It’s a similar story for Rosa and Joey, but especially Joey. Four games in, it’s notable that everyone who’s played a Blackwell game has an image in their head of who he ‘obviously’ is, whether it’s a gangster, a jazz singer, or whatever, despite the fact that we know basically nothing about him before his spirit days. Deception finally starts prying into his past a little, and not because he wants to open up. Many of the series’ best moments have been when his normally amiable mask slips and we see flashes of what lies underneath, and Deception is no different. Both he and Rosa are increasingly being pressed in ways that most adventures spare their characters from, and the slowly developing dramatic story arc is all the better for it. I’m really looking forward to seeing where they go after the end of this episode. … [Read more...] about Medium Well Done: The Blackwell Deception

If you wanted to play on (ranked) stats saving servers, you have to use our external GameLobby app seen here. Doing so requires you to create a unique UserID (aka GamerTag) which is then stored on our servers. For your stats to be updated and tracked on the server, you have to always join a server this way. You can then look at your real-time stats and compare against others on our leaderboards over here. During multiplayer (there is no stats saving/tracking in single player), your kills, rank, Experience Points etc are tracked and updated in real-time, all the time. Since XP is tied directly into the game (e.g. you need a certain amount of XP in single and multiplayer to use certain vehicles, do certain things etc), the higher your XP, the more things you can do in the game. So there will be this on-going quest to get your XP very high. … [Read more...] about All Aspects: The Derek Smart AAW Interview
Invisible Kingdom #8 finds Grix stuck between two philosophical extremes. She and her crew are the captives of space scavengers intent on hurting Lux regardless of what it costs the company's workers. At the same time, she’s trying to help some Lux employees who find themselves in a similar situation. Those workers make it clear that they no problem turning Grix and crew to make good with the company. Whether trying to help or hurt the company, both factions seem to care little about the people caught in the middle. This is where Grix plants her flag at the issue’s end, be telling her crew “You idiots are my whole life.” Its the strongest statement of intent that G. Willow Wilson has written into Invisible Kingdom yet. Christian Ward’s art is still beautiful, but looking rushed in place in this issue. There’s a whole conversation where one character’s face is a featureless, yellow slate. But with a statement of intent made, it’ll be … [Read more...] about Comic Book Reviews for This Week: 12/18/2019
Miller: We’ve gotten the question a lot, “Why aren’t there aliens? Why can’t you play as aliens in this game?” That was a question that was very easy for us to answer early in developing this. We wanted this game to be about people, about us, and how we go to a new world and thrive there. It’s a human story. It’s not an alien story. There are aliens in it, but it’s a story about us. So that’s why the AI leaders are human leaders, and you make contact with sentient alien beings, but it’s sort of mysterious who they are and all of that. We kind of leave it up to the imagination. … [Read more...] about Firaxis On How Civ: Beyond Earth Really
That’s assuming you even know who these people, monsters, and machines even are. Witcher 3 players should recognise a good number of the humans, elves, and dwarves that make up the cast of silver and gold cards, but you’ll need to have paid special attention to know your Vrans from your Chorts, and your Northern Realms soldiers from your Nilgaard men. It only took me a few games to get used to each faction’s starter decks, but without Hearthstone’s cheery colourfulness, and with an army of army men to wade through in a number of the decks on offer, it’s not immediately obvious what cards can actually do. … [Read more...] about Has Gwent been improved by its updates?
