So before I get started, where the crap have I been? Well, after that last post on 11/16/18 I ran out of pictures and time to post anything more. The joys of helping run a family during the holidays. It’s been a rough couple of months.
I mean, it’s taking me almost a month to get to looking at this tweet we’ll get to into a moment.
Now, if you don’t follow this guy’s blog about gaming yet, I’d highly recommend heading his way. You can find him over at Adventure Rules.
Aw, thanks Kim! 5 games, 5 generations, 5 friends. My theme – great soundtracks!

Over the summer we got in a lot of playing Detroit: Become Human.
If you haven’t played this game yet and you have a PS4, I very highly recommend it.
Little Miss was very inspired by the game and created four pieces of art for it. I’ve posted them on twitter before, but I thought I’d highlight her three “character-centric” pieces here too.
I’m not going to give much background on any of them, just in case you’re somebody who is interested in playing the game, but those of you who have played through a few times should hopefully recognize some key scenes.
Well, it’s easy to put a date on this picture because it’s the release date for Detroit: Become Human, May 25, 2018.
There’s a funny backstory to this though.
The announcement came out for this two years ago at E3. The developers of Beyond Two Souls and Heavy Rain bringing us a game on the PS4? Yes please!
Redlfare excitedly pre-orders it, trusting Amazon’s estimated release date of December 31, 2016… and then it suddenly becomes December 31, 2017 when she goes to check it.
She’d ordered it for me for Christmas that year (2016) with a sweet little IOU slip. We do that sometimes for games. I know I certainly don’t mind waiting for an awesome game when the release date is already close to a special occasion.
Amusingly, this came out two days after my birthday in 2018, so maybe she preordered my birthday gift two years early? 😉
This has been a very highly anticipated game for my household though, and eventually there will be a section of scenes played by yours truly over on Monk of Mists https://monkofmists.wordpress.com/ . It’s sort of a pain in the butt to set up recording the PS4 reliably, so I’m probably not going to do that, but if you don’t mind spoilers of random scenes from that game, they’ll be on that blog once the game has been out for a while longer.
My review of it so far? Fantastic. I can’t wait to watch Redflare and the teenagers play it and see how our two stories differ.
