But... I was told he'd come back to aggressively educate everyone on a potential future Ninja Gaiden podcast... My hopes and dreams... Extinguished in an instant. :(

Re: Your favorite 'narrative + mechanics' implementation(s)

I've always liked the way that some of the Fire Emblem games weave gameplay and characterization together in the form of the support and permadeath systems. The player is encouraged to develop strategies around certain character pairings, which in turn unlock support conversations that add to their ...

Re: Rise of the Far-Right Worldwide

Being at the arse end of the globe (ie Australia) I'm aware that my input and opinions are not equal, at all, to those who actually live in the US. Maybe not "equal", no, but outside opinions and perspectives often have a very underappreciated quality: namely dispassionate objectivity. There is a h...

Re: Rise of the Far-Right Worldwide

I think you make some really good points but I dont fully beleieve that humans need a cycle of violence to fall in line All I'm saying is that violence is a very real part of human nature and that pretending it doesn't exist on account of living in a time of relative peace and prosperity is not wis...

Re: Rise of the Far-Right Worldwide

I think it's a combination of different factors. First of all, and I may be outing myself as a bit of a misanthrope here, but basic human nature is not pretty. It's easy to forget that if you happen to live in a time of relative peace and comfort. People always find it much easier to start killing e...

A long and really interesting analysis of them, in the style you might expect from someone like Matthewmatosis , except it d...

Re: Games completed 2016

Oh, that's right. The first Metroid Prime had a secret epilogue that depended on your item collection rate. So not everyone saw it. Quite a good guess on your part, then!

@Scrustle:
Well, regarding your spoiler... I always thought that was implied strongly enough. Makes very little doubt in my mind. A cutscene dedicated to it would have felt borderline redundant.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

That sounds awfully naive but, crucially, I missed out on almost the entire PS2 generation. So with the odd exception here and there (GTA), think of me as someone that went from Metal Gear Solid on PS1 to Oblivion on PS3! I simply did not know how to engage with those new forms of experiences. Talk...

Re: Licensed Games You're Shocked Haven't Been Made Yet

Speaking of Spider-Man and other comic book properties, I've always felt that the fantastic zero-G sections in Dead Space 2 and 3 would have provided a really solid mechanical basis for an Iron Man game. Visceral really nailed the look and feel of navigating a high-tech powered exoskeleton throughou...

Re: What games were you not allowed to play/do you not let your kids play?

I don't recall my parents ever introducing any strict rules in regards to what I could and could not play. My mom did however have a bit of a tinfoil hat phase going on during which she would ban the use of electrical devices attached to power outlets (on account of it being a leading cause of death...

You also reminded me, I have never played Burnout but have always wanted to, a racer where the whole point is to crash in the most spectacular way possible? Count me in! :D I would definitely play a new one if it came out. If you're really interested in giving the franchise a try, then you don't ha...

Re: Which Studios Should Acquire Dormant IP?

Yeah, Burnout is another series I'd really like to see come back. The thing is, it kind of is! Honestly I wouldn't trust today's Criterion to make a new Burnout, since that studio isn't what they used to be. The good news is that the people from the studio who were responsible for making it what it...

You mentioning Kojima reminded me of another too! I'd really like to see them get back the IP to Zone of the Enders. They were already working on a third game when the whole Konami thing went down, only dubbed Project Enders at the time, and it looked really cool. I'd love to see how that kind of g...

Re: Which Studios Should Acquire Dormant IP?

It's amusing that you feel 1 was more tightly designed, when in actuality that was the one that was mostly strung together on the fly (and had by a long way the longest development time), and its the later games that had a tighter design process. The later games were specifically targeted at a more...
