I got stuck early on in The Witness, but The Talos Principle 1 was one of my favorite games that year.

Part of me secretly hopes that Ryan comes back to PC Perspective... but that's obviously a backwards career move that won't happen.

I replayed about 2/3 of Tomb Raider 1 about a month ago.


The controls are *really* rough. Even if they keep the overall grid movement system, it's going to be a hard sell if they don't make it more responsive.

This month includes The Forgotten City.

That was one of my favorite experiences in 2021, and well worth getting this months bundle for if you don't already have it.

I like many of Flying Wild Hog's games, and I didn't even know that existed.

Exclusive to EGS on PC, and a live service game? Yep. Checks out.

That's not enough. We need to get rid of more of them.

Hype level: Moderate

Sigil and his other recent Doom maps have (mostly) redeemed the flub-up that was Daikatana.

As look as he sticks to action and doesn't let ambition get the better of him, this could be really good.

Which ones? I might be able to find them.
I had things like EGA/CGA/Monochrome games from the Public Brand Software catalogue. I don't recall the names of a lot of them, but an archive of PBS would be a good start.

Commercial roms are fairly well served, but that's only a portion of gaming history.

They say that it includes TV content... does anyone know if it includes Pete & Pete season 3?

They've said that DVDs were produced, but never released due to the Paramount merger. I really want to get a hold of the 3rd season in decent quality.

I don't exactly like Meta, but.I hope that they crush Elon to dust. Elon's handling of Twitter has been particularly unhinged. Beyond that, anything that weakens "no compete" clauses is good for workers, but of course, Meta probably doesn't want to weaken them too much, to keep a captive workforce.

It's 4th of July *month* here in Utah, as they have a second fireworks holiday on July 24, so the fireworks start before the month begins and doesn't end until after.

I'm also in a cul-de-sac, which is gound-zero for their launch.

I like Sriracha, and consider it one of the better mass-market hot sauces, but it's not like there aren't alternatives...

"Mostly negative" but the reviews are mostly talking about tech stuff, rather than problems with the gameplay.

May be worth taking a look after a few rounds of patches... Mostly because I'm desparate for Big Robot games.
Mechwarrior-style is preferred, but I'll accept an occasional flashy Gundam.

I remember when Star Citizen was announced and rekindled the interest in single-player space shooter games. I'm definitely excited to play that kind of game.

That Everspace 2 is pretty dang good.


Elite Dangerous somehow managed to get announced *and released* around the time that Star Citizen was announced, and did most of what Star Citizen promised at the time.
