Kotaku editor-in-chief Stephen Totilo returns to wrap up this week’s Digest as we talk about The Unfinished Swan. I was pretty skeptical of this one, and indeed, at times I grew frustrated with its twee mannerisms and lack of challenge. But the affecting final act of the game crystallized the whole experience for me.
Since I was met with howling derision in the comment threads when I maligned muffins in this space earlier in the week, I hesitate to say this, but I’ve never developed much of a taste for beer. So you could argue that I was BIAS against today’s digestible. But even I can enjoy a good beer from time to time, and this pumpkin ale was in another sphere altogether. When will the scourge of pumpkin flavor release its grip on this culture? WHEN? Okay, in a couple weeks, I guess. It was a rhetorical question.
