We finish with a counter-clockwise swirl at the following link.
Much of last week’s fury has now cooled into a smooth malaise. We’re well aware of some lingering tension in the industry, since we’re foremost among the people who harbor it, but what we’d prefer at the moment is to get ahead of the news instead of living perpetually behind it. Or, more specifically, to look forward from what we’re most upset about today to what we most hope to love in the immediate future. I can’t say we’ve done an especially good job on that and, judging by what’s happened in the news since this recording, next week could easily be more of the same.
Whatever the season of our discontent, we’re still mighty happy about what we’ve got in our disk trays and hard drives. Borderlands is an abiding pleasure, I’m enjoying my time as an apostle in the church of Torchlight, and Arjay has discovered the unexpected pleasures of Tekken 6. With the exception of my powerful need for Dragon Age and Arjay’s refusal to act like a sonofabitch to people he doesn’t know, things couldn’t be better.
