Please be advised, the following article contains heavy spoilers for the game Q.U.B.E: Director's Cut.
I'm not, in general, a fan of twist endings. They're hard to do well, and usually betray authors who are entirely too enamored of their own cleverness. Done well, though, a twist ending can be a fantastic piece of ambivalent logic. You question what you know about the story, the world, or both, until you realize that the twist is the only thing that reconciles all of the contradictions you didn't even know were there.

It's hard to be objective about the release of Night in the Woods this week. The result of a Kickstarter campaign that raised $200,000, and the team features the unique artwork of friend-of-the-site Scott "BombsFall" Benson.
What's the game you ask? Well, on the surface, it's an adventure game, but mostly, it's a narrative game about a young woman (actually, a cat) who returns to her small town after dropping out of college and ... well, I don't want to spoil what little I know from the first half-hour of gameplay, which has been at various conventions for the last year. The reason I'm stoked is that, beyond the brilliantly weird art style, the storytelling and gameplay seem to bear more in common with Gone Home, Kentucky Route Zero and Welcome to Nightvale than anything else I can think of.
So if you like those things, you should probably buy this delightfully odd game, which is available on Steam, PS4, and itch.io.

I was worried that I’d have to choose between For Honor and De-Formers, but fortunately the latter got delayed to some point in the future, so thanks to Ready at Dawn for sleeping in a bit.
I pick For Honor with a small amount of trepidation, because I’m not entirely clear that Ubisoft is dedicated to providing single-player experiences anymore. I want to play a technical, deep, third-person combat game as a viking. The bloom comes off of that particular rose if I’m stuck fighting a bunch of teenagers who have more time than manners and spend their off-moments spamming “too EZ” in chat.

I already hated roadwork. Now I’m doing it from the other direction.
