark Geek) I suspect that this might get some people’s attention.

Sega is launching a new mobile gaming initiative called Sega Forever, the long-lived publisher announced today. Under that banner, the company plans to bring loads of games from all eras of its 30-year history to Android and iOS devices as free-to-play apps. While all the games will share some universal trappings, they will be distinct releases rather than multiple parts of a larger Sega Forever app.

I admit, Detroit: Become Human is slightly tempting.

As in, I’m almost tempted to get a PS4 so that I can play it.

I mean, sure, the plot is going to be regurgitated half-ass political jackwagonry, but the visuals look nice and I can groove to having a lot of branch points for a game like this. Alas, Detroit: Become Human is specific to the PS4, which makes it, ah, problematic. It’s not even that I wouldn’t be able to afford to get a PS4: I’m sure that if I could, if I wanted to spend none of my discretionary cash for about half a year. It’s that I have no useful place to put one.

Still. Pretty game.

In the Steam Queue: Wolfenstein: The New Order.

Wolfenstein: The New Order just hit weekend Steam sale for ten bucks (alternatively, if you don’t have Steam Amazon is offering a physical copy for fifteen).  I don’t know if it’s going to go down even further later this summer to seven or so, but honestly fifty percent off is good enough. I probably would have picked it up at twenty except that I was reminded, gently, of the tradition of the Summer Steam Sale. It was worth waiting a week or so, really.

I assume that I should not play this around my children?

The Beyond Good And Evil 2 E3 trailer.

Beyond Good And Evil 2 is gleefully violent and casually profane and absolutely unsuitable for children (or those of infirm moral character) and I am extremely concerned that it will not be available on the PC. Because, yeah, that last bit is the only real deal-breaker for me. I’m just not going to buy a PS4. It’s not in the cards.

The Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus trailer.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus looks like, well, a straight-up shooter.  Fair enough; so was Bioshock Infinite, and I liked that well enough. But is it going to be worth picking up?  And how was the first Wolfenstein, anyway? I have an entire tetrabyte of hard drive space to fill up now, after all.

God, this Bethesda Creation Club thing is gonna be a HUGE PitA.

I mean, OK, as a concept Bethesda’s Creation Club for Fallout 4 and Skyrim is great.

But it’s gonna be a pure headache to everybody who has already modded the game. Because I don’t think that all that vetted content is going to be compatible with all the modded content out there, and I certainly don’t think that all the best modded content is going to end up being vetted.  For a variety of reasons.  On the plus side — and it’s a very big plus side — some modders may end up getting paid for some of their stuff.

So I guess we’ll see.

The ‘Assassin’s Creed: Origins’ gameplay trailer.

There’s a giant snake in Assassin’s Creed: Origins.  Like, Conan-sized.  I am not exactly sure why there is a giant snake. I am not opposed to there being a giant snake, but I would like there to be some sort of explanation as to why. I believe that this reasonable, surely.
