Now that video games are coming out again, so is The Digest, our monthly look back at games of note—with snacks! All your friends are back: Steve Heisler, the blue Pac-Man ghost, and even Vaguely Unsettling Cardboard Santa. And there’s an exciting development on the comestibles front in this edition: We’re eating our first reader-submitted snacks. They’re homemade marshmallows made by loyal reader stakkalee, in chocolate, cherry, and blueberry flavors. Steve and I sampled the chocolate-flavored variety today; you’ll have to watch to see what we thought.
Then it’s on to the game at hand, and today that’s Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch. Steve reviewed Ni No Kuni last month, and I’m providing a different point of view insofar as I’ve “only” played the game for 15 hours or so—long enough to understand the complex battle system but not long enough to feel like the game is really opening itself up to me. Steve thinks this is less of a problem than I do.
