Review Discussions are a new initiative to talk past or beyond a review or in place of a written/video review in a more timely manner. They’re an interview-style discussion hoping to discuss specific aspects of the game in question that may or may not be included in the written review. In some cases the discussion will be the only critical conversation we put out for a game, in others it may complement a review.
Hello and welcome to the Irrational Passions Review Discussion for Falcon Age. For this discussion, Jurge Cruz and Quin Hoffman sit down to discuss Quin’s thoughts on Falcon Age, the latest game from Outer Loop Games
Quin’s Thoughts in Summary: Falcon Age tells a compelling story about the effects of colonialism, and the damage it does to indigenous peoples. When it does this the game soars and makes something different. It succeeds in these moments but then falls flat once you have to move on. It builds this gorgeous world, and interesting characters but fails to execute on that at times. You build this relationship with your bird, and you name her but then never repeat her name. There are many love things to about Falcon Age, but there is also many moments which are forgettable.
