This week, it’s Tim and I rambling about game stuff.
We discuss the announcement of the Divinity: Original Sin 2 Kickstarter, along with the public suggestion box for stretch goals (including a ‘gore and swears’ toggle), and point out not one, but two entire calls for Chris Avellone to be involved.
Crowd-funding talk naturally leads to the newly revealed Fig platform, and the merits of its slightly different investment and curation model. True to form, we also laugh at its name.
From there, it’s on to the minor question of ‘Are publishers good or bad?’ by way of the news that Star Wars: Battlefront won’t have a proper single player campaign because EA don’t think people would play it.
There’s HOT GOSSIP about Dota 2’s ‘roster lock’ drama, and then it’s back to evil publishers with a few words about Konami’s alarmingly oppressive and horrible workplace.
Game-wise, we talk about The Witcher 3, The Witcher 3’s UI, Hacknet and whether Twitch is really capable of playing Dark Souls.
