I am certainly a heck of a lot more impressed with Hellblade than Lawbreakers right now. It 's a very obviously focused high quality experience with a clear vision, which I 'm not getting from Lawbreakers. r n r n 'Indie AAA ' and 'AA ' are both terrible as ...

Our patent system sure is AWSUM. This is a societally and technologically worthless patent that patents the existence of an entire class of obvious device which has prior art. Well, Nintendo 's certainly used to this by now. r n r nThe best I can say is that Gamevice isn ...

I was impressed by this game - there 's a flood of lazy VNs and dating sims on Steam, and sorry up front this looked like another gimmick cash-grab. But there was enough buzz that I took a look even though dating dads isn 't my thing. Relevant to the ...

Huh, I see Edith Finch ...

Huh, I see Edith Finch as a great argument for how games are indisputably better than movies or books /for some things/. You 're getting involved with the characters, you 're playing their deaths at your own pace this is your 'deeper thematic play ' . There 's no way ...

'So, Shiggy Mind if I call you Shiggy It worked great for Sonic, why not Mario ' r n r n Sorry Davide, I can tell you approached this in all seriousness .

My favorite 'small dumb thing ' in Pyre is the way the way the wagon bounces all over the place and just leaps over the edge of the map when it needs to transition. It 's a little Chuck Jones cartoon character. r n r nAnd I 'm sure that ...

I mostly agree, but the biggest problem is that most games aren 't bad, they 're just meh. If you 're playing 'Road to Hell: Retribution ', you 're playing an obviously bad game, and that 's interesting But if you 're playing something like Kane or Lynch 2, Homefront, ...

This is the reason I dropped Angry Birds 2 like a hot turd after being initially excited about it. Even worse, they broke the addictive instant retry loop so they could show you the ads. r n r nBut most mobile players seem perfectly happy to be abused, cajoled, prodded, ...

Fantastic list of risks. I 've played far too many games that used bad skill/item based gating because they want to be like Zelda. But when it appears you might be able to get there now and you spend 15 minutes looking for secret triggers or doors to no avail ...
