    Vice City was responsible for one of those magical moments of gaming you get every so often.

    Driving along the Vice City beach on a scooter, wearing a suit with the sleeves rolled up and Spandau...

    I'm a big fan of GTAV. Gameplay aspect aside (where other titles have done certain parts as good or better than) it's just the world that it takes place in that enthralls me.

    You're quite right. When I originally wrote the post I missed out the phrase "mainstream". Papers, Please was the specific example I was thinking of when I clarified it as "mainstream."

    I think I'd quite like to see a little more variety in the political discussion being held around gaming. A lot of the current discussion and debates are centred around gender (and LGBT/race, but to...

    I quite often end up having the same kind of thoughts. For me it's normally when they (people on the feminist side of the argument) have misconstrued some statistics or massively oversimplified...

    I had a lot of trouble with him myself. I was playing as knight style character (bastard sword, Drangleic shield/armour) and I just couldn't get past him. His attacks were too powerful to block, and...

    Agh, stupid King Vendrick. Without giving too much away, I'm fighting him in the correct way, with everything I need but because he's a boss that does far too much damage (health and stamina) per...

    For some reason I had tremendous difficulty with him, more than I had with just about every other boss (currently about 2/3 through).

    I initially tried blocking with a 100% damage reduction shield...

    Well, the same thing happened as happens in all Soul's games for me. Ran up against a boss where I just could not beat him. banged my head against him for about an hour with one particular equipment...

    The Last of Us was very linear but it was handled in a very good way. It always felt like you were exploring towards your goal, rather than being railroaded there.

    In terms of AAA the only two...

    Mass Effect 3?

    Although I initially wasn't too happy with being railroaded into plying the online multiplayer, I ended up rather enjoying it. Much more than I thought I would.

    Just finished this. What a great game. With just two minor flaws, in my opinion.

    The boss fights seemed a little arbitrary as to which ones kill you and which don't, depending on build, general...

    Sif was a great boss fight, but because of the order I did things in, I had had no contact with him before the fight. So to me I touched a giant sword, a wolf then turned up and fought me for no...

    I'm not sure I'd say the plot is great. The lore, setting, richness of the in-game world and so one are pretty great, but the plot itself is pretty forgettable.

    Going back to an Amiga game, the indoor FPS sections of Jurassic Park used to scare me. Partially because of the context sensitive music, where it changed to a more intense music when there was a...

    I quite like this card shenanigan business. Fairly non intrusive and it's nudging me back into playing some games (Gratuitous Space Battles) I might not otherwise have replayed.

    One of the best compromises was the 1999 Aliens vs Predators. No saving within each level but progress was saved between levels. True tension but all progress wasn't lost upon death.

    I can't remember the figures off hand but the Harry Potter stuff still skewed towards boys, more so than you'd think considering the wide appeal of the books/films.

    I think it's about as complicated (roughly) as the other stuff for that age group. It's less complicated than the Star Wars for example, but the Star Wars stuff is aimed a bit older.

    That's really not the case. The Lego Friends stuff is at least as complicated as the more boy oriented Star Wars/Harry Potter stuff of a similar size, all of which is itself a lot more complicated...

    Is it the objectification causing that though? I would have thought it was more homophobia, denigration of masculinity etc.

    As men being hit on by women show different (on average) reactions to...
