@Pascal r n r nTwo ...

@Pascal r n r nTwo points: r n r n-Industry qualifications are helpful but not required for criticism, or every food critic would be a five-star chef. Although you 're right that this is the sort of judgment better passed by someone who has worked with those designers. r n ...

This is a blog, not ...

This is a blog, not an editorial. We don 't dictate what people blog about though we do try to highlight the best stuff . If it ends up that a number of our members blog about diversity in the industry, it 's because it 's a subject that matters ...

Human males are built stronger ...

Human males are built stronger and more aggressive. So, men in general are more suitable for combat. r n r nAnd absolutely no humans teleport, or have magic powers and absurd physics-defying strength and regenerative abilities. I really think it 's time we retire this one as among our rationales ...

Mental capacity of the majority Seriously r n r nIf you don 't enjoy the series, that 's fine enough, but I 'd really encourage you not to make projections on people 's intelligence just because they don 't share your tastes.

I think it 's worth remembering that Volition is DELIBERATELY unbalancing their game here to see where it goes, as Tony observes above. r n r nWithout giving away more than is present in the trailers, the open world you 're traversing most of the time is explicitly a simulation ...

I mean they are 'gamey ' in the sense that narrative interjections literally remind the player they are playing something constructed, as opposed to just letting the game flow naturally. r n r nUnfortunately, words like immersion or experience are a little too loose and overused to be very applicable ...

Uh, sorry It 's not uncommon at all for developers to consider adjusting or retooling their creative vision based on feedback. Wedin also says very explicitly and I did my best to emphasize this in the writeup that this was something THEY decided as devs, it 's not as though ...

I believe I was speaking to the direction Merizan as a CM was going in, not the BSN 's current state which even other BioWare folks will agree needs work, I think you 'll find .
