Broken Skies

​Footsteps lost to the night, Uvri bent down and tightened the cloak around the boy, lowering the hood to hide his face. 


“We only have a bit of walking ahead of us.”
“How much walking?”
“Two days.”
The boy’s hand fell to his side, eyes downcast. They seemed weary and aged in the dim streetlight, a look not suited for a child. There wasn’t much he could offer Camim. Not while they were being hunted. Not until they found her.

E3 has come and gone again. It was a busy work week so I missed a few conferences (The day I had off I watched the Microsoft conference. My main console is PlayStation)  And while this year’s convention didn’t stack up to several gamers’ expectations, there were definitely titles that caught my attention.

So a quick round up of some the games presented at E3 I’m looking forward to in the coming year.

Moss

My overall pick for E3. I’ve been enjoying games like Child of Light and Song of the Deep. While it doesn’t exactly follow the same setup, it looks like a game I’d enjoy. The reader guides a warrior mouse name Quill through the story, solving puzzles and clearing obstacles for her to pass while fighting off other creatures of the forest. This is a story I can’t wait to explore.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm

I loved Life is Strange. I can’t wait to finally see who Rachel is and unfold the events leading to her disappearance in the first game.

Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom

A sequel set hundreds of years after “Wrath of the White Witch.” Evan Pettiwhiskers Tildrum is a young king usurped from his castle by the mouse tribe. He sets out to reclaim his kingdom and learn what it truly means to be a king.

Kingdom Hearts 3

The myth. The legend.

Anthem

An action RPG where bold explorers called Freelancers wield Javelin exosuits, each equipped with unique abilities and weapons, as you venture through a primeval world. World-altering Shaper Storms, forgotten ruins, ruthless beasts and marauders, not to mention forces plotting the downfall of humanity. Sounds like the Freelancers have their work cut out for them.

A Way Out

Two guys in prison, both looking for a way out to deliver their version of revenge. Cool story, yea? Except you can only play the game with another person. You both play out different scenarios of the same story, working together to make your escape.

What games are you looking forward for 2017?

Post-It #12

Things have been moving pretty fast lately. Which is impressive since I thought last month was busy. A quick rundown of events so far since I should go to bed soon:

  • We finally moved into our new place and after a bumpy day, the three of us are settling in. It’s spacious compared to our last apartment. I can’t wait to make this into a home I can love.
  • I’m starting back on a story a friend and I dreamed up back in college. We have quite a number of those but this one has had our attention the longest. Although we usually don’t reply to the other’s part for a few years, hopefully we can work on it more often and get started on another. Thinking on it, I’ll need to do some serious revisions on my end. And update my profile on the site.
  • Continuing on the topic of personal projects, I’ve been working on two zines. I set the deadline for one of them this month but my draft got packed away somewhere during the move. I’ll probably have to sketch it out again. The second one I’m taking my time with since I don’t really have it entirely figured out. You see zines with a consistent theme and something interesting  to give to their readers and I’m just meh. I’m considering getting a friend to help out. Well, she offered so I would just be accepting her help. I won’t rush it. I’ve got more than enough to think about before I dive into it.

The Eyes

“The eyes are the hardest to forget.
The eyes of her mother, wild and free. The eyes of her lover as he escorted her to the throne. Eyes forming a sea of green, blue and brown filled with horror. The eyes of a dead man outside the ballroom door.”
