Well I suppose since everyone is doing it, I might as well do a journal myself.
I'm cheesy with this, but I loved all the so called fanfic fuel. Those scenes were some of the darker ones in the series without being distasteful and the final alternate future left around a lot of nice theories. Buuuuut then there's the ending... I think I'll refrain from listing all my thoughts on it or else it'll turn into a giant bulleted list like the previous journal but suffice to say it wasn't bad. It was just...weak. There are so many little ways in which it could've been done better, if only there was more attention to detail put in. Time travel is always difficult to write, and with such a high stakes episode, attention to detail and some more story coherence would've done a great deal to help. I've seen a lot of great suggestions to improve it and I can't help but think I would've enjoyed those more.
Also this should've been the ending. :[
In other news, it seems like two of my most beloved things are getting reboots!
Not much to say here, I think it'll be in good hands in Adult Swim's hands. We'll see how that goes!
While I loved the first Psychonauts game, and I'd recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat, I'd really really suggest you to be cautious about supporting Psychonauts 2. Double Fine have a terrible track record about money management and some of their projects were terrible financial failures:
In short, Broken Age was kickstarted for $400k and raised $3,3m and got EXTRA funding from one of DF's other projects AND Steam Early Access and they still had to split the game into two parts to make it happen.
Spacebase DF-9 was another one of their games that went through Early Access but then the game was released in a poor state with many of the promised features missing due to lack of funding. The game was quickly rushed to release status along with the source code despite it being in no shape to be called a finished product.
On top of that, Tim Schafer is a social justice warrior and there's been quite a lot of rumors about what he and the team did with all the extra funding their games got. If you need even more potential reasons for concern, the crowdfunding platform Fig was created by members of Double Fine (make of that what you will) and there was this exchange a few years back that makes their goal of $10m for Psychonauts 2 (from crowdfunding + external partnership + their money) very questionable indeed. archive.is/CJrq3
Anyway, looking forward to your opinion on any of these (if anyone even reads all the nonsense I post about
