I can’t wait to find out how Act 2 resolves Broken Age’s plot twists — it could go very wrong or very right.
Great start with Dark Souls — I’ve killed the first quest giver (it’s all you taught me!), and it looks like I have to restart the game.
I really need to uninstall Steam so I stop buying cheap indie games that end up being unplayable because they never went through any QA.
Memories! Vintage ugliness!
Gorgeous. The puzzles will frustrate me and I’ll never finish it, but I can’t wait.
I received my PS4 yesterday so I just turned on my PS3 to give The Last of Us a second chance. I know.
I’ll grant you that one thing The Last of Us does really well is the environments are depressingly realistic.
Where The Walking Dead relies entirely on its characters, Last of Us really makes you feel like those buildings were all lived in, until.
There’s just no excuse for a mostly single-player game choosing not to pause the action while you select a weapon.
To be fair, The Last of Us is spectacularly front-loaded on annoyances and there may be sequences I kind of enjoyed in the second half.
Shocked by people defending how TLoU’s end forces you to act against your will. Does gaming have to renounce interactivity to become art?
Playing Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry is making me lose confidence in AC: Unity and Watch Dogs. Old open world formula is showing its seams.
Dayum. And I’m not even as madly in love with Garrus as most of the internet is.
You’ve got to wonder how much better Watch Dogs might be if Aiden Pearce simply didn’t know how to drive. Not just because the driving is bad (which it is), but nothing makes an open world feel more limited and artificial than running red lights through the entire city in the very first mission. Of course, it’s pretty much impossible to imagine selling a present-day sandbox game that doesn’t allow players to drive.
It’s a shame, really. If it weren’t for the terrible lead voice actor and the unpleasant driving, Watch Dogs could be quite good. But there’s a lot of driving, and a lot of talking — boy does he like to hear the sound of his own inner voice.
The more troubling aspect, though, and the reason I’m not optimistic about the franchise’s future, is that both the acting and the driving are clearly matters of artistic direction, not technical incompetence.
