People keep talking about this thing called Christmas Limbo, some kind of fabled pocket of lost time that exists between Christmas and New Year’s. Well, I sure wish I could get some of that time as I sit here about to work my third shift since Christmas Day. To today’s entry though. Unlike my anime list, I really struggled to decide between my top two entries. In the end I made my choice, but I get the impression that on a different day, these would be the other way around. And in 12 months time, they very well may be. But this is the choice I went with and both games deserve some big recognition.
Tis that season again, the one some people wait all year for. Which I find kind of bizarre personally. Halloween just doesn’t have the same gravity here in the U.K. as I think it does in the U.S. It all seems a relatively toothless affair meant for kids yet to arrive in their teenage years. Normally, I’d ignore the event like the big grump that I am.
But in video games, Halloween is one of those unifying events that seems to take everything that is great about the holiday and throw a party for all of their players to enjoy: The seasonal event.
As a new event crests over the horizon for a popular video game, it’s inevitably accompanied by the not so distant yells of outrage for some reason or another. Not to undermine the perpetually hot topic that is cosmetic microtransactions in video games, but when it comes to Apex Legends, I can’t help but air on the side of a big ol’ shrug… Hey, anyone else smell hypocrisy in here?
