I should preface this rant by saying that having tutorial elements in a game isn’t bullshit. However, when there’s a whole tutorial level cordoned off from the actual game, that is bullshit. The reason this particular issue is on my mind is that I downloaded Super Time Force from the Playstation Store. The big perk of the Playstation Plus account is being able to download some free games that you may not have played unless they were free. Some games are excellent, like Rocket League, and some are not so good. I hesitate to say bad because, well, I haven’t downloaded all of the games they’ve offered and the ones I downloaded were never really bad; some didn’t interest me, but that doesn’t mean someone somewhere isn’t enjoying the hell out of them. But I digress. So I downloaded the game Super Time Force, courtesy of the PS Plus account, as a trial because the game looked interesting and indie platformers have been some of the best titles in the last few years. I tried to go into the game with no expectations; I hadn’t heard anything about the game, but the trailer looked entertaining.
This past week I finally got to watch the Netflix show Sense8. I was hesitant to watch it at first because, though the premise of the show was intriguing, I hadn’t heard what the show was actually about. True to Netflix fashion, the brief tag attached to the show didn’t help make its case; but regardless to my lack of knowledge of the show, I knew, for I am a sucker for shows I can absolutely binge through, I would eventually come to watch it. And I’m happy that I did, for as I am a sucker for binging shows, so too am I a sucker for Wachowski projects.
