War isn’t a new topic for games. Many games have been set against the back drop of war, many have even put you in the shoes of soldiers fighting them. Hell, we even have enough games commenting on the nature of war that it no longer feels novel for them to do so. But as one of those anti-war, “let’s all just get along” hippy types, i’ll always have a soft spot for games that look at the human cost of armed combat. Enter: Path Out, an RPG about fleeing a war torn Syria. Based, at least in part, on the life of its creator Path Out looks to be a really be shaping up to be something really interesting and i can’t wait to see how it turns out. For those interested, the game has a Demo on Itch.Io. I can’t attest to the games quality, only that i think it looks interesting. But for the low price of “nothing”, i think it’s more than worth it to give an interesting looking game a try.
At this point there is not much left for me to say about Persona 5 other than “fuck it, i my just end up pre-ordering against my better judgement”. However, there is one thing i can think to say: that took forever. Fuckin’ hell, why has it taken this long to get an English VO trailer? The game has already become Atlus’ fastest selling game in japan, you’d think they’d want to use some of that hype to increase US sales. But until today it almost seemed like they just did not give a single shit about the US market. Granted, that may be true, i don’t know how the franchise has sold here, but as a fan i’ve been getting pretty damn antsy. So yeah, enjoy yet more proof that P5 is going to be killer while i try and decide on whether or not to pre-order or keep my dignity…..got to be honest, i’m lening pretty heavily towards the former.
