I just don't know what to do. I am incredibly intrigued by inFAMOUS and concerned as well.

-Graphics, world and models look really, REALLY good
-Action system seems very robust and user friendly
-Powers seem powerful from the most part and have great effects
-traversal system is cool, lots of ways to get a round
-Seems to have a meaty story (now that I have read the first issue of the comic)

-Coles model!! Could it be any more generic? Scowling with a buzz least his outfit is somewhat cool...but seriously could they not do better then this? Also didn't this guy just star in the Force Unleashed?

-The in-game story animation in all the trailers is laughable. Whole body shrugs, heads that don't move and poor eye movement. It is shameful really
-Will it stay fun? I hope there is a lot up their sleeves we have not seen yet. The game seems fun...until you've lobbed lightning at your zillionth enemy. I haven't played it yet so I have no experience...but I am worried.
-Sandbox games always worry me, they tend to meander too much...too much artificial hobbling of the city and your character.

I will probably still get it, will try the demo first and wait for some early reviews though. At least the Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Beta is not a pre-order bonus!

Cool Concept Art

In other gaming news I am a sucker for a great concept picture, this one from the upcoming Bethesda Softworks game Wet was just too cool for school:

Well the game is launching soon and it is described as a highly stylized 3rd person action game. Shoot anywhere, anytime gunplay (think Stranglehold) combined with sword fighting and amazing acrobatics. The story is supposed to be zany, serious and gory, plus the main character is ridonculously hot. I like any game that can turn the concept image above into a near perfect in-game model below. There is a demo live on the UK PSN store, gonna try it tonight!

Belated PAX East 2017 Coverage Roundup - Part 3

More PAX East coverage - there are always tons of things to see and do at a PAX show and the highlight of this days coverage was an ultraviolent game called Ruiner.  It is out later this month and I can't wait to try it again!
Enjoy the continuing coverage I put out while attending the show for
PAX East Boardgame Review Final War
One of the best things about PAX is the fact that tabletop experiences are as prominent as the videogames; this year at PAX East I had a chance to try out a Tactical Card Game called Final War.  This is from a passionate group in Australia called Games Lab and it is a complex experience that blends Magic the Gathering with Dungeons and Dragons to deliver a tabletop experience that was incredibly deep but also very fun to play.
Final War is a dense game, with a large game board reserved for each player’s forces; the game can be enjoyed by 2-3 people in the current iteration; an expansion later in the year will enable a fourth player. In the ga…

Whiskey of the Year?

Late in 2015 a relatively inexpensive, frankly cheap, whisky from Canada called Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye won a very prestigious award - Worldwide Whiskey of the Year beating out out champions from Scotland, Japan and the US.  In the words of the reviewer Jim Murray:

“Crown Royal Northern Harvest pops up out of nowhere and changes the game,” said Murray of the whisky, which he awarded a record-tying 97.5 out of 100 points. “It certainly puts the rye into Canadian Rye. To say this is a masterpiece is barely doing it justice.”

Naturally as a developing Whiskey connoisseur I wanted to try this $40 bottle of Rye Whiskey myself, but an announcement like that broke the walls of the drinking world and the Northern Harvest Rye has been selling out for nearly 6 months with further accolades coming in the meantime:

In addition to being named 2016 World Whisky of the Year, Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye received a double gold medal at this year’s San Francisco World Spirits Competition.…
