    The fighting engine sounds interesting, and I have no objection to a short game - you could easily clear Vanquish in a few hours, but the fun was in playing and replaying it. But those minigame bits...

    "Should not" as in people should not feel the desire to make a literal murder simulator with no point other than cheap thrills, maybe. But I'll stick by my conviction it shouldn't be illegal. Let it...

    So now we know Helio owns a dog that warps from place to place while his back's turned, like some kind of four-legged, hairy creepyWatson.

    Perhaps, but I'm pretty sure the Warriors game was fairly well received by most. I liked what little I played of it.

    Much as I loved True Romance - at least at the time - 1) it's a Tony Scott film, and 2) it's undeniably pure adolescent wish-fulfilment. Beautifully put together, IMO, and I remember thinking it was...

    Yeah, no interest in playing LoG2 - I'm not that nostalgic for old-school dungeon crawlers (even though I played Dungeon Master back in the day) and I don't like the sort of puzzles it seems to revel...

    As far as I remember Tarantino's original draft for Natural Born Killers was very different from Stone's movie, and he hated the finished result. I include the qualifier that I watched it ages ago -...

    Eh, it's not as if it should be illegal to develop such a game - not without any actual proven link between simulated violence and the real thing. People should feel an obligation to point and laugh...

    Chapter 9 of The Evil Within. Jesus, the Keeper fight (mister safe-for-a-head) was annoying. It's not really that tough, but the game tries to pretend otherwise by throwing in an arbitrary time limit...

    Shotgun ammo is scarce, IMO, and it's not guaranteed to knock them over at range (even with a headshot - it can just take off half their head and leave them standing). If you do knock them over at...
