Another week has passed, the sands of time are ticking down towards our inevitable death, and we're one step closer to 2016's Game Of The Year. August ends on a somber note as we say farewell to the greatest example of why you should preorder everything, the end of true Journalism, and Pokemon GO.  Without further ado, here's your weekly update on everything terrible in our forever awkward industry.  Be sure to listen to this song while reading for maximum effect. 

 

The Headlines That Make Us Think

A desperate plea to Telltale: Please make a game out of R. Kelly's 'Trapped in the Closet'

No joke, I'm legit hoping this stupid meme becomes real. My favorite xmas eve tradition would automatically be my game of the year all year every year. 

Ever since he went to church things have never been the same

Respawn: 'We are treating Titanfall 2 like a new IP'

Makes sense since nobody played it the first time around.Titanfall 2 goty edition

Internet Killed The Video Star

Mega64 talks No Man's Sky and hype; it's a definite must listen if you're on the fence about the game or want to hear a rational point of video on why bad marketing is harmful.

Final Thoughts

Lets talk about bandwagoning.  While I'll be first to admit that its fun to write the occasional joke at someone's expense, it's easy to get carried away.  Whether or not you like a game/band/artist/movie, it's important to remember that all art is subjective and everything is for everyone.  If it wasn't, then art would be unoffensive and terribly boring. With that in mind, try to check out something new this week, whether it be a song, book, or even an obscure indie game.  Life is more enjoyable when you have an open mind ... unless it's Time Stalkers, fuck that game.  

Stay stick.
