Evening Reading

How about a fresh chatty for this, our day in memoriam?

Finished Blade Runner last night. By finished, I mean I got hit by a weird bug about 20 minutes before the end and gave up, which felt like being haunted by the ghost of Fallout 2. Unlike 1997, however, I was able to simply watch all the endings on Youtube.

What a phenomenal game, though. It's surprising how refreshing pre-rendered backgrounds and static cameras can be after playing mostly modern games for a year or two. Slowing down to take in the atmosphere of a single shot/scene feels like a new way of playing games, and is entirely fitting for the subject. The world of Blade Runner couldn't have been more faithfully recreated and expanded.
