Matt Groening doesn’t need to work anymore, The Simpsons is one of those insane, money generating properties that will keep Groening, his family and their kids afloat for generations to come. Still, I’m glad that he still has drive to create something new after this long. The Simpsons is an integral cultural touchstone for most people of my age, and Futurama was one of my favourite shows during its initial run.
I eventually did get around to trying out Gambit mode since last talking about Destiny Forsaken. In fact, I’ve spent significant time in the new mode and feel it’s a fantastic addition to the game. A mode that combines elements of both the normal gameplay; shooting the numerous enemies of the darkness, but also adding an element of direct player vs. payer competition as well.
I find myself enjoying the mode, even when on the losing side. After many dozens of games though, one little thing has been niggling at me, and the more people abuse it, the more I see it becoming a real problem for the mode.
This article started life as an especially more mundane list. One in which I listed my favourite gyms throughout Pokemon History. As I struggled to stay awake under the sheer uninterestingness of what I was writing. I had a vision, or maybe it was a dream. One of Pokemon in an entirely new light.
It got my brain going, and before I knew it, my post looking back at the game’s history was scrapped and replaced by something looking toward to the future.
