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.…

What We’re Watching:…

AC: Unity - The good, the bad and the ugly

The good:

- Graphics. It looks stunning and the amount of NPC's roaming through the city give the game a nice ambiance and make the city come to life like no other game has ever done before.

- Interiors. Much more inside buildings now. Fast short cuts through a house or complete missions taking place in a palace. Not every house is accessible but there is plenty of them to make it divers. 

- Riddles. Less hand holding this game. Riddles and murder cases to tease the…

Hatred is not about violence & here's why

PSA: Nothing I am saying is meant to be inflammatory or antagonizing. I am simply informing you the reader on my personal take of the Hatred controversy now that it has been several weeks and we can really take a step back to examine what the issue is.

 

The Hatred controversy is not about Violence in video games... Hatred is not about Grand Theft Auto, Hatred is not about Halo, heck Hatred is not about Boondock Saints or even Sons of Anarchy. Hatred is about Columbine, there I…
