December 11 – December 17

After months of waiting, Kickstarter backers who opted to receive Yooka Laylee on the Switch can finally be disappointed with those of us who bought on other platforms. Hooray? In other news about games that harken back to old favorites but are sure to disappoint, Cars with Guns: It’s About Time tries to bring back vehicular combat and couch co-op at the same time.
Welcome, TL;DP Fans! As longtime readers may well recall, I like to do a theme for the month of December. Usually it’s alliterative, or some kind of gregorian pun. This December will be no exception. I’ve decided to go back to gaming’s roots and play some important games that I missed when they first came out.

December 4 – December 10

Quite the mix this week. The Switch continues to get ports of indie darlings from other platforms, Telltale keeps cranking out The Walking Dead seasons, and Destiny 2 gets an expansion. On my list of “I never heard of that, but now I want to hear more” releases, we have Autobahn Police Simulator 2, which I’m interested in only to see what traffic enforcement means on a road with no speed limit.
The follow-up that Spintires deserves.

Heroes of The Realm Launched!

Very happy to kick off the next GWJ storytelling RPG podcast Heroes of The Realm! Thirty years ago when they were kids, our players were pulled into a world of mystery and magic where they became heroes and saved the realm from disaster. After their work was complete, the powers that be kicked them back out into the real world where only mere days had passed.

I’m very much looking forward to the Switch getting the sort of library where publishers don’t think they can get away with inflating the prices for ports.
