Re: Why is Halo so critically acclaimed and popular?

I have a problem with Gears of War 2 being used as an example of difficulty level design. The features that define Gears and differentiate it from other shooters are much more pronounced, and so it...

Re: Why is Halo so critically acclaimed and popular?

I'd like to ask what difficulty everyone first played it on, because that may be the issue that separates who thought of it as a straightforward shooter and who thought of it as an example of great...

Re: Why is Halo so critically acclaimed and popular?

Also, and sorry for the double post, the poor telling of Halo's story as brought up by Tim Spaeth lies within a design fault called Ludonarrative Dissonance:

Re: Why is Halo so critically acclaimed and popular?

In most FPS games, the trait that makes the biggest impression on me is how often the developers force the player to play within the original shooting (and at times, driving) mechanics. The...

Re: A sad day in gaming history

Not only does EGM go, but all of the alternative stuff that they've done with the podcasts and the videocast 1Up Show goes too.

I'm shocked. I listened to three (THREE) of their podcasts over the...

Re: Why I don't love Portal

Agreed. Contextually, it was supposed to be this kind of small add-on bonus that made Orange Box a better deal, but when people saw that the people working on it had put just as much effort into it...

Re: GOTY thread

Really, immersive? I would think that Fable 2 is almost the opposite of immersive. It seems like the game knows its own ridiculousness and prides itself in it. But hey, if it worked for you.

I'd...

Re: Examples of reviewers fired or rebuked for being too harsh?

I don't think there were any reviews pulled or scores revised in this incident, but I do remember Ubisoft getting mad at Dan Hsu from EGM/1Up for rating Assassin's Creed low. I think Ubisoft Montreal...

Re: GOTY thread

MGS4 came out this year. I'm not saying that it's GOTY material by any means, but I'm just mentioning it because it's interesting how many people proclaimed it as such and now it's being left out of...

Re: Mirror's Edge: Most Criminally Underappreciated Game of 2008

I'm going to chime in here and say that I really agree with sleeveboy's assessment of Mirror's Edge.

The thing that DICE has managed to absolutely NAIL is the control. The main character moves...

Re: World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King

Oh, and by the way, if you plan to level a Death Knight, spec Unholy. Not only does it do great AoE damage and quite good single-target damage, but there's nothing funnier than to be attacked by a...

Re: World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King

I totally agree with the Death Knight thing. It's a really good combination of melee and spell-play that feels really powerful. That's mostly because I've got a bunch of blues that up my stats a lot...

Re: World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King

I'm holding off for a couple of days while I get my new mage alt up to 70. I'm kind of in the same boat with Mike here in that none of my 70s look like they have really fun spells or talents in the...

Re: I Wish I had Picked Up that Game when I had the Chance...

Finding Marvel vs Capcom 2 for the PS2 is terrible. I've always wanted to play that with the PS2 pad but now it fetches at least 60 to 80 bucks a copy and I don't want to play it that badly.

I...

Re: Xbox 360 defects: an inside history of Microsoft’s video game console woes

I bought mine around the time that GRAW came out, so a couple of months after launch, and I haven't had mine red ring yet. I don't know if I'm just taking really really good care of mine but it...

Re: Games that Drop in Fall

Left 4 Dead looks extremely interesting, and not just because it's a zombie game. I really like zombie games though. I'm interested in what Valve's team does with the survival genre by bringing it to...

Re: Braid anyone?

I do agree that some of the puzzles may be challenging for quite a few people. That's what really led to the game taking 5-7 hours for me to complete. Some of them are really really tough.

Re: Braid anyone?

I haven't finished it yet, I've completed 4 of the 5 (6? I'm pretty sure it's 5) worlds in the game and so far its taken me about 5 hours totaled over the 2 days I've played it. In retrospect, it was...

Braid anyone?

So I tried the demo, loved it, and immediately bought it, 1200 point cost be damned.

(That might have something to do with the fact that I already had 200 points so all I needed was a 1000 point...

Re: Ninja Gaiden 2

I haven't played the game yet, but from what I can see from my cousin's playtime and various videos I've seen, it DOES look like more of the same.

Which might be the cause of all the "bad" reviews...

Re: Dynasty Warriors 6 – Review

It seems like all the mainstream press coverage of the Dynasty Warriors series is centered on the fact that it doesn't progress as much as other games every year. This leads me to think that a lot of...

Re: MGS4 Anyone?

I still can't get into MGS3. I've just got past the part where I go back into a base and meet up with some person, and I haven't played that much of a game.

It says I've logged 2 hours, but I've...

Re: MGS4 Anyone?

I was afraid of that.

For some reason, I've liked each iteration of the MGS series less with each sequel released. Maybe I could forgive the first one because it was released on the PS1, but I...

Re: Review Bribery?

This is where game criticism would come in handy, as opposed to a review.

The only people interested in MGS4 are the people who are going to buy it regardless of any review, and the people who...
