I don't know why but this trailer got me so emotional
They tell me I'm so family-friendly, everybody wants to invite me to classy dinners.
The synopsis sounds like the devs are stuck up their own arse, mocking many moments from the recent gaming history (fish ai on CoD, air drops in H1Z1, non-game stuf...). I need to see more of it to form an opinion but if it's being hipster just for the sake of it, the game might not have the brightest future.
What's next - surgeon simulator isn't realistic?
I don't think they are being serious! They are taking advantage of children's interest to spread some knowledge. Maybe they are pitching for an igNobel?
Combination of day job and writing reviews for two magazines is why I usually opt-out of games that take more than 15 hours to beat, though I like a lengthy game from time to time. 10-15 hours is my sweet spot for singleplayer story-driven games, when the game won't overstay its welcome but not feel too short.
As for the longest playtimes, it's mostly multiplayer:
Team Fortress 2 - 1122 hours
CS:GO - 245 hours
Borderlands 2 - 100 hours
Titanfall - 75 hours
and Portal 2, Street Fighter 4 and MK9 sharing the same spot at around 50 hours each.
I noticed how, with age, I'm less prone to replaying my games even if I keep saying to myself how I'd love to replay this or that. In the past several years I think the only games that got replayed were Portal 2 (three times singleplayer and twice in co-op) and DmC (once on xbox, now on PC).
Frictional Games have published a brand new trailer for their upcoming game SOMA, displaying a cryptic computer terminal, a radio transmission, a hammerhead shark... wait, what?
Actually, I've bought a retail game last week. It was Diablo 3, the game was on discount at the local videogame store, grabbed it for less than 20eur.
Might be because the digital version was 15eur last week!
