Played: WHAT REMAINS OF EDITH FINCH and ELITE DANGEROUS

What Remains of Edit Finch

Last week I started WHAT REMAINS OF EDITH FINCH knowing only that it’s a beloved and award winning game in the “walking simulator” style. I think that was the best way to go into it. If you liked GONE HOME, or if you like stories that are sad, surprising, and profoundly beautiful, then WHAT REMAINS OF EDITH FINCH is for you. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

I can’t really say I’ve played much of ELITE DANGEROUS. I’ve got the PS4 version and I’ve given it several tries. It is too hard for me. The combat is too hard even in the tutorial. Flying is too complicated. Docking, annoying in the original version, is too much like work for me. I understand the latest update makes that aspect a little better but it’s too late.

As a fan of the original game, it’s very disappointing that the new game, which looks fucking awesome, just isn’t for me.
