It has been years since a game captured me this emotionally and intellectually. Probably not since the legendary (and perfect) Journey has a game so successfully conveyed emotion, story, and character.
Still not convinced you should check it out? How about this? It’s a choose-your-own-adventure story, with gorgeous graphics, music, and fantastically talented voice actors.
It’s been nearly two months, and if you haven’t seen it, I have to assume you don’t want to. Cool, have fun with that. You’ve probably skipped past this post anyway.
But if you’re still here, I have some thoughts about Episode VII that I want to talk about and I figure it's been enough time not to spoil anything... even though there are no spoilers here (I don't think).
Like many of you, I was saddened to hear about humanity’s loss of one of the greats: David Bowie.
What surprised me, though perhaps it shouldn’t have, was how many people I know were upset. What was fascinating was what song or lyric they used to commemorate the man and his music. It says a lot about an artist when it isn’t a single song, album, era, or even genre that is quoted to represent their body of work.
So let’s celebrate the talent and catalog of one of the greatest artists ever.
One of the fun parts of this job is that we get to check out all sorts of weird and wonderful gear. Most of the time, things that seem crazy, are crazy. But every so often, something crazy is actually crazy good. These are the things that fit into that latter category.
