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…

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.…

Hands on from San Diego Comic-Con 2014 Part 2

I kid you not, that monstrosity pictured above opens up and you get into a bucket seat before it closes to commence the Alien Isolation demo. It's easily 10 feet tall and most of it is shell so you can imagine how cramped it is on the inside. Uh......yeah, marketing? Again, before I…

Hands on from San Diego Comic-Con 2014

It's a truly odd year at the SDCC game wise(hence the non-gaming pic that was more exciting in all honesty). It truly is a vanilla year for games as bizarre choices and just an average effort of marketing is on display. From the recycled demo of Bayonetta 2 from the previous year to the complete absence…
