Yeah, I listened to that podcast and cried and also screamed a little and hit my head pretty hard.

I listen to podcasts mainly when my corneas come off.

That seems like awful timing. Are you sure the podcasts aren't making your corneas come off?

Also, Garnett has apparently started up another podcast, if you hadn't noticed:

Podcasts are great because I need my eyes open for a minimal amount of time to launch them on my phone, and then they play for a long time, sometimes hours. It's all sound, I don't have to open my eyes.

A funny thing - my eye problems have given me a knowledge of eye drops that I got to put to use at a client's. The president had just had lasik, and was having problems with dryness and irritation. I gave him a handful of my artificial tears, and linked him to the brand on Amazon. Woo!

GOG is offering pre-orders of Witcher 3 already, together with a lot of bonus content. Wondering if I should go for it now or not. I quite enjoyed the previous iterations, even with the ridiculous difficulty curve of Witcher 2.

Next "Souls" game is called Bloodborne, and is anticipated to be a PS4 exclusive.

It does seem that way. I hope it's just a timed exclusive but I fear not.

Sony is running a flash sale until tonight, for anyone interested. Picked up some good stuff: Papa&Yo, Machinarium, The Cave, Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee, Wild Arms 1 and 2, and Thomas Was Alone, all 0.99 cents each.

Thomas Was Alone, Machinarium and the Cave are all great. I've got Papo & Yo also but I haven't played it yet. I think Dyad's on sale which is totally worth checking out too

I really like Papo & Yo, even if it's pretty short.

Yah, Papo & Yo was really good. I think they could have maybe put a little less effort into making the metaphor quite so obvious? At a certain point it's like "Yes guys, we get it". But overall a really good game.

Wish I'd realized Machinarium was point-and-click before I'd gotten it on PS3. Oh well... probably still save it for last, though.

Now onto The Cave.

I played the Cave enough to get every ending with each character, loved it.

Machinarium is interesting but yeah it'll be a little more annoying on the PS3

Oof, yeah, that's a pretty big hill. Looks interesting though, I'll try and spread it around.
