Posted on 17 Oct 2013 by Andrew I've been thinking this over for the last few weeks, and I've decided now is the best time to suspend all regular updates until I've finished the story, rather than pausing just before I start on the final animation. When I'm done, I'll post it all at once. There are a lot of reasons why I think this is the best strategy.
garfield minus garfield Garfield Minus Garfield is a site dedicated to removing Garfield from the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb. Buy the book!
Cyanide & Happiness
I don’t know what it is that makes me go for This Early Access game over That One. Independent of any philosophical considerations, Early Access as a business and cultural practice means different things, in just that way that a beta from Company X is more like an alpha, and a beta from GmbH ß is a relentless, rigorously polished marketing vehicle. So, I often give Early Access stuff a pass until it is closer to Regular Access just to give it room to breathe. Everybody is telling me Starbound is a thing, if not the thing, but just absorbing the rulebooks from all these skirmishy tabletop feasts rolling in lately has occupied most of my upstairs meat.
Motherfucking Banner Saga, man. I've been anxiously awaiting this game for the better part of a year, and it's finally arrived. I was up until the wee hours of the morning playing, and I can't wait to finish my other stuff today to get back to it. Everything you need to know about the combat and the artwork can be found in my original post about Banner Saga: Factions, the free-to-play multiplayer component, and all of it still rings true. The combat is deep and engaging, and the game's art and animation continue to be stunningly gorgeous.
