Grimoire Christmas Carols: Part 3 of 3

Don’t ya just love Christmas? It’s the one time of the year where it’s socially unacceptable for people to be dickwads to each other… makes you wonder why people can’t just behave like that all the time! 

I have a lot of fun writing and maintaining this blog, and although this will be my final post until the New Year, I can assure you that there will be many more years to come of Grim-Blog goodness… even after Grimoire’s been released! I am quite satisfied with the attention Grim-Blog has received, and it can only go up from here.

I’ve noticed that the video games market has been quite shitey lately… I played MW3 at a friend’s house the other day… how this game could hold anyone who has an IQ above ninety’s attention for more than a week is beyond me, but apparently, several million feeble-minded simpletons play this game for hours on end. I actually thoroughly enjoyed Call of Duty 4, but that was a game that had excellent map design, balanced weaponry and required a large degree of skill to be good at. Activision (as well as half the games industry), decided to copy the COD4 MP formula and put in every game they made from then on, as well as water it down for casual gamers.

BORING! REPETITION IS BORING! IT GETS OLD! THERE ARE MONKEYS THAT ARE NOT THIS EASILY AMUSED!!!

I haven’t had a chance to play either of them yet, but SKYRIM and DARK SOULS are definitely on my wish list.

Consistently, the video games industry is rewarded for being lazy. They are rewarded for releasing the same exact games every year, with a new “campaign” that was slapped on in about five minutes after they’d finished the Multi-Player. Take the Assassin’s Creed series… this is a franchise that has hardly changed a bit from the first game… I picked up AC2 from the game’s store, popped it in my console, and the game had lost my interest after an hour. As far as I could tell, the whole game was a “Look awesome while you walk” simulator.

Pretty much every form of entertainment media seems to be degrading. I can’t remember the last time I went to the cinema. Music is more garbage than usual and every time I go to the book store, all I see is a bunch of adventure novels and “accounts” of people who killed so and so and fought in this war and that war.

I remember playing better games on my N64 than the crap we have now. Fancy graphics are usually a way the developers compensate for their game being shite.

Indy games are still of wonderful calibre, but these microscopic diamonds in the rough are greatly outnumbered.

Our only hope is that one game, a game that stands for truth, liberty and justice, a game that stands apart from the mainstream sewage pipe, will rise up and perform the ultimate smack-down on the games industry!

*Cough*Grimoire*Cough*

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

About grimdarkly

Name's Cooper. I'm an Advertising student, and I'm also a devout Christian that despises dishonesty. See the cognitive dissonance? I enjoy placing words in interesting formations. If not an advertising copywriter, I am certain I will find another word-based career. I enjoy playing DOTA 2, doing Christian stuff, not exercising, and designing adventures for my friends as a D&D Dungeon Master. Evidently, I'm also good at quickly coming up with "raps". Quality of said raps is debatable.

  1. Will there be any new posts soon? We are all waiting for your posts and for Grimoire.

    • Yeah, I’ll be starting up again soon. Sorry i’ve taken so long.
      The last part I was up to in Grimoire was in the musical tabernacle or something. I was stuck on some kind of puzzle involving fruit.

  2. Does Cleve still work on the game or not? Please tell us what is done and what is left to do?

    • Your enthusiasm for Grimoire always fills me with delight, Osg.

      He will probably start working on it again the second I finish the beta.

      Except for the hundreds of bugs, the game is almost finished.

      I’ll be starting up on the blog again soon. It’s just been hard lately with school and stuff.

      • Yea, such games always give feeling of some miracle that can appear on the nearest second, because this kind of games is not realistic, so you just do not know what to expect on your next step. Sry for my english.
        I’ve been working on my own game that has an engine similar to Wizardry 7, so I always interested in Cleve’s progress and ideas.

  3. Merry Christmas and happy new year bro !
    Keep us updated how your Grimoire development goes.
