I Love You 3,000 – This is In Third Person’s 3,000th Post

In the midst of creating content to celebrate In Third Person’s 10-year anniversary, I noticed that we were nearing another milestone. That milestone is now.

This is post #3,000.

Not really sure what to say here, as I kind of spent all of 2019 celebrating the site’s longevity. However, it feels like a missed opportunity if I don’t acknowledge it in some way.

(pauses for 20 minutes to think of an angle)

How about this?

It’s Valentine’s Day! We’re Doing More Love Songs Because I Said So!

Were you expecting something about fave romances in video games? Characters I’d want to date? Maybe a think piece on why there aren’t enough video games about love and romance? I actually explored that last topic years ago and am interested in revisiting it someday.

Forget gaming for today. I want another excuse to talk about love songs. What better time than now? Here’s another playlist for your Valentine’s Day celebrations, however dramatic or low key they may be!

Luigi’s Mansion 3 and its Handling of Backtracking

My journey through Luigi’s Mansion 3 recently wrapped up. Before we close things out with a full review, there’s one aspect of the game that I wanted to touch on that’s been  a rare misstep in my overall experience: backtracking.

KEEP COLLECTING AMIIBO! Why it’s still worth getting these Nintendo figurines!

The Amiibo hype train certainly isn’t what it used to be. Even so, that hasn’t stopped me from building my collection! Everyone’s reasons are different, but I thought I’d share my rationale for collecting Amiibo figures to this day!

This video was so fun to make! Spent way too long capturing slo-mo clips; most of which didn’t make it into the final cut. Will be sharing a lot of these slo-mo clips separately on social media!

The resurrection of Anthem? According to EA and BioWare, a major overhaul is coming

Anthem was…a bit of a letdown. It showed well as a proof-of-concept for a game where players fly around and shoot things, but everything else about it felt half-baked. Every mission featured the exact same structure and your in-game actions did little to tie into the game’s larger narrative.

I ultimately traded my copy away not long after experiencing the blatant padding that was its tomb missions. Not long after, Jason Schreier published an explosive expose on the development of BioWare’s most recent disaster, further solidifying the notion that it was best for me to walk away.

Many have long since abandoned Anthem, but EA and BioWare aren’t ready to let go. According to a recent post on BioWare’s blog, the game will be receiving a major rework in the future.

Throwing two-to-four players into a world where four deadly viruses are on the verge of destroying humanity, you must work as a team to contain the spread while developing cures before it’s too late. Yes, the game is incredibly stressful, but there’s a magic that comes with working as a team and leveraging each character’s unique abilities in order to overcome this challenge.

Just like the viruses you’re trying to eradicate, the hit board game has spread to the Nintendo Switch? Is this version a plague on the console? Or a cure for your digital tabletop fever?

In order to get the information on Yennefer’s whereabouts, we’ve got to take down a griffin for the Nifgaardians. Geralt gets sidetracked with a few menial tasks along the way, but this Witcher 3 stream ends with a chaotic battle against the big bird! During our quest, I take a moment to share all the new toys and art in my game room, and rant about my fascination with Kidz Bop. Yes, really.
