I can’t wait for the next Mass Effect on iPad.
Losing the 3D animations that hurt my head, but overcompensating with simplicity.
Oh, wow. Can’t wait. (To finally, completely justify my PS3 purchase.)
That walkthrough is really well done, and makes me want to try and play it. Which is quite an achievement for a strategy game. (And, damn, I just got a computer that is actually capable of playing it.)
Snicker snicker laugh laugh.
I’d probably call this an in-engine scripted demo rather than actual gameplay, but the point is that it shows the universe, characters, and weapons, and it looks fucking amazing. And if you’re gonna buy the game you should probably not watch this video, nor read any coverage of the game, to get as little of the discovery spoiled for yourself as possible.
I wouldn’t mind the zombies so much if the shooting mechanic was better — but I still would mind. Not every single fucking game needs Zack.
“Every video game franchise will eventually devolve into featuring zombie nazis from outer space. When that happens, the franchise is lost.”
I guess I’m thankful Civilization V has no Mac version. Booting in Windows is too stressful for me to buy a PC game.
A bit disappointed by the Enslaved demo: movement feels somewhat awkward, animations don’t chain well, and the camera’s got a mind of its own.
The friends list in “LEGO Universe” acts similarly to Wii Friend Codes. In order for players to become friends, they have to communicate outside of the game world, share eachother’s “LEGO Universe” IDs and then send invites to one another. You’re not even notified if you receive an invite, which means the only way you’d be able to accept it is if you communicated with your real-life friend outside of the game and worked everything out.
Emphasis mine. That’s clever. (For the audience they’re targeting.)
Now I’m worried.
