It seems that the universe is having a bit of a laugh at my expense this week.
Note: The following review does not contain spoilers, except maybe in an alternate universe where the ending to Far Cry 5 was better than it was. So I guess this is a spoiler, of sorts. It’s a spoiler of what isn't Far Cry 5's ending.

I’m not sure how Chris (or Mantid, for that matter) missed this one, but NIS America is publishing a game called Assault Spy into early access this week. It’s a stylish, character-action game where you can pick from one of two characters to fight a bunch of giant, walking smart-phones by beating them to death with your briefcase.
I’ve never been so delighted to find out a game wasn’t Metal Slug.

I was very excited to see that the Brothers Chaps were making new videos recently, so you can imagine the trajectory my mood took between seeing HomestarVR in this week’s list and clicking the link to the Steam page.
In the list of Things Everybody Should Know, I have a number of gaps. I don’t know how to drive a stick shift, for example. I used to feel ashamed of that, until I realized that the overlap between people-who-will-shame-me-for-using-an-automatic-transmission and people-who-have-opinions-I-care-about is an empty set. Another thing I never learned to do was play poker.
