For me, Hardline was higher on my list than Dragon Age, for the fact that Visceral was working on it. There's a trend of FPS games with interesting campaigns at the moment and I'm curious to see what Visceral can do.

As for Dragon Age, I didn't enjoy the previous ones very much and so far it seems like EA has spend more time talking about who you can fuck, rather than the stuff they can do in battle.

For as much as I like video games (and songs) about fuckin', I'd be more interested to see if they are legitimalnly sincere about making a good fantasy RPG, rather than another fundraiser for the next Mass Effect game.

I think it's a waste of money to use visually prolific actors (from, like, movies and such) when there are so many amazing voice actors.

I think my favorite robot companion voice is still the one delivered by Stephen Merchant in Portal 2.

Also, I've been watching a lot of Bob's Burgers and Archer recently and really, really think they should use H Jon Benjamin in there.

If I had to take a wild guess at the plot, I'd figure the guy in the suit to be some kind of triad affiliated psycho who are subjugating and enslaving the mountain natives and you're some plane crash survivor who ends up becoming a hero of the downtrotten, getting visions of Buddha as you descend into madness and then get murdered by the end... But that's just a wild guess.

It doesn't surprise me that the LBGT community isn't considered, as they are minority of video game consumers. The only reason why there's an "issue" with Tomodachi Life is because of a series of bugs that made the game behave in an unintended way by the games designers. Then these bugs got fixed.

So Nintendo fucked up with their press release, stating that they "didn't want to make any social comments" with the game, that's fair and newsworthy, but you all need to realize that Tomodachi Life is a fucking glorified screensaver. You're not getting robbed of the possibility to marry your Mii off to someone of the same gender, because it's not an option... It's a roll of the dice that it will happen. You can't even shake this ant farm to make something happen, you just populate the game and it goes. It doesn't matter if you are gay or straight or a fucking macrophiliac, your Mii behaves on its own.

Everything about this has been blown way out of proportion.

Sing the fuck along with me

So this might be a bit of a shameless plug, but I noticed a disturbing lack of coverage of this game. Not just from Giant Bomb: Homepage of the Internet, but also from sites like Gamespot. So I've taken it on myself to do something about that. First of all I've been doing a bit of livestreaming, but I'm also working on recording some more footage and compose a review of it, once I can manage some time for it.

Anyway, here's a replay of the livestream. A Quicklook, you might call it?

The game is out and I had a go at it on Twitch yesterday.

I'm surprised that it's not actually a vs fighting game, but a singleplayer game where you participate in daily high-school life which consists of fighting and doing manly things.

There's some kind of asynchronous multiplayer where you make your own stages with various Deception-style hazards, upload to a server and then other players will be challenged randomly on it. I haven't quite figured out yet how you do that.

Anyway, here's some highlights from the stream:
