The other thing to consider is that even a perfectly healthy matchmaking system would, in theory, randomly distribute the people who marked to avoid him, which means that if 11 people avoided him that 's probably 11 different games he 's being refused from. Also, if he 's solo-queueing, that ...

I like to champion Megaman X 's intro level as an example of excellence in the medium, but when looking at any Megaman games as a whole I would fully agree that they 're not very good examples of teaching the player. They have their moments, of course. They do ...

Undertale doesn 't want the ...

Undertale doesn 't want the player to try out every ending or see every possibility. It doesn 't want you to do everything just to see what is possible, Undertale simply wants the player to earnestly engage with it. r n r nThis point is why it feels so weird ...

X-2 had blitzball I don 't even remember. Was too busy making repeat playthroughs so I could game those catnips in the 100-level dungeon underneath Bevelle.

It 's pretty much amazing, especially if you get a team together and use voice communication to coordinate your team 's efforts. It 's like TF2 had an illegitimate child with LoL. It is also so polished that most of my coworkers are calling it AAAA. r n r nRight ...

I look at it differently. The difference between games and film is that the story and its events happen to you in a game, rather than just happening in front of you with a film. From that perspective, it doesn 't matter if the player has agency to change the ...

Oh man, if you 've never played Link to the Past, you should find yourself a copy, either physically or through the Virtual Console store, or something. Great game, holds up very well.

There are definitely shades of the console wars, and while I think Oculus has a great software library out of the gate, I also think they 're doing themselves a disservice with their walled-garden approach. Maybe it 's supposed to be the new form of razors and razorblades , but ...

I feel similarly about HLD 's difficulty. It 's a gorgeous game, and I really want to like it a lot more than I do. But those difficulty spikes, man... r n r nThere 's a fight on the east side of the map that really demonstrates what I mean. ...

When you call Early Access a timebomb , I expect you mean that either devs or consumers will decide to abandon it because it 's not useful. r n r nI 'd like to offer a counterpoint, after digging a little deeper into the data. I took the metascores of ...
