After that initial day at the SakuraCon, we tried to imagine an event that could possibly feel more hostile to us. Of course, that con turned out alright, so who knows. We have provided the flyer in the strip in case you want to publicize an event which is not real.
I have a strange gaming condition that I simply must reveal to someone.
If I have a single excellent game - let’s say, Planescape: Torment, which I am quite prepared to call the finest fantasy RPG ever created - if I have a single excellent game, I can reasonably be expected to focus on it until completion. I can even juggle one or two with a good chance of success. But at around three games I truly want to invest myself in - right now, let’s call them Phantasy Star Online, Raven Shield, Planetside, and “I can’t say because of the NDA” - something weird occurs. Instead of opening Excel or something and trying to graph how many hours each game one may consume before a switch is necessitated, I’m seized by the need to save these games for some future point - perhaps to be played amidst the wreckage of civilization after a nuclear holocaust. I mean, shit, I don’t know. I just know, like I know I’m talking to you now, that I need to stow these things away. That doesn’t mean that I don’t play games - far from it. I just have to find new ones, small ones, to take the edge off like methadone. I found a number of great games this weekend through various sources, and should you ever require respite from X where X equals some stupid bullshit, allow me to help.
I also played A Tale In The Desert, but that could be a post all by itself. Every one of these games can be played for free in their demo form, and all are extremely cheap to upgrade for full use.
Alright, this is the last Magnetic Fields quote, I promise. The simple fact is that once you own the album “69 Love Songs,” you just don’t need anything else.
