    I think that they really wanted to emphasize the cinematic part and so it charges forward with nary a challenge - action or cerebral - but it's not the best playing Uncharted game.

    That being said, quitting was never on the cards for me.

    I am digging the hell out of Pillars of Eternity. So glad it came to the consoles. I'm surprised by how good it plays with a controller. The port is pretty solid.

    It's been well over ten years since I've played a game like this - since the second Icewind Dale game.

    I'm playing it on the easiest setting, because I don't really care about the strategic combat. But exploring the world, the dialog and story is all great.

    Finally done Uncharted 4. What a plodding experience that was. I have replayed the original 3 several times and surely will several more, but it's going to be a long ass time before I feel like going through that again.

    Completely boring, and the ending really lost any gravitas at all by not having the balls to have SOMEONE die. The whole point of the adventure was that Drake is realizing this stuff is not worth the risk anymore. That's all for nothing when everyone gets out completely unscathed and they CONTINUE DOING IT.

    Sure the epilogue was cute, but man. This missed the mark big time.

    And I am so. Tired. Of. Climbing.

    Rockstar continues to troll us by announcing L.A. Noire on next gen consoles. No Red Dead though.

    Games aren't always fair, the magic lies in making you think they are.

    Crazy cool Polygon article about the tricks game designers use to make us feel a certain way. Contains some light neuroscience, a lot of specific examples from popular games, and this quote from The Prestige:

    "The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled."

    If you want to be fooled, seriously don't read. But if you don't mind then you'll find out stuff like [

    On a whim just now I bought a Switch with the Mario/Rabbids game for $340 on ebay. So excited.

    Currently playing Uncharted 4 (first time). It's good but far from being series best. Currently in the jeep section in Madagascar. Horribly laid out.
    I went back to this earlier post since I'm playing Lost Legacy. It's a hugely playable game and when one thinks of it as an expansion pack, it's possibly one of the best ever, but really, the jeep sections are a chore in this and I'm definitely more receptive to it than during the previous game. As far as I'm concerned, open sections are out for this franchise.

    My favorite part of Uncharted 4 is the clock tower.
