Remember when I told you that Wasteland 3 has great musical interludes? The job they’ve done is amazing! With a few pieces of excellent original recordings of public domain songs, they’ve spruced up this game a lot. And I mean a lot! This, again, is really impressive. And on an optional side-mission, too. I almost don’t want to look at the digital soundtrack I bought, so as to not spoil what else is coming.

Wasteland 3 is out today. I’ve played it for about 12 hours now for a review I wrote and can whole-heartedly recommend it, if you like old-school CRPGs. There’s this one scene in the beginning of the game, where I knew they had me. I was all-in after that. This guy gets shot in the head and then this amazing music kicks in… It’s so well done!

I’ve been emailed by a couple of people who asked if I’m going to play – and share my thoughts on – the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. Since I guess I’m a well-known simulator nut, it’s not unreasonable to ask.

The answer is yes, I will, eventually. But I first have to upgrade my PC. I’ve already ordered a new 1 TB SSD for this, but when it arrives, I’ll have to make time to install it and re-install Windows – which is long overdue anyway. Once that’s done, hopefully this weekend, I still need to make time to play the actual game, which could be a bit tricky. With my move to Düsseldorf coming up next month, free time is in very short supply for me right now. But I’ll be sure to let you know what I think of the game as soon as humanly possible.

Spent most of my day today playing Wasteland 3 for a review I’m writing. I’ve always loved the Wasteland series and this game doesn’t seem to be an exception to the rule. At least so far. Which is fortunate with Fallout being shit these days.

Anyone who immediately recognises who my characters are based on has my respect. You clearly know your Westerns.

Well, it looks like space legs are official!

I’ve been quite down on Elite Dangerous recently after they gutted the in-universe story telling. But if they pull this off and there’s actually interesting stuff to do on your space legs, that would be amazing. Not least because the game would then have completely leapfrogged every single aspect of Star Citizen.

ADVENT would like to remind you that the virus curfew is in place for YOUR protection. Trust in the wisdom of THE ELDERS, they know best. Stay at home while we are building the society of the future!

I’ve started playing XCOM again and the propaganda messages in the game just made me think of this.
