Baseless conspiracy theories are pretty evil, too.
Titanfall is a very good game with an incredible sense of momentum. But I can see why respawn refuses to implement wall running/pilots in apex legends. Considering you can’t just respawn after a short cooldown, having to deal with an opponent that has that degree of speed and mobility would be an absolute nightmare.… Read more
As a dev working working some hardcore end-game Raid content for a famous shooter-looter a few years ago I added a door with a button that looked like a riddle to get access to some loot. The button was just connected to a “change button to a random color” and I duplicated the setup right a little further this time… Read more
When he's done he'll be roughly the size of 2333 barges
I think in the context of a series that’s almost 20 years old, with so many entries, it’s perfectly acceptable to both compare it to that series, and talk about what you think the series should have done by now. Which means talking about what it didn’t do. Plenty of game reviews should, have, and will talk about what… Read more
As a Montréaler myself, I must send this link in any lessons or discussions about Québécois french. It’s like maple syrup sharing:
I can’t remember if it was THE first, but Jurassic Park: The Lost World was one of the first console games with an original orchestrated score, at the behest of Sir Steven himself, who called Giacchino “a young John Williams” during that game’s production.
There’s a nice symmetry here since Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino (LOST, bunch of Pixar movies, etc) got his start composing video games, including the original Medal of Honor.
Sure, and damage control, in this instance isn’t necessarily bad, right? “We messed up, here is what you want.” seems like an okay sentiment?
Note to devs: “Forced” PVP in what is seemingly a PVE game is never a good idea. Saying “Ohh its optional” (as long as you dont mind missing out on events, loot, and new gear) doesnt cut it. Read more
Technically the turf war game is an homage to the great turf war. They’re basically just playing war based on a real Race War™. The Octo expansion dlc also pretty much settles the war and octolings are now free to live on the surface.
Yeah, and in the Salmon Run mode, they were literally stealing the roe of the Salmonids to sell to a giant faceless energy conglomerate. At least it seems some of them feel bad about it now....
Are you a Twitch PR employee? Because you sound like it.
I feel so cynical and nihilistic watching the wealthy class clutch their pearls at another class creating market volatility. I graduated in 2011, in the middle of a “once in a lifetime” global recession that caused my industry to shrink by 30-40%, caused by the wealthy class pulling the levers of the world economy… Read more
I feel like this has been an issue for a LOT of games - Ubisoft games specifically, but also gaming in general, everything from Horizon Zero Dawn to latter-day BioWare - and I generally pin the blame on Skyrim, if inadvertently. Lot a lot of things in gaming, it felt like other developers looked at Skyrim, said ‘oh,… Read more
