*Spoilers for Final Fantasy XV and Far Cry 5 ahead, though I’ll try to keep it vague. I’m one of those: I hadn’t played a Final Fantasy game since Final Fantasy VII, a game that came out 21 bloody years ago (good grief, I’m old). I remember being irritated by the sheer number of games … More Final Fantasy XV wrecked me.
Who needs a random Friday when you just had a Thursday like that one? Last night’s episode of Supernatural had some good stuff in it, but it was nothing compared to the mind-blowing last ten seconds.

It’s finally been confirmed for realz: BioWare is officially working on the next Dragon Age game (which probably won’t be called Dragon Age 4, but who cares?)

So… Saints Row IV. The worst spoiler in gaming history wasn’t even perpetrated by gamers, or some reviewer, it was a deliberate, official choice on the part of some assbutt actually involved with the game. I assume said assbutt was in marketing, but hey–I could be wrong. Regardless, the decision to tell us ahead of … More On the worst spoiler in gaming history, part II
Ok, there might be a bit of hyperbole involved in that title–but goshgollydangit, it doesn’t feel like it. New games are a bit of a tightrope walk for me.
