Very simple discussion prompt, but what's your opinion of Anita Sarkeesian and her video series?

The real problem with AC unity: Ubisoft Development

Posted on June 17, 2014 at 5:30pm 2 Comments

I'm gonna keep this relatively concise and cut the crap out what (to some people's chargin) has been one of the gaming stories of the week. First off, I'm going to take gender completely out of the equation after this part here, it's a topic that people get sensitive and distracted about either way, and neither side really communicates anything that way. So if you're bothered by that coming up around this, read on.



The real problem is with the development process. One of two…

So this is yet another late comment on a podcast that spiraled into being too big for a comment. I re-listened to the year of aliens TAF, mulled some things over... Have a few more things to say now specific to what's said in the podcast.



I don't really agree that games are doing better than most other mediums in the slightest. The biggest and best championed…

How I turned over a New Leaf at the Animal Crossing (And then turned over a better one)

Posted on March 19, 2014 at 3:30pm 3 Comments

So there was postmortem today at GDC by Aya Kyogoku and Katsuya Eguchi, and it sparked a lot of sudden reminders of the buzz and the praise the game garnered for it's especially well written inclusive NPCs and socially progressive changes on couple of sites in the AC community. A few tweets from a one Leigh Alexander though, reminded me of some of the things we can sometimes do in these games that rails against the spirit of these games at times.…

Leigh Alexander Gets Fisked

So Leigh Alexander at Gamasutra, Luke Plunkett at Kotaku and Dan Golding (who has written for many places), have written articles on the same day, on the same subject. That's an interesting coincidence. It is also interesting that Chris Plante over at Polygon also had a very similar article, covering the same issues, on the same day though it was written more as a summary of the past week. Now there are time zones to consider but these were all published within 24…

How many hours of gaming do I have left?

So I thought it would be a good idea to do the math on how many hours of spare time I have left before I throw in the towel for good. With a sizable backlog, psplus throwing close to half a dozen games at me each month, new games coming out, two kids, some physical activity (rock climbing) and trying to get to a competent level of playing guitar, bass, piano and drums, its time for a reality check. Unsurprisingly, the math is not in my favor. 

In the last few years, I have not had…
