Hey everyone, AlmightyDuke here! Welcome to the Graveyard Shift, the nightly chat space on Talk Amongst Yourselves, Kotaku’s reader-run blog, where you can talk about all the nerd culture you want. Whether you’re a long time TAY member or a newbie trying to say hello, take some time to introduce yourself.



I’ve been slowly working though my backlog in the last week or two. Having uninstalled my entire Steam library might have helped. It’s a lot easier to focus when you have only a few games playable at once instead of hundreds.

Two games I’ve played through so far, Bastion, and Betrayer have really stood out. Bastion because it’s well....Bastion. Bastion was a fun game although I did kinda rush through it. Finished it in a single session, rolling for movement, etc. The art style of the game was what really stood out, as does the art style of Betrayer. Betrayer is a mostly monochrome game with shades of red tossed in for the same reason as Mirror’s Edge, important stuff.

What games got you feeling artsy? Any recommendations for a person wanting a unique looking game?

Not into the fancy stuff? Like the grey and gritty style of a guy standing in front of an explosion? As long as it plays well, I’m in! So talk amongst yourselves, The Graveyard Shift is open for business.

Tunes for the night:

Overwatch - No Mercy - The Living Tombstone
