    Call me crazy, but I'm tempted by defiance for just over a fiver. Looked half decent from the odd gameplay video i've seen and player numbers, as of may, are reportedly over 1 million.

    Nothing makes a first person game (i hesitate to use the word "shooter") feel more "on-rails" than the inability to surmount small rocks via leaping :/ This is pretty horrible news.

    Just to make sure i've got this straight: you mean there's no jump button? I can't just jump whenever I like? That seems a bit of a strange decision...

    Yeah I have no idea if he'll pull off half of what he has in mind. It does tickle my anxiety gland. I funded both though, so hopefully one of them will pay off :D

    Sorry I probably wasn't clear enough in my initial post. I wasn't really talking about Twilight itself, but rather Twilight-style fiction. Seems to me if we're complaining about the ubiquity if that...

    I dunno. I fear the audience for Twilight-esque tween emo-romance fiction is at least as big as the audience for Tom Clancy-esque spy fiction. Maybe I'm a cynic, but anecdotally I reckon most...

    Indeed. There is, without question, a cult-of-valve amongst PC gamers.

    I watched that vid last night, having already seen bits of it at E3, and I am still living in hope of this coming to PC. I agree nothing about it is especially ground-breaking, but something about it...

    There are plenty of "static health" shooters where it is beneficial to your playstyle to use cover, sticky or not. I think the best way to phrase it is to say that shooters with regenerative health...

    I'd agree it depends entirely on the sort of person you are. It needn't hold true for everyone to have an impact on sales. I think the effect on day one/impulse buying is much bigger anyway. I.e....

    I'm an advocate of game demos, but I don't think it's as preposterous as some people are making out that they have an impact on initial sales volumes. I can believe impulse buys and pre-orders are...

    A friend of mine and I got it cheap to play co-op, and were disappointed to find that co-op wasn't the same as the single player game. We tried it for a bit anyway, but for whatever reason, disliked...

    There are people who believe that though, and depending on what they mean by "should never", that view could end up being more offensive than the jokes they're complaining about. People don't have a...

    Irritates me so much in Bioshock Infinite. Some of the tougher, pseudo-boss-like enemies are just ammo sinks. "Tactics" are reduced to avoiding the death they rain down on you for long enough to pour...

    I suppose it's just a question of personal judgement. I don't play that many games and think "I'd happily trade some of the detail in these textures for more variety". In fact, most of the time,...

    But I don't see games as a replacement for that. I see them as an extension of it. They feed into your imagination and play off it, they don't replace it. It's an oft-repeated myth that audio-visual...

    Ok, but whether "story" is part of the definition of "game" is just internet semantics and is beside the point. By removing story from the equation you just reduce the meaning of "game" to something...
