    I think there's something interesting here though - Dooms levels (other than a couple of exceptions) were completely linear but they *felt* much more open because they would loop around and back on...

    Cheers guys, from this and poking around the internet it seems the 16-bit versions were *really* gimped. theForged's description pretty much mirrors my experience. I also remember the manual being...

    Explain Syndicate for me

    What with Satellite Rain news today (which looks lovely and I have no bad comments about), and clearly being a spiritual sequel to Syndicate makes me ask one question - Wasn't Syndicate a bit...

    Co-op game recommendations?

    I could really do with some co-op games that work over the internet, with some annoyingly specific criteria:

    1. Needs to work on PC and Mac at the same time
    2. Internet co-op (ie. not local)
    3....

    Usually these days prerendered cutscenes are used to hide loading screens - you can ditch all of the old level and load in the new level while the cutscene is playing. If you skip the cutscene, do...

    Have an internet high five.

    Sadly I know of no modern games in a similar style to SF2 on pc (or any other format). Xcom came closest to scratching that itch recently.

    Partially disagree - Rymdkapsel does a really good job of letting you build a space station (dungeon) with a minimal interface. Obviously they had to simplify a few things, but it's much more...

    Yeah, that was my first thought as well. I hope that is his focus because when I (briefly) tried an Oculus the latency was really immersion breaking (much more so than the low-ish resolution).

    Personally I see this as a good thing - the bosses seem deliberately set up to test certain aspects of your character, or to be highly effective against certain builds. For instance Capra demon...

    The problem is when a game is too big/long to warrant multiple play-throughs, and people have a ton of mods installed for their first time through the game, and then form their opinion based on that...

    Man, look how low-res those textures are. This is some lazy-ass console port bullshit right here.

    As someone who's never been hugely excited by any MMOs, I feel that they desperately need to break away from being completely combat centered.

    I'd love XCOM to have a post-battle option to let you watch it again, but in real time. All the same turns, actions and results, but played out simultaneously. When watched from that perspective I'd...

    Yeah, I had that. Playing things fast and loose and improvising was certainly more fun, but the harsh penalties for loosing a person strongly discourage you from playing that way. Which is a shame....

    I certainly felt that a vanilla sniper with no skills was much less useful than they felt like they should have been.

    Ugh. I have no idea what MS were thinking when they decided that the 360 pad would require an API all of it's own, other than to deliberately make things harder for everyone involved. :(

  20. Game controls: are 'pad only' games acceptable?

    I'm prototyping a game idea right now, and for me a game has to start with the control scheme first, and build the game around it. Obviously for some genres (eg. FPS) the decisions are trivial, but...
