    Yeah, while I guess I liked it more than you, I agree it wasn't really good enough as a game to sustain much of a longer running time. The production values lifted it up a hell of a lot, but not so...

    Eh, harmless, I guess, but it was pretty much the most offensively stupid, utterly vacant "If you die in the game, you die in real life!!11!1!1" nonsense I'd ever seen - at least Lawnmower Man 2 knew...

    Very true! But it was that opening scene that basically let me know exactly what I was in for. ;) At least it wasn't as bad as eXistenZ, or however you spell it.

    Again, can't speak specifically to Inside Out, but manipulation - even blatant emotional manipulation - is not necessarily bad. It can be bad - the opening shootout in A History of Violence, for...

    I believe that was really, really near the end anyway, and I suspect you wouldn't think the final scenes were worth the effort. I mean, I don't know that I did, even though I enjoyed the game a great...

    The Stalker games are very obviously old, and they're not terribly friendly to newcomers or less... obsessive players, but I wouldn't call them half as clunky as some. There are far more recent games...

    I don't remember if I ever finished the manga, but as far as I remember every single volume I ever read was entirely in black and white, not a single colored page.

    Uhhh. Not... really feeling that trailer, to be honest. Blame! is silence and huge empty spaces and stark black and white, not crappy CG and generic action setups. It's not Telltale adapting Bone...

    That particular pose - leaning forward, cleavage front and center - crops up quite a bit in several of the visual novels I've been playing, and it gets really, really tiresome. Shantae's version of...

    Eh, I think you're over-reacting in some respects. Going by those pictures, there's certainly an argument to be made about the identikit physiques, but if they weren't all doing those dumb anime...

    Haha, I'd be terrified to balance a PC on top of anything that narrow! Doubly so if it had wheels. It looks really good, though. How often do you have these projects on the go? Is this a serious case...
