Here is my second hour of Man of Medan for your viewing pleasure! I should look into seeing if I can add audio to these but then I run the risk of waking up my sleeping wife and son but it might still be nice.
I never did get good at the calm heartbreak mechanic.

In my tour to avoid playing any of my current games, I started playing Hellblade : Senua’s Sacrifice.
I’m using IGN’s Lorestones Location guide to find all 44 of those so I don’t have to do a second playthrough just to find one or two that I missed.
They are giant rocks so I imagine they are hard to miss. From reading ahead, it seems like only one of them is off the beating path so that’s good to know.
I only played for an hour so I got to Valravyn’s Keep.
The game is very interesting and looks stunning!
Melina Juergens, who portrays Senua, really put in a lot of work!
I decided I will start following her through Twitter.
I am not playing with headphones but I will find a pair to get the full experience.
A fair warning though, the subtitles only really do the main story script and a few of the other voices, so if you are hard of hearing, you might be missing out on some of the atmosphere the game developers were creating. My family is sleeping when I game so I have to have the subtitles on but I played with the volume at ten and got most of the experience.
I kept getting creepy vibes from the game, and I’m sure that is all due to the outstanding audio work that went into the game, plus the visuals.

I have committed to the idea of buying Murdered : Soul Suspect on Wednesday. I imagine the chances are super small to get it for free as one of the October free games.
I did put in my prediction that we will get Murdered : Soul Suspect and Inpatient.
