Now on Blip!
Aaron’s played some great FMV games in the past, but now it’s time to play a crappy one. Check out the Tex Murphy kickstarter here: http://www.texmurphy.com
[EDIT]: There’s a weird video problem where the PDA lady won’t show up, but it won’t lessen your enjoyment of the video any.
The Price Is Right
The release of Mists of Pandaria has gotten me to thinking about World of Warcraft. I could never get into it – even though practically all of my best friends were playing it for several hours a day, and I think some of them still do. I liked it, sure, it had a humongous world to explore, and leveling up and getting stronger gear is always addicting (damned Skinner box), but I never really saw the point of it all. The longest I ever managed to keep playing was to level 60 (max at the time was 80), and I bought my flying mount, and then I stopped playing. For good. Even though a bunch of people have told me that the game doesn’t even really START until you’ve hit the max level – which makes absolutely NO sense to me.
I think my problem was that the game could never be beaten. Most video games nowadays have a clearly definable end-goal, like “Defeat the evil Zuzywuvuz and save the galaxy!” You reach that goal, and the game’s ending plays, followed by the credits. Simple.

Aaron faces off against a new enemy — Henry Stanf. That’s not a typo.
CORRECTION: Dropped the ball pretty hard this time. Not only can you skip the intro in the iOS version by double-tapping the screen, but it’s possible to skip the intro in the DOS version by right-clicking with the mouse. Good news is this allows me to make a top 10 f*ck-ups video later on.
I actually only meant to get a couple of minutes worth, but when it comes to Tex Murphy, I could talk all day.
