Wallet Threat Level

Note I understood its only releasing today at matrixgames. Steam release will follow (all who buy at matrix will get a key though.) So don’t hit refresh on steam as you’ll be waiting forever :))

Boughton! :)

Did you use discount code ‘Wargamer20’ for a 20% discount?

EDIT: The manual is 349 pages! Take that, Dominions!

I tried to play it without reading it…oh boy was that a mistake. I mean i got a lot of it, but other things had me baffled. Now to read the manual. :) and nope… oops

Dang. I should have posted it earlier when I found it mentioned at the end of this review, which I was alerted to via my Twitter feed:

Yep I pulled the trigger in a hurry and missed the discount as well. If it is as good as I hope it is, I don’t mind ;)

I don’t know how this one slipped past me. Of all the IPs I thought were 40-years dead, Pong would have been at the top of the list. My first ever gaming console was a hand-me-down Pong machine from an uncle or something. It had like 6 or 8 Pong modes to choose from, and that seemed like it was just about they most they could (or would want to) do with the series. But, nope.

Tonight I discovered we now have Pong Quest (and it even has costumes).

Please be our guinea pig, I wouldn’t dare taking the jump (but I grabbed the Atari pack with sweet Major Havoc while I was at Atari’s)

That Pong Quest trailer looks very appealing. Pong was my first game as well. I remember we knew someone who had that machine, but it took over an hour to drive to their house because it was on the other side of the city. So I only got to play it a couple of times.

This week, there are games.

There are strong rumors that June 13 will also include the release of Persona 4 Golden on Steam, just so you know. ;)

Uhh, come again?

I actually own this on PC (GOG). I should… I dunno… actually install and play it some time.

I was tempted to buy this after seeing @Indyls talk about the game.

But then I read up and watched someone play it and two things stood out. #1 The guy had to manually mow the lawn and clean up the house, basically chores. And video games should be an escape from chores, not simulate them! This is the same reason I can’t play The Sims series.

And #2 I saw this screenshot and reflexively punched my monitor until it exploded.

I played through it. Nice little palate cleanser but nothing amazing.

Re: House Flipper, it is true that you have to mow the lawn once per house which is silly time consuming and could be fixed by offering a riding mower. Which would be awesome. But I gotta say cleaning and selling ugly furniture is oddly satisfying.

Oh yeah sometimes there are roaches.

It’s the same chill, zen-like experience one gets from playing something like Euro Truck Simulator, Stardew Valley, or Viscera Cleanup Detail. Sometimes simulated chores are good!

Wait, what? Are we finally getting a PC Persona?

Maaaaaaybe.

It’s pretty much confirmed at this point:

Dual audio, even.

Yeah, I bought it and played a little bit today. And for now it looks and runs great for me.

The Last of Us 2 comes out this week. That is a major wallet threat to me. I just have to remind myself of my PS4 backlog.

Furs of Fury | PC, Mac

I’m crossing my fingers hoping that Burnout Paradise and Railway Empire on Switch are well made. The Switch needs a racing game that’s better than mediocre & builder strategy games are thin too.
