Let’s Play: Broken Age
I’m good at puzzle games, I tell myself. They’re my wheelhouse, I tell myself. I’ve got this, I tell myself.
I’m playing Broken Age, because as I’ve said before and will say a million times more, I am a DoubleFine fangirl and anything they ever make I play. And it’s a beautiful game. And I started playing full of complete confidence that I would play through it quickly. Let me show you how that went within the opening chapter.
So anyway I love it, despite the blast to the ego. I can’t wait to play more. I actually care about the end of this story! Already! Rare.
It’s not just the voice acting that makes it great, but that helps. Good voice actors make a big difference in a game. Imagine Portal 2 without Stephen Merchant or Ellen McLain, right? (I’ve had Portal on the brain. I think I’ve always got Portal somewhere on the brain.
Some part of me is always quoting GlaDOS at people I don’t like, and sometimes at people I do. I have an inner GlaDOS, people. I am a deeply mean person. I just hide it well.)
