Engagement

People started sharing weird emails they'd received from the villain of Far Cry 6 about what a disappointment the player is, and how they can do better than this, which I think is honestly a lot to ask. I think people are doing what they can on a number of fronts, and if they haven't leisured hard enough, I can think of about a million reasons why that might be the case. Maybe they couldn't get a bed in a hospital because the consolidation in the healthcare industry has hollowed out the supply of acute care beds so they had to die in their garage. I dunno! I'm just working within the available information.

Gabriel barely made it past the intro of Far Cry 6, and I hadn't even bought it yet. I feel like being negged for engagement by marketing emails is probably not going to be effective broadly, but who knows. "Horse Armor" is still used as a shorthand for microtransactional excess, but they made millions off it and in the modern era it constitutes the business model of… well, long story short, such purchases constitute "the business model" almost full stop. Anyway, I don't really know what's going on over there but I used to buy a lot of their stuff and now I buy almost none of it. That's probably a trendline worth investigating.

Mork and I are gonna jump into Enlisted for an hour at 2pm PDT, right after Dabe's Outer Wilds DLC stream - which is currently underway.

(CW)TB out.
