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…

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.…

Who gets gaming shame....?

Gaming Shame :  

1) The shame a person feels when they just screwed up and their team has died and lost the match because of it.

2) The shame a person feels when they play a video game, but feel that they should be doing something that would be more productive.

I dont know about you guys, but I run into this more often than not, and its why I dont game as much as I used to.

Like a kid again

Yesterday I drove to my local store to get a new toner for my printer and, as usual, had a look around the gaming section. I was browsing the PS4 games when I heard two kids playing on an exhibition machine i couldn't see around the corner. "What a great game!" "I love this game sooooo much!" "Wow look at that!". The kids where just gasping at what they saw onscreen. "My mother is going to get me this game!" one of them said. "I'm so lucky!!!" The other kid just sighed. "I'm really lucky,…
