The real problem with AC unity: Ubisoft Development

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

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.…

NBA2K15 Review

The NBA2K series has been one of the most dominant franchises in gaming. While some sports franchises rely on exclusivity deals to corner the market, NBA2K was able to do it the old fashioned way: make a far superior product to your competitor, and force them to close shop. This dominance allowed NBA2K to end the last console generation as the unchallenged king of basketball video games. 2K began the new console generation with another solid entry in the series. While NBA2K14 for the PS4 and…
