In short, they pass some of the risk of developing a title onto the player base. If x millions don 't buy episode one, they just drop development on it and those players that paid for an unfinished game bear the brunt of the decision. The money lenders save money ...

I think sometimes a designers obsession with randomness can damage the gameplay, I feel darkest dungeon suffers from this when coupled with repetitive grinding. Randomness is always good in moderation, but the player has to have control enough to feel like they are not guaranteed to lose, due to some ...

The Twitch delay can be very problematic, it is essentially dependent on where you stream and where the viewer is located. 30 second delay is not uncommon for US to UK and they aren 't generally considered the slowest of the internet countries out there. r n r nIt can ...

It 's a shame, I enjoyed Deathwatch on PC, I saw a lot of hate for it being priced far higher on PC and that stifled any attempts to discuss the game on the official steam forums. Overall I enjoyed it just as I enjoyed Warhammer Quest, the previous title ...

I Think all kinds of Negative behavior in real life can be used to enhance a theme or storyline within a game. The problem is how you navigate public perception. It 's easier for example for a fantasy game to create stereotypical racism or sexism because it 's a fantasy ...

Some of us know this happens, many of us place a higher value on a particular favorite personality though. Those people need to know it happens. As always, consider a game because it 's talked about or demonstrated, but make your own mind up before spending money on it. There ...

The whole issue with Bioware games is the devolution of choice. DA2 presented a game that was less in every way. With the addition of a voiced protagonist you sacrificed so much of the flavor from Origins and as a result it was a less satisfying game. With the reduction ...

Platform exclusives cause resentment among consumers too, this won 't show so much for unproven titles or inferior titles, however it does begin to set in with established developers/titles previously available on a consumers platform of choice. For example a year later for your chosen platform doesn 't sit well ...
