Apple Arcade thoughts:

  • Huh. Apparently I can try Apple Arcade already.

  • First thought: why would you launch with this many games? This is too many games. Second thought: these games look like free iOS games.

  • I’m sure there’s something here that makes them better, but it sure isn’t in the descriptions and screenshots.

  • What’s worse, the screenshots and descriptions look like rip offs. This game looks like it’s trying to be the cards from Slay the Spire with the hair from The Witcher 3. https://t.co/hTIlzcUuAC

  • Like, we get it. You like Breath of the Wild. https://t.co/i9r8kFNbZf

  • I was going to knock this one for looking too much like Bravely Default but it’s actually by square so I guess that’s fine. https://t.co/C7nDhjBB4a tweet of the decade. https://t.co/3G9EeL2yu9

  • I am honestly surprised that Sonic 2 isn’t an Apple Arcade game.

  • I am less surprised that Square Enix’s game is taking 15 years to download.

  • I bought a video game: Assemble

    still got it. #SNES #NintendoSwitch https://t.co/CDFu2tct9w
