Father’s Day is tomorrow. It’s ok, I almost forgot, too; these calendar things and I don’t really get along. I wish the world would behave like Persona 3 and flash the date and the current phase of the moon before my eyes as I wake up every morning. Until then, I’ll just have to mark the passage of time with issues of D Bags Weekly.
Elder Scrolls Online: To Oblivion With You! – The biggest Elder Scrolls mark on staff waxes philosophical about the series’s upcoming foray into the world of MMORPG’s.
Skyrim: RPG Streamlining Done Right – The only thing that makes me cringe more that the sound of Bobcat Goldthwait’s voice is the term “streamlined RPG mechanics,” but Bethesda managed to prove that a little bit less really can be a lot more.
Memos from 38 Studios: The Humble Corporate Bundle – Rhode Island’s finest are at it again! Schilling really needs to invest in some improved network security measures.
Ten Years from Now… – A photo journal inspired by the man who played the same game of Civilization 2 for ten years examining the effects ten years of playtime would have on a few modern favorites.
Tweets of the Week: Lollipop Chainsaw – The Twittersphere’s take on your creepy uncle’s new favorite game. I’ve been on the fence about this one; pouring through days of tweets that either loved the game like a new child or hated it more than a kick in the balls did nothing to help that. To the Gamefly Q with you, Juliet Starling!
Happy birthday to the Ultimate Warrior, Tupac Shakur, and Wally Joyner!
