The conferences for E3 2019 have been over for a few days now. Here are my thoughts:
Microsoft did well by showing off a lot of small games.
Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Updates

I missed 5 months of posting, because of how responsible an individual I am. Sorry about that.
Firstly, happy Turkey Day and Day of Materialism to the Americans here.
Secondly, I will be trying to post more consistenly as I have said repeatedly over the course of making this comic and blog. That will hopefully start tomorrow.
Thanks for being patient.
E3 2018 Review
14 June 2018
Here is a review of this year’s E3 conferences (that I watched). Here we go:
EA’s conference was pretty horrible. The only thing shown that I have any interest in is Battlefield V. There was a new Star Wars game (Jedi: Fallen Order made by Respawn) announced, the new and horrible Battlefront II (not the 2005 or so classic) is getting the Clone Wars, Unravel Two, some indie thing, a “Command & Conquer” mobile game, and Anthem were talked about. The “Command & Conquer” mobile game looked so generic and I honestly don’t care. I enjoy RTS games, and have enjoyed some C&C games, but that looked horrible. I would like to congratulate EA on killing yet another series.

So, Factorio is a game. A very, very good one at that. And I do realize that now that I have mentioned Factorio, some of your eyes have started twitching due to withdrawal.
Medieval II: Total War Review
04 January 2018
So, I bough Medieval II a while ago, since I finished the Brutii campaign in Rome: Total War and enjoyed it. But, I’m not enjoying Medieval II as much and I think I know why: the religion system is annoying. It isn’t annoying in its entirety, the Crusade system is very nice, but I just wind up annoyed at the Pope, and have now gotten to the point in my campaign where, when my faction is excommunicated, I just go murder the Pope. This undoes the excommunication and seems to have no consequences. I also seem to have managed to completely bug out the cardinals, as there are currently only three seats occupied. I am nine hours into my playthrough according to Steam, and I control all of central Europe, Scandinavia, the Adriatic coast, and most of France, Italy, and the Middle East, along with having Tunis. None of the factions in the world can do anything to me at this point, unless they decided to all band together, and even then I would still have a good chance. Compare that to Rome: Total War where for about 15 hours, most factions were still a threat to me. I personally feel that Medieval II is a good game, probably around a 7 on my scale, but worse than Rome: Total War.
