In this article I examine why it doesn't quite stack up to the genre's classics. http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/EricSchwarz/20130717/196420/Deadlight_Analysis.php Wed, 17 Jul 2013 08:00:00 EDT BioShock Infinite: On the Importance of the Authorial Contract - by Eric Schwarz http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/EricSchwarz/20130430/191413/BioShock_Infinite_On_the_Importance_of_the_Authorial_Contract.php Design,Console/PC BioShock Infinite has produced volumes of discussion, but how does it actually stand up as a real story? http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/EricSchwarz/20130430/191413/BioShock_Infinite_On_the_Importance_of_the_Authorial_Contract.php Tue, 30 Apr 2013 08:00:00 EDT BioShock Infinite's Combat Mechanics Regression - by Eric Schwarz http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/EricSchwarz/20130415/190441/BioShock_Infinites_Combat_Mechanics_Regression.php Although BioShock Infinite is a visual masterwork, mechanically speaking it represents a major step back from previous games. In this piece I discuss how the game's biggest component - combat - has been made far less entertaining than past games. http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/EricSchwarz/20130415/190441/BioShock_Infinites_Combat_Mechanics_Regression.php Mon, 15 Apr 2013 06:00:00 EDT Fallout 3 is the worst game of all time - by Eric Schwarz http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/EricSchwarz/20130331/189601/Fallout_3_is_the_worst_game_of_all_time.php Design,Console/PC A long-winded, pointlessly analytic rant about the "plot" and "writing" of a game I hate.
