// Darren Nakamura
I've always been fascinated by Euro Truck Simulator, but never jumped in because, pff, who wants to drive in Europe? This is America; we drive on American roads here and we speak American. As it turns out, American Truck Simu...

New Firewatch trailer hints at something dark


Also features first-person turtling
Jun 15
// Darren Nakamura
Campo Santo's Firewatch enjoyed a short fraction of Sony's E3 press conference tonight, but it was a good little video. It starts with high spirits, two voices joking around with one another, one guy playing with a turtle just for kicks, the usual. Toward the end, it hints toward the central conflict. Something dark is at play here. Some sort of park ranger impostor, maybe? I don't know.

The Super Mario Maker levels shown at the Nintendo World Championships were nuts. Enemies were stacked on top of each other; trampolines were being shot out of cannons; dogs were living with cats; it was mass hysteria. Within...
