Don't worry, we are not going to share the video of our last BBQ with the family. A Story About My Uncle is an independent game which has just been released and after playing it for a while, we had to tell you a bit more about it.
Platform sequences are usually a pain in first person games, so when we launched A Story About My Uncle, we were a bit concerned. Fortunately, we couldn't have been more wrong. The way Gone North Game managed to convey such amazing sensations when flowing through the air after an impressive jumb combined with the use of a grappling hook is quite an achievement. After an introductory level paying tribute to games like Gone Home, Dear Esther, Uncharted or even BioShock, you will discover a mysterious underground world in which you'll have to make good use of your uncle's creation: a suit allowing you to defy the laws of gravity. You'll encounter many challenging obstacles to discover what happened to your dear uncle, but there will never be any violence involved. A Story About My Uncle is a platformer like no other, in which the gameplay mechanics have been carefully crafted. The game conveys very good "flying" sensations, and with all the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Uncle Fred, there's always an incentive to keep playing. The graphics may not be the game's strongest suit, but overall, they're good enough to immerse you in this unique world thanks to solid art style, and that's the most important thing. Considering its price tag ($12.99/€12), you should really give it a try.
waiting and staring, sounds realistic to me. I did a lot of that in the close-combat troop in the costal artillery :D (9 Hours ago)
Oh, and there was lots, and lots of sitting on a beach and staring. Oh, and Harry fucking Styles! Harry. Styles! Riveting stuff. (9 Hours ago)
Might as well have been watching an episode of the A-Team. "I ain't gettin on no boat, fool!" (9 Hours ago)
@asdfg: A PG-13 historically accurate (or was it) accounting of a real WW2 event that cost the lives of 30,000 soldiers, yet the best Nolan could come up with is a torpedo and some target practice (9 Hours ago)
They said the same thing about pedophiles when "to catch a predator" aired. Suddenly, they were everywhere. They've always been there and always will. (11 Hours ago)
@droezelke: I don't think it's getting worse. I think it's just reported more, has more exposure. I grew up reading about horrible shit supremacists did in the south. This isn't new. (11 Hours ago)
@droezelke: It's crazy how Charlottesville is 2 hours away from me Very frightening indeed. (12 Hours ago)
