Games I Played in 2023: The Thread

Sable is mellow, introspective and sentimental.
It’s a game about moving from childhood into adulthood. It’s about being aware you’ve changed, and trying to put your finger on who you are now.
Now that Elden Ring's DLC has been announced, it's time to ask: what 𝘪𝘴 the Shadow of the Erdtree?
I've done a deep, deep, deep dive on the lore and mythology surrounding the single enigmatic image we've got so far - come take a look:
Someone just commented on this highlighting that FromSoft DLC always have really obvious names and it’s actually so funny??
You’ll never guess where “The Ringed City” is set
What could “Artorias of the Abyss” be about?? 👀👀
“The Old Hunters?? You won’t believe this
The whole crew of the mantis is broken people, gamblers and failures. They have this goal, this fantasy of rebuilding the Jedi, but when they get the names of all the potential Jedi kids they say “fuck this.” “It’s not fair to put a whole generation through what we went through.”
