Hey, now that the post apocalypse is starting to feel less like an overused setting in fiction and more like a fucking dress rehearsal, wanna play a game about small furry animals retaking the Earth after the human race dies out? Well then play Tokyo Jungle, genius, it’s got cute pomeranians ripping the throats out of bunny rabbits, and what kind of monster can’t find joy in that. I guess there’s Biomutant now too but you don’t get to be a pomeranian in that so I don’t know how it had the balls to show its face. Actually that does raise the awkward question of what the fuck kind of animal we ARE playing in Biomutant. Best guess, a sort of hyena cat leopard raccoon lemur sloth. Like we were conceived at the Lion King wrap party and nobody was willing to claim parentage. Anyway, Biomutant is an RPG, and you know what that means. Stats, stats, stattety stats. Character creation time, let’s randomly combine seven zoo animals to create your physical appearance and then choose our favourite stat. I hate when a game forces me to make a whole bunch of character building decisions before I know the first fucking thing about the game. Do you want to put points into intelligence? I don’t know, do I.
