What’s the best game that’s uncomfortably pro-monarchy? The Best Games Ever Show Episode 50

Hey fellas, is it royalist to build an entire artistic medium around individual power fantasies? Welcome to the Best Games Ever Show episode 50: The best game that is uncomfortably pro-monarchy. Video games are absurdly monarchist. Nintendo’s biggest franchises both have you running around after a princess. Final Fantasy is littered with royals showing up as quest givers, party members, and protagonists. Fable III is entirely about seizing your divine right to rule, and leads to an infamous sequence where you are tasked with deciding the fate of the kingdom through a series of binary decisions: the point of the…

Classic WoW queues are still a massive problem, and unless people jump ship, they will only get worse

Following almost 2 weeks and a controversial blue post, consequences of server issues are bound to have rippling effects. It’s been some time since the launch of World of Warcraft Classic’s Wrath of the Lich King pre-patch, an update which saw many of the popular servers, including fresh servers meant to give new and old players a totally green experience, suffering from some serious queue times that made actually jumping in and playing the game incredibly difficult. Now, Blizzard has put out a statement, but the consequences of their actions (or inaction) are starting to be felt. This statement, released…
