Okay, so people keep asking me what’s the deal with the weird butt-thing-in-the-sky and grass picture? Well, I was busy as hell yesterday, but(t) I so excited I had to put it up as quick as possible. I had just come from a meeting with Ernie, my lawyer, and I was thinking about my Butt sites and products and stuff, when I ran into this cute little geezer squeezer, Suzette. Suzette has this great looking purple hair, so of course, I call her Grape. Well, it turns out that Grape is like a WEB DESIGNER and knows photoshop and stuff, and when I told her how Ernie said I have to have a logo for ButtCloud, which is my cloud service where we store all the butt pictures and all kinds of private stuff that people are stupid enough to post on Facebutt (or Buttbook). So anyway, Grape said she’s be happy to make a ButtCloud logo for me, so anyway, that was it! Cool, huh? Who knows, maybe I’ll get lucky!
Journey came out yesterday, March 13th, on the PlayStation Network for non-Plus members, whom already had access to the game.
I beat it a few minutes ago. jeez. one of the most satisfying gaming experiences of my life, much like Flower (which was also developed by thatgamecompany). wonderful music, perfect visuals, engaging narrative, and the co-op ended up adding a lot to my game. you never need a partner, but there are moments where it really helps to have a friend tagging along, and for reasons I didn’t expect. it almost became an emergent narrative (wherein a story naturally composes itself as a result of the gameplay rather than being written in) at points!
yeah, i beat it in an hour and a half, but it was still completely worth $15. the gameplay never fumbles; it’s really smooth and intuitive without necessarily being easy. the game isn’t hard by any means, but it has some tricks that’ll throw some players off for a bit. i certainly saw my fair share of that just during my playthrough whilst studying my anonymous companion.
most of the trophies are exploration/co-op based, and that’s where you’ll get your challenge because some of them seem rather difficult to complete. i didn’t check, but i’m pretty sure there’s a chapter select once you complete the game once.
anyway go buy it or grab it from a friend’s profile or hell just play the whole game at a friend’s house. it’s a totally fulfilling experience, and i would imagine that it’s worth multiple playthroughs.
