September 9 – September 15
It's been a few weeks of pretty solid releases. This week feels more like the kind of fare of late summer I might traditionally expect, which is to say there's a smattering of niche kind of games but no real solid anchor games. Arma 3 is a little bit of a big deal, but it's been out there in beta so long, it's a little hard to get worked up.
So, I'm giving game of the week to Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, which I am happy to tell you is a game I will never, ever play. I know about Amnesia, because I once watched several significant parts of the game online. From what I can tell about the game, it is a story where you wander around in the dark until something scary maybe happens and I shut the laptop down immediately.
Because the thing might get out or something.
I can tell that Amnesia was a solid game, because it's supposed to be scary and weird, and those are the immediate adjectives that leap to mind when I think about it. I don't know what the sequel is about, but I have to tell you that A Machine for Pigs is a name that immediately disquiets me for reasons I can't explain. Like, what does that machine do to pigs? Wait! I don't want to know.
If you're planning to pick up the game, have fun. I want no part of your world.
