3 Days In And I Am Loving The Australian Netflix

First everyone seemed cynical, and they had every right. When is the last time Australians paid a fair price for anything tech related? Getting screwed on consumer products is a national pastime.

Why should Netflix be any different?

Then there was the surprise. The surprise that, when Netflix announced its pricing strategy in Australia, it was entirely reasonable. More than reasonable in fact: downright fair.

Back in September of 2012, when I first heard that Obsidian was launching a Kickstarter for a spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate, I got a little… uh… too excited.

20 Hours In, I'm Obsessed With Bloodborne

The Blood-Starved Beast has poisoned me. I’ve run out of antidote and health potions, but I’m not willing to die.

I've Been Dreaming About BloodBorne

I’ve played for about 15 hours, but I’ve been dreaming about Bloodborne.

It’s sort of a waking dream. My two-year-old son is inside my game, sabotaging my character, trying to mess with my stats. My son isn’t an enemy necessarily, more like weight dragging at my heels. He’s pulling me back. He’s screaming in my ear as I move. Clinging to my coat tails when I attack. Almost like he’s trying to drag me, kicking and screaming back to the real world.

It sounds ridiculous, but I’ve been having actual literal dreams about Bloodborne and I’m not alone.
