Contrary to how most people play RollerCoaster Tycoon, crashes aren't my first preference. Too much indiscriminate death and destruction. I like to mete out my fury in teaspoons, slipped to my guests one by one. Individual tragedy lets you enjoy the subtleties of suffering, and forces your subject to wonder what they did to deserve it.

And it all started with a video game controller.

When the Destiny 2 PC beta finally kicked off, it inadvertently renewed a debate about aim assist on controllers. The problem wasn't that controller users would get a legup, but that mouse and keyboard users could enable aim assist by using certain adapters.

Remember the Xbox Onesie? Love it or hate it, there's no denying it was a stroke of marketing genius. So, like all successful original ideas - there's a sequel. And this time, it has been created in collaboration with Porsche.

I'm not even kidding. Society has devolved to the point where that statement, about a onesie and one of the most well-known luxury Motorsport brands of all time, is an actual fact.

I'm an old school South Park fan, and I loved Stick of Truth. My only real disappointment was that I couldn't create a female character. That's changed with The Fractured But Whole, but it wasn't until a recent preview I discovered exactly how gender choices play out.
