Maddy's story regarding the fighting game community, and experience in the basement...just ugh. It's toecurlingly embarrassing how maladjusted some people in the gaming community really are. Their social awkwardness borders on stuff from the South Park WoW skit, and that was a fucking parody. So sad.
Miasmata is like a dream come true! First Person survival adventure game on an island and you're a plague-stricken scientist who needs to find a cure. Think if Far Cry wasn't a shooter. Day/night cycle, go find herbs and shit. Has some survival horror elements too with some cat creature that will try to kill you from time to time.
