    edit: actually, playing Journey with a stoner seems like it would be alright.

    I would be okay with almost every game artistically removing voice chat.

    The geth got him?

    Also yes, these days I tend to just put myself in a Live Party just to keep out of in-game chat.

    Reminds me of the joke about Resident Evil: Outbreak and why it didn't have voice chat, as a burly man's voice coming out of a Japanese schoolgirl would have destroyed the internets.

    I am saddened to discover that this game is PS3 only.

    A short time ago I would have been super excited about this game. I don't think I'd have the attention span for it anymore. I dunno, maybe I just need to get into the mood for it.

    I'm really surprised no one's gotten upset over the "i."

  • GR_ZombieGR_Zombie Registered User regular
    I think the "i" is intentional.

  • SticksSticks Registered User regular
    I agree. There is no punctuation either.

    For some reason I find the expression of the second cloth-man priceless.

    And anyway I feel like I should just bring up this comic next time someone I know asks why they can only chirp. (and the newspost reminded me I still have to play Dear Esther. It needs a Mac port.)

    Yes . . . artistically.

    I bought Dear Esther and am glad the guys got my money, but I didn't particularly care for it. I think it was a great way to experience a story, but I didn't actually like the story much. Also the script was a bit too poetic. Poetry's never really done anything for me, so maybe it just wasn't "for" me.

    I can't see the cloth people as anything other than female.

    Unrelatedly, I think they're descended from birds. Hence the tiny legs, graceful movements, flying, and chirping.

    Also I think the cloth is part of their body, not clothes.

    This post contains no spoilers for Journey.

    Journey is a great game.

    I can't tell you how true this comic is.

    I have played through Journey at least 10 times now - showing it to people, collecting things, just... relaxing. And every time I've played through it to the end, I've gotten a friend request on the PSN. Sharing this journey with another person is so priceless, even the dozen'th time... so thanks CHiAHippYo... I had a lot of fun not knowing what color your bong is.
