“Creating the myth of wealth creation” is accidentally an accurate assessment of crypto as a whole.

I know the mods will delete this post (and justifiably so), but it’s the hardest I’ve laughed all week. Maybe we can mark the post as parody?

@voidburger: You were the best thing to happen to this site in a long time. Still can’t believe that’s over.

PS your Twitch streams with Josh are awesome. The Final Fantasy character guessing game one was legendary.

This news is gutting. Jason was always the site’s secret weapon, and Jess was their best hire in eons. They deserved better than this.

As for the site: not only are they down 2 editors, but one of the 3 consistent content producers is down now too. Bad news all around.

1. The voting for Undertale will continue until morale improves (or it’s selected).

2. Return to Monkey Island

I think I’ve made peace with the fact that I haven’t enjoyed what I’ve played of Somerville and probably won’t ever return to it.

@rorie: Based on the additional Yves quotes in this article, I assume that anything outside the tentpole franchises is getting little to no love anytime soon:

On the one hand, this is kind of what you want to see from any company. This lets the former execs who left pursue new ideas, while giving the Playground employees previously at the ceiling of their advancement a chance to move up. I think people would be pretty disappointed if Forza Horizon 6 was another iteration of FH4/FH5, and new leadership means new ideas (usually).

On the other hand, Playground is in the middle of working on Fable. It’s easy to wonder if that development is officially troubled now with the sheer number of high-profile departures.

Since I’ve spoken glowingly of this game basically nonstop (and have it at #4 in my GOTY list), I’ll drop my one nitpick I have with the game: the flashlight should not take up an inventory slot. No other secondary item is mandatory for progression, and more than that it’s just super annoying to switch it in and out of the 6 item slots.

I got to around the point of the Quick Look and uninstalled the game. The guns (at least Kenny and Gus) feel really not good at all to shoot; poor feedback on kills is a particularly sore spot with me. Traversal is less bad but the grappling hook activated at strange distances / aim, which was especially annoying during that 9-Torg fight. Also, I experienced maybe the longest loading screens I’ve seen on a Series X, which is an accomplishment.

I already knew I would dislike the humor going in, so that wasn’t disappointing at least. I feel like Jess hyped up those bounty forums a lot more than they deserved though (no knock on her, she was the target audience for those jokes). I would kick in as much as $5 to send Justin Roiland to the Comedy School to learn a second joke.

I’m paying attention to a number of early access games that are scheduled to release their 1.0 versions in 2023, at least according to Gamespot’s website. I don’t think any of them have a firm date yet but I could be wrong.

(Apologies for the lack of formatting, I’m on mobile.)

Baldur’s Gate 3 - announced as August during the Game Awards, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

Dune: Spice Wars - I keep meaning to check this out on PC Game Pass to see if I like it in its current state.

Everspace 2 - I played an hour or two of this last year, and it was a lot of fun but very obviously feature incomplete. I think Rorie played more and recommended it.

Songs of Conquest - the campaign is currently limited to two factions at 4 missions apiece; 1.0 should at least complete the story with the other two. Ideally it’ll include another faction or two, but the devs have made it known how difficult it is to maintain balance with new factions. This is already on my 2022 top ten though.

Terra Nil - played the demo in 2020, loved it.

Valheim - I think? Gamespot sure thinks so, but the version listed is 0.212 right now.

WarTales - I’ve been playing this in the extremely limited gaming windows that a colicky newborn allows. I’m having a great time with it so far.

World of Horror - it already seemed fairly complete, at least after they added the midgame save feature. I’m just happy this is getting a full release after the developer had a really rough go of things in 2020-2021.

I’ve been withholding my GOTY list for 2022 for this exact reason. What’s the point in typing up 10 paragraphs that will immediately become obsolete once games like Dolphin Quest hit the market?

If anything happens I’m blaming the woke Gaming Racists.
