Waluigi’s Mansion could be the reverse-Scooby Doo game I think we’ve discussed here before - try to make it look like there are ghosts and scare Mario and his friends away
Luigi wouldn’t trash a hotel unless he had good motives, though. Although that makes me think, hapless destruction should enter the diegetic level of games more often. I want the GTA where you go from nobody to the most feared gangster in town, entirely accidentally and mostly without noticing.
The depression, meanwhile, is about my day job, and it’s been leading me to fantasies about becoming a professional streamer of a game I’ve yet to get my hands on.
Something’s not healthy about this. Being excited about a thing is okay, but this sort of all-encompassing tool feels a little like moral hazard. I don’t want to disappear, even into this.
So I’ve been pretty obsessed with a thing. Also I’ve been pretty depressed.
The thing is a PS4 game called Dreams, coming out tomorrow after being first announced like five years ago. It’s from the LittleBigPlanet people. It is basically their level-building stuff, turned into the entire product. Like, there’s a more or less complete music software package in there, along with basically everything else you need to make an actual AAA game (not that those are any sort of objective standard).
