The Punk Narrative
Manage episode 236251673 series 2338525
Episode 48 of Gaming Couch. Getting closer and closer to episode 50. Facebook recently yelled at me saying activity on my page is low. Eh....i'll see about reviving it for episode 50 along with the Twitter account.
I talk about SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech for a bit and there is some story spoils I talk about. Spoilers start at 20:15. Jump to 24:35 at that point to skip the spoilers.
NOW. TALK ABOUT GAMES. I didn't watch E3, I never have watched or attended it. HOWEVER, I think this year there was only one thing that really mattered. Cyberpunk 2077. Let's be real here, that game is going to do great things for the gaming community and culture as a whole. I believe it will be landmark for gaming (most likely in a good way. If it's bad though....oh boy....). So what about Cyberpunk that makes it so amazing? Yeah the future tech is really, really cool and the same could be said for Steampunk related things. However, I think what makes these two genres amazing is the narrative and characters in them. There is something about these Punk games that have some of hte greatest characters ever. And not just as a 'heroic' or 'villianous' staple but in there interacting with the world created around them. These characters feel so natural in these fiction worlds or vastly different technology and they make it so believable and natural. That is why I love these games. The attitude in them. The way characters take control of what's happening in the story and not just being a slave to it.
So, would you kindly just sit back, enjoy the episode, and check out SteamWorld Quest and Cyberpunk 2077 if you haven't.
