Okay, so I know I’m over a year behind, but I blame making a human and stuff – I’m finally getting into The Witcher 3. It’s sort of all I want to play at the moment. I know you all know this, but wow what a great game. Even after all the hype has settled and way after the fact, the game is seriously solid. Stay tuned for next year when I tell you all about how I’m enjoying The Division.

In Other News: Video Games used the weirdest marketing techniques, Vivendi is always the bad guy, and id somehow thinks PC exclusivity will eliminate excuses.

Here’s the news we didn’t post today because the guys were too busy getting brain bleach after I traumatized them.

    I thought DOOM looked and played glorious on console but whatever, it’s id’s toys so they can do what they want I guess. Probably lucky we got Overwatch to begin with
