Due to some big changes happening in my life, Too Long for Twitter will no longer be regularly updated. I simply don’t have the time to contribute articles every week, and I don’t want to just keeping posting really short pieces like the VG Music Picks.
Does this mean that I’m abandoning the site? No, I enjoy writing for it and want to keep it for posting anything I come up with like reviews, lists, or short fiction. It’s just that I will only be able to do so in any spare time that I can find, so updates will admittedly be very infrequent.
The site will also continue to be home to all and any Entertainment Dome episodes and related projects like Let’s Plays.
So I won’t say “goodbye,” because this isn’t an end, but a weird, new beginning.
This week on The Entertainment Dome, we are thrilled that Microsoft and Sony’s game of chicken seems to be wrapping up, annoyed at Nintendo’s handling of the Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection, and excited for the new Hyrule Warriors.
This week on The Entertainment Dome, after spending the last several weeks talking about Marvel’s Avengers, we shift our sights towards DC and some of its recent announcements, such as Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
This week on The Entertainment Dome, Atlus makes me looks like a fool by confirming Dante for the Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne remaster, we can’t stop complaining about Avengers, and we run through the announcements from Sony’s last State of Play.
This week on The Entertainment Dome, James and I complain about Spider-Man being exclusive to the PlayStation versions of the Avengers game, before remembering that we never covered the Xbox Games Showcase.
Ever since its initial reveal at E3 2019, I have wanted desperately to like Square Enix and Crystal Dynamic’s Avengers game. Unfortunately, nearly everything about it seemed to be forcing me to be sceptical about it.
The plot was uninteresting and a culmination of some of my least favourite ‘event comic’ superhero tropes, the gameplay appeared average at best and monotonous at worst, the hyper realistic graphics made for a grey and bland-looking world, and its mere existence as a service title akin to something like Destiny meant that this was Square Enix attempting to capitalise on a trendy market by using already existing characters as the poster boys to help push it.
I wanted to give the game a chance, though, so when I was granted the opportunity to try out the game’s beta, I took it. Sometimes, you really do need a hands-on approach to better judge a product and I’ll be detailing my experiences and first impressions here. Continue reading →
This week on The Entertainment Dome, we discuss the recent Shin Megami Tensei announcements, I’m forced to admit that I like the look of Watch Dogs: Legion, and James has good things to say about Ghost of Tsushima.
This week on The Entertainment Dome, we run through a bunch of game announcements from the past week, including the new Pokémon Snap, Min Min in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and EA’s rather mediocre presentation.
