 News Post: Watch The Fuck Out Posted: Mon, 16 Jul 20:52:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: We play Paladins every night.  We were curious about Realm Royale at one point, which we haven’t played since it launched, because we got slurped into the rest of their ecosystem somehow.  Now we’re in its fuckin’ jaws to the extent that Gabriel is watching developer livestreams and shit. I don’t know if Paladins is big or not!  Sometimes you can tell if something is big because news sites talk about it all the time.  It’s not ironclad as a rule; they have their fetishes, like anybody else.  And since their target demographic consists…

 News Post: Denouement Posted: Fri, 13 Jul 19:18:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: And so, after going through all the stages of grief or whatever, young Gabriel emerged stronger and armed with talk show platitudes. He can now play Symmetra without a nagging pain, and with enough success that he’s returned to the fold.  It’ll be interesting to see if the rework is enough to have her find play in the next season.  The stuff I watched from dangerous avian warlord A_Seagull was incredibly communication heavy, but when it worked, the shit she can enable - for example, literally impossible flanks - are scary enough to warrant a look down here in the…

 News Post: Crew 2 4 U Posted: Wed, 11 Jul 22:40:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: Certainly Mork has played it, and now I have as well.  That is to say, The Crew 2.  It’s interesting. I’d love to talk about it. I support what Groblin has said in the main: that these concepts map quite well onto an Action MMO constructs.  He suggested Destiny, which works, but you could just as simply use The Division.  There are games where you earn money and tune cars, Forza Horizon is probably the most compatible with me as a person, but it’s simply a fact that I’m never gonna be somebody who goes way into that kind of stuff.  Let me…

Tycho: There are all these different thresholds you cross in an endeavor like this, and the newest one for Thornwatch is that preorders for Thornwatch: Eyrewood Adventures go up on the store tomorrow, July 10th.  They should ship at the end of the month, after the international games have hit distribution from the Kickstarter. Expressions of unbridled positivity are not generally in his wheelhouse, but as we were putting together the text for the strip those words came out of Gabe’s mouth and I caught them in midair, placing them down in the document gingerly, as you might a soap…

 News Post: The Crew 2 Posted: Mon, 09 Jul 17:45:00 PST (Gabe)
Gabe: I spent a ridiculous amount of time playing the Crew 2 over the last few days. I picked it up last week but didnít end up giving it a try right away. I was working from home last Wednesday when I heard my boys downstairs load it up and I decided to let them have first crack at it. It took me a few hours to draw the comic and the entire time I could hear them downstairs laughing and passing the controller back and forth. By the time I came downstairs they were ready to gush about how rad this game was. I let them teach me the basics and by that evening I had purchased two more copies so the…
