You think your life's more than a game of suits and ladders When nothing really matters You're not just fluous, you're superfluous You don't actually do anything, a human redundancy
I've been playing a lot of RPGs this summer. Back in May, I built myself a new PC for gaming. I installed all of the fun stuff, tested it to see just what it could run, but it wasn't long before I was diving into a familiar RPG that could run easily on my tiny laptop, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 - The Sith Lords. Something about a game where I choose what the character does every step of the way is intriguing to me.
Again & again & again & again Do it again, do it again Again & again & again & again Do it again, do it again, again & again
People love to complain about zombie games. After all, they do seem to be all the rage these days. There's kind of a hipster pleasure to dismissing zombies. Why do people love those moaning, shambling masses, anyway? Is it the ability to kill people without guilt, or perhaps it is sheer hopelessness of it all? Is it the idea that one intelligent person can outsmart an entire army of mindless drones?
I dunno. I'm not talking about that today though. I'm talking about something way more overused than zombies, bald space marines, regenerating health, and maybe even jumping. I'm talking about something many may consider too broad a trope to compare to these things. I'm talking about medieval fantasy.
I had to fall To lose it all But in the end It doesn't even matter
It's no secret to anybody who uses the internet that the Summer Steam Sale has come and gone. While I had a list of modern, graphics-intensive games to test my new gaming PC and time-consuming RPGs planned out to buy during the sale, there were also one or two indie games that caught my eye. Among these was Long Live the Queen, a visual novel by Hanako Games, a relatively unheard group of game designers bent on creating 2D games; "Girl games," to be specific. This does not refer to games for girls, but more for games about and including girls.
I don't know why, But I had to start it somewhere, So it started there.
Hello, and welcome to my new blog, where I write about video games for some reason, and you read what I wrote for some other reason.
The Steam Summer Sale, AKA the wallet holocaust, just ended, and I found myself with 12 new games. I played a few of them right after I got them, and others I haven't even installed yet. Most recently I have been engrossing myself in Bioshock Infinite.
