Oh man...Christmas is so close I can almost taste it! Maybe that is the leftover chocolate and cookies and other sweets that I am tasting...but it sure tastes like Christmas!
Did you watch The Game Awards? I did, but really only to try and win a Steam Deck. Some good games won some good awards and we saw trailers for new games but I am torn as to whether we really "need" a Game Awards show. We have award shows for movies and music and tv so why not games? Right? But why? What "real" purpose does it serve? I guess it is nice for people to be recognized for doing good work but isn't the whole thing fan voted anyway? So it could be totally all bots for one game or another and skew the whole thing. That defeats the purpose in my book.
Why am I bringing this up? Well...I was thinking about that as I watched all these 16-digit "names" win Steam Deck after Steam Deck for a good 30 minutes. They were totally fake bot accounts used by scammers and if they scooped up the generous portion of Steam Decks over the course of the show why couldn't they skew the results of the Game Awards too? I am not going to say such and such game didn't deserve such and such award because it makes zero difference to me and those people worked hard so good on 'em!
Anyway, I am treading a little too close to edge of reality here, and I don't want to trigger anyone, so lets look at a new game that is releasing this week. Yup..game...singular...uno...
High On Life
Release Date: December 13th, 2022
Platforms: PC, Xbox One, XSX/S
High On Life was created by Justin Roiland who, I found out, is the co-creator of Rick and Morty. That should give you an idea of...well...just about everything about High On Life. If not, watch the trailer below but maybe hold off on bringing a drink up to your mouth until it's done. You don't want to spit your drink choice all over your fancy Ducky RGB mechanical keyboard do you?
