Ember is a gorgeous indie RPG in the vein of classic RPGs such as Baldur’s Gate as well as action RPGs such as Diablo. This game is utterly gorgeous to look at. The environments are detailed, vibrant and lush. They’re (obviously) not up to modern AAA standard, but they’re charming, engaging and immersive.
Like a lot of people, I fell into the hype that is Pokémon Go. It is a lot of fun (to me) and I’ve been enjoying it a lot. I couldn’t dedicate a lot of play time to it when I first got it since I was still working for the majority of the day, but once the holidays began I could settle down into dedicating some quality time to playing it and I found that I enjoyed it a lot. I’m not much of a multiplayer person, so I was a little worried when all the stories of Pokémon Go players meeting up (or, worse, getting mugged) started to show up. I wasn’t sure how playable it would be for a fairly antisocial gamer like myself, but it’s surprisingly easy to play without engaging with anyone. It may not be as much fun as playing with friends, but it’s still good fun.
And then I thought that I could record some of my own experiences with the game and the things that I’d learned about it and share! I know some of my friends are also playing the game and so might be interested and there are some things that I’ve noticed that are true for me and that I haven’t really seen discussed.
