I like the aesthetic for HELLBOY WEB OF WYRD. It’s really close to the original comics, which are of course wonderful. I’m interested in what the actual gameplay will look like…

Tweet of the Day, …Why ISN’T There A Category Like This? edition.
It seems like a solidly useful category that wouldn’t need much coding, and would encourage purchases. I myself want to know it when games I actually play get updates…
I’m in that dangerous stage of video game boredom.
You know: the one where I don’t care about any of the one billion games I’ve already got on Steam, Epic, Orgin, GOG, Bethesda, and Uplay and start wondering about new time-sinks. In related news: how’s Tropico 6? GOG’s having a sale on the previdammit I just bought Sid Meier’s Pirates.
People fulminating about violent video games again. Yay.
Look, I feel that there is an Understanding, or there should be. I am now in this lane. A certain segment of the population is now in that lane. I am retired, so I stay out of their lane; and they should stay out of mine. Particularly when it comes to things like video games, which are frankly a convenient whipping boy for whatever general damfool feels like being a damfool in public this week. If you don’t like ’em, don’t play ’em; and if you don’t want your kids exposed to ’em, don’t let them play ’em. Aside from that, mind your own damned business.
I have spoken.
How do I feel about this Paranoia video game?
Please do not use cars as video game platforms.
This is a very, very, very, very, very dumb idea.
If you’re into video game development, consider applying to Tesla. We want to make super fun games that integrate the center touch screen, phone & car irl.

So, Neverwinter Nights Diamond edition is temporarily available for free…
…on GOG.com. I take it that this is, like, a big deal or something? I vaguely remember that people were talking about Neverwinter Nights, back in the day – so I grabbed it. That was the right call, yes?
My PJ Lifestyle post on Hillary Clinton coming for your video games is up.
Annnnnd link here. The short version: she totally is. I’m not joking. The woman sponsored blatantly unconstitutional legislation along those lines when she was a Senator.
Q. How do you turn junk into treasure?
A cache of Atari game cartridges, including copies of one of the worst video games ever made, have sold for more then $100,000 after being discovered in a landfill site in the desert.
The ‘one of the worst video games ever made’ thing, of course, refers to E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. A landfill copy sold for $1,535 – which is weird, because if you click on that lin you’ll see that you can get in on Amazon for around eighty bucks. Not that you should spend eighty bucks on that game either, by all accounts…
My PJLifestyle post on Lovecraft in video game RPGs is up.
Found here. Short version: Lovecraftian icons and themes can be useful for video game RPGs. Also: I finally got around to putting my Patreon link in my profile over there. Seriously, why I didn’t do that from the start…
