Thanks! Been procrastinating on buying this. Laziness pays off again!

My Pinterest Board of inspirations for a weird fantasy game, ideally sometimes with an impossible interplanar city, strange realms, and surprising anthropology.

Gamewise, I'm mainly thinking about this for Planarch Codex[1], but also these could be inspirations/"eidolons" for Swords Without Master[2].

LOOK AT THIS INDIAN WRESTLER DUDE
WITH A CLASSIC MACE THING
HIS FIRST NAME MEANS VICTORY
HIS LAST NAME IS OF A DUDE WHO WON ALL THE TIME

I was at Gamestop, and an ad for Just Cause 3 was on loop. And I swear: it really sounded, more than anything, like a car commercial, with the way it was touting new features in this exceedingly calm, commercial-y voice. This year's model includes features like:

* a wingsuit
* a parachute thing that's easier to hit things from
* tie all things to things
* much explosion, wow

That said: physics-engine empowered mayhem can be really fun (and my playthoughs of Saints Row often end up in that direction) so I'm sure it'll be fun for folks who play it.

(No new games for me until I finish some that I have so far.)

I played it! To the end, even!

...and yeah like Goat Simulator doing the same thing over and over, even when there's plot happening (the few rare times it happens) gets tiring really quickly.

If I were making big internet proclamations, I'd say that while several games were creating the field for it to happen (Mad Max among others), JC3 feels like the first (of perhaps many) nail in the coffin on Open World Gameplay as the primary selling factor.

If nothing else, playing JC3 within the same year I played Far Cry 4 and Mad Max was basically a vaccination against open world kinds of games for the next 10 years (booster).

Wow! Two of my favorite bluegrass/newgrass musicians (Sara Watkins of Nickel Creek and fiddlepowered solowork, Aoife O'Donovan of Crooked Still) in a supergroup!! +J. Walton and anyone else with a soft spot for newgrass.

Things I love about this video:

1. NSYNC homage/memetic-mutation
1a. of the most earworm-y NSYNC song
2. One of my favorite FOB songs
3. Adding Demi made it even better

This is awesome.

(Combines some electropop sensibilities with a protovaporwave Kenny-G-like backing track. Or just enjoy a Christmas pop song!)
