Tweet of the Day, This May Or May Not Be A Torment Nexus Scenario edition.

I get the general impression that READY PLAYER ONE is kind of a crapsack world, so that much tracks. On the other hand; if online existence is so burdensome, maybe log off every so often. And on the gripping hand: the world of READY PLAYER ONE isn’t actually going to happen anyway*. So maybe it’s not a Torment Nexus thing, as much as it is an attempted cash grab. Those at least are tolerable.

Video of the Day, I Feel Not-Seen edition.

…and all we have to worry about is the minor detail that games that go through this kind of development hell don’t so much have two strikes against them as they’ve been hit twice with a baseball bat. I’m not saying that VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE: BLOODLINES 2 is fated to suck, only that it’s a pretty good bet that it will. It’s also already annoyed me, because apparently there will not be a Toreador option. How am I to do my Humanity 10, Perky Goth Queen of the Repentant Damned playthrough if I can’t play a Toreador?

…Look, for the amount of money I spent on preordering, if I want to play this game like I was Twilight Freaking Sparkle then that’s what I’m gonna do.
