    Holy crap, it's got a 0.4 (PS3) and 0.5 (360) user score on Metacritic. That's quite a metabombing.

    Is it me or has there been more nastiness than usual on these boards lately? Is everyone just bored waiting for Dishonored or Borderlands or something?

    They should have tried it in Australia - all they'd have to do is not dress like a ridiculous terrorist stereotype.

  4. Games with unreliable narrator player characters?

    Playing through LA Noire has really got me thinking about how developers can effectively screw with players' expectations of being in control of and seeing the whole story of a player character. I've...

    So hard to choose... I'd say Activision has it by a nose as the most outright 'evil' publisher. EA's evility affects me to a greater degree as they publish more games I want to play, so I dislike...

    They do? I haven't bought a Ubisoft title for years, and there's been all of one I've even considered getting. (and no, I don't mean I've been pirating them instead)

    Thanks guys for the replies, because there were different opinions over whether Cole did choose at the last minute to die or just didn't have time to escape, I'm going to assume the ambiguity was...

    Yay, this sounds exciting, too bad it could be a while til it comes out. I want to see what Team Bondi can do to build on some of the mechanics etc established in LA Noire.
  9. Question for those who've finished LA Noire *spoilers*

    So, I just finished LA Noire - very late to the party, I know. Great ending, really nailed the noir-ness. The whole thing's probably the most cinematic game I've ever played, though whether that's a...

    New Vision's nice and all, but there's only so much they can do with the existing engine etc.

    Well there you have it, Warren Spector is all for a HD remake of Deus Ex.

    Nice video. I liked the Suikoden bit, from what he said it's obvious that's where the bit in Deus Ex where you can defend...

    The real-time conversation system from Alpha Protocol should probably get a mention here.

    Well there's my word of the day, thanks.

    My comments weren't about my own purchasing habits - I (foolishly?) buy games new all the time - but about the industry trend towards Day 1 DLC, and...

    You can have all the reasonable arguments in the world for releasing day 1 DLC, if the customer perceives he or she is getting screwed it will still hurt your brand image, as we've seen with Bioware,...

    Bah, I use OpenOffice every day for my work, and it works great for me.

    Like many others, I also was expecting this. As a primarily single-player gamer, they got too much MMO in my SP game to appeal to me - but they also got too much SP in their MMO to appeal to MMO fans.

    I thought it was an interesting way to introduce the combat system, but why do you dislike the trope? I've played other games where that happens but off the top of my head I can't think of any other...

    Agreed that this is a problem with RPGs - there aren't that many which don't have pretty boring openings. Not a PC game, but Chrono Cross had an interesting approach with a "flash forward" to a part...

    Trainspotting's a great movie. I recently realised that Johnny Lee Miller played Sick Boy and Zero Cool/Crash Override (Hackers) in the same year.

    They're made for a certain demographic. I believe in the UK they're called anoraks? Trainspotter types, basically.

    I'm generally ambivalent to mildly interested about achievements. I think MS had it right with the gamerscore, it lends a lot more weight to XBL/GFWL achievements. Seeing as how so many games share...
