Overwatch is free, Ubisoft hates stories and my review of Dishonored 2

Ubisoft hates stories

Today’s Episode

Ubisoft can we talk? Ubisoft hates stories? Apparently, they do not want to write narratives anymore. I cannot remember the last game I played where the story was good. Ubisoft hates stories. They do not want to create interesting characters. The problem with gaming stories is they all seem to follow a pattern. Yes, I know there are only some many ways to write a story.

Today’s Episode

The review happened. I finally played enough of Titanfall 2 to give my review. It was an interesting game. I liked it but, you have to listen to the show to find out the rest.

Dishonored is back!

Dishonored is back, and it is taking place at a different location. Set back into the shoes of the great Corvo as he slices his way (or not) through levels of deception and a city full of despair. Emily is a playable character as well. She is getting some interesting abilities as well. The Outsider has bestowed her with powers to retake her kingdom or at least burn down what the usurper has stolen.

This is going to be an interesting ride, and robots seem to be upgraded from the original game. This does take place  15 years after the original game. Emily is all grown up, and mad as hell. Get ready to blink, and do more crawling in air ducts this will be a fun ride!

Are you excited?
