Message in a Binary Bottle

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP

This is one of the things I really liked about Sword & Sworcery: after this presumably-deliberate homage, the sword-sheathing animation has this incongruous ho-hum quality. I guess it fits the way the game treats combat as an unfortunate necessity rather than the point of the game.

(This is not to imply that I consciously noticed any of this when I was actually playing the game.)

"cancelling my order"? I realize GameSpot and GameStop are very close anagrams, but if you give your credit card info to one of them you should be clear on which is which. Not the biggest issue with this genius, I know, but for me that’s the cherry on top.

And yeah that’s mostly why I’m not crazy about calling myself a gamer
