Re: Game of the Decade?

I had hoped to consolidate my few loose thoughts into something more readable or interesting, but I ended up churning out the following topics as a response to what should be considered a game...

Re: Ps2 controllers?

Hey, jhonny2125,

Turbo buttons are normally found in non-official controllers. Turning them on simulates the act of pressing the corresponding button, only in an extremely fast and continuous...

Re: WoW Cataclysm

The more I think about it, the more I like Cataclysm as a concept. I still think nothing in the expansions comes near the vibrancy of the original Kalimdor and Azeroth areas, so this seems like an...

Re: Bang Bang, Is Creativity Dead?

There is a marked absence of individual authorial voices in an industry that is already very homogeneous. Since the average cost of production for one next-gen game is so high nowadays, it's not...

Re: What are you playing?

Hardly next-gen, but I am playing Okami on the PS2 for the first time. There's really no excuse for having taken this long; the game's strict adherence to Zelda formulas is offset by its appealing...

Re: What do you listen to while gaming?

For logistic reasons (my gaming room has no hi-fi), I normally just listen to the game itself, and allow the grating and repetitive soundtracks to get on my nerves and affect my criticism of the...

Re: What's your favourite videogame spot?

This is something I have always admired - and intuitively search for - in videogames: the ability to place you in a vivid, unreal world.

World of Warcraft: there is almost no environment in this...

Re: Beautiful Prince of Persia E3 Trailer

I'm interested now. Even though it looks like Wind Waker meets Ico (would that be Farah again?), mixed with the old PoP platforming, it already soothes my mind to think it probably won't be another...

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Finished Portal. I have a hard time remembering the last time I played a game with such childish glee. This game is just playful. The humour is delightful, shrewd and fresh. It's a puzzle game at...

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

Just thought I'd bump this because I finished Bad Mojo Redux for the PC as well and can agree with most of these sentiments. It wasn't that the plot was exactly silly; ghost stories are usually this...

Re: Austria-switzerland Euro 2008

Well that was surprising to say the least. Hopefully this will put the heat on the Squadra Azzura to make a good stand against France, which had a disappointing start of their own. Are the absences...

Re: Anybody here has their own blog?

Actually, - and that was the root of my astonishment- there was nothing remotely unbelievable in my narrations. Too sincere for light and bubbly web reading? Perhaps...

Re: Anybody here has their own blog?

I tend to regard it as just another outlet of thoughts. A specific channel where certain, determined chains of thought are developed. Just as there are some passages I keep for my notebooks, some...

Re: What Are You Reading Right Now?

I haven't been reading much. Voltaire's "Candide et autres contes" have occupied my mind, as has Saramago's "The Duplicate Man". When I wish for a break, I turn to the light Warlord Chronicles by...

Re: Rez HD

Just to be needlessly precise, Rez met a European DC release as well. Prior to Rez HD, the Dreamcast version played through the VGA adapter arguably provided the best and most vibrant experience. The...

Re: Culdcept Saga is OUT

I would dearly love to join you, but it seems this isn't getting released any time soon in Europe. Intentionally? I don't know, but they region-locked the discs so we wouldn't be able to import them....

Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

I finally managed to finish Mass Effect after a brief hiatus (Paragon Male Shep Soldier), and I would be hard-pressed to name a finer game of last year. Still, I am a little disappointed to see the...

This seems to be available for Euro XBLAs as well, which makes it awfully tempting to dust off the old brick and download a game that I already own three times...

Re: You need to play Passage.

How many lifetimes can there be in five minutes? And how many different ways to deal with the inevitable burden of death when they expire?

The simple eloquence of this little game is nothing short...

Re: Super Mario Galaxy

- In particular, the...

Re: Super Mario Galaxy

I've just spent a couple of hours with the game and am delighted so far. What can I say except that this is a Mario game, a true Mario experience that allows you to roam, jump, punch and dive through...

Re: Did Miyamoto Copy Insomniac?

Taken for its core mechanics, Psychonauts is mediocre at best. There is perhaps a case to be made that an adventure game mold would serve this game's script more favourably. Certainly as an old...
