@Robert Boyd r n r nThat 's not entirely accurate. To be fair this article was written after a night with the re-balanced game. While loot drop rates have been increased, the result is that more junk drops. Where I 'm taking issue is the sheer size and randomization of ...

mixing the reality of warfare with the illusion of a 'game' is cynical. With a videogame, yes. What about Ludology

@Martin Khufu It's a bigger rag against the game than you think. It would be much easier with an autosave system...a good way to get the player to respect your core gameplay, even if it is repetitive with no immediate goals, is by introducing artificial difficulty. This is a very ...

Yeah that's interesting, there is a certain satisfaction to finding your own way to game the system. Personally I felt like, in this case, it was too tedious to be especially rewarding. It would have been fun to be able to take a lot of hits from the boss, with ...

I think this is a bit misleading. An experimental game is synonymous with a prototype, not it's own genre, and you seem to agree with this -- make any game and you'll show that you know how to do something. I think we have a strange loathing for games like ...

It's nice to see someone not say It's not for you, let it be . I don't think the technology is the problem, it's the content going out for its first year. I guess they believe there's an untapped market they can access rather than selling content to Xbox owners. ...

I think that we overestimate something we've never tried. There is certainly the suggestion of a macabre game that makes your heart sink, but I think there is also the suggestion of a game that doesn't abandon convention while making your trigger-pull fateful. Take this scenario: the player fast ropes ...

@Greg McClanahan I wouldn't say that games transcend art, I'd say that art is already a very confused place. Art is a big blanket that some people would like to think needs a tighter definition. Because artists are not lofty appreciators of art are lofty. @Ian Fisch Please don't troll ...
