    For me id was "over" the second John Romero left.

    Yea yea, Daikatana bla bla bla... but that dude was the creative backbone of the studio for me. And it shows in the post-Romero output of the...

    I warmly recommend that you watch "Rembrand's J'Accuse" by Peter Greenway; just to get the sense of what a PAINTING can do in the storytelling realm.

    I found myself incisively nodding in agreement as I was reading through this post. Very well said.

    The novel has indeed clouded people's idea of what a story is/can be; even worse it has defined a...

    The article is quite good, that's why I linked it/started this thread. But I also found the argument to be flawed because it looks through the prism of cinema to argue that games and story are not a...

    I see no reason why a game can't have both (unless we're talking Tetris or Minecraft), and do both exceptionally well.

    Like Skyrim could have had a great story, if the story embraced the open...

    Silent Hill 2.

    Muddy, pixelated, shitty graphics make scary games even scarier. It makes the monsters even more frightening because your eyes cannot make out the fine details and your brain has to...

    Also 28 here. The stupidity of teenagers pisses me off when I'm around them, no matter of the gender :P

    True enough. To be honest I miss the old days where demos where almost mandatory for most games... Like the Half-Life demo sold me on that game; only to find out that the demo was designed like it's...

    I don't know, like if the game demo is mediocre and I still get enough of the feel of the game it is more inclined to detract me from purchasing the full game. I personally have no time for...

    Hawken's been out for a while now; it's f2p. It has a solid community and the game is a blast for a while but I haven't played it in months. Since then they've added new mechs and maps and balance...

    Its all fiction.

    How else would you make escapist fiction that's aimed at teens? Look at Harry Potter and the like; it's way more extreme than some anime cartoon...

    If the game is amazing and that fact is clear in the demo? Quite a few I'd reckon... Otherwise none.

    Yea but that can be done server-side on the PC. Or like the "virtual game master AI" ala L4D.

    Can't it?

    With that said, I agree; the game looks like a blast. It's almost what I wish Hawken...

    Shit I love Dark Souls so I might give Dark Mode a try. The combat in TW2 is wrongly curved in difficulty, hard at start and easier as you go on. DkS has the same problem but to a much lesser extent;...

    The game looks like a blast and yeah, ActiBlizz like to keep their game with a high pricetag for a long time; save for the occasional Steam sale.

    To be honest I don't see what they're talking...

    I'm kinda worried with how truncated the game will be if they don't want to transfer those "cloud features" to the PC platform.

    Like if the PC version is the clearly inferior version of...

    Dude you should definitely play through the game at least once. It's like Game of Thrones The Game only way more colorful and exotic. Love that Slavic mythology they got going on...

    Yes, definitely.

    Not changing difficulty per se (I always play on Normal; it's what the game is designed and balanced for) but I love to switch up my playsyle. That's why I have 600+ hours in TF2,...
