Another week done, still not even close to getting any of the videos from Gamescom out. Screw you CyberLink and your broken software.
Anyway, the season of games is now starting: Metal Gear Solid V, Until Dawn, Madden, Mad Max, and Gears of War are all getting released in the next 14 days. Even some indies throw their weight into the ring.
I still need to finish The Witcher 3…
But what is everyone playing this weekend?
Gamescom is over. I’m personally still catching up on everything that happened while I was in Cologne, but looks like I didn’t miss that much. We’ll also have some of our own Gamescom content coming, some video, some written previews, but no direct ETA yet. One of the first things will be a Mount & Blade 2 special, including a quick overview of its history.
But what’s everybody playing in the meantime?
Did you catch all that news about the new World of Warcraft expansion? Did it feel to you like twelve year old Metzen was running rings around forty+ year old Metzen saying “YOUR GAME NEEDS MORE COOL THINGS?!” No? That was just me? Oh well. Maybe you’re going to play World of Warcraft this weekend, who knows? But this is what Twinstiq is up to: Read more
Another Friday, another WRUP, but there have been some exciting changes for Twinstiq, as I'm sure you can guess just from visiting the site to read this. Dr. S did a fantastic job with the new site, and he continues to work on it to improve and update. Bear with us as we make Twinstiq the site we know it can be, the site it will be. In the meantime, check past the break to see what we're doing this weekend, and make sure to tell us what your plans are in the comments below.
You might wonder why there is so little news. Well, I (Dr. S) need a little break (E3 reminded me that the best part about gaming is …playing games yourself!) and everyone else on the team is either busy, sick, or too cynical for E3.
This E3 was great on paper, but if you look a bit deeper, it really wasn’t worth the hassle. I could report on all the little news-bits and get crazy in the process, but that would be just doing free PR for the industry. Remember all those previous E3 promises that never really materialized in the way they were presented? Yeah, it will be the same this year.
I will probably be back on Monday, and then we’ll try to uncover some of this year’s E3 lies, give spotlight to some under-promoted news and have a jolly good time overall. In the meantime, I’m sure those of you who are interested in promotional material have some other news sources. (If not, you can visit our friends over at GamesRadar), but I would personally urge you to just relax and play some games. Life is too short for listening to PR speeches ;)
George Weidman from Super Bunnyhop actually released a pretty good video on this topic:
With that out of the way and since it is Friday: What’s everyone playing?
