Ever hold a secret in for so long that you forget about it until you find out it’s no longer a secret, yet you still clutch that secret in a death grip? Well, that’s me and this news item on Grinding Gear Games’ great Path of Exile popping up on PS4 before the end of the year.
Lovely trailer alert below:
Earlier this year I’d gotten a hint of a whisper of a whiff it was on the way, but at some point after the ecently released Xbox One version and I filed that tease away until an actual confirmation was announced. Excellent. Now, all I need to to is figure out what game to drop off my MMO list. I really have less time to play online stuff and am supposed to dislike these types of games (allegedly). But I find myself interested in a few and will try them out for a spell. PoE is a free to play (NOT pay to win) game that I messed around a bit with on Steam and liked a lot but had to stop playing because I got busy trying to put a dent in my backlog. Anyway, it looks as If I’ll need to hop into this in December and see how well the PS4 handles the game.

Back in a bit. I was awake all last night concerned about voting, but did it early, came back and passed out for a few hours (oops). Going to put on some coffee and try to work while NOT watching any election coverage so I don’t keel over from the stress.
“Keeling over from the stress.” Yeah, let’s not do that again.
Tell me about it. Amusingly enough, I got two screeners from Arrow, so it may be the strangest double feature tonight: GAS FOOD LODGING and Orgies of Edo. Wait… I may keel over after all from that combo.
Oh, is it OK to call Forever Evil kind of inspired by EC Comics? I finally got enough people to sit down to watch it and they didin’t sacrifice me on the front yard afterwards (I don’t have a yard, I was on an Away Team mission in alien territory)
I think that’s fair, though I hadn’t read much EC at that point. Creepy and Eerie, though, definitely.
Aha. Can’t believe I forgot to mention that (given I had a stupidly large Warren collection and only fell into EC stuff through reprints and ogling some art at a convention way back in the early 80’s).

Practically the same thing, really.
