Unfortunately I will have to keep this brief as it is early in the morning and I work night-shifts. I know I said a series of articles about my take on the Freelancer Saga would be coming, but I have to make this one short digression I’ll start out by saying that until recently Gone Homewas a P.C exclusive game until very recently so I had not had the chance to play it. It came to me strongly recommended by my friend Lee. I had never seen him so adamant about something like this before. Lee is a person who I can totally trust with my gaming or entertainment life without worry, so for him to tell me to literally drop what I was doing to get this game caught my attention. Needless to say, I was not let down. If you the reader have had a chance to play before seeing this, I hope you will agree that this game gave us a unique experience that I hadn’t really gotten before. Once again I hope any readers who have already played the game will agree.I fear that I can’t say too much about Gone Home because I don’t want to ruin the experience for anyone. If you have the opportunity to go into this game blind, I strongly encourage you to do so. Lee told me not to google anything about the title, look for nothing on the internet, to go in with as little information as possible. So I did. And I was rewarded for keeping myself in the dark on this one. I will say again, if you haven’t yet played this game and know nothing about it….keep it that way. Go in with fresh eyes like I did and you will have a very interesting time.
Let me just start this out by saying that I am a huge Rooster Teeth fanboy. I remember in high school when the first episode of the series Red vs. Blue debuted. That was a good time; I was immediately hooked by the fact that the people at a fledgling company called Rooster Teeth were using a science fiction action game to tell a story where the big point is that nothing happens. I hadn’t seen anything like it before. The humor was amazing, the characters were amazingly memorable, and the story very quickly drew me into the world these people were creating. Now Rooster Teeth is a massive company that is involved in many different projects and even foster an amazing online community the likes of which I have rarely seen. But it’s always Red vs. Blue that brings me back.
