Everywhere I look there are mobile-phone ports! It’s like the restaurant wars in Demolition Man, except the only game company left standing is Zynga.
There are three games that have my attention this week. The first is Positron, which I am tempted to get only to have it in my library before Disney’s cease and desist order comes through.
I fall sideways from one rooftop to the next, collecting ever more precious gems from the city's heights. Once no more are in sight, I allow Kat – the game protagonist and my in-game avatar – to leap from the Paris-inspired rooftops, bathed in what seems to be eternal twilight. She plummets to the endless depths below.
Can a game force itself to be a streaming sensation by design? #KILLALLZOMBIES aims to find out by taking an otherwise unremarkable dual-stick shooter and allowing Twitch commenters to alter the player’s experience via chat. I'm sure that will end well.
My pick this week goes to a different game that integrates Twitch user feedback.
And we're under way at PAXEast 2016!
This one's going to be a little different. I'm not actually on-site this year. However, we have our very own
DominicKnight in the Press Room, and Greg "doubtingthomas396" Decker and Julian "Rabbit" Murdoch out there in the wilds with a bunch of the GWJ gang.
Dateline: Fartsburg. Mayor DoubtingThomas is about to deliver his first State of the City speech. Afterward, stay tuned as we interview particularly photogenic members of the audience who have been pre-screened by our editorial department to make certain nobody says anything we don't want you to agree with.
What do you mean, "That mic is hot"?
