Interesting question David - one ...

Interesting question David - one I think about quite a lot with regards to fiction, certainly. You 're right in that a piece of entertainment delivered through a traditional channel has undergone a level of quality control that a self-published indie work has not. r n r nBut this isn ...

This is the first I ...

This is the first I 've heard of make believe theory, and it sounds super interesting. It also makes sense of how I play games whether I 'm playing Skyrim or Halo, I 'm always effectively roleplaying a story centred around the action. What 's more, when this internal narrative ...

I think it says a ...

I think it says a lot about the kind of people working in the medium right now that videogames seem to reference as far back as the late 80 's - and then stop. The majority of the 'literary ' influences for modern games - and this goes for indies ...

Well that put paid to ...

Well that put paid to more or less every single 'X tips to indie success ' article I 've seen in recent history. Reminds of the hundreds of 'how to self-publish your ebook ' ebooks I see and very pointedly don 't buy every day. Bottom line - stuff is ...

I 'd love to interview some of these trolls, but I get the feeling that getting someone to sit down and say 'oh yes, I just love sending violent rape threats, it totally makes my day ' would be pretty hard to do. r n r nAnd while I was ...

Another issue is that quests become near enough impossible to solo at G-Rank. Sure, you get odd pro players who insist they can solo G-Rank, but for most people taking on one of the top-tier multi-monster G-Rank hunts without a full roster of 4 hunters is impossible. r n r ...

Ah, Half Minute Hero, that game is awesome. I think I got really far in it, and got a load of extra modes and stuff...I know I stopped playing way before I 'd seen everything though. Gret game.

Nor can I. But it ...

Nor can I. But it is an argument that 's brought up regularly - usually with regards to games like Proteus or Dear Esther, games that are not inherently 'fun ', games you can 't really 'play ', where you 'll always have a vocal minority declaring them 'not a ...

And I imagine the tremendous profit each handheld iteration of Monster Hunter makes in Japan alone more than justifies the decision. The West might not understand it - though we still buy enough Pokemon games that we ought to - but that investment clearly pays off.

Wow. A really interesting take on the series. It 's strange to hear from a DMC fan who doesn 't automatically consider DMC3 the best one. r n r nAnd while DMC3 actually IS my favourite game of the lot, you 're dead on in many respects. DMC hasn 't ...
