The Daily Hotness: Channeling O.J. Simpson

Check out everything Destructoid did today

Ron Gilbert, of Monkey Island fame, as well as the recent The Cave (presently free on PS+!), wrote a blog post: "If I Made Another Monkey Island..." Like O.J. Simpson's bizarre book If I Did It, Gilbert adamantly stated that he is not making another Monkey Island. Several times. Don't get your hopes up. No, this is more an interesting thought experiment on Gilbert's behalf. One which didn't tickle me as it did many. I find a lot of the retro tenets (insane logic) of adventure games to be a bit non-functional. Still, interesting. Begin speculating against Gilbert's behest. I mean, LucasArts is no more, right?

Today, Jim played with Skylanders toys, Chris Carter reviewed the retro Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers in its first Western release, Steven Hansen previewed the newly physics laden NCAA Football 14 and the fantasy adventure Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons,  Abel Girmay previewed the cute-looking Cloudberry Kingdom, and more!

I can now play the first 20 measures of Little Trinketry at full speed. It ends when you start playing chords with the right hand. Also something about carts #passdatgas [youtube]http://youtu.be/40fulS_olU8[/youtube]

Why can't we have more Lovecraftian horror games? It's such a great setting, but nobody ever uses it.

Philosophical question: if the only way to get Batman: Arkham Knight to run decently on my laptop is to lower all the settings and have it run windowed, am I really playing it?
