Serge has a temper issue.
This weekend’s had a couple of big announcements for Stuff I Like: First of all, Telltale Games released a trailer for their Minecraft game. When they first announced that they were working on that, I wasn’t blown away–I feel like I’m a bit outside the age demographic where Minecraft is just the Coolest Thing Ever. However, after seeing the trailer, and seeing what they’ve done with their Borderlands series, I think that they can make a fun little adventure out of it. Also, the fact that they’ve got voice talent like Patton Oswalt and Brian Posehn doesn’t hurt. Telltale has yet to really disappoint me, so I’ll be picking this one up when it comes out.
Also this weekend, Zero Escape 3, the sequel to 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors and Virtue’s Last Reward, a couple of amazingly mindbendy visual novels for mobile platforms was announced. Considering that there was the space of about a year where it looked like the game wasn’t going to get funding and the story wasn’t going to be completed, this is great news. I can only hope that Uchikoshi can stick the landing for this series and really blow our minds with this one. Really looking forward to it.
