In the end, there was no way Gribb could have resisted The Callisto Protocol - the cover has a haggard man in a craggy and unforgiving environment. Generally, that would be sufficient. But then, just to set the hook, he has an alien world figuratively - and literally, I guess - resting on his shoulders. He has no natural defense against this. This will pry him apart and devour the most tender part of him, which is frankly on-brand for this kind of Protocol.
He is very much not a horror enthusiast, and I am, so I decided to try it out myself just to see why my 3080 could do with it. A lot, it turns out. This is a really cool piece of technology and it is doing what they hoped it would. As far as the gameplay goes, I'm not in very far but I am far enough in to wonder when the story is going to start. One of the things I liked about Dead Space, which this game is fairly obvious in in its affection for, was that it was essentially about Belief As A Virus and had a Scientology vibe, which situates itself neatly into my fascination with Cults. Pro: I just finished a room that felt like it belonged in Bulletstorm, and that's something I mean as a complement. Con: For some reason, the game won't let me start one of the voice logs you collect and keep playing. You have to sit there and listen to it like a doofus. I'm the one who wants to listen to this type of shit! But I've got the h4x0rz: if you start a log, then go to the menu and exit, it keeps playing and closes the UI. I'm really, really smart.
Early in his Warhammer fandom, quite early on indeed, Gabe started playing a mobile tactics game called Tacticus that was his first real introduction to some of the factions. Somehow, the creator - Snowprint Studios - is going to be hanging out with us this afternoon from 3-5pm on stream to go into some of their thinking and maybe even drop something in the way of a reveal. This is, of course, alongside tons of giveaways and other goodies for Tacticus. I'm gonna head over to Mike's here in a little while to get ready. Stop by!
I'm excited to announce I'll be doing a sponsored stream for the excellent mobile 40K tactics game @tacticusgame this Monday the 9th from 3-5PT! Here's a post with all the details for those interested:https://t.co/EhOgeoGDjQ pic.twitter.com/qJn9pf45tY— Gabe (@cwgabriel) January 6, 2023
