I love Braid. Braid is, in my opinion, one of the greatest games of the past generation. So you would think that I would be looking forward to creator Jonathan Blow’s next game, The Witness. However, I wasn’t really excited for it. I thought it looked fine but I didn’t know much about it and I wasn’t motivated to look into it. So when it was released last month, I decided to “get to it when I get to it.” Well, nearly a month later I “got to it.”

I watched the first level being played through and it looked like a good time.

It’s been a very long time since my last Cinema Landscape and it’ll probably be a while until the next. However, I’m going to take the same approach I’ve been taking with my Gaming Landscape series and just write about the movies I’ve seen that I actually have something to write about and post one of these when I have enough material. So with this bit of house cleaning done, here is my Cinema Landscape as of February 16th, 2016: Hotel Transylvania 2, Sicario, Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, and Mad Max: Fury Road.
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Journal entry. To mix things up and help readership of these posts, I’m also going to post this on Facebook and Tumblr directly. So for those reading this on Facebook, hey! Please check out my WordPress blog. I write about all kinds of stuff there.
It hasn’t been very long since my last Gaming Landscape but I’ve been playing a lot of new games so I’ve already accrued enough experiences to talk about. So here’s my Gaming Landscape as of February 9th, 2016: The Deadly Tower of Monsters, Gemini: Heroes Reborn, Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, and Rayman Origins.
