Re: 443: Tetris Effect

VR applied to something old, “It’s more than Tetris”, I was told. Did not expect it to make me cry. Yet it did, and I don’t know why.

Re: 433: Rayman

Rayman was the first video game I ever played. To this day, the hiccup noise when you’re hit, the “Yeah!” at the end of each stage and numerous other sound effects are etched into my brain.

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (19.1.20) - 402: God of War (2018)

Re: 343: Horizon Zero Dawn

I was watching Giant Bomb’s stream of Sony’s E3 2015 press conference. Guerrilla’s Hermen Hulst announced they were finally leaving behind the greyscale hellholes of Killzone. Their brave new world was to be a post-post-apocalypse, full of flora and fauna, tribes and... motherbleeping robot dinosaur...
