    love Fire Pro Wrestling World. Sometimes I'll just kick back and put an AI fantasy match on. Enjoying it more than the real thing lately.


    Stop by Spidey's Snack Shack and get yourself a bite!

    Kickstarter is having an odd impact on the video game world. I don't think we have enough evidence right now to determine if it's a good thing that developers are able to fund entire video games with (most of the time) a very small amount of detail regarding how the finished product is supposed to look. Some games seem to still have some very basic level design not planned out by the time that they get their full funding.

    A game that I'm excited to see, but won't be surprised if I'm disappointed by, is an indie game called Blasphemous.

    I'll be honest, I'm a violence junkie. I saw a video preview of the game, which includes several scenes that the developers haven't yet incorporated into anything playable, and I was an instant fan.

    The game is 2D, and only has a small area that's playable in a demo. You run through a desolate snowy area, and eventually arrive at a cathedral. It's noted before playing the demo that the game is still very early in its development, and is projected to be released in 2019. They don't specify a season, just 2019. Apparently it's going to be released on the Switch when it's released on PC, so that's a huge step.

    There's something very cathartic about running around as a religious zealot, tearing through bad guys who apparently ended up with their fate because they were tempted into a lifestyle of blasphemy.

    That first part is a good point. I've kicked in for two or three games over the years and while I didn't hate any of them, none of them are what I would call good. I do think the issue lies in the lack of detail as to what the finished product looks like. As it stands, I have no issue with the system because I have yet to read any real horror stories, but one will happen one day and it will be interesting to see how things move forward from it.

Creating my own characters took a lot of time, which is a big reason I haven't jumped back in, but I had my own fed and everything. Its a lot of fun to just sit back and watch your characters have it it sometimes.
    I agree. It's kind of like you can run your own EWR, with all the guys you want. And if you spend a little bit of time, you can have the correct entrance music and everything. Very good customization.
